Camera, Filters, Upload!

Welcome to the theatre of social media


Where we play the roles of a director, writer, protagonist……
of the movies we call stories 

Where we have learnt to fool people
by showing them the evens
like the odds don’t exist
the good
like the bad does not exist

Where you have gotten them to believe that
quintessential life is one that is lived large and extra ordinarily

Where you have used the filters to hide you insecurities
while spreading them to your audience

Haven’t these stories made it easier for the world to know
Who is your partner (BAE as they call it!)
Because as a director of the movie you get the right to choose
“Who will I declare as my love, friend, enemy and acquaintances”
Also giving you the opportunity to decide for how many episodes
will they last

Because like the attendance sheet of college
you need to be present and active here
Or else they might forget
YOU EXIST (And Yes, they will judge you!)

Also the rule is to give more importance to  the publicity of love and affection,
fear and hesitation,
Because how will anyone ever know what you feel
Until you publicly acclaim it

Where these theatres have also performed the work of courts
Not as the court of justice but of incomplete and meddled knowledge
But this hasn’t stoped them from passing strict judgements 
over serious issues and disasters while sitting at home and sipping some cola

And don’t you think they do not have the pressure of how will this movie perform
Because they swell their fingers by tapping on insights to check the no. of views,
no. of likes, etc

Thus, today there is no need to go to a theatre for a movie
There are just too many playing around you
With no show time restriction, no torrents required

Like every other movie how smartly have we edited
the behind the scenes and
only shown the parts that were necessary
For people to see how good is your life
and moral of the movie;

making them feel insecure and comparing to others

Now since we have all that is required for a movie
Lets us also have an honest disclaimer.

 

-Isn’t it tiring playing all the roles alone?
