Where is it going?

The big question, isn't it? Whenever I've asked myself this question, I have kinda known the answer to it. But, if you don't have an answer to it, man, are you going to put up with a lot of crap.

In the west, this question can generally mean only one thing - a commitment/breakup with your boyfriend/girlfriend is in the offing. But, Indians are the kings of customization. We need a mix and match for everything. (Instances below)

The too-much phobia
  • Son is playing too much cricket. He has to write his board exams in four years.
  • Too much work/Too much fun/Too much relaxation/Too much tension/Too much travel.
  • Talking too much in the phone.
The attention-seeker syndrome (I have it)
  • Why no attention at all?
  • Can't people just leave me alone for a minute?
  • I feel like we are drifting apart. (Now, this is very common Ok. Not pin-pointing.)
The gutless phenomenon
  • I don't want the others* to think that something is going on.
  • What if it goes somewhere I don't know where. (read again to understand)
  • What if I can't answer with where I want it to go. (again, read again to understand)
From all that I have understood, it is a question
  • that you should never ask yourself when you don't want to.
  • that you should never let someone irrelevant, answer (and bother).
  • that you should never answer when someone irrelevant asks.
  • that you should always answer aloud (to the relevant).
  • that you should always ask yourself first (and try to answer) before a second opinion.
  • that can work wonders when found an answer to (both ways).
  • that also affects people (or surroundings) other than you.
  • that guys TRY TO AVOID and girls are OBSESSED with (generally).
  • that guys DON'T CARE when they don't have an answer.
  • that girls answer with ALOOF when they don't want to pick an answer.
  • that you SHOULD find an answer when there are too many options.
and the most important one...
  • that is IRRELEVANT when you don't have a choice.
*others - anyone/anything that is not a stakeholder of which is going where, except for gossiping about it.

You do have the uncanny( I don't know if it's enviable though) knack to categorize,correlate and analogize feelings that others find hard to put into words :D

And on that note, brilliantly written.

P.S: Glad to see that all that energy saved on tweeting is channeled here.
