Overview

Chapter 1

Warming up to the concept of Time.


"Now go on and enjoy yourself‚ dance to your heart's content and win the Prince's heart. But remember‚ you have to be back before the clock strikes twelve at midnight."

We all are familiar with the words of the Fairy God Mother in the evergreen fairy tale 'Cinderella'. It's these words that probably made us aware-for the first time in our lives-of the value of time. We all sympathized with Cinderella when all her splendid gown and other finery turned to rags at the stroke of midnight. Our first acquaintance with the villainous Time!

But then‚ is time such a villain‚ who should always be painted in black? We have heard the proverb that says "there are no wounds that time cannot heal."

Here of course we get the image of a wizened old woman who comes hobbling up to us with a pitcher full of balm and gentle fingers that soothe away all our pains and sorrows.

But that's enough! This book was not written to eulogize time. There is no need of the romance of Cinderella or the soothing finger of an old lady when we are talking about time. And do you know why? It's because we do not have the time for it.

We are going to try and understand time in its many faces. No‚ I was not referring to the faces of watches or clocks. I was referring to the many meanings that time has. Oh yes it does! You thought that time meant the same to everyone. Well think again; or maybe you could try to explain the logic behind the following cases.

Picture a farmer who plants a sapling of a tree that would probably take ten to twelve years to reach the stage when it would start to bear fruit‚ by then the farmer would in likelihood be under the soil himself.

Picture a jailbird in bird counting on the bars of his cell waiting for the seconds‚ minutes‚ and hours‚ days‚ weeks‚ months and years to go by before he can be free again.

Now picture a young couple madly in love with each other cherishing the few minutes they get to spend with each other every day‚ cursing time because it flies so fast when they are together and never the other way round.

So what does time mean to you?

When was the last time that you realized the value of time?
