Even if u win the rat race you are still a “RAT”!!!!!!!!!! long work hours, unpaid overtime, stressful job, time spent commuting, less time for family life and/or friends life is the common problem shared by almost everyone on this planet. Here rat race is a very common attribute to describe the dull, endless & monotonous lifestyle of the new generation which makes them aloof of the relatives, friends and a more enthusiastic and encouraging life.
Rat race describes the mad behaviour of a rat running endlessly in the race of this world without any reward or gain in return &finally get intangled into the bleak world of dissappointments and discouragement. The same outlook has been adopted by the man, running madly to step above in the social ladder or in a desire of devt. get himself trapped in the cobwebs of life. Life is not only about success or achievements but more to live it to the full extent by enjoing each and every moment of it and it is possible when we maintain a work-life balance and dedicate it to our biggest supporters ie. ur family and friends it is rightly said that “There is more to life than increasing its speed. ” similarly always looking for promotions and keep indulging yourself in the mad goose race of competition wil make your life ‘lifeless’ and at some point of life u feel like being isolated from the world around you which is the highest defeat of the person that even after getting success he don’t found anybody to celebrate with; so ultimately it is your biggest failiure & not the success.
Even the business tycoon ‘vijay mallya ‘says that his philosphy of work is ‘first work hard and then party hard’. It states that each person needs some recreation or solace in his life to shed away the stress and dullness from it. It is rightly said that human wants are unlimited so after getting the success , the quest to get more is always there , it is like an endless dark tunnel so we must enjoy this beautiful life bestowed to us by the almighty and move on the right track by not keeping your happiness at stake for the achievements in life.
We should not forget that “”A rat race is for rats. We are not rats. We are human beings. Reject the insidious pressures of society that would blunt your critical faculties to all the happenings around you that would caution silence in the face of injustices lest you jeopardize your changes of promotions and self advancement. This is how it starts and before you know where you are you are a fully-paid up member of the rat pack. The price is too high. It entails a loss of your dignity and human spirit. ” By nidhi seth ( bbs )
