Today, the prompt is “FABRIC” I just wonder how do you know what I am thinking in my subconscious mind. All the Prompts until now are just what I am going through or I am thinking about. Restart, Congregate, Messy, Imagination and Above, all these words I am living every day, I think maybe we all are living all these words in real life, together. Ok, hmmm, so today the prompt is fabric, I came to know about this in the morning and now its afternoon. Although I already thought about my theme and story, at actual writing time, now I am feeling a change in my article.
In general FABRIC is referred to a woven piece, a cloth, also used in relation to construction building type stuff.
FABRIC as in cloth has been changed its material and type in past generations. Originally the fabric was created with only natural things. The outer layer of silkworms and from cotton. These are the two basic materials used to create the fabric called Silk and Cotton for ages. Now as the demand increased the fake material took a big place in the market which is cheap as compared to Cotton and Silk. But it can be produced in mass, with use of machines and new techniques. The world has changed and use of this fake material is in big demand. The fake is neither a very good choice for us nor for nature. Still, the use is on an increase. Mahatma Gandhi during the freedom fight encouraged Khadi, a fabric which is made by spinning wheel.
If we talk about the fabrication of our own sensibility, construction of our own society, we live in a fake world today. The originally fabricated societies emotions are somewhere in the background, they are just trailing, and soon they will die completely. We are on a verge, where we are destructing our true nature. It has become hard to come up with a true emotion in front of someone. We all are hiding our feelings, trying to showcase what we are not. We smile, we laugh we show empathy but we hide the truth wearing a mask on our face. The reason behind hiding the truth is we don’t trust anyone What would they say, what would they think, how would they react are the wringers we get in our mind before expressing ourselves. We change the original with fake and avoid any inquiries.
This is the time to call for getting back to our roots and nurture them to fabricate a healthy self and society. I know after closing my laptop I will be wearing all those fake cloths again! 🙂
