Hi fellas! How are you doing? I have been away on a break for past two weeks, I didn’t plan to do so but just couldn’t make myself to write. I have been feeling a little confused and scattered lately but I am trying to get over it. I really hope you all are doing fine amid everything.
“Lola! Mom says you’ve lived in Hostel, is that true?”
“Yes, my dear. When I was young, very young, I went to college. There I had to live in a hostel for some years.”
“So, you lived with other students of you age, without parents! Just like Harry in Hogwarts?”
“Ha Ha! Yes, just like Harry Potter. But we had no magic.”
“Oh, did Pops also live with you, in the hostel?”
“Yes, I met your grandfather in college. You know he was the most intelligent one among us all!”
“Will I also get to go to college and live in a hostel?”
“No, Rio, hostels don’t exist anymore. You’ll receive majority of your education through Internet, just like you mother.”
“But it seems so much fun! Why do they don’t exist anymore?”
“Times have changed, sweetheart, it isn’t safe anymore to go around and mingle in social gatherings.”
“Hmm, is that why we have to wear these suits all the time?”
“Yes, we should wear them, always. They keep us safe.”
“Did you wear it when you were little? Did Pops died because he didn’t wear the suit? Do you miss him?”
“Enough, Rio, go to bed now. It’s late. We will continue this tomorrow.”
I wrote this short piece a few days back over coffee. Do you fear what our future holds? Does it gets to you when you dive in it a little beyond surface? Share your fears with me. What bugs you the most about the recent changes?
