DIABETES & TERMITE

DIABETES & TERMITE

An email asked me to tell something about Diabetes that the world does not know.

I told something like this: "Diabetes is like the termite that eats a book supposedly in safe custody. Termite does not bother whether the book is Bhagavad Geetha, Holy Bible, Constitution of a nation or a work of William Shakespeare.

One will not notice the danger & damage until late or access it.

Likewise for Diabetes, our Kidney, Retina, Brain, Blood Vessels, Feet etc are alike (victim be multimillionaire, VIP or VVIP)!

Hence it is up to us, victims, to safeguard the vital organs from the onslaught of the FIERCE DISEASE."

When any body loses life then everything becomes meaningless except he has to gain a new life about which nothing can be predicted.

My presumption didn't go wrong!

Often diabetes is the root cause of loss of life, and the death certificate will record the cause of death as myocardial infarction for example.

and then probably you will decide that it is useless to remain in this body and will bid goodbye and depart to hell/heaven as per destiny leaving the diabetes totally with the truncated body to be buried deep in the pit..

Reply

What about re-birth?

Reply

yes.you can try if such a thing is there in the scheme of God after daparture to hell/heaven as per destiny

@bhanjois72,

After having lived with full faculties for 5, 6, 7 or more decades anyone may find it impossible to cope with a truncated body.

If one place oneself in that position, there is no doubt that the narration will not be so lite hearted.
