Time is precious

We have all come across a saying that  'Time and tide wait for none’. The tentacles   of time have embraced in its grip every living being . Why living beings alone? Even nature is bound by time. The sun rises at its allotted time. It sets and the moon takes over. Wow! What a disciplined rotation!  So too is the control of time on human beings. Have you ever wondered how ‘tide’ is  associated with  time? There is a   famous  story of a King who prided himself  in being invincible.He  boasted  to his courtiers that  even elements are under his control  and he rules over even the waves. To prove his claim he led his courtiers to the sea side  and commanded the waves to  stop.But he failed to to keep in check the tides.Thus time and tide  have become ever lasting partners!!
 The time has no limit .It is eternal. It was there in the past, it is currently in the present and will continue to be in the future. Thus the past, present and future are governed  by time. The time is timeless. Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future has  not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires.  said  Charles Caleb . Every thing happens according to time. You must have seen parents worrying  about their son not getting a job  or not getting   a suitable bride .Every thing will happen  at the destined and appropriate time. The Omar Khayamm’s famous words
“The moving finger  writes and having writ
moves on,: not  all your piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back  to cancel  half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.”
Right from childhood the children must be  made to understand  the  value  of time. It must be ingrained in their minds that they must  not waste time.  They must respect  time. Time once gone will never be back It will go forward .It is for us to utilise it. If you do not respect  time it will flee from  you. You must realise that you must not waste time.  Once wasted the the time will fly away from you.Only the irresponsible and  foolish people do not respect the time. The intelligent among us understand the value of time.You must have seen many people who are all the time complaining that they  have no time. If properly planned, we can catch the time and use it fruitfully.
  Time is a great healer.The days of sorrow and grief do not last   forever. Time  enables you to come out of your   failings and  frustrations  with a healing touch. We  must respect  time and acquire positive feelings You must follow the examples of your fore fathers  who were great achievers.  Remember the famous poem ‘The psalms of life” written by Longfellow.
   Lives of great men all remind us
    We can make our lives sublime,
   And, departing, leave behind us
   Footprints on the sands of time.
