A person who wishes to be an Engineer in the childhood, did not get chance to study Engineering instead studied Physics – became a Teacher; next that person became a writer and then studied Management became a Manager and then became an Entrepreneur. Is there any connection between Physics- English- Management?
A person’s destiny is a mystery. Understanding events in our life and the connection among the events is much more interesting. Sometimes we understand and sometimes we do not understand the connection. This subject is beyond our scope of understanding.
Am sure there might be times in our life when we wonder “What the hell is happening with my life? Where did I start my journey and where am I heading to? How is this present experience in life going to help me in my future? “
Sometimes we even wonder, if everything happens as per our destiny then what is our role in our own life. What is the point in having goals, dreams; if our destiny is planned by God then what is the point in we trying to plan our life and struggling to achieve those plans?
Most of the times, we wonder what is in store for us in this life? What is life going to give us?
Driving the point home, our life is a cocktail of two worlds…world of our desire and the world of our fate. We need to play our role efficiently and leave the rest to fate or destiny or whatever. What really matters is what is our genuine contribution to our Life? We must not waste our time by pondering over the thought….what has life given me or what is life going to me ?
Here are some interesting thoughts of Mr. Bagchi on Life as discussed by him in the chapter “The Future of Desire and The Future of Fate” of the book “Go Kiss the World”.
Someone once said, most men take more out of life than they give to it. A few give more to life than they take out of it. The world runs because of such men.
J.D Bernal wrote in his book “There are two futures, the future of desire and the future of fate, and man’s reason has never learnt to separate them.”
What similarities exist between the days that I spent at the secretariat and those that I live in MindTree today? How does the work there resemble my work here? Or for that matter, does the world in which I live and work at this stage of my career even remotely resemble the sights, sounds and smells of Kishen Gunj, off Bara Hindu Rao, Delhi,1977?
Our lives are like rivers – the source seldom reveals the confluence. Does a river fret over the long journey and about its end just as it is about to spurt? It simply does not do that, caring instead to flow, to begin its journey, and on its way builds a beneficial relationship with anyone who comes in contact with her.
Do check this wonderful song from the Tamil Film Rhythm . Here the writer compares the flow of a River to Life of a Woman
