There is a fantastic couplet by Dr. Rahat Indori,
Dhundhte-dhundhte ek umr guzaari jiskoYou can watch the entire ghazal here
Wo agar saamne aa jaye to paagal ho jaaun
The lines talk about searching one’s ladylove for ages and going crazy at a mere sight of her.
But the point here is something else. We are all busy. Possibly going at our full speeds. Possibly using our full potential. Hustling day in and day out. Chasing dreams and achieving goals.
Yogi Berra is quoted as saying,
If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.
But how well do we know the place we want to wind up at? What will happen when we get there? Will it be worth it? Do we have the big picture?
