In a day, there are certain moments when you feel, “WOW!!! Everything is going my way” and then just about one small incident or word that alters your mood drastically. A sudden change in circumstances that sometimes bring reality crashing down onto you.
I wish I was as brave as Duke Senior, who says,
“Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life exempt from public haunt
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones and good in every thing.
I would not change it.”
–Act 2, Scene I- As you like it, William Shakespeare.
But then I try to sing it off by…
“Kabhi zindagi lage bhaari,
kabhi lagti halki-phulki.
Iske rang haske dekhe,
apnaa le khushi… har pal ki.”
