The youth and time obsession

Okay, so I haven’t been writing much (any, actually) since I don’t have much to write about. So I guess I’ll be writing some short post on some of my fleeting thoughts. Congrats to the readers who don’t prefer long posts.

I just saw an advertisement on TV (wow, a TV to myself!), and no, it wasn’t a fairness or some ‘halt your ageing process’ ad, but an ‘anti – ageing’ ad for exterior walls. Wait, whaaaa???

Why are we obsessed with looking young all the time? Why can’t we accept that we are getting older and hopefully, wiser with time?

They say ‘old is gold’ for a reason, don’t they? I think adulthood and maturity is associated with wisdom, experience and stuff like that which takes time (which is more valuable than money, but that’s another train of thought. Read on to get to it.)

Take Meryl Streep or even Madhuri Dixit or Sridevi for that case. They all aged gracefully and still look beautiful with all those wrinkles and the other ‘6 signs of ageing’.

Time ain’t money anymore, it is actually way more valuable than money, and people finally seem to understand that. I’m not saying that it’s a good thing or a bad thing, that’s just the way it is. My grandfather used to walk down kilometers to save his 10 bucks which used to take him about an hour. But we, we’d rather pay a 100 to get from point A to point B even if the weather is awesome for walking  simply because we don’t have the time. Nobody does. It’s an ‘Oh, yes, abhi’ empire we’re living in.

Okay, I just ran out of thing to say. Anyways, like they say, That’s all folks!
