On my visit to Udham Singh Nagar school, I met Mounika of Class 12. She has studied in Azim Premji School and attended Alumni meet in her school.
"It's been two years since you passed out of school, what's a major difference in your thoughts? I asked.
"During schooling, I assumed that friends are going to be there forever and we can meet often but, as time passed, I discovered that we can't meet them often. It gets difficult to meet them and stay connected."
During my childhood, I wanted all my friends to be at a place where I could meet them in an hour. Everyone turned out to be busy in their lives including me. It's difficult to catch up often, I learnt it late compared to Mounika.
“What kind of music do you listen to?” I asked her while walking along on a road. I’m on my feet and she got her cycle along with her, walking on the road.
“I listen to happy music.” She mentioned, “There’s no point of listening to sad music when you’re already sad.” I try avoiding sad music when I’m sad. She mentioned.
True, rather than delving too much into sadness, one can get along with sadness by coping with it and trying to come out of it rather than ignoring it.
