Whenever life has made a move to a new phase I have always sat down and thought about what went by and what I am and should be looking forward to. I have realized that its been quite a deal, when I laughed, I cried as well, when I won, I lost too, when things were hunky dory, there was a sudden ugly twist in the tale. I realized that, this is LIFE. Whenever we laugh, we must be prepared to shed some tears. It can never be Spring always, Life is like seasons, we have phases, Nature has it defined but LIFE does not, sometimes winters are longer than Spring…like years long.

We get engulfed in the material things of our lives so much that we give up on enjoying the small things it has to offer. We keep running against time to achieve something but reach or achieve something different. So are we satisfied with what we have, we get…I don’t know but still we Live On,with the same zest as we do everyday or may be some days just drag ourselves to the mundane…

We live in a world of desires, needs and wants. We like to believe that we do not have any, we just live for the moment but its not that, we have all mostly picked up a battle with self. We are constantly at war with our wishes, dreams, desires, wants, needs. We do not know what is important for us, since for us everything is required. We do not know the difference I guess…

Talking about phases, come to think of it, each day brings with it a new dawn, and also it is end of a  yesterday, which is alive only in our hearts and thoughts. Moments of joy and sorrow of yesterday will not be with us tomorrow, there will be a new set of joy along…


Second Chance…

October 30, 2008

All of us are given a second chance in our life and in all stages of life. Its just that we should be able to identify it, however the irony is that most often we ignore it because we are so full with ourselves that we kind of miss the opportune moment.

I call Life a Play to be precise, a long running play. William Shakespeare has very finely expressed it in his play ‘As you Like It’ [2/7]

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

What better way to put it…the second chance is there in each stage of life. We miss it most of the time, imagine how would the life be, would it all the more different if we are able to identify THE SECOND CHANCE we get…

How different would it be or it will be the same end…since Life is a full circle. I have been thinking and continue to do so…
