I came across one nice e-mail about life.
An elderly man in Mumbai calls his son in New York and says, ‘I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce; 35 years of marriage… and that much misery is enough!’
‘Dad, what are you talking about?’ the son screams.
‘We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,’ the old man says.
‘We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!’
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. ‘Like heck they’re getting divorced,’ she shouts, ‘I’ll take care of this.’
She calls Mumbai immediately, and screams at the old man, ‘You are not getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then , don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR??’ and she hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. ‘Okay’, he says, ‘It’s all set. They’re both coming for Diwali and paying their own airfare!!’
No man / woman is busy in this world all 365 days. The sky is not going to fall down if you take few days LEAVE and meet your dear ones.
OFFICE WORK IS NOT EVERYTHING IN LIFE and MONEY MAKING IS NOT EVERYTHING IN LIFE.
So true is this article. We will be so busy in our schedule, that we will be not able to call our beloved friends and family. Only thing comes out of our mouth is I was busy, so could not call. I always wonder, are the people so busy, they don’t even get 5 minutes time in their schedule, which they can spend time with their family? Seriously I don’t think this is possible. They get so many 5 minutes in the day-to-day activity which they do nothing in those time, some of which is listed here:-
Traffic Jam:- I think each and everyone will get struck in this traffic jam for a minimum of 2hrs in a day. They spend this time either by shouting on others or cribbing about the Traffic police or the Government for making th e roads bad. But they never think that they can make use of this traffic jam for calling a near one. I know that while driving mobile should not be used, but atleast can message some nice words to a friend or beloved one, which will not take a minute also. But no one does this.
Lunch time:- I think in all the Company, the lunch timings will for minimum of half an hour and will stretch for one hour. As far as I know, lunch will take maximum of 20 minutes. People make use of another 10 minutes to go for a smoke rather to keep in touch with the family and friends.
The list goes on. Friends and Family are very precious in life. We can earn money and build our career, whenever we want, but spending time with Family and friends is very important.
It has to be done in right time; otherwise, money is of no use, when you don’t have anyone with you.
