The truth is that future is uncertain. We don’t know what will happen in the future. Many people had many desires to fulfill and many plans to execute before Coronavirus hit us. But in today’s day and age, the topmost priority is to stay alive and look after our family.
I feel that planning is a futile effort as we can’t see what is going to happen in the future. I can say with utmost honesty that all my plans have not been executed as i had envisioned them.
I smile at those people who ask questions like ‘so, where do you see yourself 5 years down the line?’ To envision what we will be doing 5 years is an idiot’s job. Many people who were young, fit and healthy and who died of covid-19, don’t you think they had plans? At this analogy, i remember what my father always say ‘Saman sau baras ka aur pal ki khabar nahi’ which means that we have so many plans and stuff so as to live for 100 years but we don’t know about that one second in the future at which Kaal will come and stand before us.
Even after knowing all this, we keep on planning but those plans become obsolete as soon as the conditions and situations change, i mean the perceived future change. So, at last i just want to say that the future is unpredictable.
