Every relationship does not have a name. Now, you must've heard this one a thousand times before. What is it that I am trying to say?
You share a relationship with your parents, your friends, your colleagues and your teachers. Is that the end of it? You occupy a seat in the train which was occupied by somebody else, you make friends and get linked to a larger network. You buy a flower from a roadside vendor - and make dinner five rupees easier for him/her. You watch a Shahrukh Khan movie and get entertained. You get stuck in traffic in a pool of cars. You are watching a news programme the same moment as lakhs of others are.
I am related - to the flowerseller, to my parents, to the TV viewers, to Shahrukh Khan, to the friend-of-my-friend.
We are all related. Because we are sharing this earth. Because we all have come from the same source of energy - and are threads to a larger journey.
