Time and Friends

There is something in the vast universe that eclipses all the advancement mankind has ever made or possibly can think of, making him a puny creature circumvented by the Kingdom of Time. Right from Aristotle to Galileo, Copernicus to Stephan Hawkins, there have been many theories proposed and proven, but their mentors have diminished somewhere in deep trenches of time. None of them have been able to stand against the ruler of this vast unbounded territory. Many have diminished; many are yet to make their mark in the pages of history. Let time judge for itself. Just the other day I reached home at my usual midnight hour and got glued to the PC after finishing off with my dinner. I opened the group photographs of my junior and primary school posted on the board by a friend. It spontaneously brought a vibrant smile across my face. It transported me to a vivid image of my dreams about this embryonic world where am with my contemporaries having a feast of my life, relishing every moment, oblivious to the surroundings. A world nurtured with innocence, a world of peace and brotherhood, a world free from tribulations. But I was soon pulled back to veracity by a phone call. Once done with the conversation I immediately shifted my attention to the picture on the desktop. I then realized how our paths diverged once we passed out of school. Was it destiny that had brought all of us together? Was there some purpose behind each of us being together for a phase in our lives? It’s been ages since I met all those who stand alongside in the picture. We all are striving to pursue and reach the goals set by us and somewhere in this process have lost the touch, though at the back of our minds we still have vague memories of yesteryears. It feels good that technology has gifted us means to bridge this gap and enable us to stay together in this walk of life, to hold each others hands and sail through this journey of time which we began from a common point. I am a firm believer in Destiny. Though it’s a maxim that one shapes his/her own destiny, but there is definitely a driving force which is responsible for certain actions that we unintentionally perform.
