Merits, Demerits, and Excellence

The things that we like, choose and acquire maybe because we are not given any other choice. Do we choose? Or, compelled to choose- the direction of our choices is carefully crafted by the available resources at that moment. Every little moment bond to stretch the pathways of our choices.
