The Sunset point

He is past his prime…” I heard them saying about him.    


And they were not talking about some cricketer. They were talking about a man whose journey I have followed closely over the years, right through his pretty high ‘ups’ and equally low ‘downs’. He came…he saw…he conquered. And then one day, he threw caution to the wind, to only be hit by a strong storm…falling steeply from dizzy heights…to find himself in a state they called “way past his prime”.

You know what…

One day they will say this about me… about you. And the worst part is that probably they will be right. On that day, don’t sulk or fume. Close your eyes, and then later go for a walk, and introspect. If you think what they say has merit then ‘take a break’ or ‘revive’ or ‘reinvent’ or ‘reposition’ or ‘find where you can be of value even with your averageness’.

And if nothing works then walk away into the woods with grace


…to find new meanings and purposes.
