How does a word perishable strike you? Do you pause for a moment and ponder over it, or shrug your shoulders and keep on with whatever you are doing? What do you think about feelings which are intangible and will eventually perish? Oh, Why am I saying this? Why am I thinking about perishability? We’ve heard about perishability of goods (tangible) in school. But nowadays I’m thinking more about the goods which are perishable as well as intangible, like friendship, love and gratitude.
So, what should we do? I think we need to be more compassionate than ever before, and for this we can start from today, right now, not tomorrow, because all this, whatever it is, will ultimately perish.
