I just grew old...

No, I havent aged... the title is the excuse we often give in life for not doing things we once enjoyed...
There are many things we love but feel ashamed to admit that we love them thinking that we are too big to like them... duh??? One day while sitting at my cousins place, I saw that he was watching teletubbies and surprisingly I remembered everything about it... the names of the characters and their habits.. and the smiling sun.. and their house.. each and every detail... for some moments, I was years back... reliving all I had already lived and then I realised what all I was missing...
I shall never be able to smile in innocence seeing Teletubbies again... for today there are things that govern my mind... I have a future to make.. career to choose... and many hopes to live upto. As I will grow, these will increase and one day I will sooner or later, forget teletubbies.

Maybe years later, if I see a kid watching the show... I might put a comment 'Oh this show still comes? I watched it when I was your age.' but I will never get that pleasure again and to be honest I am very selfish here... I dont want to loose that carefree smile. Why should I grow up to be sad?

We all love cartoons and I dont think there is anyone who didnt watch Scooby Doo, Dexter's Lab, Pokemon, Powerpuff girls, Tom and Jerry, Noddy and so many other shows. But today, if we see someone else watching them, we will just say "how childish!" ... or ask our younger siblings to grow up and concentrate on something worth while...

See I do agree to the fullest that these shows donot give anything that can be considered worth while to anyone who has passed the age when we loved the show but this doesnt mean the show isnt good! Think of it... how many times have you smiled seeing Tom being tricked by Jerry... or sung the Dexter's Lab title track? Have you not wanted a doggie like scooby? I donot feel anything bad in admitting yes... I love these shows and no matter what so ever they will always be my favourite for you know what - they gav me uncountable number of smiles! They worked as a kind of link for 2 strangers... if u dont know a person but you both like a common show... and u just start talking about it.. who knows tomorrow you can be best of friends...

Well.. I know all this is pointless to all who say 'I have grown up' but I will say that neither have I grown up and nor do I plan to! If discovering new paths in life means to quit old ones... forget it I am not aboard!!
