Something the voice said.
Its only later that I berate myself for being so arrogant. Judgmental. That a box with a sandwich, a pack of wafers and cookies can mean a great deal to someone. So much so that they crowd, fishmarket style; and scream, niceties and five-star ambiance be damned. So often one transposes one’s value system, but the frames of reference are so darned different there is just no connect. Lazy thinking on my part.

everyone has a different view of judging and we've all been in our glass houses when we may have thrown stones..

crusty- I felt miserable later. Still do.

burf- Not funny. Sometimes you watch yourself from a distance and it isn't very nice.

Hi,Austy,u and arrogant?No way-just your imagination...a bit irritated,I can imagine...Mumbai does that to the sanest of us all!:)

burf said...

and does it depend on the angle at which you look at anything?

austere said...

burf- possibly, but my stand was from a level (or angle) where I saw myself removed- higher.

amit- apna gaon only. :) shareholders at the agm. arrogant, yep.

manuji- not a good thing at all. when the median non service income is 22% of the city based, job based one, why should one be so presumptious?

But you think and reflect.
Others don't.
