I Had the Chance to Live Twice
Life is a journey of no return. There’s nothing like ‘let me try both paths’. The path you choose is what you must follow until the end. You have got to live once so live it well. It was then that I realized I nearly lost my life due to carelessness. And that’s probably why I then chose to live my life well.

Love on Time!
It is quite sad that we do not know what we have until we lose it. It is funny how a man suffers all his life with no help from family or friends. But his burial is a pricey ceremony of friends and enemies, giving a pep talk of his life on earth. What good is it now? I observe that the best deeds of a man are recited at his burial ceremony. Also, that much love is shown to a corpse or a man on his deathbed.
Tell me, what harm can this do? What harm can love do?
