About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

What if we all came with expiry dates on us?

We all know when we are born, sometimes even to the minute of when we are born.

But what if we also knew exactly when we would die?

How much different would you lead your life?

What would you do differently?

Problem is we humans know we are mortal but many a times we live an immortal life.

We may want to do something, but we procrastinate or we put it off till tomorrow, or till next time.

Many of us do not even have proper plans – whether it is life plans, vacation plans or any plans.

But what if today, God or someone close to God came to you and said, you will die (or as an Indian would say, you will expire) on 21 December 2012.

Okay, so you now got slightly more than 2 years to live.

I am sure you will do something you have always wanted to do.

What if it was 20 Feb 2020?

You have got about 10 years to live.

I am sure you would still plan it well and do things you want to do.

But now, we do not have an expiry date and we live our lives like there will be no end and we can just postpone things until tomorrow or later.

Why don’t we live like there is no tomorrow? Or as American Idol winner Kris Allen says, “Live like we are dying.”

Why don’t we put any urgency to important things in our lives?

Why do we keep complaining and venting about work, or parents, or siblings, or this friend or that person?

I am no different.

I want to be different.

But actions speak louder than words. And many obligations, trials and turbulences always block us from moving forward.

We keep trying but never doing.

That is the most difficult. To live like you are dying … We all are.

"After all is said and done, more is said than done," Aesop.

Take care and be well.
