People advise what to wear or act on certain occasions, like a dressed monkey for a grand feast. There have been a few instances where people acted lowly because of my dressing.

I wonder who decides what we should wear or how we carry ourselves: consumerism lobby, which thrives on selling more? All are chasing it like rats believing it’s our bucket list? We are throwing authenticity and originality to the dustbin on a quest of fitting into this world.

We eat, act, project, or behave how others want us to see. My simple question is, why? As long as we are not offending anyone, why can we not be as we are?

Be it personal or professional life: I end up meeting lab rats of consumerism and society faking and making up like life is a popularity contest. I have nothing against them. It is just that my time is not for them.
