Becoming Aware...

I have to admit..when the news of the takeover of Aware first broke, I didn't pay much heed to it. I'm generally quite passive about current affairs..But the newspaper coverage of it was intensive and so I dutily followed the saga through the reports. I also started asking my colleagues about how they felt about it. Most ..were like me, ambivalent. Some didn't even bother to read about it saying that it doesn't really concern them. Even though my stance was rather blasé initially, I still continued to follow the saga and on the night before the Aware EGOM, I don't know why but I just felt that it was the right thing to show up to cast my vote of no-confidence..I began to acknowledge that the series of happening has affected me somehow and that I shouldn't choose to remain bochap and remain apathetic. I guess I realised that if everyone had the same feelings as I had, then it will be really sad.
