Between Last and First

Yesterday was the last day
of my ‘spent’ life
and today is the first day
of my ‘rest’ of life
‘rest’ turns into ‘spent’
in no time…

–Kaushal Kishore



  1. Perspective and attitude are the sparks, I think, in how one views life. There needs always be purpose to one’s life however much that…”rest of life” may be. Wonderful thought-provoking piece, Kaushal. I love its deep nuances of seemingly simple words.

    1. Wow! That’s wonderful. Thank you. Happy birthday, Suzi! Wish you all the best on this earth today and every other day to come! Stay blessed always πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–πŸ™


    1. Thank you, Siva Jyothi for your comment! Don’t go so deep. What I mean to say is that if we don’t utilise today, it will become past, a part of our spent life. Today is the bridge between past and future. Hope I’m clear to you.

    1. Just to enjoy and utilise today that will not only become past, but also create opportunities for future. Thank you for stopping by.


      1. Oh sure, I missed it again. I don’t get notification of your posts. Okay no issue, I periodically visit your site to check for new posts.


  2. Nice words Kaushal. The key is to keep moving on and striving to make every day meaningful. We get a fresh chance every morning to make our day count. Great use of the two contrasting pictures to emphasis the point in very few words. You have a unique gift of conveying deep thoughts using few words.
