Reasons We Live For

Beauty of nature stops alluring him, money becomes useless to him, pleasures of every sort feel like a curse to him, do you know why? Because he has only few days to live, he is suffering from a rare disease, he doesn’t want to wait to suffer more, he wants to die right now.


But wait, something stops him , he is hit by a magical charm . He can see those brown eyes , that shined like pebbles touched by divine hands. Those eyes chasing the flight of a bird who wants to fly high, those eyes chasing dream and is now watching at him. His little child, his life that will continue to thrive even after his death.


And so he has to live for his kid, his beloved, his people who love him, who depend on him , who are his only solace in his world of sufferings, the reasons he should live for. He has to prepare them , giving them wings ,so that when his time will come they would be ready to live without him .


Life continues to wander in confusion until sufferings come and the reasons become clear.


All the material things which we achieve or aspire to achieve give nothing but momentary joy that vanishes as soon as we face the real test of life, sufferings, failures, losses.

    True Piyush, and yet we slog all our lives chasing material wealth. Ironic isn’t it?
