Pondering over..

Was just wondering over.. during these festivities of Diwali and New Year why are people flocking in malls ?? There are ample places to visit in Mumbai - why just mall?? Was really surprised to see such behaviour of people.. was there any need to go shopping and splurging unnecessarily or is it just an obessession.. ??? Weren't festivals meant to spend quality time with family and near ones doing meaningful things..
With me away from family and with one family occasion nearing November end had gone to check and buy if I liked something for the occasion..but came back with this observation..

There is something we need to do to come out of our ghettoized behaviour..have some 'me time' 'family time' or are we just running away from ourselves and playing puppets to the chants of consumerism!!

its interesting that they would do that. here malls are usually deserted, or closed on holidays :-)

i think lack of open space or good parks are also responsible for this phenomena.

It's a nice place to show off what you're wearing... may be that's why? ;)

Social life surely has changed. India is becoming more like the US where everyone lives isolated life and sees family/relatives may be once or twice a year.
