I was so busy that I missed life!

Modern life ensures a lot of comfort and wealth. However, it also makes heavy demands on what is our single most precious belonging, time. The fact that life is made of time can often get ignored in the rush of life, and by the time we come to realise that time is the only commodity that we cannot buy, beg, borrow or steal, it might be too late. Being too busy in life actually runs the risk of missing it altogether.

In the modern world, there is so much to do, so much to achieve that only someone who has is an absolute failure or not well can be idle. Most of us are always busy in something or the other. Often there are so many challenges to meet that merely deciding which ones you should take up can become a matter of stress! The greatest iron, however, is that efforts to bring a semblance of balance and harmony in this madly busy life requires efforts that can sometime lead to even more stress and make the life even worse!
