Getting Older Every Day
Have you ever realized that when you woke up today on a rainy Sunday morning in India, you became older than yesterday ?
Did you see your face in the mirror ?
If not then I will kindly suggest that you leave reading this blog and see yourself in the mirror. Watching oneself in mirror is a pleasant activity. It would be better if you use a concave mirror instead of plane mirror as concave mirrors in bathrooms enlarges small features on face and minute observation becomes possible.
In fact, mirrored wall or full-length mirrors are good for soul searching. Some people use glossy bedroom mirrors to see themselves in their birthday suit. It’s good. But, not everyone is comfortable in this state. We have become obsessed about curves/flats/biscuits/washboard appearances.
Are we talking about human bodies or commodities on shelf of a shopping complex ! I hate Facebook , Instagram, WhatsApp status feature or any other similar apps for this narcissistic feature. How can an actor look good even when he/she is sweating profusely in a gym ?
Gross ! Sick ? Stop this nonsense !
Why do they post such videos ? Why do they want me to exercise and work hard when I can sleep peacefully away from worries of a boring life ? Laziness is a virtue in our times. If you don’t agree then going to a medical professional may help you.
Mark my words.
No one is important.
Earth will not stop rotating if you will sleep for some more hours. Many of our important ancestors are sleeping peacefully in their graves.
Has world ended after rise and subsequent collapse of Roman empire or for that matter any empire in any part of the globe ?
But, coming back to mirror –
So, what do you see in mirror ?
Is it lying ? Are you a better version of yesterday’s image ?
If not then start thinking about yourself.
It is a proven fact the majority of people attains the peak of physical or mental fitness around the age of 30 years. So, what happens after you have rotated 30 times around the Sun ? Where will you go now ?
Can you prolong this process ? Science says yes and people have prolonged their fit life beyond 30s. Sport stars are living example of this phenomena.
If you are interested in tennis then Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on men’s side and Serena Williams on women’s side look fighting fit even in their late 30s. I will not take into account fitness status of movie stars or common man as looks can be deceiving and seeing always is not believing.
Older Sportsperson are fighting duel with teenagers and beating them regularly so by that logic they signify the supreme fitness.
But, everyone can’t become a Federer and life is more than a bloody sport.
So, most people peak around 30 years and then the decaying process commences.
Greying hair, baldness, poor vision, body pains, weak heart and other body parts symbolizes ageing process and organs start decaying. It is more or less like ripening process of a mango. When the time comes , mangoes fall off the branch and end it’s life. Sometimes it goes in stomach of a living being or many times it just rots away on the earth.
You can maintain a healthy body and live 100 years or more by applying science in your life but think about quality of life.
What is the goal of living ? What is the purpose ? What makes you happy ? Why are you living and for whom ? If you go today, who will cry for you ?
People die of natural or man-made causes daily.
I still vividly remember the death of a former news anchor in Mumbai last year. She was on her regular morning walk, a perfectly normal-looking coconut tree fell on her and she died on the spot. It was captured on camera and you won’t believe the freakish nature of this incident unless you see it with your own 02 eyes.
Nothing to panic. Freak accidents keep happening time and again.
But, does ageing gracefully and dying suddenly has any connection.
Deep questions with no definite answers.
So, life is strange. But , what matters is how you live life.
Happiness is a state of mind. Do you know how to become happy ?
I wonder, if we can discover a happiness pill one day ? You feel sad, feel lousy, feel tired, feeling worse, de-motivated – pop a pill.
You become happy.
So, now onwards, don’t think about anything. Sunset is not in your hands, even of your life ! Worry less and let the life flow like water. It will go on , no matter how many stones are lying in it’s path.
Nothing matters. No one knows, what happens when you die ?
Stay happy. Do anything and everything. Nothing in this world is good or bad.
Stop ageing process. See yourself in mirror everyday and start laughing.
Do not try to find logic in my blog, there isn’t any !
With touching every aspects of life precisely the life cycle has been summed up marvelously
Well riped mango always fell down.
It is always pleasure to read your blog. The randomness of the writing blended with your effervescent thoughts together make a very sexy combo… Keep writing.
Thank you Abhishek for encouraging words
Thank you Sudhir. Season of mangoes will again come back next year.
Thank you for appreciation.
Your admission to no logic made me smile…Thank you for the follow 🙂
Very interesting and descriptive. A new outlook or starting point when we wake each day, today is not the same as yesterday and neither are we the same as we were the previous day. Constant progressing change. I wrote something today that I would like to leave with you and your readers to examine, my hope is that it will be helpful.
