New 30s in Hotel style!


Someone said “Home is where the heart is.” Meaning People long to be at home. Your home is whatever place you long to be.

I feel in our times, to feel rooted is rare.

I look back a decade of my own life and feel “Home is where the work is”! – is the current expression of our times. I look around and I’m not the only one – moving to places for work.  Late 20s or early 30s, late 30s or early 40s – people are living a kind of contemporary bachelor life ; married, unmarried, having kids, having families – in short, long distant family lives!

Somewhere I read “Bachelors… These mysterious characters since ancient times attract the attention of mankind, or rather, the best part of it. And that is legitimate, because they are the only ones who find strength to resist all-marriageable instinct requiring the birds must nest, the beasts – digging  burrows, and human – expect of a family.”

Other thing follows is Living Classy. Young, Fashionable and Undoubted. The new spirit of our times, thinking first impression is everything; stylish yet comfortable environment with as many amenities as they can get. That sounds like a hotel to me! Living everyday life in a hotel or a resort style setting, for days and months and sometimes years. Architects talk about creating micro-climate; and here we create micro-homes, a fully equipped nests I call it. The only difference from “home” is – here we live alone. Wonder where the bluetooth generation or so called Generation Z is going to end up or rise – a constant journey so far, as it seems.

A lot of times I try to intervine any two or more interests to get inspired and apply rules of one to the other and find interesting results. I'm always observing and learning from the world around me as I think one life is just not enough to grasp the beauty of our world.

    I like this blog. It’s really true that in developed and under developed countries the life of the man kind is changed. Young generation is suffered more because they are the only economical base for the family. These days the concept of HOME goes with economical conditions only. We all know that our earth have enough resources for our need but not enough for our greed. I remember the lines of a song goes with present situation. “Jaha pe savera ho basera vahni hai”. In reality “Jahna pe basera ho savera vanhi hai”.
    Work pressure rises the distance between relationships and mankind is becoming lonely. with all facilities a house could not be a home without dear ones.

  2. I feel like our generation is at a very interesting juncture of our society’s journey from family-centric living towards individualism. While our previous generation was still firmly rooted in family-oriented values, the next generation is likely to be more independent and self-centric than ever before. And here we are, at the crossroads, wondering about and reflecting on the changing tides.

    • Just like every generation goes through series of changes towards rebuilding their value structure over and over for better of course, as they think, we are going through our own at the moment. But the outcome is seen much later, for which I am nervous if we would be able to carry all the good with us.
