New Age of Hypocrisy

By - Sonam Desai

Times have changed for sure. People now have lost touch with their soul, mind and honesty. New times have not made us tougher but brutal as well, brutal to each other and ourselves. Smiles are fake, all hearts broken, words untrue and feelings don’t exist. We all have turned our skins upside down, where once existed love now exists insecurities, where once existed trust now exists wariness.

Brutalities and responsibilities to turn around the after-effects of our past generations burdened us with so much of work, that we are busy planning a life rather than living it. Instead of being happy and trying to be happy we just pretend and think its working, smiling without a cause is a sign of wacky minds, compliments turned suspicious, feelings are merely words to our favourite songs and the whole world being turned from neon and bright to black and white.

What happened, you ask? Well the new age of hypocrisy has overruled the crucial significance of actuality, us dreaming is taught to be insignificant and stupid, artists turned to businessmen, art is now sold, and a person is valued in his/her monetary possessions, when did we turn into robots functioning on hypocrisy as a fuel? Asking too much makes us annoying, asking too less makes us inattentive, we all started over-thinking every action of ours, we started planning more and doing way too less. Why is it that a generation so smart to understand the difference between living and being alive turned into a bunch of obnoxious kids who just pretend to know everything and feel nothing? We turned into a generation of people scared of truth, feelings, meaning and life. Instead, we started pretending to be capable of handling everything on our own when we need help.

We are now scared of everything pretending to be the most powerful we are the weakest of all.
