The Common Man

Sometimes, I doubt if being a common man is praiseworthy. This common man has the most challenging life on this planet. He is not guaranteed any comforts from birth and has to work towards it. He faces all the downs when the economy is at the brink. He rarely enjoys the upside when the economy is doing terrific, but he sure gets a coupon here and there to enjoy the perks.

The Commoner is a brutal hit whenever a catastrophic event occurs. When politicians strike countries, this common man suffers. 

When Mother Nature strikes, he faces the brunt of it. When inflation is at its highest, this common man suffers since his pay does not increase; as a result, it restricts his power of purchases.

Amidst all these hassles of everyday life, he also faces dishonest officials who want to churn out the small resources that this common man has saved for emergencies. Corruption makes the common man be strip naked.

This common man suffers a lot throughout his lifetime, but he always meets with a smile and extends a hand when another man is in trouble. 

Although the daily hassles demotivate me, I am proud to be this common man, but the inner conscious speaking to me constantly makes me feel how blessed I am to have a conscious since many people have lost it amidst the hustle-bustle of life.

Being a common man is challenging, but it takes a lot of work and motivation to walk a single step.

Jai Ho!

Salute to the common man! He/she is deprived of many things but offers his/herself with generosity.

Their plight didn't change but they never give up.
