Instantaneous

The times we live in, are impatient times.We are impatient about each & everything.We want instant results to problems which have been there for a long time.

This is the age of the net.We want to talk to others instantaneously .We have the mobile & other internet tools like skype,google talk,yahoo messenger,etc.One click & connections get made for chatting ,talking,sharing photos,ideas etal.

There are instant food mixes available to satiate our hunger pangs .They are very convenient & reasonably priced.About nutritional values,there is little doubt, that they are mostly absent.

We want to earn money fast.So we are willing to go to any extent.We are willing to pull others down ,project ourselves,adopt all illegal means,etc.There are no full stops in our craze to get rich & successful.We prefer shortcuts to success rather than the long winding roads to joy.And once we get there,we feel all the more insecure.So another rat race begins & the vicious cycle continues.

We prefer live shows that are being telecast now.Our kids also expect their demands to be fulfilled at that moment.Because ,children ape us.When they see us on our mobiles ,laptops,tablets,kindles etc,they imitate us.

Why this craze for everything instantaneous ?Is it because, we are very insecure, about what will happen tomorrow ? We are all stressed out by instant updates about our lives & those of others.Unfortunately ,all this fast life has robbed us of perseverance,patience,persistence,etc..We are unable to concentrate on any task at hand.So ,the results are just about there.They lack the  brilliance & passion of times gone by.

Let us learn to be patient & persistent with the tasks on hand....kids,family ,work ..in fact everything.The outcomes will be much better & simply excellent.Let us try to believe, in the present rather than worry about the future.Towards,this end ,let us spend some time, in quiet contemplation.Let us remember  that even if we win all the rat races,we will  still remain rats.

sulekkha said...

Well said. We all want things instantly, if a site takes more than a few seconds to load we leave it and go to the next one. Kids are becoming impatient too, life is a fast mad dash, a blur...no time to stop and smell the roses.

Vasudha Rao said...

Thank you,Nabanita !

Vasudha Rao said...

Yes,Sulekkha .You said rightly ,we have no time to stop & smell the roses.
