Miss Love!

It’s been some time since I’ve written my last post and I’m truly sorry for the absence, Studies and life was meddling in between, and I needed a break. But during this break, I’ve seen so much more that I am ready to write more and in detail. Today, the daily prompt asks me, Of all the technologies that have gone extinct in your lifetime, which one do you miss the most? There are many, but there is one which is missed day and night by me; love.

I remember, when I was a child, whenever I went down to play, all the elders in my neighbourhood would come and talk to me and give me candies and it would leave me with a smile. I tried to greet my elders whenever I could, and that kept me happy for rest of the day. Love was something which I used to find everywhere around me. I wonder, what happened to all the love the world had for me.

Now, when I greet elders, I get a smile with hundreds of curses behind. They would smile at me and talk to me graciously, only to comment on my clothes and my life to others, behind my back. Now, when I look at people, all they have is loathing for something I am not responsible for, and negativity for reasons only God knows. Have I outgrown love? Am I too old to be complimented for my dress, or an achievement in my college? Maybe, I am. Because now, I catch myself wishing for no comments at all from others. Better to not say anything, than smothering you with false compliments.

World has become too cruel today, that it needs to be loved time and again. Today, it is me, tomorrow, it may be you. It is time, we fill this world with love, because in the end only love can save you. body
