  3. It's really a RAT race everywhere we go.. but the trouble is.. even if you win.. you're still a RAT.

    It might matter to some people.. where as to some people for whom everything is MAYA, it might not matter..

    And then there are people who say it doesn't matter but if you look deep inside.. it really does matter to them as well.. and they are fighting secretly

    1. True Shri..I think there is one more kind..who are a part of race but they enjoy being a part of the race..learn things..and move on to the next race..If they win they are happy and if they don't they don't fret about it!!!!

  7. I like how your haiku evokes all of our questions. If you made a difference in the world in a good way, even helping one person, then the life was worth the effort. Just my perspective.

  8. That was a thought... what will matter at the end? Interesting questions.
