Before you see where he's headed, take a look at where he is coming from
Quote for the day
Life is like a boxing ring. Defeat is not final when you fall down,
it's final when you refuse to get up
Shedding light on stories that make them heroes in our books
Pilgrim's Progress... ... ....
There are 40 Samskaras in a person's life journey. The Naimittika Samskaras performed by the house holder start with conception and ends with end of a life journey. Of these, a few Samskaras are for efflux of time.
No one celebrates just efflux of time. Age related ceremonies like 60, 70, 80 years only ring in the need to redouble our efforts to reach our goals of life. I have crossed the first stage of geriatry.
The curse of all our vaulted progress is we are deluded by a process of self-hypnosis to complain bitterly that destiny is against us and that we do not get what is our due. I consider myself fortunate that I have enlisted in this life journey till now people better than myself. To those captured in the roving lens and countless others who are photographed in my memory, this is acknowledgment of their support and their dynamic influence on me. The religion we inherit, the path we follow and the stage of life we pursue, are not of vital importance. Our actions should express itself in universal love and unselfish service.
