In response to daily post’s prompt : False
We are living in a world where there is a struggle between real and false. More and more we see false is replacing everything real. Take for example the metal gold, while it’s price is soaring in the stock market, ordinary people who at one time could afford to buy a gold necklace are now satisfied with an imitation, it’s done so well that you’d never be able to pinpoint which is real and which is false.
Whenever I hear the word faut fur i.e, fake fur, it disturbs me. I’m satisfied knowing when I’m unable to afford real, I won’t go for fake. To me it’s better to buy something which tells me it is real, cotton, linen, or silk. I do understand fur is not something people want to buy because of the number of animals killed to produce fur coats. I’m pleased we’d save the animals from extinction. What troubles me is why on earth should we buy coats or parkas made of fake fur. I am curious to know what kind of material they use to produce coats that look like fur but in reality they aren’t.
The food industry scared us by saying butter was bad for us and they produced the imitation of butter called margarine, now word is around that margarine is bad for health. We the consumers are always deceived by the producers who make it their business to make us unhealthy, and we are naive enough to believe them.
This is why the word false irritates me.
Three things I believe : number one is, I am a guest of this planet , while I’m here I must do everything to help mankind. How much have I done is hard to know, this much is true everyday I’m alive I must do something good even if I talk nice to my neighbor,say thank you to the mailman who delivers my mail walking miles and miles of rough weather,slippery streets, strong winds and heavy down pour. I want him /her, to know I appreciate his daily hard work.
Number two on my list is the cashier at the Supermarket. I watched the girl scanning the items and I had quite a few, I told her I know she must be tired, in reply she said,”my back is killing me.” I felt bad and wished her a nice day. I believe it is true when I say a nice word the person on the other side feels good to know someone out there sympathizes with her.
There are a lot more things that are true, since I have one more, the last one on my list is; I agree with the American who said, “You are here only for a short while, so stop and smell the roses.”
Things that I believe are false is number one: when the politician tells us he’d scratch GST.
The second thing that I believe is false is when the tailor assures me my clothes would be stitched in five days. He knows he won’t and I hope it will be done. Guess what ,he lied.
The last one is when my brother tells me he’d write a long email. I know he won’t keep his promise!!
