Today is my Dad’s birthday. If he was alive, he would have been 84 today. Today is Sindhu’s birthday as well. Any way birthdays are for celebrations. On one side, you long for the presence of the deceased to be able to communicate with them, and to shower your love and affection (which you might have forgotten to express to the fullest) when they were alive and and on the other hand you still dont spend enough time with the loved ones….to regret later.
Recently I saw an interview of the famous Malayalam actor Srinivasan on the television. He was visiting his old school and one of the very young students asked for an advise. And it was this ‘Dont repeat the same mistake twice. From every mistake one should learn’.
I think it is worth while to slow down a bit, take stock and reprioritize the priorities.
