Love. Life et al.

Posted on: October 20, 2007

Those who know me will tell you that I never talk about relationships. Well, i don’t think i am old enough of a soul to talk about it nor the supreme authority to give people advice. We live with the choices we make and the only thing we have absolute rule over is in the decisions we make. I let people enjoy that liberty.

But in the usual thoughts about life, choices, decisions and all, the one thing that summarizes a good life is one that is with the least bit of regrets. Wouldn’t you say so?

We can go on to debate about the endless cycle of freewill, destinations and how a million things stood in the way of making the right choice, but at the end of the day, is it quite easy to put your heart at peace when you know you could have done better, if not for just a little more effort into doing the right thing?

I am writing this because i do realize that love and life, is not about romantic relationships alone. If there are two words that are most associated with startups, its the word “love” and “passion”. And love and passion does have its share of heartbreaks, agony, suffering, headaches, without which the pleasure of standing on the summit – finally – wouldn’t be what it is.

Suddenly every quote of shakespeare, and every poet that has sung of love.. seems to sound the same as the words of Peter drucker 🙂
