Dear Zindagi - Best Buddy Yet a Stranger

Dear Zindagi,

Hi! How are you doing? This letter is quite different as if I would write to someone else then my first question generally is – “How is LIFE treating you?” but it’s you so I would like to know how I am treating you. Haha…Tricky question, Isn’t it?

LIFE (Zindagi), you are like a stranger yet soul connected because when I feel I have completely understood you, you show me your yet another shade. It leaves me completely awestruck and give the zeal to try my best to deal with the situations you put forth.

You have multiple names and each person have their own style of addressing you. At times with hue and cry, sometimes with peaceful soul and also sometimes irritated. How do you manage with varied emotions of all? You have multiple comparisons too, (God! I would be lost if it happened to me) from Balance Sheet to Water, from Electronic Gadget to a plateful meal. But still you keep showering your magnificent aura and charm the person.

LIFE, I feel you are a mystery box which pops up with load of surprises as whenever I give you a title and think this who you are you change the next moment. At every age I define you and compare you with the things I love the most. 

At the age of 3, family is LIFE,
at 5, chocolates is LIFE,
at 10 school is LIFE,
at 15 friends are LIFE
at 19 career is LIFE
at 25 partner is LIFE
at 30 kids are LIFE
at 35 family is LIFE. 

Isn’t it a complete circle. See I gave you another name ‘Never ending circle’. 

Zindagi, how can you be so selfless and modest, you keep going with my decisions, many are correct but of course few are wrong too, but you never leave my hand or take a pause. Without judging me you are with me. I have many happy moments with you to cherish for but at the same time I have complains too. Your answer to each of my complain and fears bought you more closer giving me strength to revive and recreate. It is like a celebration to walk with you, but my unsatisfactory nature pushes me backwards. 

Slowly you lift me imbibe the courage to keep my pace right. Zindagi I learned the value of contentment and selflessness from you. Indeed you are the one who taught me to smile, cry, and think, to defend, positivity, love and courage.

There are times when we express ourselves be it birthdays or anniversaries mothers’ day, fathers’ day, and what not, but never celebrated a day to celebrate my connection with you ‘Zindagi’.

Today I say a big thank you and sending a tight hug to you Zindagi for being there for me and understanding me.                
Three cheers to the bond with Zindagi. I dedicate these lines to you

I rose you taught me to walk 

I toppled you balanced 
I cried you gave courage 
I smiled with you beside.

Signing off,
Your dearest admirer

Your Soul Friend :)
