Wondering as always at the things that are taken for granted a phrase from a friend made me pause on the question: What is normal? I may pack certain things which for me are pretty normal but then it may not be the kind of definition that my sister or mother may adhere to. Probably let us analyse certain insights into the very common word -- normal.
A schizophrenic: That voice, the voice which echoes within me always. Its the most normal thing. Voices.
A student: Classes? Movies perhaps. This is pretty normal yaar.
Lover: Roses/Moon are passe. Gazing into the eyes. Na. Why do the normal?
Rakhi Sawant: Arrey arranged marriage is naarmal. I go for Swayamvar. Not so naarmal these days.
Mother: Sacrifice, love that is unconditional. These define normalcy for mothers throughout the ages.
Scanning through the above instances, the word 'normal' is pretty unique to individuals and maybe types. But then is there something 'normal' that fits into the vocabulary of every one irrespective of being a mother, student, etc. Maybe sleeping in the afternoon, eating and other habits can be classified as 'normal.' I must admit that this post is a tad fuzzy but then normalcy is like that after all.
