A boy who is not so important
Recently, we all had celebrated women’s day on 8 of March. With over flooding of wishes and everyone talking about all the things that women can do, things they have achieved and comparing man and women.
Wait! Wait if you are thinking this is just another story about equality of man and women than you are probably wrong. Yes, I agree that the condition of women in our society is below par and they deserve more, in fact, a lot more but this is not a story about a girl but this is a story about a boy who is not so important.
Right from the birth, we all have been thought that man should not cry and they are responsible for every doing. You all have been so caught up in proving that girls and better than boys that no one ever bothers to look up to a boy who is not so important. Yes, I am that guy who is not important. I am shy, Introvert and I like spending time alone reading books, watching movies and sitcoms rather than going out and chasing girls.
You, people, make fun of me for not having a girlfriend and you call all kinds of names like “pussy”, “ “fattu” I guess I am all this but it’s not I like to be or I prefer to be like that it’s just how I was made.
“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
I went to all boys school and it’s just that I don’t have any sisters so I am not that comfortable with girls. Even in movies, it’s always about the Macho guy and Macho girl or Macho guy and simple girl but what about the boys like us. You, people, make fun of us and call us with all kinds of a name like ‘nerds’,bookworm’, ‘turd’ etc.
Yes, I am 21 years old and I haven’t tasted alcohol or done drugs or even kissed a girl yet but does that make me less of a man???
Do the chauvinism and masculinity can only be measured by the number of girls we have been with???
Right from childhood, I have grown up with literally no special attention. I do not possess any special talent so basically, I don’t even exist for the society. Even in a classroom, I would sit comfortably in the corner, making no noise and pretending like I don’t exist. Social media has given a platform for people to connect each other but it seems that social media only brings more disappointment for me.
“Maybe we all are Harry living under the staircase and waiting for some magic to happen”
Ending on a high note, I would just like all of you to just so little attention to the people like us even we crave for attention and love.
