A Universal Curse

In our present day society, there is a whole generation of upper-class-brats being raised at a terrifying speed.  The brats are children who have been cursed systematically by the influence of getting ‘too much, too quickly, too easily,’ from their over-indulgent short-sighted parents, and even grandparents.


Part of the pattern is that everything is laid out for the above category of youngsters like a banquet; very exacting routine of the banquet is that it is never ending!  Day after day is piled in giving the kids enjoyment and amusement of extravagance.  I know of very common situations arising where the lifestyle of a seven year old comes with the announcements of his birthday party guaranteeing a princely event for the kid’s buddies and their nannies.  Treated as equals to be majorly impressed – how can mama’s sahelis – friends, be left out!  Worst of the excess is the gullible sahelis falling in the same trap of totally mimicking the absurd conduct of the hostess.  ‘We will splash a better theme for our kids beating at every turn this party!’


It is an open vow, our society has sworn to become more and more decadent.
