I’ve realised this over the past two years that there’s really no more use of discussing how individualism is getting affected by external factors such as religion and societal pressure. If I go on discussing about this, there would probably be no end to it.
Let me put a few of my personal experiences out here, which, though were not so major, have played quite a significant role in my life. As an individual, I’ve always been inclined towards writing, particularly in Urdu, Hindi and English.
English being a universal language was accepted by my family. Hindi being my mother tongue, as they say, was something I was praised for. Even my writings in Urdu were appreciated, but they were also questioned as to why I was writing in this language and who had influenced me (probably thinking Urdu to not be as equally important). Well, the others did not pay much attention to this, but I got really bothered by it as to why I was questioned for a trivial cause.
We know and we keep on repeating the same problems, but do we bother to find a way out or take an action? It’s time to stop alarming everyone that the house’s on fire. Rather, it’s time to extinguish the fire.
