UP ‘N DOWN LIKE A YO YO
By Neel Anil Panicker
Pity some of us aren’t either aware of or chose to turn a deaf ear to the maxim: what’s goes up definitely comes down.
At least that so was the case in Maya’s instance.
One moment she was up in the skies, floating gossamer like among the stars, showering bright rays of sunshine on all and sundry.
And then came the fall; a meteoric crash that saw her all her dreams crash landing onto the hard rock of reality, mercilessly crushing into smithereens her love laden heart that hitherto knew only love and happiness.
It was only then that she realized the wisdom of the ages as spelled out by the sages that all that one desires for and runs after is just maya, her namesake__an illusion__and that real happiness is always somewhere else.
Life’s been on the bend for her ever since as her hands perennially reach out to the skies for deliverance from all sorrows.
