Take Away

kya leke aaye the kya leke jayenge,

(what did you bring when you came in this world and what will you take away),

With many youngsters thinking of jumping into this world of startups,

or

people worrying about taking that all important first step in life,

wondering about the risks involved,

the one and only take away that one might want to focus on is,

there isn’t any take aways from this world,

only certain contributions to be made in the lifetimes we have,

how we choose to spend this time is of relevance,

for there is only this much time we have,

of which we might have already spent quite a bit,

if you think that you will certainly die one day,

guess it’s high time we stop worrying about going broke with ideas,

and

start acting upon whatever we would want to do in this lifetime.

Ye Duniya!

You might have heard this beautiful song,

In these current times that we all live in,

this song seems to find a chord,

I see kids wearing masks while playing sports,

youngsters running around with their masks on,

Courtesy the virus,

We all have pulse meters in our houses,

As a fact,

The rate goes up once we wear the masks,

I wonder,

the kind of effect it might have while playing sports or simply running,

the kind of effect the strings of these masks might have on our ears,

the kind of effect it might have if we wear it for a longer period of time,

I wonder whether it’s worth it,

the lives we all seem to be living,

not discounting the fact that precautions need to be taken,

but doesn’t any form of extreme approach needs a rethink,

a think to ponder over?

Game Set Match!

I wonder what’s next!

With Djokovic winning his 21st title,

and

not being allowed to play in the US open,

a different debate altogether revolving around vaccination,

and

with the likes of Nadal injured and Federer planning to retire,

For the people of my generation and tennis lovers in general,

Is there something to look forward to?

A player whom we can look forward to watching,

Not many seem to be coming up the ranks,

few exceptions being Sinner, Fritz;

With the kind of standards and benchmark set by the Big 3,

Would be hard to create something,

which comes close to recreating the Golden Era!

Wonder,

whether the men’s game will have a similar fate as the women’s?

whether it’s game set match for the very game!

Prepared?

Preparation can be of various kinds,

preparing for

Exams,

Marriage,

Interviews etc. etc.

But one preparation that most of us choose to ignore,

or

Are ignorant of,

Is the preparation for death,

As pessimistic as it might sound,

When the time comes,

most of us go in a state of shock,

knowing all through that the day would arrive,

when we will choose to take a leap of faith in a new arena altogether,

If we were just to remind ourselves

and

be cognizant of the only truth there is,

Guess life would become much more enjoyable and appreciable,

than what it is today!

The only question being,

Are we preparing ourselves for the eventuality?
