Everybody wants a life without pain....And what does it get you? ...This girl needs to be on a poster somewhere...to remind people 'pains there for a reason'!
-Dr Miranda Bailey in Grey's Anatomy while operating on Megan, the girl who had high sensitivity to pain....the girl who couldn't feel pain!!!

Well wouldn't we all love that! A life without pain.....

Today was just yet another day when I switched on a TV channel to watch Baba Ramdev's show. You see one episode, one session, in some remote part of the country and you feel the pain in the world. Cancer, sleep apnea, leaukemia, asthma, chronic heart ailnesss's, muscular distrophy and many such diseases that you can even barely spell correctly. And suddenly you feel so small in front of Him.... you feel so selfish...you feel so ungrateful. You remember all those times you cursed and asked God to help you catch a catch a rick back home, coz for you thats the worst pain you could go through 'that' day. Or the days you curse your fertile womb, that flushes out the divine blessing of bearing a child in a messy way...saying why me?

Dr. Bailey is right...pain is there for people to remind of something. To remind suttle truths..facts...that just might get lost in a day of chores, work, children, money! Pain is for a reason for you to stop and look back, not necesarily change your ways, but atleast ponder. Heartbreaks~heart-attacks, loss of a dear one~loss of your favourite blue shirt at the laundry, broken heart~broken nail...these are all pain! None less, noen more!
Just needs for us to sit, sit still and go within the pain...but then its still pain and its there for a reason.

A reason quite beyond our imaginations....
