live in deeds not in years

in the year 1995 when i was only 7 years old 'we live in deeds and not in years' was the first extempore topic of debate given to my senior school mates that i had witnessed,till then i had been oblivious to the concept of debate although i was a perennial choice of my teachers for assembly speaking,oration.etc by virtue of the fact that i was an ensnarer.but that topic of debate had left an everlasting impression on me even at such an early age.often such things are of trivial importance to one and many but to me it was merely not a parable but a fact that i confront perpetually.priorities with growing age become formidable,they get restructured, and they also get neglected sometimes these elements and entities lead to absolution.but are the priorities so difficult to manage that it is not important to leave an impression in mankind by virtue of what you are and not by what you have or posess? are we not supposed to serve the purpose that we are born for?.a man is neither born with assets,wealth,a multimillionaire fortune or anything nor will he die with any of these,if he leaves then its only the goodwill and the good memories of the times he cherished till the time he lived.
god has given us a small timespan of life,according to him our loved ones ought to die otherwise its difficult to acknowledge their love for us and feel their absence,often its our tendency to not spare enough time for people always around us and make them feel that how important their role is in our lives but once they are gone then we have a feeling of guilt questioning our conciousness and igniting the internal conflict within that how essential it was to spend quality time with them and how much we wanted to but could not love them.
certain people in life our very special,they leave an impeccable mark of their personality,character,friendship,love in our life but owing to the changes in life patterns today we never bother to drop them a mere message as a gesture of rememberance and respect,is it because of the priorities that keep us busy?is it because of the fact that we are too keen on achieving something distinct and eminent?or is it just because of ignorance that has slowly mesmerised our minds by virtue of the diplomacy and ego that we carry in dealing with people of varyingly aloof and versatile characters? a wisdom filled person would always point his finger to the third reason for all this absolution.everyone likes to feel important,everyone likes to feel their essence or presence among others but merely thriving on others to approach all the time and maintaining a diplomatic relation with all spoils the beauty and eloquency of life.people visit the best of restaurants,bars,pubs.etc and spend substantial amounts or part of their wealths at such places,but hardly anyone thinks about providing a poor beggar and his hungry wife and kids with even a miniscule amount with which they can fill up their hungry stomachs,people absolve from helping the poor and the needy,they absolve from taking care of their old grandparents or even parents for that matter,their ego precludes them from keeping terms with some friends or even dropping by a message.people hav started to live life in years,phases,seasons and not in deeds.it is much better to have a brief span of life and yet spread hapiness and joy around us,it is the purpose of life.living a life of kindness,goodwill,charity is much better than living a life of diplomacy,ignorance,futile and unproductive one.so 'live life in deeds and not in years' because inside we all know that if we havent accomplished the purpose of life itself then we never lived one!!
