Why has it become so hard to see people who are really ‘Ziddi’? I don’t have an equivalent English word for ‘Ziddi’. Why is it so difficult to see people who’re struggling, fighting, failing, bouncing back, ¬†fighting again, failing, failing then winning? Why is it that everyone I see around seems to be complacent and have compromised with the problems?

Why is it that no one is pushing the limits (except pushing the limits of laziness)? Why is it that no one really cares about anything?

    He he. A Very Big Question. Because we, since births, are taught to adjust and compromise. But actually people have realized the philosophy in *some* other way.

    Ziddi – Stubborn. But the context in which you are using the word it seems to be more like unyielding or determined.

    And to answer your question, because we are human and naturally prone to complacency!! However every now and then, there is a spark which fuels the creation drive.

      English doesn’t have words to do justice to the words in Hindi/Marathi. I mean ‘Ziddi’ as in someone who’s won’t give up – and keep trying to achieve something.
