Of Birth And Death

Are we confining ourselves by tormenting our minds to always think about the most inevitable concept of any life?

When the world comes to a dot what are we? We are naught! Yup nothing more than nothingness, just a mere dot’s distance from fading away. Fading away into oblivion, waiting to be nothing more than anything and no more than nothing.

So you are really planning to take that exam?” Raghu was almost distraught about his friend Ramanan’s decision.

Huh yeah. Now please don’t keep staring at me like that!” Ramanan was trying to recollect the last few chapters in the course which he had prepared in a lot of hurry.

Sure of course I won’t! Who am I just another servant for great people like you.” The sarcasm in Raghu’s voice was inescapable.
