Tag: Death


The term widowmaker is used both in forestry & medicine

Merriam Webster defines Widowmaker as

‘Something having the potential to cause sudden loss of life.

Forestry example-any loose overhead debris such as limbs or tree tops that may fall at any time.

In medicine -a nickname used to describe a highly stenotic left main coronary artery or proximal left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery of the heart, which is very often fatal.


Chief causes of heart attack (windowmaker)

Diabetes, obesity and smoking are the leading causes.

This condition is seen in women also.

If it occurs in women and becomes fatal- according to Dr Niess, then we may call the condition as widower-maker!

“It’s the things that you least expect that hit you the hardest”  Unknown

Can you prevent, avoidable deaths?

I don’t know.

I guess one must have the foresight in knowing the dangers in advance.

My feeling is, unavoidable deaths happen because of either you are careless or somebody is careless & Irresponsible.

Whom do you want to blame?

Who will take the responsibility?

You can enrich me further.

“My fear was not of death itself. But a death without meaning” Huey Newton

“In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart. You may never know when you may not have that chance again” Unknown

Dear friends, please share your thoughts on avoidable Accidents & Deaths.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Tuesday Thoughts

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal”. From an Irish headstone”    Richard Puz

Do you believe that ‘Love’ truly hurts’?

What is your frank opinion my friend?

Are you the aggrieved party, always in matters of ‘love’?

Then read this.

What does everyone in general say?

“Everyone says Love hurts, Yes, you read it right.

But that is not true.

Loneliness hurts.

Rejection hurts.

Losing someone hurts.

Envy hurts.

Everyone gets these things confused with ‘Love’, but in reality ‘Love’ is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again.

Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt”    Unknown

Are you aware of the Power of Love?

“Love is a cycle…

When you love, you feel you get hurt

When you get hurt, you hate

When you hate, you try to forget

When you try to forget, you start missing

When you start missing, you will eventually fall in ‘love’ again” Unknown

I am sure by now you have realised that we can’t survive without ‘love’ and love is a misunderstood 4 letter word!

Love never hurts….only our expectations do hurt us.

Please share your thoughts, my friend.


Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Never wish for a fairy tale to happen in your life!

“Life is a bitch; you get used though, or you kill yourself. Either way, you’re winning.” Ahmed Mostafa

Who says life is beautiful?

Any strong reasons to support with evidence?

Do you think life is beautiful?

And why do you feel that life is beautiful?

If you ask me I just have two reasons to say so.

  1. The first reason being, when you wake up in the morning, you are aware that you are alive.
  2. The second reason being, when you fall in romantic love, you say life is beautiful.

Other than this I find nothing to cheer up

My dear friend… read the following and you realize how harsh your life is and sadly you don’t recognize the same and are busy dreaming day and night that the future holds good.

Remember that you ultimately die, hoping that something good is going to happen, which you are not going to see since it never going to happen.

You are funny because you live in hope for tomorrow, forgetting that today is the best day to live since you are alive today.

Still, if you think your life is beautiful…then I request you to read these 37 harsh truths of your life.

  1. Money is everything. You are nothing without money.
  2. The world is not against you. It just does not care.
  3. You can’t please everyone.
  4. All of us are going to die, some of us early and some others late.
  5. Never take life too seriously.
  6. Today is your day. Make the best use of it or else it is too late.
  7. Nothing is free.
  8. No one is interested or cares about your problems.
  9. People only show you, what they want you to see.
  10. If you are not laughing, you are crying.
  11. No one is busy. It depends on how much they wanted to make you a priority.
  12. Everybody is selfish.
  13. None is your well-wisher and can backstab you any moment.
  14. Stop expecting or assuming or presuming.
  15. People, emotion, respect and affection changes over time. Change is the only constant.
  16. Life runs on the law of Karma.
  17. a complaint is a f*****g waste of time.
  18. The world owes you nothing.
  19. Chasing happiness makes you lose it more.
  20. There may not be a tomorrow.
  21. There is a lot, you can’t control.
  22. The only person, who can make you happy is yourself.
  23. There will always be people who don’t like you.
  24. The world only cares about, what it can get from you.
  25. The life you are living right now is a dream for many people but yet strangely you hate your life.
  26. No one will ever completely understand you.
  27. Sometimes you have to remove certain people from your life even if they are family.
  28. Children are honest creatures until they are taught not to be.
  29. Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate. Friends are always not trustworthy. You can trust them, but not blindly.
  30. Nothing ever happens exactly as you pictured it.
  31. Life is a mystery and you are not alone.7 billion people are living it without a clue about what happens next.
  32. No matter how many good things you did to people, they always remember that one thing you did not do for them.
  33. You will always have a critique.
  34. We are liars.
  35. When you are happy, you enjoy the music and when you are sad you understand the lyrics.
  36. Everyone wears a mask.
  37. Everybody carries at least one secret to their graveyard and no way you can know it!

The Real truth of Life

Life is simply a state of existence my friends.

Nothing more to add or subtract!

Life is a theatre stage my friend. You are a great actor, acting and impressing everyone that your life is beautiful!

And Dear Readers, I know you are all very well read and intelligent and are waiting to add some more…please feel free to add in the comment box.

If you think life is beautiful, then let me know …how….and correct me!

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Unexpected Visitor

What is your reaction when an unexpected guest visits you?

Just think.

Elementary my dear Watson!

Either you are excited or you become dull. Is it not so ??

Of course, I am not talking about the guests/strangers/relatives/friends…visiting you!


Then what?

My dear friend, have patience.

Read on…..

I can think of 5 things that happen or happening or happened in your life.

And all of them come to you uninvited!


Love is the most unexpected visitor in the form of Amnesia. It lets you forget about more than 6 billion other people in this world” Unknown

How was your first feeling of you falling in love?

And may I have the pleasure of listening from your mouth?

2.Again Love…..

Love never tells you as it is leaving and you struggle to understand!!

“Love is an uninvited visitor. It never tells when it’s coming and when it’s leaving” Hammodie Ali

3.Old age

” Old Age is the most unexpected of all things that happened to a person”. Leon Trotsky

I understand that majority of the old people refuse to believe that they have reached old age.

Surprisingly others have to remind them!!

I’m glad. It’s good for their health!

Don’t you agree my old pals?


Of course, each one of us is aware that ‘death’ comes as an unexpected visitor. But fortunately, we are not alive to express our reaction!

Isn’t it a good feeling that we can’t react to our own death?

And the death of a loved one at an unexpected time gives you a Shock followed by depression, followed by adjustment, and then acceptance and your life goes on…

5.Expect the unexpected

This is what everybody says. Do you agree?

“If someone says to expect the unexpected, slap them in the face and say “I bet you did not expect that” unknown

Just watch the reaction!!

Take home message

“Being human is a guest house.

A joy, a depression, meanness, or some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…

Welcome and entertain them all.

Treat each guest honorably.

Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond”

Jalaluddin Rumi

Which unexpected visitor do you love to welcome?

And why?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Precious Moments

Amy wanted us to share some of the precious moments we have had, before or during the pandemic.

However, for a change I wished to know the ‘Precious moments‘ of different kind, which all of us love to ignore.

Precious moments of discussion between couples (White coloured goat & Orange coloured goat) as they are about to be separated, and to be taken to the slaughterhouse.

I don’t know what these two creatures discussed during those precious moments!

What could have been their thoughts?

How you would have felt?

And your thoughts??

What are our thoughts when one is being approached by the Death God?

We only Hope & Wish that Death God delays His execution! This feeling is natural to all of us.

Oh! That Hope…….That single factor which keeps a human being alive!

Humans are unaware of the miseries staring ahead!

“Hope is the great deceiver. Hope is the piper who leads us sleepy to our slaughter.”
Brent Weeks

My thoughts-

“Pain is real. But so is Hope”  unknown

What are your thoughts on H O P E?

Please share your feelings.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Social Distancing👹


I distance my self from people for a reason

No no my friend ……..I am not talking about social media distancing.

Read further……….

Corona Virus aka Covid-19 is a new illness spreading like a wild fire.

Virus Going Viral !

I wonder who has invented the term “Going Viral”, a craze now a days in social media,with people doing all sorts of crazy things just to attain that 1 second fame !!

The Oxford English Dictionary’s earliest  citation for the use of viral in the sense of ‘involving the rapid spread of information’ is dated 1989  source-quora

I wish somebody gets statistics on this ‘Corona virus going viral’by means of shares,views,links,likes,etc.etc.

Corona Virus is the most searched term on the internet.

Enough is already said,read,digested & assimilated about the Corona virus.

Some Pundits have predicted dooms day.This we ignore for the time being and move on to the more important things.

The most popular items to control spread of virus said to be Facial mask and Sanitizers.

The only thing still not being popularized is Social Distancing.

Another hashtag going viral said to be #canceleverything.

What is Social Distancing ?

Social distancing is a public health safety intervention used to reduce the likelihood of transmitting communicable disease. Social distancing involves minimizing exposure to infected individuals by avoiding large public gathering venues, adhering to spacing requirements in the workplace, and following proper personal hygiene practices. Source-uchicago.edu

“Social distancing now is one of the greatest calls for altruism”  Jeff Martin.MD.MPH

How social distancing helps prevent the spread of the virus ?

Corona Virus spreads through respiratory droplets,when the infected person coughs or sneezes.

Because of this type of spreading via respiratory droplets …..maintaining ones distance is important and that is where Social Distancing plays a major role.

What is the distance one is supposed to maintain ?

Maintain a distance of 6 feet or 2 meters.

Watch this funny clip

My routine is getting disturbed !

My friend this is not time to be selfish.We all  must help the society, right from individual level to contain the virus going viral.Be a responsible socially conscious citizen.

Some of my thoughts

  • Since vacation time is coming in the next few months,if you have planned already,for Heaven’s sake just forget it.Cancel it and be happy to get back the refund. Strangely travelling is very opposite of Social Distancing.Remember airports,railway stations,bus stations,trains,buses,planes are all the locations, Virus waiting to strike you.
  • So no more public transport or car pooling etc.
  • Forget your romantic plans to go to movies or dining out.No more dating programs.
  • Stay away from the Gym.
  • Don’t spend long times  in public places.
  • If you are lucky, your company may ask you to work from home.Enjoy the paid holiday instead of grumbling.
  • Simply put together avoid shops,schools,museum,theaters,bars,entertainment venues and travel.
  • you can add your points too.

What about the other terms, we are coming across,like Self-isolation & Self-quarantine ?

Self isolation- It is for those persons who have symptoms of Corona virus.These persons are advised to stay home.

Self Quarantine-it’s for those who are suspected to have infected and are required to isolate themselves up to 14 days.

Final thoughts

Corona virus is not a joke.Let us stop posting and sharing memes on it.

May God keep all of us safe.

“Death can be as common as the common cold.
We have taken everything for granted, but we forget that we are only travelers here for a short time.
So don’t play the bus driver when you don’t know how to drive.”
Anthony T. Hincks   source-UCFS.edu

Be safe,play safe & be helpful to the society.

Thank you. Namaste  🙏🙏🙏

Why do you want to be remembered after you die ?

Is there any law of attachment after you die ?

What good it does to anybody if you are remembered after you die ?

Does it serve any purpose to you ?

Don’t feel bad if I tell you the truth.Nobody cares whether you are alive or dead.All are busy in their own world.Nobody has got time to remember you.

Let me be brutally frank here,some of your so called well wishers are glad that you died.

Come on. Can you force somebody to remember you all the time irrespective of the relationship you had ?

Shall I tell what exactly happens the day you die ?

Visitation-All your relatives and friends gather and talk to each other trying to remember the good things you did.

Funeral- Some of your known people may give Eulogy.

Burial service-A sad day for your relatives and friends.

Luncheons- Again people may remember and talk about you.

Memorial services- On this day,definitely you are remembered.

And what about your kith & kin ?

To my knowledge your kith/kin will remember you on your death anniversary at the most.They remember you in flashes now and then,as time passes.

You don’t wish them to be crying all the time. Do you ?

The life has to be back to routine for them,since remembering you at every second is not possible. Life moves on !

Whether you give permission or not…. change is the rule of mother nature and people change.

A third of Americans don’t know the names of any of their grand parents,a survey commissioned by the ‘Family history and consumer genomics’ company.( Source -Newyork posts & Babble)

Human memory is poor and short.

How else you wish to be remembered ?

I can only say that you may be remembered for the legacy you leave.

If at all you are remembered,it’s only because the memories bring happiness or sadness or anger.

Best way to leave a legacy is to donate your organs for the needy if you are sure you died healthy.

May I have the liberty to advice you ?

My advice to you….Try to live the moment every day,as if you are going to die next minute,instead of expecting/experimenting to be remembered after you die.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Life is a beautiful lie and death is a painful truth. Do you believe this ??

Yes I feel it is true.

It’s 2.7 minute read.

Life is a beautiful lie:

I can give many examples but a few suffice.

1. Lies are loved and truths are hated.

2. Ugly looking person suffers at every stage.

3. God is remembered only when problems are faced.

4. Every one has a dark secret.

5. Men look at women in ‘sex angle’ irrespective of age or relation.younger the woman better.

6.Money overtakes health,family,friendship and ultimately happiness.

7. Remember people only like you for what you have ,and not for what you are.The more rich you are,greater respect you command.

8. It’s impossible for you to meet your soulmate.twin flame or kindred spirit.All humbug.Each soul is unique,The theories are good for reading and for some one to enact.

9. Appetite grows with wealth.Regarding the nature of appetite ….I leave it to you.

10. Nobody cares for anything until it happens to them.

11. Menstrual cycle ( bleeding ) every month for almost 40 yrs is truly harsh.

12. Life is unfair right from birth,some are born disabled,some born rich,some born poor.

13. You have to live with the constant judgement by others of you .

14.The world is a cruel place.

15. Social media killing people.

16. The person you love most, hurts you a lot.

17. You can’t make every one happy.

18. All good things have to end.

19. People change.Friendship changes.Nothing is permanent.

20. You get what you get ,not what you deserve.

21. Life hurts a lot more than death.

22. Humans are amazing in that their sex is not limited to the same species.

23. The one certainty in life is uncertainty,

24. You only live once, so get used to the gutter.

25. Life is fundamentally sad,but with tinges of happiness.

Death is a painful truth:

1. Whether people be of high or low birth,rich or poor,old or young ,enlightened or confused,they are all alike in that the will one day die. Yamamoto Tsunetomo

2. No body cares to remember you forever after you die.

3. Death is the last intimate thing we ever do. Laurel K Hamilton

4. You can’t prevent death.

5. Death is not painful.But fear of death is painful.

Remember Woody Allen’s famous quote ?

“I am not afraid of death. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

Thank you.

Love is not complicated, people are


Love is not complicated ,people are

These days…relationship means… Any where without you is better than any where with you

How individual lives are changing ,relationships are thrown into the dust bin,people forgetting the meaning and value & sacredness of ‘LOVE’,

Thanks to addiction to social media & smart phones !

Relationships are harder now!

“Conversations became texting,

Arguments became phone calls,

Feelings became subliminal messages,

Sex became easy,

The word ‘love’ is used out of context.,

Insecurities became a way of thinking,

Getting jealous became a habit,

Trust is hard to come by,

Being hurt became natural.

Leaving became the only option,

Sad but true,

So if you have something…that is worth it,..don’t take it for granted,

Fight for it,don’t let it go”       pinterest


Be selfish,thanks to the inventions. indulge in your liking,Drink till you drop dead,fight without any reason,Ego is your life,jealousy is your partner, Greedy is your nature,Killing innocents is your taste,care not anybody,you owe the happiness you deserve,forget about dieting & exercises which are all money-making machines,,cheating is your mantra,money is everything and enjoy dying your own death,you owe nothing to anybody!

Is this the lesson modern-day life style teaching us ? Is this the meaning of advancement in human life ? Is this what all about relationships ?

And what about ethics,values,respect,responsibilities ,family relationship ?

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.
