Thats it..

Getting admission in a good school.
Scoring great marks, leading in sports.
Getting admission in a brilliant college.
Landing with a well paying job.
Purchasing a beautiful house and a big car.
Buying designer wear, jewellery, watches.
Giving education to your children in the best schools.

It all amounts to nothing. Underneath it all lies the basic emotion to be loved/ appreciated/ accepted, be it though making people accept you through your etiquites or through your money and power..

And the rest, its nothing..

You speak the thoughts in my head.

I kinda learnt it the hard way. Yeh, the basic emotions form the foundation.

its just living i guess. I mean, if i didn't exist? wouldn't have made a difference. If we die tomorrow, just a few emotions count. that's all.
"good life". as long as u think ur living great. rest of the world doesn't matter.

Never mind. It was a vain effort to try and disagree.
But you know what, you are right.

lets just say i'm either leaving the dream or so screwed up - and i'm still kinda figuring which extreme will lead to my equilibrium!

and that's what it's all about ain't it..? equilibrium?
