It is a story of a young man who never tried to find out the good and bad in a situation but rigidly stuck with opinions formed in childhood. The luxury of not having ab obligation to accepting responsibility to one's own deeds is often penalized by the price in the form of badly hurt self confidence, deteriorated self image and lack of self esteem and confidence.


4. A Good Escape Route

     Bubby has started thinking of fleeing away from home, but, being conditioned to behave like a timid boy, he could not dare to do so. Sometimes he thinks of even suicide also. however he neither know the reason for such feeling nor the reason for his loved ones' do not care attitude.

Now the confusion started to gripping him around more and more. "what exactly should i do?" he asked himself. "should I be honest, or cunning?, should I be ethical or practical?, should I aim at the target sales or customer satisfaction and retention?" But he don't have a clear understanding of perceptions and opinions to judge. Emotionally he has got hurt so badly to think in a proper way. He escaped himself into books.

       Priest smiled "yes, we should, but we should face life from our body, our identity, They see the issues from their perspective, but ultimately it is us who needs to face the consequences. many times, Likelihood of escaping from responsibility disguises as respect for elders, many times. understood?.."
