Life is about hope

Once while travelling in an endless road in the midst of night, blustery wind was sending flurries of rain against the window. Silence was such that I could hear my own beats. My eyes wide open looking for one ray of light, one ray of hope.
No wonder, for sailors in deep dark ocean lighthouse is their only ray of hope providing assurance of life and safe entries to harbors.

Life is about helping the mankind

I always have high respect for people who donate blood and why not, it is such a noble cause- helping the mankind. However when it comes to me, I always had one or the other reason as naive as ‘I am not fit’ ‘I don’t have enough blood’ ‘I am busy’ ‘What if …’ ‘What if not…’ excuses were endless, all this to avoid getting into it.

Today, after seeing most of my colleagues making yet another booking to donate blood, I asked what inspires them, the very simple yet powerful response I got “We can save LIFE“. Though I knew this since ages but finally I got the courage to do it and yes, it’s an amazing experience. This time around I didn’t bother if I have enough of it or not, I didn’t bother if I will faint after donation moreover I didn’t pretend to be busy, I just did it! Believe me friends no gift is as precious as gift of life.
