I guess with age one can get philosophical and it helps.
You have a party invite for a Sunday evening and you are excited about going for the same. So you are planning to go for it, and suddenly you get a call saying ‘Mr. X is dead…and we need to attend the funeral’.
So at 3pm you attend the funeral, go home take a bath and at 6pm you are at the party.
Do you go to the funeral and tell the people there
‘Why did this man die and spoil my mood for the party?’
or tell the others at the funeral ‘Arre do not be so downcast, there is a party in the evening?’
or Do you go to the party and
say a) how can you guys be enjoying…a man has died….
or b) I am just coming from a funeral…so I will not party, you guys should also look glum
That is because we human beings understand our roles clearly. We know that at the funeral we are playing our part and at the party we are again playing our part. It does not matter at all to us where we are, we do not mix. Yes if you are very sad about the funeral, we may not go for the party. Or if the person who has died is not close enough, we may not go for the funeral – that is about all.
WE CANNOT AND DO NOT MIX.
Similarly i have a set of readers who can tell me the following:
– Subra your site is awesome
– I read your blog regularly without fail. Now my wife, sister, mother, girlfriend…all of them also read it.
– I like your dry sense of humor and sarcasm
– blah blah blah
and then tell you the following too:
Subra here is a statement of my ULIPs
I recently bought a house but have kept it locked because the current yield of rent is too low
I have borrowed Rs. 98 lakhs to buy a house. This loan is at 11%. I have Rs. 43 lakhs in my PPF, ….et al
Why does this happen?
Read the earlier part of the post – they think this blog is intellectual and not practical. So they read and they love it. Then they do what they continue to do.
Should I feel worried? No.
Is it contradictory? No.
After all you went to the funeral, went home took bath and went to the party, right?
So far all my ‘friends’, friends from BNI (the Givers Gain Guys n Gals), classmates, colleagues, readers, people who comment, students, customers please continue what you are doing. Change is inconvenient, I agree.
After all do you see me without sarcasm?
