Life..

A forwarded mail i received and thought to share with you all. After reading this...the way i now look at life has really changed. Hope it changes your too :)!!




Speech by Chetan Bhagat in Symbiosis Institute of Management:

Life is one of those races in nursery school where you have to run with a marble in a spoon kept in your mouth. If the marble falls, there is no point coming first. Same with life, where health and relationships are the marble. Your striving is only worth it if there is harmony in your life. Else, you may achieve the success, but this spark, this feeling of being excited and alive, will start to die.
One thing about nurturing the spark - don't take life seriously. Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here. We are like a pre-paid card with limited validity. If we are lucky, we may last another 50 years. And 50 years is just 2,500 weekends. Do we really need to get so worked up?
It's ok, bunk a few classes, goof up a few interviews, take leave from work, fall in love. We are people, not programmed devices. :)
"Don't be serious, be sincere.”!!!

First of all, Congrats for the award :)

Now coming to the post, while reading I was questionnning myself again and again is it so? Is life so simple? I would say I am not completely convinced, but I would have wanted me to be convinced :) And this is the eternal truth "Life is not to be taken seriously, as we are really temporary here"

Chetan Bhagat is a wonderful writer. Many may not agree but I don't think any Indian writer has connected with the youth as much as he has. Wonderful Posty. Thanks for sharing it with us.:)

Congratulations on the award. I agree life should not be taken seriously. I also live by that rule. I never wear a watch. I never carry a brief case to work. I never bring work home.
