GROWTH VS GETTING OLD
Are you growing or getting old? This question could be worth a zillion if you wish to have a new day at every day-break. Well one-half is already taking place; you need not make any effort.
Growth is creating, generating, processing, modifying, to yield, and deliver for benevolence.
Getting Old It is amassing (time), collecting, gaining, gathering, piling, addition to body height and weight; and consequently wilting and withering out.
Some examples below will help dilate, simplify and elaborate the question. These pointers may help you categorize and measure the efforts of your yesterday. Heartiest congratulations if you were ‘growing’. And a heroes’ salute if you break the shackles and decide and start growing, from tomorrow
First. Did you introduce any new game? Any newer versions like One-day or Twenty-Twenty. Have you pondered about para-gliding, free-fall or sailing….which would be the game of 21st Century, or which one is getting obsolete and should be removed from Olympics?
First. Some games and sports were being played in the world when you were born, and as a kid could name these. For instance Cricket (Test), Foot-ball, Soccer, boxing, Hockey etc. Now you have added a great deal more to your vocabulary. May be you have learnt a number of new ones to play.
Second. Which piece of crockery did you introduce; butter-dish? Your mother of mothers five generations ago was cooking on coal and fire-wood, which fuel or burner did you add? Did you develop a hybrid multi-fuel burner, which could use coal, coal-gas, kerosene; natural gas and electricity…are working on it?
Second. You had more than twenty types of kitchen-ware, crockery and cutlery items in your home, two decades ago. And you have added; seen being added another five or ten new items. For instance ice-cream scoop, hand-held juicer, press-n-pour or microwave… Are you going to buy a new one next week
Third. Which means of transport did you develop and modify? Are you working on a ni-cad, rechargeable single and two-man scotty? How have you been benevolent to your city/country with reference to the means of transport?
Third. Your father had a bi-cycle…later bought a motor-bike for him and you. Now you have a car. Your son is using a hybrid limo. And of course you have seen your skies being decorated with different airliners, year after year…
Last. When you add bricks around you and above your head, and add to the capacity of the fuel tank of your car. When you add to the covered area of your house, and number of houses. When you add to acres of land…and the number of personal body guards….Older you get, Decay you would. And you know, He can take away the toddler holding the finger of 90 years old grand-grand pa, leaving the old hag down and out, yet living. Grow; you should, make a choice to Create, Generate, Yield and Deliver for benevolence. Values have no boundaries. Wishing You a brighter Tomorrow
