Tomorrow - Today - Yesterday

I believe (a personal one!) the way one laughs changes over time. And that the change is proportional to the experiences of life.

Last Sunday one of my uncles visited me. Though I was meeting him after a long time but he didn’t seem to have changed at all. My uncle always laughed like a child; without any inhibitions and straight from his heart. The surprise? He still laughs like that. If I tell you about his life then your definition of ‘bad luck’ would certainly be pushed. But I won’t do that as it will dilute the intention of this particular post.

All I want to share is what he told me when I asked him how he still manages to smile in his life-is-beautiful manner. This is what he said, “Even if Tomorrow is the most gorgeous woman on earth I don’t fantasize about her. If Today is the girl I love the most but I know I can’t get her I still live it to the full and not stop mid-way. And if Yesterday is the first crush of my life I, at best, remember her but never miss her.”

God bless him!

am, ok, hey again.
I read your second book, as usual in like 3 hours or something.
to be frank, i didn't like it initially anf i planned to toss it over after 40 pages, but then i simply couldn't stop. it's something about the way you write, portray all the feelings and emotions, that just doesn't permit the reader to leave.

I can't say it has the same affect that A Thing Beyond Forever had, but still, I know, this is going to be one of those books, i can read again and again.

ur uncle's words are simply wonderfull... a pereson enlightened with the true knowledge of the world through several phases in life can only come up wid such thought... and i genuinely believe dat u get the fuel for tomorrow from the good moments of today and learn the tactics to handle a mess from ur bad ones... ur uncle's is also a creative mind just like u...! is it genetical?? lol... :D

n B c said...

The 'uncle' part is a figment of my imagination :P

jui said...

hmm i understood dat... i truely respect dat figment of ur imagination so i respect dis uncle of ur's whereever he is... :)

Arpita said...

Ur books also suggested something like the tommorrow -today-yesterday,all connected to each other......it will find you even if u dont want it to find ...But this small concept is awesome to define the concept of the connection between all three.........
