Too Busy To Care

Have you ever stopped by a tea stall to save a kid from child labor? Probably you were getting late for work & ignored it. Did you get out of your car to help someone in a road accident; or assist an old man cross the road? Maybe you had to reach home to watch your favorite TV serial or cricket match. Perhaps you never bothered when a beggar was dying of undernourishment. Then, can we say that humanity still dwells inside us? We easily expostulate for what we do or just say, “Who cares?!”


Many a times, we are captious by nature and find excuses to blame something or someone. How many times do we actually act? Sometimes Yes, Mostly No! Because most of us are just Too Busy To Care. At times, we might follow the issue, but fail to act on it. Many of us want to do something for society but are unable to take out time. We feel, we reflect, we want to contribute, to act but something comes in the way. We feel inspired, moved and also guilty for not doing that something, anything. Most of the time, that inspiration loses its way in our packed, no-time-to-think, no-space-to-breathe, BUSY schedules.

Now, you have a chance.  A chance to act on that inspiration. To help. To care. To act. To do that something.

BlogAdda in collaboration with Tata Tea Jaago Re! gives you an opportunity to do something for the society, for humanity, for your inner self! Share with us those stories where you wanted to or want to do something but haven’t been able to.

    We people don’t care to improve our society, We are just dam busy with ourselves that we forget to give back to the society we are taking from. I like the jago re movement started by tata tea. Anyways I admire Ratan tata he is a great man, giving back to our society

Now I have some news to share with you all. I have quit my job, or rather the corporate world itself! Yes ppl, I have decided to go full time with YFS in sometime from now   I always wanted to start some such initiative, but had no idea when I would be doing it.  May be I thought I was too young to leave my nice Corporate job and take the plunge But thanks to Su and Shobhit, who helped me see through myself and realize what would actually make Me, actually ‘Us’ happy.  Must say I thought about many things – my career, all those positions I had dreamt of, that joy of earning my own money – but now I know they mean nothing in front of those smiling faces I get to see at the end of the day. Sounds very lofty I know, but still I wanted to put this down here, because I can come back and see what all I went through before I took the decision. The guilt of not earning for our family gripped me too – silly, no!? Am glad I am over all of it now and we took a collective decision – that makes me happier Su said just one thing on the night of Jan 26th  – ‘When you have the urge, do it. What gives us good sleep at night is not that money we are earning, but the satisfaction that we get out of the fact that we are trying to do our bit for the society’ And that did it – the first thing I did on the 27th morning was to send my resignation mail   Did u know u r my greatest source of strength Su? A senior personality in the field of  ‘Sewa’ while talking to us a few months before, said this one thing: ‘ India will shine in a few years from now. You choose whether you want to be the spectator or the player. Ofcourse, a spectator derives a lot of joy with what he has been seeing too; but a player gets more – that satisfaction is unbeaten!’  Loved it Phew! Am so glad to get it out of my system   Wish me luck and must say all your support and encouragement mattered a lot too   God bless! ETA: Submitting this to the TBTC contest at BlogAdda. […]

My work took me to monasteries and nunneries, where I tried to start a volunteer travel program to generate sustainable incomes and enable travelers to gain access to the teachings of Buddhism. These are travel tips that I picked up during my volunteering stint, and am now entering them into the Too busy to care syndrome contest. […]
