That…One emotion!

A uniquely amazing imagination came into my way while I was calmly seated in a movie hall. 

We ‘Indians’ have a tremendous unity when it comes to watching a sporty film together. People titillate on jocular scenes, they start applauding and whistling. I never felt that it was annoying rather it always creates a sense of remarkable amiability and mutuality. We all feel united. We keep all the other thoughts aside and imbibe the sentiment of being ‘an Indian’. We laugh candidly, and we clap together. A sudden smile breaks across our faces at the same time. I really have experienced it!  

But there is one emotion that is never granted an opportunity to be expressed openly,  which is always meant to be suppressed. When the heart warming and emotive aspect of the film unfolds, this emotion propagates all over. The time when all the jubilant eyes turn weepy with the tears flooding gradually. The atmosphere turns quiet.                               The films ends soul-stirringly.  As the screen blows off and the lights switch on, I observe that people hurriedly wipe off their tears and try to hide them. Some of them attempted to get rid of them gracefully while some wiped them off concealingly!

And that’s when I imagine that how incredibly wonderful it would have been if this emotion hadn’t been exploited.  I imagine of people getting up, weeping gently, looking at each other and exchanging pleasant smiles while mild tears still flow off their faces . This imagination was so so beautiful!            How weirdly marvellous this entire thought was! 

This imagination made me think that in the ‘theatre of life’ we are no less than the actors we watched, absolutely pretentious!

  1. The world is a stage and we merely are playing our roles . Most of the time we make an immense effort to mask our real self in fear that we may fail in measuring adequate in others judgment.

    1. Exactly.. We are most of the time feared of portraying our weaknesses but we forget that this is what we have in common in all.. So instead of concealing it we must try to embrace them😇😊

  2. I hate this, not your post i mean this weird feeling and the need to conceal your tears and your sorrows. Even I have trained myself to not to cry in front of others but then it is indeed true that this feeling has been totally exploited, but then if you do show your feelings then the question of getting hurt comes on. So I guess it a matter of adaption to these feelings.

    1. We laugh together, we smile together but how unbiased we are regarding this emotion which always has to face criticism. It is the purest emotion but this is how badly it is perceived by us.

      Hope you agree!!😊

  3. Many times,People want to wear a mask of strong side of themselves.They sense seing their tears will give the people right to judge them.
    Although,I strongly believe,we should laugh,cry everything with the real sense.
