Chasing Time

It makes me wonder that I have now come afar in life and yet I still do have dissatisfaction and reservations over some things that have been done. I wish to undo it if I ever have the opportunity to go back in time. Time is what is not on my side. Folks, do you have time? Honestly, ask that critically to yourself. Finding time!

Where is the time to make all endeavors possible? Some years ago, I read this in a popular magazine, “We have time to do all the nothing we want”. If we revisit the story of Genghis Khan, at his death bed he summoned his court and asked missionaries to be sent around the Mongol empire to bring in the person who can extend his time on earth. He wanted time.

Physicists around the world still wonder on the aspects of time and space and there is one question that they are trying to answer, “What is time?” Is it a space where imagination takes precedence over reality? From the ‘Big bang’ until this day, who has known this illusive concept of time? Ask the western world about how short is time? They are busy and they don’t have time for anything. If a train arrives late by 30 seconds, the days schedule for the entire commuters gets delayed by 30 seconds. 

According to the Hindu theory of creation, time (Sanskrit 'kal') is a manifestation of God. Creation begins when God makes his energies active and ends when he withdraws all his energies into a state of inactivity. God is timeless, for time is relative and ceases to exist in the Absolute. The past, the present and the future coexist in him simultaneously.
Nobody has enough time, although some may opine superficially that I manage time. It is imperative that managing time is and will remain as elusive as time itself. Individual differs with time and in managing time. Let us learn from the following wisdom from the book "Lord of the rings".

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, the Fellowship of the Ring


  1. hmmm...something to think about...on the other hand, not to waste time thinking but to just do what we have to do...

    1. That's what si...the concept itself is so abstract

  2. Very Abstract.
    Physicists may someday explain it but they can never control it, so live it when you have it.

  3. Thanks Passu I will take that. Perhaps I would like to witness the moment when its explained, far fetched may be.

  4. i suppose we need to take refuge in religion and philosophy, even science, otherwise existence will make no sense

  5. the story about the genghis kahn is nice,,,:)
