well i just had to write again i just read a quote: is ther life before death? anonymous! well i wish this person hadnt been anon would sent him a fan mail
i remember a few days ago writing on another space that we fight and struggle and spend so much time in office politics politics, make mistakes, get associated with misconceptions and wrong ppl and are prejudiced against rightly or wrongly! then we rush rush conflicts at home, rush rush money, relatiobships, etc etc and struggle to spend time with ppl we love! so what really is life? why are we so scared of death, what will we miss the sunrise and sunsets and love of close ones if they are around and the travel! so what if everyday we took a deep breath loved the sunrise and sunset and have all our faculties working and fight a fair fight! then even if we die tomo what did we miss?
is it that life is a tragedy and optimism makes it funnier and makes us laugh.
but someone close who died recently taught me a lot and though i am repeating myself, i saw how anyone and everyone associated to him remembered his goodness, from rickshaw wallahs to neighbours to friends as old as he was refusing to leave his side, he was always there for them always making peace always with a smile and a good word, i can remember the smile even as i write and i remember the modt impt thing he taught the value of being a good human being which is tough it is so easy to bring out my worst than my best. and see the good in other? by overcoming my own prejudices even tougher, but when i die i wish i can be remembered like he was because after reading in so many books for the first time i realised the value of goodness in ppl over money etc etc etc.
but i have a long way to go and like robert frost rightly said miles to go before i sleep………
