Charlie Brown in Peanuts cartoon: “Someday, we will die, Snoopy.”
Snoopy: “True, but on all other days, we will not.”
As simple as it may appear, the response seems to be profound and something which most of us take it as granted. Do we really think of doing something great, something different, every day when we get up and realize that we are alive?
News media, these days, seem to be creating enough negativity by showing the news that can generate more TRP rather than bringing out more good, genuine and inspirational news. Obviously, the moment you read newspapers daily, the first thought is – “How I can survive in this world today?”, “How am I going to tackle today’s problems and issues – be it at office or household?” By the time we solve some issues (if at all) the issues for that day, we tend to convince ourselves that we have done a great job, accomplished something and have a right to feel tired! The moment we fool ourselves of this last bit – so called “tiredness”, we are ready to procrastinate rest of the activities easily. Facebook, WhatsApp (as if we spend less time on Facebook and WhatsApp throughout the day) or TV (or these days, YouTube videos) get lined up to “relax” (or should I say for further wastage of time?).
