Though there is absolutely no reason for me to worry about anything in life, as I’m well looked after by my children, my mouth is wide enough and in working conditions to yell at my children or eat what I want to, my ears are big enough to hear all unwanted sundry news, my eyes are wide enough to see good, bad, not so good and not so bad scenes, I had a habit of worrying about many things before , such as :
my brother’s comforts, safety of my bank deposits, the havoc stray dogs and cattle would be committing in my house premises when my tenants leave the gates open when they go out, the weeds growing in my ‘thodi’ or vacant land, whether my Habsiguda neighbor’s daughter in law gave birth to a boy or girl baby, when will Megh will take me to Hyderabad so that one button missing from one of my warm jackets can be fixed, etc, etc.
Now with Covac19 Yekshi’s dark shadow spread everywhere, I worry about nothing else. I worry only about me, about my life. I realized suddenly that my life has a purpose !
I may not be required by others, but I need me ! And man, I’m not joking! May be a nobody to others but for me, I’m the most precious one in the world !
If me, a worthless old man of no consequence, who has lived his full life, who has nothing more to gain in life, who has nothing to contribute to his family or society, is so anxious to live, imagine how serious is the loss of valuable lives sucked in by the deadly virus and the suffering their families undergo!
Life is precious, yours and others too.
Live it. Don’t spoil others chance to live their life
Only when money is lost one will realize the value of money
Only when the wife is gone, one will realize the value of wife
When life is gone?
Who is there to realize it?
There are people- your family, close relatives and friends
Live your life in dignity, with love and compassion .
Don’t let an invisible, innocuous, insignificant virus take away your life.
Stay safe inside!
