Emotional Meltdown – Tale about Love, Life and Recession


How everything changed after September 2008? Karen’s life was free. He was known for his perpetual smile in his neighbourhood. His life was full of movement. He had friends around him always but nothing good last forever. He walks alone like a dead man in this cacophonous world now. He eats noodles at night; he sees nightmares and talks with himself sometimes.

He wears worn out clothes and tattered shoes. He no more dreams. All his expectations were taken away from him. The ugly wind of recession made him a self made moron. Karen was never so lonely like he is now. He lost his self confidence, he lost everything. The broken mirror in his room exudes nothing but pain. He is invisible now…

His existence is nothing but a burden for everyone. Karen’s life is no more flowery. All his skills faded away with time. Tonight Karen is silent. Tonight he isn’t even talking to himself…

Recession came as a shocker to everybody. The urban population in almost every part of the world got affected and Karen is no exception. There are thousands and millions of such Karen today. The hangover is fatal and almost everyone is its victim.

The unpredictable waft of wind made Karen a mannequin. He is still living with the shadows. There is great melancholy everywhere. There is a sense of insecurity now unlike our past. We have to perform everyday otherwise we are out of the race. We are just nothing. There are so many rules to follow, there are so less of life. People say recession is over but people like Karen is still struggling to recover from the tragedy.

The Satan is dancing vehemently everywhere. The beauty of life is losing its sheen. The narcissism is rising. It’s definitely not the era of experimentation. The world disregards people like Karen now because he is a dreamer. You have to be practical now for survival. You have to slog like a dog. Your exhaustion can bring rise otherwise you will be dumped and forgotten.

Why there’s so much desperation everywhere? Why everyone is moving at the speed of light? Why everyone is cribbing? Why the world is fast changing into a pot of gloom? We have no answers. We are just moving on with the flow. We are all labors working for our daily wage. We have no soul; we are powered by batteries that need constant charging. There’s no room for people like Karen. We miss our salad days. We miss our care free existence. The killing suffocation around makes us quiver at the middle of the night. Everything depends upon Now. Recession brought pain to everyone’s life. Everyone fell from the cliff with a loud thud.

Karen is waiting for that silver lining, he is still dreaming. He is walking the same aisles without any expectation. He is waiting for a miracle; he is still waiting for that eternal sunshine…
But the shadows of crisis still linger on…
