Precious Moments......

Tic toc Tic Toc Tic Toc.....time ticks on and on......, moments slip away.

We do not know what the future holds for us or what would happen the very next second but we hold on to the moments that had happened in the past, some good that’s etched deep in our hearts, some bad that haunts us when we least expect it.

Sometimes we do not want the time to pass by but sometimes you just hope it would run a little faster. There are moments that you wished never happened and of course there are moments you wished never ended.

How does one feel a moment is precious? Well.....I guess that depends from person to person. The kids for instance will cherish a trip to the park. Lovers would love the moments they are together. The list is endless.

In my life, like any other, there has been a lot of moments, precious momentssss..........

Innumerable moments during my schooling and college days. (Wish I could turn back the clock)
Moment I met her.
Moment I tied the nuptial knot with my love.
Moment when Ashwin & Aditya came into our lives.
Moment I got my very first offer letter.
and above all else, the innumerable moments with my entire family will always have a very special place in my heart.

For all the moments that we cherish, it’s always important to note that it is YOU that makes the passing MOMENTS, wherever or whenever or with whomsoever PRECIOUS.

Let’s make our lives PRECIOUS!

How many of you?????

There are a lot of common things we humans exhibit during our day to day activities, be it from doing our daily chores to going to a party or a movie, being with friends or having fun at the amusement part. Be warned it is not restricted to any region or community but the global race. It sounds a bit ironic but you will know why.......

How many of you scribble on a notepad or fiddle with an object while on the phone with someone (especially the land phone)?

How many of you are curious to gaze towards the same direction where others unknown to you are looking while you are walking down the street and finally end up looking right there?

How many of you get frustrated when there is a road block on the shortest route you chose thinking the regular route would be worse?

How many of you make hand gestures unintentionally during a conversation?

How many of you drive slowly when you see a police car?

How many of you have bought things in a supermarket under sale when you wouldn't have if there wasn't one?

How many of you have felt that always the queue next to you moves quicker than yours?

How many of you choose to sit on an empty seat rather than next to a stranger in a bus or a train?

How many of you start reading the newspaper from the back?

How many of you have felt lost or disconnected (so they say) when you had forgotten to take your mobile? This is a modern human behavior :-)

I'm pretty sure many would agree with my observations. Look around you and there will be more such interesting facts about human behavior irrespective of where we come from or the culture we follow.

Now you know why..... :-)
