A poignant query

The financial upheaval across the world is affecting all. It is being lablled in different names like monetary meltdown, recession, economic slowdown et al.

What disturbed me last night greatly was a question posed by a not so dear friend while at school. She asked me if it was a mistake on her part not to fail this academic year. Obviously, she isn't getting offers that match her qualification and academic credentials. Though she asked and then we switched over from one topic to another until we hung up. Her inquiry is still echoing in my mind. But, admittedly I had no answer to her poignant query.

My heart truly goes to my friend in particular and to all those who are facing a hardships in this difficult situation.

All, I can say my fellow human beings is that tough times don't last but tough people do. Things may not be rosy for the moment but surely they won't be same forever.

Until then cheers.... to life and the exciting labyrinth that it is.



  1. Some of the most fascinating things about human beings are how resilient and adaptable we are. There are few other being in this world that has the capability to live through what we as humans can and still flourish at the end.

    Unwanted change is not the end it's a new beginning but you need to dare to take the first step into the unknown.

    Cheers to the labyrinth of life =)
