Ek Pal Ka Jeena....

....Phir Tho Hai Jaana...
Tohfa Kya Leke Jaaye, Dil Yeh Bataana
Khaali Haath Aaye They Hum
Khaali Haath Jaayenge
Bas Pyaar Ke Do Meethey Bol Jhilmilaayenge
Tho Hans kyonki Duniya Ko Hai Hansaana.... 
I woke up to some very bad news this morning: First, the sudden death of my friend’s father in India. Second, the earthquake in Japan. It was devastating to hear. My heart goes out to my friend and the rest of her family and the thousands and thousands of people in Japan during this difficult time.

News like this though disturbing, serves as a reminder that life is just so unpredictable and we never know what each day will bring.

People who have suffered loss today had no choice. Destiny forced them to let go of their dear ones and all the other material stuff that they would have been endearingly attached to. But there are times when we do have the choice to let somethings go: No argument, anger, jealousy or revenge against any person can ever be worth it if destiny plays its trick and you don’t see that person ever again. Letting go is a kind of bravery.

Each day is a miracle. Let us live it to the fullest. Let us spread smiles, kindness and love. Let us learn to forgive and grab every opportunity to be happy and make others around us happy and make this life worthwhile.


  1. very thoughtful.. and very true. Life is random and unpredictable. Make the most of every moment :)
