What is LIFE?

You remember 3 Idiots? In a scene A student was asked a question – ‘What is a machine ? ‘ And he answers practically and in a more simple way than a bookish definition. And there was this other student who gives the exact book definition.

Similarly is LIFE. There is N interpretation and definition about life. But no one can force *YOU* to accept any definition.There may be one universally accepted definition but you can always counter interpret that. Similarly is life. I am not saying what Deepak Chopra or some big heads tell is wrong. It is just their ‘POINT OF VIEW’. What matters is the way you treat your life! Practically.

Do I sound like a douchebag AH ? Stop reading. Your interpretation of me is what it is. Leave this post and go live a life. πŸ™‚

Disclaimer : This Post has nothing to do with the Meaning of LIFE though the heads-up given above makes you smell that πŸ™‚

Here is MY interpretation of Life and Priorities. Read it under your own risk.
What I mean is, this is entirely based on my LIFE, and any resemblence to your life is purely coincidental.

(Note: It’s my ‘LIFE’ and your’s is ‘life’. It just means I care about my LIFE much more than your’s.)

Age 0- 5 : You have no idea what is happening. Every one lifts you,kisses you, hugs you and some kids are KWEL enough to go to a stranger and some kids don’t. What is LIFE in this age ? Absolutely no idea. ! And priorities ? – Would be Mom’s hug, Dad’s love, Grandmom’s story telling etc.

Age 6- 15 – OK, grown up KID. Remember those days where you grow up all of a sudden, look tall, have pimples all over your face. ?

LIFE in this age is, what your parents, teachers (Miss you MISS πŸ™‚ ) have told you. ‘Maga, Doddavanaagi Dodd Engineer aagbeku, ETC ETC !’ . You are too young to interpret what the hell is a Engineer or Doctor’s job (may be you have some idea. But definitely you aren’t sure of how difficult it is ! ).

What influences you is your friend, who’s dad came from Sharjah and got him a FUNKY water bottle/bag/ Geometry Box. It’s just that you FEEL ‘Wish I had that !’. But your inner you would know you won’t get that.But still. !!

You make new friends, speak , quarrel get into some group of ‘BEST FRIENDS’ concept.
May be at this age I used to spend very less! May be I wasn’t earning you know. Or may be that’s the way I thought my life is ! *Stop this ‘May be’ thing dude. Move ahead. *

Age 15- 21 : Gahaha. I love this ! OH MY GOD WHAT A CHICK!! College days. You try to act smart. You want to be famous. You think a GETOUT from the classroom was an ACHIEVEMENT. You like being praised. You live a bachelor’s life. You live for yourself. (There are lot of things here to include, but simply thought to cutshort.)

You try your hands on cigarette just to show off and want to know what Beer is all about. Again, not much to spend as you don’t earn. You think , once I start earning I can spend like crazy. !

Age 22- 28 : Machan,You have a job! You start earning. And yeah lot of spendings. That fancy credit cards interests you ! You spend a lot , You buy unnecessary tshirts, clothings, shoes, gadgets, and what not.You spend on girls. (<– Not applied to Ranjith yermal. He doesn't spend on girls. And FYI, he doesnt spend on guys too. )

But haha, You miss those golden moments of college life. And again, you are your TOP priority! You are in this mid 20 crisis. You think about yourself, your future. You think of making some money. You want to be rich.

Age 28-31 – Pepere dum dum. Haha, You get engaged. The priority changes from you to your ‘WOULD BE’. You talk only about him/her. You meet your friends you talk about him/her. SMS, chat , phone calls, gifts, and what not. Dream about her, meet, date, praise etc etc !!

Once you are married, phone calls reduced, rarely any smses. Priority still remains your wife! She is what you speak about in your social circle. Upload your wedding pics, waiting for people’s reaction and what not.

Age 31+ – Wow, You have a kid. The priority is now your kid. . You speak about your kid. Your kid is what will be the centre of attraction amongst your social circle. You spend on him/her, take pictures, upload his/her pictures on fb and wait for people’s reaction. You feel happy when you see other parents parenting their kids and you speak ONLY about KIDS πŸ˜‰ .

Then the kids grow up, you think about its future, schooling and you start saving. You do whatever you can for his/her future. And Me thinks, 90% of the people at-least in India live and earn only for their kids wellbeing. Your son/daughter is TOP priority.

Whatever it is, I feel , it’s between 18-28 is where you live with you being ypur TOP priority and is the best part of your life. I mean my LIFE!

For kids reading this post : You are too young to read this.

For bachelors between 18- 30 : Guys, ENJOY. This is the best part of your life.

For engaged/ just married couples : Hey look, your would be/husband/wife just called. GO JIYO.

For the kids’ Mommy/Daddy : Do some work and earn some penny for your kids future instead of reading this post. πŸ˜€

    I indeed agree wid ur college days point of view… So lovely days – ready for anythin, except studies – tryin to be a macho!!!.. In ma case, i was ever ready to spend money lavishly as der wer always frens to borrow money from wen it was tight… nd ppl do think i’ll spend wen i earn!!! Bt d irony is dat ppl bcum stingy after dey earn money… I hav seen it!!! Store money to spend at d most unlikely time.. Bt its deir perception of life.. maybe!!!! In d way, i see LIFE.. “Live for d moment, be happy nd make others happy, kal ho na ho”.. lol… πŸ™‚
