Time and tide....

An extract from Pink Floyd's "Time" goes like this:

"And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death"

I have heard the song many times before but today I heard it in the car when Darsh was dropping me off to work. It suddenly stuck me - "Yup I MUST make a comment on my blog in this" (These days I seem to thinking of everything in blog terms :-p).

Sometimes somethings make so much sense. I don't know whether the author was really philosophical when he wrote this, but the sentences sure came out that way. Its so true. People have this crazy wish of living longer and longer. To accomplish what, no one knows. When you are struggling pretty bad to avoid death, age sneaks up on you and you realize that life has passed by without you actually achieving anything. And why this need of achievement? Isn't it enough that you've had a contented and a happy life? Why always this quest for more, more and more??? Ok I'm becoming too philosophical now. The whole point of what I'm trying to say is take life as it comes. The simple fact is that tomorrow might never come for you (If I say this in front of my mom or MIL, they'll say "say bidthu" (There's a belief that whenever you say bad things like this, its actually not you saying it, but a spirit possessing your tongue ;-) Bidthu mean "It has left" indicating the spirit)). But its the truth. You/I may not be alive tomorrow, so what's the point in worrying about death today?

Ok Suththi jaasti aaithu (meaning I'm lecturing a lot) and I know that I have to stop now. I can only repeat - Life's too short to waste it away by worrying about death. And Death is the end result of life. So, Don't worry be happy :)
