  • “I am really busy” Really?

It continues to be a fun Diwali season and it is a great time to meet people who you haven’t met in a long time. You run into them at parties and the ever-popular question is the icebreaker – “What are you up to these days?” Ironically, most of us (including myself) start with “I am really busy”.

On one such evening, we all laughed so hard when we found ourselves hiding behind this response. These days, it is a social norm to say this. Almost adds one’s sense of belongingness to the human race. Imagine! if you are the only one saying “I am not busy”, you could be an outcast or judged.

I am not saying it is good or bad to be busy. What I am saying is that, “Are we that busy?” The answer varies from person to person.

The irony is, we are the first generation that is most connected with advancements in technology so resources are not limited to connect. Is it time? Is it stress? Or is it fear?

All I know, we all realized at that instance that sometimes it sounds like an awful excuse. We laughed so hard – it was hysterical.
