April 29th, 2020, I like to work late nights which means I woke up around noon. Open my Instagram feed and found that one of my favorite Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan passed away. I've always been fond of his work, It was quite a shock for me.
Me being a filmaholic person, have a kinda attachment with few actors. When they speak, It feels as if it just meant for me. Same goes for Sir Amitabh Bachchan When I need someone to hold my hand, I barely ask for anyone, go straight to poems of Shri Hariwansh Rai Ji recited by Amitabh, Just like a perfect combination, as If a missing piece is regained. Lots of inspirations out there.
You see, the point is, we're with the people we love, we must cherish every moment with them, the time has never stopped for anyone, we're aging with time, we may have already lost some people we love. I am 23 years old now and I have been through various moments and situations. Everything feels like a blink of an eye! I too have felt regrets. You know what regret is, the unspent love. We must never hold our love for people. Let it fill colors in their life and it's gonna fill back ours.
I often miss my grandma, she was just like the one from "The Portrait of a Lady by Khushwant Singh". She could make laugh and always felt loved being around her.
I remember she couldn't recite a few words... I'd ask her to say it loud 'NAMKEEN' or 'KAILASH' and she would end up saying "Lankeen or Qu-lash" every time and I'd laugh hard. Sparrows loved her very much, I witnessed it with my own eyes when one day she was gone all those sparrows gathered around her to pay their tribute. I was left with memories and moments to be cherished and lived with. I wish I could have spent more time with her but now I'd often sit with my grandfather and ask him "Did you see Gandhi Ji when you were young. or How was his life!" and I often make him laugh.
Nothing stays the same, we are but we will not be there always, whatever the time we're left with. Live it before its too late. Live it with people you love. Live it for the people you care about. Most importantly, Live it for yourself. Let your soul feel the blue hue of the sky.
One day, Everything will feel Like a blink of an Eye! So seize your moments.
Someday soon, I will tell you a story... 'The Moon is beautiful'.
