Feeling of NOSTALGIA  

Posted by iNDER

M again trying to create new ways of putting into words the feelings that come from living in a community rich with friends and memories. I don’t know how the hell I get the time to do that. But this time nostalgia came in,.. NOSTALGIA, the want, and need, an element of magic and tranquility in what we read about the past and the longing it invokes. My stories are tinged with a touch of ethereal, that stuff that hazes memories and enhances the past, to make them a little more beautiful and endearing.

"Nostalgia, where the bridge is gapped between the people who once touched our lives and the lives we once touched. And I'm grateful for the space I'm allowed to occupy with memories gathered from a lifetime in my community. So , come with me now, and explore those memorable days gone by, days that rekindle happy memories of the way it was, or perhaps the way we wanted it to be." [senioryears.com]

Now look at how we have changed, whether for better or for worse. We are older, have more experience, probably better off in terms of finances... but, there is probably one thing our life back then had that it doesn't have now, and that is carefree fun.

In recent days we have heard anxieties aired about the state of modern biz world. A sinister cocktail of junk food, marketing, over-competitive scenario and electronic entertainment is poisoning the most innocent of ages. Inappropriate Advertising is being closely monitored on networking sites which shows the obvious responses to the worriers' individual points and are given graded certificates of suggestions and guidance. They r bringing increased contact and communication, albeit in a format which can seem unfamiliar to older folks and foster solipsism(the philosophical theory that the self is all that you know to exist ). Modern marketing techniques are being manipulated increasing awareness and choice. The over-reaction is creating the opportunities for our young people.

Today's people have access to more diverse information than any before them being provided by so called “prevalent, reigning EYES”. We have also developed a healthy skepticism towards authority that, while annoying to some, bodes well for the future. The world is no longer as it was, which is prompting an appreciation of what has been gained as well as lost. We r encouraged to eat more healthily, but people r njoying their second home at other places. The frustrations, disappointments, anger and confusion, are kept to oneself and are doing everything humanly possible to maintain one’s dignity and independence, meanwhile neglecting own health and personal well-being, never taking time to relax, time we needed to recharge our batteries. Relaxation was a luxury we could not afford. We hved continuous stress and fatigue, and are facing a serious financial situation. Bet we just keep going.

Take a sober look at modern life by all means, but this moral panic is quite out of place.

"Nostalgia and good memories can be the only thing keeping you going during tough times. You can have nostalgic memories of times, places. Learning how to resurrect, enjoy -- and even make good memories can be a great hidden talent. Reach and get in touch with happier times and your inner child. Keep in mind that new good memories are always being created, and a few years from now you might be longing for right now." [wikihow.com]

I have all received my education and m independent and self-supporting; my parents expected nothing less, and i did my best n doing best to make them proud. My father wanted it that way and my mother encouraged and supported me in every sense of the word. Therefore I m able to take my place in the world, be independent, and it is a a source of accomplishment for my parents.

Now in this festival, where m supposed to be somewhere else, life seems to be out of control as I m going from day to day doing our endless tasks of living. If i could not accomplish something asked of, i feel that I am a failure. I always put my family first, now it seems like its time for the family to stop and think about me.

I have to adapt to a life here, a daunting task in itself. But they never waver, they are the captain in the storm and are running a tight ship.

It seems that the separation is the real cause that gives birth to any form of nostalgia. Sit back and relaxe , the time out here its going to be one hell of a nostalgia from now on after 2 years.

Amen...!!!
