काल करे सो आज कर, आज करे सो अब
पल में पर्लय होएगी, बहुरि करेगा कब
Tomorrow’s work do today, today’s work now
If the moment is lost, the work be done how
The famous wordings from Kabir (one of the greatest poets of Indian history) has lost its importance today. We now are totally dependent on tomorrow ‘ kal dekhenge yar‘ ,’kal karenge yaar‘….the reason has not yet been established. I just don’t understand that in the end,when you have to do the work then why are you leaving it for the next day? This situation is not just applicable for any one particular group of people but it is applicable for everyone. From a child to an adult, from a student to a serviceman, from the lower bureaucrats to the politicians, its seems like it has become a hereditary problem-like passing a particular DNA from your parents to yourself and from yourself to your children. We know that we will be affected but ‘ab aadat si ho gayi hai.’ Why don’t we understand the importance of time—ham kyun nahi samajhte ki- ‘every second is precious.’
Our mind has been set from the time we were students, to depend on the last Night for our exam preparations. Although we know that it’s the most important part of our lives, yet we always leave it for the last night. The same sequence is maintained for the rest of our lives and at some point in our lives, we understand how important that phase of our life was, and we lost in some stupid, very stupid work. But its not just with students, its the case with everyone. For example go in any office for any work –he will give you tomorrow’s date or any other date, see the examples of the politicians just wasting the time of the parliament for many meaningless things, etc.
The main reason behind all the successful people is that they don’t leave anything for tomorrow, they believe that if they have to do it then why not do it today. Its very important for us to understand the greatness of time and utilize it for some constructive work.
