As we age

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Growing up, we look forward to our birthdays. We count down the number of nights of sleep until the most awaited day. We look forward to opening our gifts. We are so eager to get older quickly and start enjoying the perks of a teenage life.

My three-year old daughter considers herself as an “ager” (this is how she actually says it) and not a baby. She also acts like one, with her own make-up kit, high heels and assorted bags. Of course, she idolizes her mother and sisters. You can only imagine how much of a live doll they make of her.

But, as we get older, we want to delay our aging process. We don’t even want to celebrate our birthdays. We want to remain forever young, which is impossible. As I look back, one can say that time really moves so fast. Sometimes, we feel that there is not much time to do everything we want to accomplish in life.

Bossing

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

My previous column was about Nelson Mandela uniting his country through a Rugby team. The movie “Invictus”, for those who have not seen it yet, is a must-see, especially for our new political leaders today.

South Africa is now host to the Football World Cup, a very prestigious tournament that has the entire globe watching. It is such a beautiful country in terms of natural resources. Mandela’s challenge was to unite a country that was always controlled by system of racial segregation. The black Africans, who used to be at the bottom, are now the boss of the country.
