Value of Time

13 December 2010

Time is valuable in its every unit. This fact is beautifully portrayed by this poem which appeared in the August 2005 issue of the WISDOM India magazine. Some poems, stories and thoughts had a very strong impact on me. This poem is one of them.

To realize the value of one year
Ask a student who has failed in his exam.

To realize the value of one month
Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week
Ask an editor of a weekly.

To realize the value of one day
Ask a daily wage labourer.

To realize the value of one hour
Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute
Ask the person who has missed the train.

To realize the value of one second
Ask the person who has survived in an accident.

To realize the value of one milli second
Ask the person who has won the silver medal in Olympics.
