It’s Over!

At times all you want is to go away from all the melodrama around.   

……….

There is a difference between sensitivity and melodrama…

Sensitivity is about ‘paying attention to and taking care of’ even the smallest of things. Apparatus, methods, mannerisms, hints, words, tone, gestures, and even their interconnections – all matter. In short, a place for everything and everything at its place! In spite of this, in sensitivity, ‘you let small things remain small, and do not blow them out of proportions’.

On the contrary, in melodrama, ‘you do not let small things remain small; you blow them out of proportions to make them big’. Every ‘out of place’ thing is overhyped, every word is analyzed threadbare, every gesture is taken as a hint, every aberration is seen as a mistake, and what you miss suddenly becomes the most sacrosanct. And alas, often it is confused as sensitivity.

……….

Well! What separates ugly melodrama from beautiful sensitivity is just one thing… ‘Over’.
