The Others

There are sections of people in society living for food, money, fame and power. All have their own life, priorities and family. We come across different kinds of people in our daily life. It depends on our acceptance what comes our way i.e. kind of people we accept, which actually affects our lifestyle in a way.

The world is too big to explore all the elements in it.

Different sections of people live in different areas of world which is further divided into countries, states, cities and villages. People residing in cities have a different lifestyles to live with and different work culture to deal with. People are fast enough to get hold of the technology available in the market. Food is available in bulk in varieties awaiting a mass wastage to the extent of throwing comestible food. We are used to such site seeing as we are one of them leading same lifestyle.

But there are other sections of people in society, the people in villages who actually are connected to us but we are separated from them. Its only when we meet people, we get to know them. People we face in our daily life is from our society. But when we start moving places and start meeting other people who are not actually leading our lifestyle we come to know about their dilemmas which is very different than us. Even if the rural areas are developing, there are still sections of people who live hand to mouth on daily basis. People who grow rice in their fields know the real value of it. Rice is gold for them for they know the sweat utilized in it. They have their own wet eye story to tell.

We live a very different lifestyle no where close to the others. The others too lead completely a different life than we do. They are unaware of our very different problem and vice versa.

They are others for us or are we, for them...

The Others.

Its true there are different kinds of people everywhere. Kabhi kabhi hamare kapde par ek chota daag bhi kaafi hai kapde fhekne ke liye. But do we ever think of those people who hae only a single pair of trousers to cover their body. No we hardly think sometimes. But nways ur post did raise this issue. So keep writing man.
