Jeevan



Jeevan was my schoolmate, but gradually we lost touch. I came to know that he had become a spiritual guru, and laughed at the thought. A monk? Huh!

We met at a reunion, and he exhibited an aura of calmness.

"You seem so satisfied. Doesn't anything bother you?" I couldn't stop asking.

"Life is a celebration. Success, failure, love, loss, everything encompasses it. Why should we give prominence to just one feeling, and ignore the rest? Relish when you are happy, cherish when you are sad, but always make sure, to differentiate between good and the bad," he smiled.
