Individuals

There is a very famous quote, "Time Heals" but time also changes. As time goes on you might not realize but every second that goes by has an effect on us and changes us, our perspective, our thoughts, our personality. For me these last two year have changed me tremendously. Two years ago when I walked through the gates of BITS Pilani Goa Campus I was a very different person. A nervous, shy, humble and idealistic girl had walked in, who hadn't seen the world. And today when I look back, these last two years have changed me a lot. But for the most part I'm still the same. Just like on exposure to moisture iron rusts and loses it shine but beneath all that rust some iron is still present. Pardon me for my references (engineer). Taking that same analogy the world is a cruel mistress


I'd say our best achievement would be to stay the same in this world that is constantly trying to change us. Well not staying the same, but never letting go of things that define a you in a crowd. Build up on them, expand your scope, broaden your minds and be open to new things. But don't ever lose your individuality. Make sure that tiny part inside you is still alive. Don't let the crowd define you, stand up for what you think is right and what you believe in, even if it means standing alone. Our ideas and beliefs are a part of who we are and stand by them. If we all lose our uniqueness then the world would be so monotonous. The ideas of Romanticism (around 1800s) had some substance in them to have survived that long. Probably there will be circumstances that will be tough, people who will disappoint you and it will be just easier to give in, but that I feel is the real challenge. And well if only one remembers to turn the light on! Something to think about.
