ADD LIFE TO YOUR YEARS…

This is something most of us have heard about, but do we reflect over seriously? If we did we would be rewarded with wholesome satisfaction. By seriously, I meant giving a serious thought towards spending our time in a more meaningful way. True, we do think such thoughts sometimes, but they tend to melt away, due to lack of little or no effort. There is no age to do good work, rather we should make time to avail opportunities, we should extend ourselves by contributing that little bit, which could make someone ‘s life a lot better and brighter. There are those, like me, who have retired from active life, who actually can do more, as we have lesser responsibilities and more time on our hands. At times there can be health related handicaps, but with one step of determination, we could convert those into reaching out to those who need us more. If we are determined to make a difference, we can find ways and means of extending a helping hand without any major exertion. If you enjoy reading, bring in the wonder and joy of books to a bunch of young children; if you are good at cooking, teach five of your favorite recipes to children who could tomorrow earn a livelihood from this running a roadside eatery; needlework is a dying art today, help revive it by passing on your skills to some vulnerable girls who could avoid domestic violence by bringing in that extra income; just by sitting and being a genuine listener ease the burden of abused children….. I would appeal to all those men and women, young and old, please do show the courage of converting your good thoughts into little deeds of greatness. MEENA SAHNEY
