Once upon a time, there were phones that weren’t mobile, people were. If a phone rang, people ran to it to answer the call. Television was black, white and grey, life was full of different colours. ’Fast’, in connection with food, meant delaying gratification. Once upon a time, parents and elders set rules, children followed as a matter of fact. Your village was your world.
Once upon a time, grandparents (or the likes) told stories to children. The stories, invariably beginning with ‘once upon a time’, were from their memories; myths, folklore, history or personal lives. Stories defined, set boundaries around our world. And we lived happily ever after.

Amidst the millions of stories we can choose from, we try to find those that help define our world. And we live forever finding and seeking happiness. Do we find it?
