Birth Day celebration- A day for introspection!
My brother had his birth day on 22nd May and following are the lines he had updated in his status on Facebook which were really inspiring for me!!!I’m sharing those lines here.

“Today I completed my 49 years of life since my birth! I reached to this stage, thanks to my parent, my siblings, my family, my friends, my society, my state, my country & the mankind. This is not a day for my celebration; rather it's a day for self-introspection. I have to introspect, what I have contributed to my family, my society & my nation in return of the favor they made me to survive till date with dignity. I have to find out my faults. I have to work out the possible amendments required. I have also to plan out my next course of action to return favor to all (parents, family, society, nation & above all humanity). After all we came here with a purpose & birth day is an occasion for self audit! I thank everybody who wished me & also everything that makes me surviving & doing good, just & proper work! Thanks!”

The most beautiful part that touched me and gave a spark to my thought is, “This is not a day for my celebration; rather it's a day for self-introspection. I have to introspect, what I have contributed to my family, my society & my nation in return of the favor they made me to survive till date with dignity.”

Really, our birth is never accidental. Just imagine how nature prepares itself to create a space for us much before our birth. Nature gives at least nine month to our parents to be prepared (both mentally and physically) for the nurturing of the forthcoming life on earth.

We are the product of our environment. Whatever we are today…it is because of our surrounding that includes our family, friends, society, mankind and the environment. We have been given so much to come to this state. Have we ever thought of returning the same to the society?

Nothing happens without a reason. In fact everything happens for a reason. Our birth is never without a reason…it has a purpose. A purpose that we need to fulfill to justify our presence on this earth.

Imagine an organization. For any recruitment there is a pre-preparation for the same. Once an employee joins the organization he/she is suppose to work and add his/her share of strength and skill for the betterment of the organization. It’s totally a “give and take” policy that rules at the base.

Similarly, earth is an organization and we are the members of its staffs. Our sole responsibility is to share our own proficiency and skill to boost the strength of Mankind and the Environment. We have a role and we have to justify that by taking the responsibility of the same. This is the purpose of our life.

However, many a times we forget our purpose and deviate from our obligations in the course of struggle for the existence. Then so many things go wrong or maybe we get drifted from our natural duty and became self centered. We are supposed to do a self audit in regular interval to access the potentials, address the weaknesses and explore the future prospects of our strength by doing amendments in life that blocks us from disposing our expected obligations.

May be “birth day” is a reminder of our life and its purpose. A day to introspect life so far doing a self audit and make out the action plans for the future to return the favors that we have been bestowed upon so far. It’s day of celebration of course but with introspection.

To be honest I have never thought of introspecting anything on my birth day at least. But I think there will be change in my thought hence forth.

I must say my brother from the beginning had his own radical views in life and more or less he lived a life of an activist inspiring everybody around him with his actions and thoughts to explore their own potential and get connected with the society to return something good.

Life is a gift but living is a talent. We came to this world crying while everybody was smiling around us. The simple purpose of our life get out of this world (which is almost accidental) smiling while as many people in tears around us. This is the purpose that a Birth Day reminds us!!!
