Life Is Unpredictable

At times, life seems to be just so simple and sometimes the face of life is very complicated. And this is the reason for life being so capricious. One struggles for achieving a lot of things in life, may it be in one’s personal life or professional well-being.

The whole of our life is just not enough to understand its real denotation, and on a contrary, sometimes just a single moment is more than enough to sense the essence of the whole life. And this depends on the company of the people we live in. I am sure that 27 years are not enough to give any bottom-line proclamation about life. But I have experienced a lot of things in the journey of my life till date. These experiences have taught me many crucial chapters of life. From a pool of all these experiences, I can articulate that life is unpredictable.


Capriciousness is not observed much in one’s professional life. Most of the things going on in a planned chronological order. But yes! In life, as such, unpredictability is very universal. Does our life flow-on in an expected way? Do we have any estimation of what is going to be the next moment in our life? The answer to all these questions is – “NO”.

We grow up with lots of dreams. At some segment, we may see them flourishing and at some phase of life, they may be crashed down. Most of the people get disillusioned by crashing down of their dreams. But is it the end of life? No! It is just an experience that we are privileged to have for constructing a better tomorrow. We may come across a phase in our life where we see the doors closing down and think that our life is devastated. But suddenly a spark comes across at an unexpected time and life is transformed overnight. We then realize opening up of a door of happiness for us. And this is the moment we realize that “Life is unpredictable”.

Do you think there is anything called a “Good Life” or a “Bad Life”? I don’t think so. According to me, there are just good and bad experiences. Optimistic experiences make us confident, and pessimistic ones make us realize our mistakes and prepare us for a perfect future. So we should never complain about the bad times in life because they are just the boosters to make a perfect life. And we never know when the unpredictable character of life may turn our bad time inside-out and gift us with all the happiness we always waited for.

Absolute Reunion

“Family”.… a word we all have heard. And most of us are blessed to have the privilege to live our life with the family. All the problems can be fought off when we have the support of our family. Family helps us stay calm, confident and strong during the tough times of life; it is also the hub of happiness, and we always cherish our good moments with them. They are the people we want to go to during all our good and the bad times.


With the advancement and progression in our professional world, the physical distance is increasing between the family members. In the present scenario, we are unable to stay with our parents and siblings, which was not the case in the early world.

A Few Drops From A Mighty Ocean

One fine day I was staring at the cloud which was hiding the sun. Slowly the cloud was moving and some silver rays were shining. Gradually the silver rays got converted into the golden rays and the sun was again shining brightly. This is the situation very similar to our life. The seed of our life starts germinating when we come on this earth with all good things around. Then as we grow up the dark clouds of problems, worries and obstacles hurdle our way. But as we start working on them with confidence and faith, these clouds move a bit and we can see the silver rays of hope. We still work hard and finally, we can see the golden rays of success and happiness, and we again shine with all our glow and radiance like a bright sun.

The Confident Injured Sparrow

After completing a lecture on Glaucoma, while sitting at my desk in the college I noticed a sparrow. It came and sat on one of the leaves of a coconut tree just in front of my window. It was trying hard to fly. Unfortunately, its trials were not successful. I was observing this for 10-12 minutes and was wondering why it was not able to fly. I then went near the window and saw that it was having some injury and was bleeding. I restricted myself to approach the sparrow as I never wanted to scare it away. All that I was able to do was to observe. Nothing else came to my mind. After a few minutes, with its great efforts, the sparrow successfully flew away with all the freedom!
