is it really irony or blessing....


think of all gods designs - they are perishable and always changing....why then are we striving for permanence..(just my thought)

@keshi -> thanks !!!

@kp -> hmmmmm .... not sure if thats a good thing :)

@ceedy -> i dont think we too strive for permanence actually .... we only strive for congenial and gratifying changes :)

@hiren

well said...but isnt it in the back of our mind that these changes that we strive for...once we acheive them...they are permanent...not refuting...just having a discussion

what I am trying to say - all the we strive for is to reach a certain level of comfort...to that point we are all upbeat but then once acheived we become complacent hoping that its a steady state...which you and me both will agree - it never is....

Hiren said...

@ceedy -> hmmmm .. agreed to an extent ... but that certain level of comfort is the change we are striving for ... and once thats achieved theres another change which we crave for .... for which we might be upbeat again .. and this change not necessarily addendum to the previous change ... it can be totally unrelated ....

but having said that i agree that there are for sure a few basic permanence that we all strive for ... :)

And yet we try to postpone the ultimate end.
