Time - what is it?


Time - The numbers are fixed, but the movements not. Some say they are having a tough time, while others say they have less or much of it. The numbers that represent time are the same for everyone: its 12 midnight now. But the movements are not.


You might be sitting in an examination hall, writing answers very fast, worrying about if you'd be able to finish the paper on time or not. You see the clock: 11am. Two more answers written and hands of the clock are now ticking at 11:30 am. What the heck! Time runs so fast, damn it!

And then there is another instance when you are waiting for your train at the station, rescheduled to 1 hour after the expected arrival. Trust me, even that 1 hour of waiting alone seems like several hours and still the train doesn't show up.

The definition of time is not one. It is good for some, and bad for someone else. Then for some people, time is just passing on, while the living really enjoy each second of it. Its not static after all.

It surely depends on the varying circumstances you correlate it with. Lovers embrace time to create 'moments unforgettable'. Those suffering from pain and losses of any kind, want it to par, as soon as possible. Our body works according to its own time, and the sleep-wake cycle goes on. "May be his time has come" are the usual words heard by a hospital bed. And then it also listens to the sounds of first cry of a newborn. :)

Time is the greatest gift of all to the human mankind.
Time is a created thing. To say, ''I don't have time'' is like saying, "I don't want to."  - Lao Tzu
