“न मोहब्बत न दोस्ती के लिएLines from a song by Jagit Singh
वक़्त रुकता नहीं किसी के लिएI”
“Be it either Love or Friendship, Time waits for nothing.”
True words spoken in a beautiful manner. Yes, they are true to the core indeed. Time waits for nothing. It’s just us, human beings, who can wait for things or people in life. Get stranded in one place for a mere emotion or feeling. But time moves on, leaving us behind. So much behind, that nobody observes us anymore. It’s like we get invisible or something. But, do we care?
Have we ever considered that what is it about these feelings that we get tempted to halt? What is it about emotions like love and friendship that we get ready to fall behind in time? Why is there this urge to experience them at least once in this lifetime? What great power do they possess that no one can surpass them? I am asking all these questions because; I have been touched by these emotions in life too. When the time came to choose between love and time, I chose love. When the time came to choose between time and friendship, yes, I chose friendship. And look where it has taken me! Way behind time. But, do I have any regrets? No, never! Because I know what these feelings and emotion taught me. I know what it felt like. And trust me, it felt good! They made me a different person somehow. They brought out the good side in me. That’s why I have no guilt in my life. Even if I have wasted time I have lived and survived somehow. And for me, that’s enough. So what if I am a loser in keeping up with time and wasting the opportunities that may have pushed me up on the ladder of success? I still feel like I am a winner!
Yes, the time has moved on, but, there’s still hope. Yes, I am left behind in the pace of life but I am still walking. And this is all that matters to me right now.
Notes to Myself, Hugh Prather
“It’s enough that I matter today. Tomorrow does not exist, and neither do I.”
Yes, I have loved and lost in this life! Yes, I have made friends and given my heart and soul to them. And I have no qualms about it. No complaints. Because I have also achieved something while doing all these things. Feeling all these things. And I am here today because of all these things. If loving someone or befriending someone makes you a loser in life, then I am happy being a loser.
If I have to make this choice again in life, if I have to choose between time or love and friendship I’ll choose LIFE again. This is just my way of living life and I am never going to change it. This is my pact with life. Come what may. I’ll LIVE.
