(CALCUTTA, NOW SETTLED IN NEW DELHI)

LIFE IS NEITHER A REMIX NOR A REMAKE


LIFE IS NEITHER A REMIX
NOR A REMAKE!

Our life is neither a remix nor a remake,
Where the actor, the script, and the music
always change!
Each single life remains as an unique
and as an original piece,
Where our individuality asserts and finally
peaks!
We should be grateful for this God-given
life,
Which is always completed in a single take!
Forgetting those insipid and immitative
remakes!
Let us treat this life as a rare gift and a
treasure,
For life is an art of drawing without
an eraser!
