U | U for Us


What is the first thing that comes to your mind when anyone says “U”. Most likely it is YOU :)

We are all a by-products of the environment (era and society) we belong to

And the kind of upbringing we’ve had

The environment affects our thoughts, words, emotions and actions

This makes us develop habits

We fall victim to these habits

And we become programmed to think in set ways

Which more often than not is really about OURSELVES


And hence life revolves around I, Me and Myself
Sometimes it is about my loved ones and dear ones, but beyond that ….it is a ?
And that is our world of US
For many of us, this way of thinking is a way of life and the way it has always been

Sometimes, just sometimes
If you stretch the boundary of US to include
An unknown face
A needy soul
A past foe
A person whose name you don’t know
A random stranger
A hungry child
A sad neighbor
A person in need of help
An ailing individual
A tired human
An emotionally low soul
A disturbed person
A person in debt
A lonely person

And give them
A smile
A hug
A shoulder
An advice
A gift
A look
A hand
A hearing
A touch
A prayer
A message
A support
A little care
Love
Kindness
Empathy

How the world could / would be?
Imagine, if everyone of us expanded the circle of US, how different things could be / would be?

Do you agree / disagree? Leave a comment to let me know

  4. I tried to teach my children to draw a circle large enough to be inclusive, not a small circle that leaves people out.
