The Tourist

During a casual walk down a famous street in arguably one of the most coveted city of India I overheard couple of tourists praising a particular aspect of that city. And it was the same aspect which made the native disown the city many a times, complain about it insatiably and at times simply ignore it under the garb of a helpless acceptance.

Walking ahead of the two tourists I wondered how the same thing appealed to some who probably saw and lived it for a day while it disgusted the ones who witnessed and faced it every day. Subsequently it dawned on me that sometimes it’s better to take a breather and ‘become’ a tourist to our own problems, relationships, dilemmas and our own being. It surely helps us grow some more (and much needed) green grass on our emotional pasture.

PS: How to ‘become’ that tourist? That, I am afraid, can’t be generalised.

Great Thinking...!! But yes, the problem is how to become that Tourist?

Debajit Saha said...

Actually, our mind and heart is full of so many confusions and invisibility, and thus sometimes we just can't ignore them. And at this situation the transformation from a every day viewer to a Tourist is very difficult. Yes we can try. As to get a life soothing solution we should always try.
