Masks!!

>> Monday, April 20, 2009

She sits with you in a group, flashes her brightest smiles, and cracks the most nonsensical jokes. You smile back, laugh at her jokes … tears roll down her eyes, you believe they were tears of joy..
Have you ever wondered if the bright smile someone flashes at you, hides a pain beyond imagination?

God really used his imagination when he created humans. Each one is so distinct with the way they express themselves. Some of them talk about it to all and sundry and get over with it. Some just sulk over it, leaving other's guessing what went wrong . Some of them store it in the far abyss of their heart and minds and just wear masks. Only that the masks tend to become so heavy that they eventually break the individual’s persona….



Clowns wear a face that's painted intentionally on them so they appear to be happy or sad. What kind of mask are you wearing today?”

I'm wearing the Deepti mask; just like Gujjus wear Modi mask during elections. But after a small kid shouted out "Look mommy, a chimp!", I decided to discard it lest I would end up in the city zoo.

WOW great post!

**Some of them store it in the far abyss of their heart and minds and just wear masks. Only that the masks tend to become so heavy that they eventually break the individual’s persona

I agree! I hate that kind. And sooner or later their real faces will show...cos the mask cant hold for too long!


I dun APPEAR happy/sad. When Im happy Im happy...when Im sad Im sad. I dun HIDE anything...and I tell it like it is. Thats why I dun hv many friends :)

We all wear masks and even choose different ones when dealing with different people.
