An adventure called life

If we really pause to think for moment we will realise that our lives are one big adventure. Every moment that we encounter in our lives unfolds new things, new challenges and new mysteries for us to unravel. We always have to be alert to handle these challenges that our lives throw our way.

None of us know what is going to happen the next moment. Nobody can divine the future and that is precisely what make our journey in life so enjoyable. There is untold mystery in every moment. Life throws ups new problems, puzzles and conundrums for us to crack. The problemes could be in the personal or professional space but it is brand new challenge that we are confronted with. When we solve the problem we move up a notch in life with the lessons learned. Life and time are the greatest teachers of mankind.

Yesterday, while gazing out of the window of my train I saw another train passing by. Ordinarily I would not have given it more than a fleeting glance but yesterday I was really fascinated by the huge mechanical contraption chugging in the opposite direction. I was amazed that man has been able to use his intelligence in making such a grand design to carry men and goods across long distances. There are several such brillant inventions where human beings have solved difficult problems and conundrums of nature.

Whichever side you look you will always find the progress made by human thought is great. Whether it is computer science, medicine, physics, bio-technology creative writing etc. All these have been possible because man has used his intelligence and creativity to solve the difficult problems of nature and life.

As long as we are filled with wonder at nature and human ingenuity, all problems that our life throws up will be regarded as just another test for us to pass and progress in life. The most important ingredient for success is to have an unquenchable zest for life.
