At the end of winning a rat race, we are still a rat.

reality check

Ramesh is all sweet and caring when he talks to his wife, but it is only on the surface. If he looks inside , there is deep resentment and hatred for her nagging ways.
What really manifests in their shared is only his resentment and hatred. So it is with all our life...our inner dialogues at various moments are in stark contrast to what we project outside with various people.
In our various intearctions outside, we are in PERFORMANCE mode.We are not ourselves.We wear masks and become the people we would like to project ourselves as in the perception of our audiences.We show different sides to different people.
Can you see this burden we carry day in and day out?
It is in the gap between what we are and what we project ourselves to be that misery arises.
And our worlds become dull, lethargic expressions.
