Death..Something to Ponder
(Dedicated to all the Farmers, Police,Doctors, Celebrities who lost their life this year in what people are calling the worst year ever but I feel it is for us to realise the truth of life)
Kobe Bryant, Irrfan Khan and many more
who lost their life this year
Heartfelt, Prayers to their souls !!
But I Ponder
They may be famous
As I am saddened by the losses
I ponder upon something
That, they are no different from us
We all have the same body meant to die one day
The world mourns the passing away of celebrities
But what about the people who leave every day
Are they not famous in their own ways ?
What about the farmers who lose their lives cultivating food for us ?
And what about the sadhus who were lynched ?
What about the sanitation workers and CRPF and Police
Working day and night to make some people famous
Why does not anyone mourn their death?
But from these loses ,
are we learning our lessons?
In a materialistic world today..
Atleast the way 2020 is going
Are they not enough examples to teach us,
Teach us that death is ultimate
No one can avoid it
And our life's are meant to
Prepare for that moment of death
By learning to remember the lord always
For death is inevitable
And we have to remember not only the famous ones
But that even us ,
Every single one of us will leave this body one day.
And all prayers to every such one of us
(no matter their status in life)
Who are leaving our bodies this year
In vicious times of Corona
