Christmas hasn’t added much to my life, except there was someone who was around about a decade back and happened to get me Christmas Cakes. To me, it didn’t mean much then. But, over the years there have been quite a few who have come to actuate the christmas spirit. For me. This is incredible, because with time things rather get narrower and specific- for most of us. We had so many friends back in school and college, and look at us now Basically, with time, we become more specific rather than adding…cherries to our cake, so to speak.
For me, it has gone differently because maybe, I was not looking to settle. Or, get stable. Even the other day, I joined some distant friends in a protest against government policies and got detained for few hours. A week prior to that, I took my date to another protest The point is, by some stroke of chance, I have been able to find high points in life more often than the others. I know of someone who has more stamps on her passport than the number of years I have blessed mother Earth, has a beautiful Instagram feed, yet cries on her birthdays because she is lonely. The point is, people try so much to appear happy, that they forget what actually makes them happy.
I, my mother says, am too lazy to try much to please others.
So yes, as the years go by, there isn’t an iota of regret for the lack of usual high points- the ones that you update your facebook for That, I believe, is what Christmas spirit is about.
