My experiment with programming language using the old style of coding skills proves to be futile. Here I was trying to upload new posts on the blog and ended with erratic loading issue. This taught me to keep up to date with the basic knowledge of the font settings. In the process changed my passwords twice to somehow make it work, but finally got it through.

work-life balance — • Being Mortal by Atul Gawande • “Our ultimate...

Is this book about philosophical tidbits presented by the doctor in relation with mortality? The answer isn’t feasible for all except that it fits into the spectrum of palliative and geriatric care in today’s world. Atul’s description of assisted living communities is provocative and informative. I sincerely resonate some of the elderly tantrums, sufferings and piercing to imagine their stands. When being a doctor himself would find hardships on the care of the elderly then nothing is asserted for the common people. This statement from the book is mesmerizing – “As our time winds down, we all seek comfort in simple pleasures-companionship, everyday routines, the taste of good food, the warmth of sunlight on our faces. We become less interested in the rewards of achieving and accumulating and more interested in the rewards of simple being. And we have a deep need to identify purposes outside ourselves that make living feel meaningful and worthwhile.” Hope it steer the same way to all.

I cherish those moments that passed like a smug, never expected this to be the last chance. Had I been told in advance about our destiny, would have tried hard not to leave you aside. You are the very reason for my cognitive transference and spiritual transcendence, yet you remain far away to reciprocate my true feelings. Your disciplinary actions, determined values and thrive to keep updated with the current trends are some of the eye openers to me. Is it possible to erase the first meeting I had at the airport, the place with so many chaos and feeling like a fresh off the boat. There you were smiling to greet me and my loneliness tagged your way till parking lot. What happened next was a true history bonded to my destiny, the smell of the new country and its county are unique to its landscape. More grasping is the house where everything seems to be like a refreshing image in my eyes. The entire place is filled with positive vibes that cannot be expressed in words, it has to be experienced by self. May sound lunatic or spooky for some of the passers, but more you open with possibilities the better one may treasure it. One section of the living room is surrounded with book racks that is very rare to find. To be honest, it is this spot that introduced me to books and not to forget the person behind who deserves the most praise.

He is none other than my great uncle, who is 87 years old with sharp memory and a great erudite. He is a doctor by profession and used to keep himself busy all the time by reading books, teaching spiritual text and attending his chores. He never feels exhausted from learning new things in life, such as languages or scriptural studies. The moment he arrives from work, I would sit beside to listen to his day’s experiences. He is a highly independent individual with so much knowledge to inculcate. He never lies, no matter what the situation demands. This is what admires me the most and was dreaming to be his shadow forever, but my fate had other plans. I had to return back to my home country and residing here ever since. Nevertheless, his physical presence may not be here, but all his values are poured on me and hope to meet him again in near future. Well, this article is a dedication to him as a token of love.
