Superficiality@Everything

Universally, the one thing that prevails …..Is Superficiality! ! !

What ever you see…..where ever go…..what ever one does…..everything seems to be Superficial…..

Who has made this word omnipresent…..who else….we ourselves……..

Today life starts with it…..the newspaper you read in the morning is all about glitz, money, politics, Page 3...what are these???…..form of superficial expressions….

The news channels, the TV shows, sports….. All revolves around this….superficiality is what sells today…and we the people are buying it rapidly……

Sports…which is considered to be the place where everything is real and no makeup…..is also a victim of this…..sportsmen….they play for their countries….but….media, respective sport boards have made it all a part of showbiz ( sportsmen are also influenced) and showbiz again is all about superficiality…..

People are becoming brand conscious, want to buy and wear branded stuff…..what are brands…..again superficial…..adding on extra cost….just for the name sake…. In most of the cases…..( I am also one who runs after brands…what hypocrisy ! ! !… hahaha)

Even when you go to a shop to buy something….the salesman also acts in an artificial manner just to sell stuff….trying to convince his customer that the product is good… (But here the superficiality is a part of trade….baniya hu na…..chale ga…)

Now it’s about relationships….most important than all the above…..today even relations have gone for a toss…. Most of the people are using each other…. (It was there earlier also…but now it’s growing like our GDP, I am sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings)…. The term that is most appropriate here is Synthetic Engima….meaning putting on things just to impress, accepted by the environment…society …etc…again…..superficiality ….. rite ???

No one is spared I suppose, including me…all of us are the victims of this dreaded word…. And as this thing has become so prominent that…even though people who are honest and straight forward…..we are still suspicious…. And even we could be looked at with doubt……..
