Today was a good day.. It was a good time since it meant attending a event by this amazing author Patrice Khan. The event was a work thing, which I had helped organize in my capacity as a Museum Curator/other stuff for the Oxford University Press. Basically a workshop for kids, it was something that even I could relate to, and believe me it helped.
The event was amazing, the exercises that she did with us was amazing, she herself is amazing. What wasn’t amazing is the number of people that came. There were a total of 3 kids, one NGO worker, and 4 people other people. That is a low turn out.
It is these sort of things that seem to sadden me when I come to think of how the reading habits in this country are almost dying out. But then it is because of this, that it becomes more important that we should be having these events. *Sigh* Oh well, maybe next time things will be much better!
A little more than a year into this job, and I am finally starting to understand how do corporates work. It is not such a big secret and I am sure most of you already know it and have dealt with it in some way or the other! The simply lure you into a “SENSE OF SECURITY”.
This security comes to us in the form of Insurance, Medical and Health Coverage, Timely pay, other conveniences like travel and good food (you would think that food would have little value but you can be so wrong). Anyways, all these conveniences start to make your moral beliefs and your values and everything a bit weak everyday.. you start to think that you cant get something better out there, and you slowly start to take all sorts of shit… you become more patient with all the bullshit that seems to be surrounding you, tolerating it more and more everyday!
I am starting to feel the trap surrounding me slowly and me giving into it… but I will be damned, if I say a wrong is right!
