When someone tries to be the one that he is not, he always looses and takes pains. What is seen in our society and which is the growing culture as well, people try to pose a lot. Many people are materialistic and the desires never end.
We can live a simplistic life. There should be basic things of need only and whatever that is meant for show off should not be adopted. It is many times when the young people protest this show off and materialism and they are scolded by the old ones.
Materialism and show off needs a lot of money and keeps the person in constant tension. Speaking against them strongly can only change the setup of the society.
