Proceed And Halt

Life is an endless Journey
Journey is smooth some times
Journey is tiresome most of the time
Journey is pleasant few times
Journey finally ends over the time

Journey during child hood is filled with fun and frolic
One hardly feel the duration of the journey
10 to 15 % of life’s journey would have been covered

Journey changes its colour when entering adulthood
the road seems to be good in patches with occasional bumpy rides
15 to 30 % of life journey would have been completed

Journey suddenly becomes tense and worrisome on entering middle age
Pot holes appears to exist through out with hardly a patch of smooth road
30 to 60 % of life journey would have been covered
Chances are that the journey itself would have come to grinding halt

Journey becomes a night mare and miserable on entering old age
Life’s beautiful phase would look thing of past
Life’s ugly phase surface and spreads all over
Life’s journey would move at snails pace with occasional halts setting right the damages and moving further
An abrupt end to the Life’s journey is inevitable with the person refusing to move and lay standstill

When the Yellow light is switched ON
Infant is ready to take off

When the Green light is on
Infant moves on and in course of its journey
it grows up in stages to be kid,adult and aged

When the yellow light reappears
it is a signal that the journey needs to be slowed down
Now the aged one would be anxious enough to alight from his journey

Appearance of the Red signal indicates the journey has come to a grinding halt
and time has come to bid adieu

Life’s Journey is in no way different from the long distance Motor journey
In both the cases one would have been dead tired after the journey
