The uncertainty

Did you ever wonder what next could bring you? Oh yes! we are already preoccupied by our own thoughts. Mundane thoughts most of the time. Just some hours ago, I watched Hard-talk on BBC. Then, I realised anything good or bad can happen anytime, and change the entire course of life. Stephen Sakur's interview with Nicklinson family made me dumfounded. The fact is, it reminded me of many similar incidences I have seen, heard and experienced in many similar ways.

Life is uncertain. I heard this many times; you must have heard it too. But who cares?. Nobody bothers to examine it until one succumbs to the fact. The point is: we live as if we live forever. We want to be powerful over other; we crave for wealth;we just think of our own happiness.But this is very true. Isn't it?. Oh! I am not preaching. I live by these very principles too. Ehhh..do I sound hypocritical?. Let it be.  Or am I being nihilistic?. No, I am one optimist being; I have one big goal.

My total sympathy and empathy to all those who have undergone uncertainty of life, negatively, so to say. I have seen number of happy families breaking; I have seen handsomeness and beauty wadding (become disabled) after accidents and other circumstances. Still unconvinced? Just think of some victims who survived bomb explosions: limbless. And I hear and see how once powerful men (most of them leaders) falling. On the contrary, I have also seen how beggars can turn into millionaires; ordinary into celebrities; submissive into influencing. Yes! when I hear "Life is uncertain", I try to understand it as a "change" this way-this is it.

Nicklinson family tragedy is one such example.Today, Tony Nicklinson desperately wants to end his life. Since after massive stroke in 2005, he has been paralysed. This is really touching. It is very touching to see once very smart husband turned into nothing more than "locked-in" man. And I have a similar story to tell: A few months ago (not even three months now, it was in mid-July), my cousin narrowly escaped death because of car accident. Just a day before his accident, we were together. See how things can be uncertain sometimes. When I saw him lying on hospital bed, hapless during first few days, I couldn't stop worrying: what if he becomes blind forever; what if he can't walk; what if .... These frequent occurrences made me comprehend a little about "uncertainty of life".  But thank god, he is normal now. And there are yet more tragedies and more glories alike.

Well, what could be the solution to this problem of uncertainty then? Okay. One might not be able to stop uncertainty abruptly but the one thing we could do can be, take measures to prevent it from occurring. This is no total panacea again. Sometime, Something bizarre or weird can happen out of the blue however you try to prevent it. You never know when. But, if rich, powerful, ordinary and all know that power, wealth, fame or anything  are just very "relative", "transferable" or "vanish-able" and live by these concepts of knowledge, there should not be selfishness, dominance or hatred amongst kinds of population. This may seem totally hypothetical but it is doable.

  2. Thank You Langa. I am really moved by the BBC's Hard-talk "Fighting to redefine 'mercy killings':Should a paralysed person have the right to die? ". You might read it online as well on http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/hardtalk/9577291.stm
