I use a religious outlook and a more cool pro entertainment one. Such a behavior of switching between different moods and outlooks make us seem more like selfish creatures as a chameleon but in the end this is what we all practice after all “ Only The Fittest Survives”. Appearance in a more formal gathering with elders and family members signal me to look more appealing in that particular situation. Appealing here refers not to physical beauty but to the best behavior that makes me attractive. Thus, I adopt a more Islamic behavior paying more attention to the traditional practices and Islamic doctrines that are stressed upon us since childhood.
We talk about prayers, about our holy book, about fasting, about pilgrimage and even some past religious events. Thus the whole theme under such a circumstance is transformed to religion. Such an outlook if portrayed in front of friends or relatives of similar age would be regarded as ineffective or in other words “silly”. Therefore, it works best and attracts admiration by elders. Elders seem to appreciate it, as in our culture association with a pious or a purely fair person is widely sought.
Even for the search of groom parents seek a match for their daughters who has a good job and is religious; says prayers five times a day and a fasts regularly. Similar is the case when parents search a bride match for their sons. The bride is desired to have as less interaction with friends, being as religious and conservative as possible. Therefore I tend to be more religious. On the other hand, while enjoying with friends I adopt an entirely different outlook.
Friends are people whom you can trust and be frank with. Thus, things that are done with them, stays with them. We watch movies, talk about actresses and girls, play games and have fun. This behavior of mine if seen from the eyes of my elders would attract strong criticism possibly being included in the realm of “forbidden” actions. There is a time when everybody gets exhausted and stressed out. Thus, the frustration needs to be gotten rid of by means of entertainment which can not be possible with elders.
Coupled with this, I adopt an attitude which can at times make me look cool or acceptable in the gathering at either university or my locality. I depict myself to be fond of rock music, liking action packed movies and games. My friends are really thrilled by this attitude of mine as this is what they also do themselves. Hence, I sometimes have to adapt to what they do or like to attract their interests and strengthen our friendship.
