Family is an integral part of anyoneâ€™s life, in whatever form. You form a myriad of relations with the people you call your family, not one relationship is the same. There are those I call family but am very unfamiliar with, although I may spend a lot of time in their presence I havenâ€™t taken the relationship to the next level, nor have I felt the need to. Even relations that I did take to the next level, they too can lose their charm over the years, without necessarily meaning the whole relationship ending. Walking along the Sampige and Brigade streets, the relations of the people with the roads is what struck me the most. The messy over-head wires was a common sight in both the places, the different ways they complimented their respective roads and the unique relations formed with the people is what inspired me. How something so common and seemingly unimportant in our lives really does impact us without our knowledge.
More often than not we tend to overlook things that play a prominent role in our lives,
take them for granted.
Without realizing, we either accept them into our lives...
...or form a more passive relationship.
Sometimes nostalgia is what keeps it going
and sometimes the thrill of discovering something new.
It may feel like we are poles apart...
...share very different company,
but theres bound to be connections.
We are all undeniably wired differently,
but at the end of the day,
we are family.
