These days we have ONEs all over us. First it was the RA-one mania and even before the dust settled on RA-one and G-one, F-one was here! And just like its fast cars, it was done in three days, creating so much GA-GA.
I’m sure we all remember some years back there was this other fixation with ONE in Bollywood, like Coolie No.1, Khiladi No.1, Hero No.1 even a Biwi No.1 and so on.
But like our reel heroes, in real life too we all want to be “the ONE”, be it the smarter one, the rich one, the successful one, special one, loved one, the BEST ONE. Nobody wants to be NO-ONE, everyone wants to be SOME-ONE, some-one else.
Since childhood, we have always been told we have to be the first one in everything. It started with crawling, knowing very well there were a billion kids who started crawling before us.
Be the first one to say Mama/Papa, so what if there were again millions kids doing the same thing all over.
Then we had to be the first in class, then in school later in the club, followed by city and then the first in the country.
Why do we have to be first in everything, rather anything for that matter? Why can’t we just be satisfied being good, being happy in our space?
We all know we can’t be the first and the best in everything in life, but in the aspiration to be the “One” we are not able to be the “Happy One” today.
Love life, and always remember you ARE special!
