We live in a world of aspirations, where our actions are never the result of arbitrariness but the byproduct of the draconian laws of aspiration set by society.

Prima facie, we all think of needs and wants as a necessity, but the seriatim bars set up by society have made a curium. Everybody wants to be at the citadel, but nobody wants to climb the summit, learning from the deadly pester.

Despite this, we may have a boo hiss or a tirade, but we are evolving without navigation to reach our desired goals. Speaking to people and observing how people around me mutate against the odds, I have found that the exuberance held by the majority of youth is getting wasted. They are replete with the nitty-gritty but lack the motivation. Somewhere along the line, I find the way we are being cancer, responsible for the killing of our attention span. We often pooh-pooh the digitalized social life and the addictions associated with it, but it’s inevitable to deny that we are moving forward with those cancer-infected tissues.

Moreover, we often develop an intransigence as an inflated ego, resulting in the condensation for not accepting the fault, which is bequeathed from the hierarchy. The recent global headlines and reports for the population seem to be a hope for a new age of India’s glory, with statistics stating that over 1 billion people in India are now from the age group of 15 to 60 years old, the working age. These figures have always been given by optimistic people predicting the surge in the per-capita economy, stating the creation of economic opportunities to reap India’s demographic dividend. However, what acts as aggravation is that we have failed to adequately grade the demographic cohort that is struggling to accept and implement new ways of thinking.

Despite the fact that we are becoming more adamant by the day, we frequently excuse ourselves by losing motivation as a roadblock in the way of triumph over destiny. This leads to a blindfold against the root cause that plays a major role in tilting the scale against us. We lack rudimentary planning, and we frequently have an idea of what is to be accomplished but we misbegotten the measure to be taken.

As an added bonus, we are living in a false world in which we are spending a disproportionate amount of time and effort on self-motivation rather than strategic planning. If we aren’t careful about the road to be taken, the recurring refrain of “Miles to Go Before I Sleep” might be a hassle.

Vis-à-vis Zeitwende, the phrase ‘I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference’ rings hollow when seen through the lens of Zeitgeist, where fate is not predetermined.

The perceived vacuum in the absence of action reminds me of the dilemma of a dog running behind the car. Running miles to catch the car, but what does the dog do if he catches the car? He doesn’t have a plan for it, and somewhere along the line, we have all developed into that dog.
