When was the last time you danced to beats of the rain drops falling and sang along the chirping of the birds? When was the last time you studied in the morning to play with your friends in the afternoon and stole mangoes or rejoiced when jackfruit wafted the entire courtyard of your place? When was the last time you attended your family functions merrily and not made a face when your parents asked you out? When was the last time you didn’t actually worry about your likes and comments and instead looked forward for genuine compliments from people around you? When was the last time you didn’t make excuses to meet new people and exulted on making a new friend instead of getting a new follower on social media? When was the last time you didn’t compare yourself with people, got jealous and depressed seeing the lifestyle they choose to show over the internet and didn’t speculate and compare with the memes before doing something?
