Genuine@All

Genuine…… What is this word all about…..? Original, authentic, true, honest…..?????

Today in this world it’s very difficult to figure out what is genuine and what is not……

Things are so perfectly imitated that…..it’s almost impossible to find out the difference between what’s original and what is fake…. One can find an exact replica of a branded stuff right on the road side…. infact right outside the store itself…. It’s just mind blowing…. U can see one wearing a Versace for Rs.100 for which you had spent a bomb to buy it from the store…. Isn’t it frustrating???

Politicians…… I think almost all the Indian politicians are not genuine….. But how can I say that…..may be they are genuine….. but I am sure….their track record will prove that there are totally unreal….. Some who come in the scene with a honest heart….. most of the times…..are forced to become fake…… they have to surrender under the pressure….. to cope up with the dirty scenario that prevails…. And I think its not only Indian politics but all the other nations must be facing it…. Genuinely they want to come to power to make a difference or they are here to continue the corruption????

Today in the world of consumerism…. Companies try all possible strategies, tricks, and tactics to lure the customers….. Do they genuinely want to satisfy the consumer needs? …Do they really want to make our lives better or it’s just to sell their products and make money….. Using all the marketing fundas to tempt the consumers….. But I hope all the companies….follow basic ethics….. (And yes no business can work with profit without manipulations)….. If the companies are some percent genuine…. in their attitude….. . I think it’s satisfactory…..

Now it’s the turn of Indian Cricket team….hahahahah…. are they genuine…..do they play for the country…. Or they are playing for themselves…. I think most of them play with a genuine heart…. With few exceptions… and if people say that they play for money… I think there is nothing wrong…. Obviously they have to earn their livelihood out of the sport… But I just wish that they don’t play at the cost of country…

What about relationships??? Relationships are the most confusing…. And most difficult to understand….. It’s really hard for me at least to figure out which is a genuine relationship…… What makes relationship real or reel…. Is it the circumstances… is it forced on you….?? Is it for someone’s happiness you turn fake….to make the other person happy….. Will you call it good or bad…. Don’t know exactly…. But I think one should try to be genuine almost all the time….in the sense….just not do things for ones happiness… till yes the situation is really critical….. Where you have no choice…. Because if you act fake now…. But later on if the person comes to know that you were not genuine….it may just hurt the person.. …really badly….. but ya again depends on the circumstances….if it’s a serious matter like love or friendship and other such important relationships.. please don’t be fake……(haahhahaaha….)

(P.S.: This genuine funda may apply to many more things….but this what I could think as of now….)

i dunno about brands and other inanimate things, but when it comes to real people...i feel it defeats the purpose of emotions to fake them for one's shallow purposes...but for one's 'happiness' is a relative thing...as the term is often misunderstood or not understood at all...
oops sounding a bit complex..so yeah, basically I just disregard any person who I feel is not genuine....

well i agree about brands, companies, politicians ... and everything!!! but relationships naah ... one knows a relationship is genuine not by proof ..but by the rapport u share, and how can i notbe genuine ..if someone means to me ... its difficult 2 explain 2 u ...and we dont turn fake in relationships.. its just the way an individual deals with it!!!And we do have choices, its just that we don't wanna look at those choices, coz that doesn't make us happy!!!okkk.. i think this is gettin too much!!! good riting anyways :)
