Whether You Win Or Lose , You Are a Rat In The Rat Race All The Same

I wont waste writing space giving an introduction to this topic, it is all evident. We (esp Indians) have been running around since the day we were born.The word 'competition' is becoming more and more cliched by the day. We ran to take admission to Montessori, we ran to take admission to kindergarten in the perceived best school in the city (even though we now realize it would make any difference whether you attend lower primary school or not), we ran again for admission to Std 1 in the perceived best school and kept running since then: Ran for the school bus , ran back home from the bus stop to pick up a lab coat or a record , ran around copying homework , ran in and out of class in the breaks more for the pending work than for the food , ran around with notes to mug for the test in the next hour, ran after school to keep our presence felt on the sports fields or extracurricular classes , ran from one fest to another to garner CV points and ran and ran and ran , and ran again to and from IIT coaching classes and filling admission forms to competitive exams for undergraduate courses. I ll personally take a break here.. I didnt exactly 'run' in my engineering college for a change , 4yrs of holiday :) , but then the race began all over again , MBA entrance exams , and the season of filling forms began and we ran to and from coaching centres and now at a B-school I am still running the Rat race.
Thought I had fallen many a times , but got up dusted myself and ran again to win or to lose at every step; I was in the race all the same. No time to stand and stare , No time to cry , No time to analyse where life s taking me , No time to stop and redo or remake , No time to make a new path , still treading the rough old path , still doing the tasks situations demand and priding myself at achieving the results of the preset tasks...

Where am I heading???? Is not the question I have time to answer , the best I can do is to make the best use of the trap I am already in....
