Where do we go from here?

Posted in Life on September 22, 2009 by Saquib
I tell you what this city needs – to get real. Have you tried looking into the eyes of people, and see the incredible amount of dissatisfaction and trauma?  I only live to see so many of us not living anymore. But what exactly happened to us?
Yesterday my cousin told me something that actually did made sense. (Now it’s hard not to talk about it, as you barely feel like that these days.) The thing with most of our generation is, we were lied to. Remember all that we were told, all the dreams that we believed in, the thing about growing up real and being the person we are supposed to be? How all of it is supposed to just work out and the perfect map to success? And then we grew up and saw those paths don’t exist, fairness is just a term, and no matter how hard you’ve worked, you’re lucky enough to even just exist when you’re trying to do it on your own. Did all of us just have the wrong dream? Or are we just way outnumbered by the losers every day?
I look around us, and can’t picture where this nation stands fifty years from now. The vision to believe in next five hundred years is even more difficult. I know we’ll build more bridges and construct even cooler skyscrapers, I know we’ll have talk-time that’s cheaper than water; but I can’t seem to find that sense of righteousness, I can’t seem to find a nation that would earn respect by their incredible values and distinctive passion to excel for a human cause. I can’t seem to see a time when the economy here will not be driven by a bunch of morons, or a time when the most incredible part of this nation, the youth, would have the chance to grow some real love for their country.
Save it for some other place, you gotta fake it to be someone here. That’s what I see when I look inside people. Try spending some time in the VIP lounge of Zia Airport, and just see where the people (who could’ve changed this nation) have shifted to. Then spend a night at Khulna town to find out how we have no clue about who else are in the bus. I’ve only got a handful of people who really are unique as they should be, and have an amazing way of thinking. But I live only to see them go away. Most people here has an idea of being something they are not, and it’s so naturally trendy here, you don’t even notice what’s wrong with you. And this is one of those first steps of literally losing a whole generation of incredible people.
I just find more and more people so shallow inside, you talk to them for a while and then you know there’s nothing more to them than the very typical un-sophisticated personality, often widely misguided ambitions, and an alarming amount of confusion with who they really are.
Does anyone care about making a difference anymore?

Remember all that we were told, all the dreams that we believed in, the thing about growing up real and being the person we are supposed to be?

“I can’t believe that we would
Lie in our graves
Wondering if we had
Spent our living days well
I can’t believe that we would
Lie in our graves
Dreaming of things that we
Might have been “
