All the World's a stage

The famous shakespeare monologue.. 'All the world's a stage..'I hardly understood the inner meaning when i learnt those lines during my schooldays.I never thought those words had experience dwelled with values and philosophies which are so true to the core.Something that's been pricking my heart for a long time.The world's just a stage where we are mere actors!! Its hard to digest this thought, but why do we have to be a dummy throughout our life.Even dog's,cats,animals out in the jungle,birds,trees everything seems to live the life of their own.But why should we "the so-called civilised" humans have to put up with this world which does'nt forgive anyone.I used to wonder it would have been better if we were'nt born civilized.

Many might be wondering the cause which leads to the tone i have used in this blog.I can't name ONE cause which makes me feel this way.It is something which is a aggregation of so many things which i have not only experienced but also having seen others experience that made me pen down these feelings.

Right from childhood where we have to get used to customs which are very tough to be be followed practically.The kids forced to study,slog,work hard for the whole school life to ensure that they do the their final exams exceptionally well just to get an admit to another school(the college)!!! The cycle follows..The routine liked by hardly few thereby forces everyone into the same situation.Now comes the question.Where does the protagonist's part come into picture? He/She doesn't.The childhood defines them as incompetent and incapable of making decisions that they are forced to like/act as if they like whatever they do.Being this way instead of making their own life,they are given a preplanned life.In rare cases,the child gets exceptionally gifted parents who afford and help them making them their life rather than giving them what they wanted to become.In any case I am not blaming any parent for this mishap but its the way most of the normal homo sapiens are.

Then comes the most beautiful part of life (for atleast 99% of the people appox.) .The period of transition from an immature teenager to a sophisticated Professional.The life that gives us the freedom of what we want to be.Love and hate happens frequently and yet in a transparent way.We never hide our feelings which helps us to create great friends(even life partners for some).We shape our career & love life.For some it would be a smooth curve and for others its a torus knot unwounded gradually.When this stage comes to an end, we are back to the actual world(Scary!!)This phase of life makes most of us understand the pragmatism of life.When we realise that, we are referred as matured.

You may as well say-"Gimme a Break!!..Whats the big deal about being matured?".Maturity according to me is the origin of injecting the acting skills inside everyone in a gradual way.It teaches you to accept the world as it is which is actually the most difficult part.We are taught to act responsible which restrains the freedom to do anything at anytime.Basically maturity leads us to take up responsibilities which bases upon formalities(the word i hate the most!!).The word which has been an integral part in lives of many and would always be."What can you do about that!??" - Absolutely nothing..Blame it on life(Or God-whichever suits you).To site some practical difficulties on being practical,we have loads of formal friends around us.Damn!..Who the hell found such a thing..What's the point in knowing someone whom you are not interested to know well? Why are some hypocritical when thy are friends with others??Does life fail to give enough time to explore different people!??..The other irony of life is the wise minds who have realised their mistake are unable to be informal with these actors who are be formal!!Fake relationships hardly last longer.When we realise that, we will be happy for being what we actually like to be. Its like one guy can't change the corrupt nation if he enters politics.People should mutually think of an alternative.I am not goin to provide a solution for this as nothing exists as of now..After all this I am gonna conclude "At the end of the day,Grapes are sour and I am hungry!!"
