Tomorrow is Another Day

Tomorrow

In this fast-paced life, the time when ‘each one to his own’ has become life’s mantra; when empty-nest syndrome is accepted as a bitter-sweet pill; when aloneness and loneliness become synonymous; when the size of your friend-list, and like-signs on your timeline become your life-line; when a green dot in front of your dear ones gives you consolation and confidence that they are there for you.

Should I…?

Once, being a part of an Inter-College Extempore Elocution Competition as a judge, I came across a topic ‘I would rather like to forget…’
