How are you?

Whenever we meet someone, this is what we ask. Right? Umm..well yes. Have we asked are you happy?

Exactly. No. We don’t. Why?

Because, we are fine. Aren’t we?

Caught up in the chains of life,

Each moment is thought and then taken. Why? Why can’t we just plunge?

That doesn’t happen because what would the world say?

The pinch of judgement mode kills us.

Prejudices about the other is like predicting the actual what the other knows.

But, do we ever question? I am sure we do.

Just within. Never in the limelight.

Ah. Now that’s what we say ,

Hey. I am fine. How about you?

  1. “Caught up in the chains of life.” — what a beautiful way to put it down, Natasha! You have penned down the utmost truths of everyday living and survival. We ask indeed, “How are you?” as a formality, but never, “Are you happy?” , though we all know that happiness is everything that really matters!
    You’re doing a wonderful job, honey! So much love on the way! 😗😍🤗
