Are we doing enough for being competitive to keep up with the changing world? Every time we learn a new skill, take another class, join another certification, travel another thousand miles in a week withing our own city; we are losing the joy that a cup of tea offers in the balcony. To earn another 100 bucks, we are missing the pleasure of sitting with family at post-Asar tea time. Billboards entertain us and not even in a thousand years we have chance to remember in this busy schedule how beautiful farms look in outskirts of cities; farms and fields that used to refresh our souls in childhood.
Our world is being busier, more competitive and less happier. I remember Ashfaq Ahmed who once said, “Baba ji asks us to do lil things for spiritual growth. He asks us to peal off peas.”
Long time since I pealed off peas in peace. I don’t even remember who does the job now at home! Flowers I still love but do not have the time to grow them. I find them only in the lawn suits. Changing seasons always take me to a special state where I imagine living a life of ideal schedule.
