April Blogging Challenge - 24


X is for xronia polla na zissis

This is a Greek Wish which means long live which is given by elders on festivals to all youngsters something similar to our jeete raho!


If there is something that I could say this to, it would be love and humanity. I see a steady decline in the morals and value systems of people all around and it is really very disheartening to see that. When I was in school I love you meant I will marry you and we are together forever. Today I love you means I love you it need not mean anything further unless specified. Time has witnessed some convenience based arrangements being made in relationships. Lust gets camouflaged under love and relationships break at the click of a button.

Rather than being happy for the sake of being happy people pose happily for pictures to show to others on social networking sites though their lives might be an emotional mess. The tolerance level of people has come down drastically where waiting, understanding, being patient are things of the past. In today’s times of instant noodles and instant food packets they want everything instant and incase it is not so, the results are shocking. Teenagers become murderers when denied more pocket money and people commit adultery when denied space. 

I wonder if we actually know what we want from life? Is it money or is it love? Is it fame or is it loved ones? More often than not we end up paying a huge price for dreams to come true and when we look around we don’t find anyone around us to celebrate the success. I want each one to care for the other, love them and be respectful atleast for the sake of humanity if nothing else. It would surely make the world a better place to live.

Hence I would just say - xronia polla na zissis Love!! We need you <3

  15. "I wonder if we actually know what we want from life? Is it money or is it love? Is it fame or is it loved ones?"

    As far as I have noticed, our priorities differ,for some money means more,for others fame, some want love etc. etc. I'd say, let people be and choose their priorities :) Having said that,that's a lovely wish for X! :) Lovely post.
