As Dr Bhataudekar says:'Man eez also A social enimal'.We all find the need for company. Someone to talk all those random thoughts in your head to. All those things that your family would dismiss as 'pointless'. Yeah,friends basically. And we keep making new ones. Friends are supposed to be those with whom you can be yourself. But is that the only time we can be ourselves? Why do I get the feeling that thats the case with most people in this world.
When we are at a social gathering,we inevitably end up meeting new people. But why is it that we have to pretend to be someone else?The same kind of personality EVERYONE else chooses to be?Why do we all greet that new person in the same way?Pretend to like all those same things that the world likes?Pretend to be polite when you may not really be?And,possibly the most potent, pretend to have a good sense of humour? And when somebody with a different approach,different tastes, different mindset, DOES come by, why is he touted as WEIRD?
Hmmmm. Do we then start showing our true colours when we get on more familiar terms with that someone new?Colours that may seem a bit TOO bright or dull?Why can't we just BE and not PRETEND?
