Time goes, you say? Ah no!
Alas, Time stays, we go.

It's too bright. Where am I? So many people looking at me? OMG! Who are these people? Why are they touching me everywhere? Oww, that tickles! I'm feeling hungry! Am I crying?
They are with me all day. This room is pink in color!! They make funny sounds all day, why?
Mommy. Daddy. Granny. Grandpa. Started talking! And these people, they are my people. :)
Wow. I can walk now! :D This is interesting! So much to explore!
Why do I have to go to school Mommy? I wanna be at home with you! :(
College! Graduation! Hurrah! B-)
I work for a MNC now. Don't believe it! So busy.
Engaged! and finally, Married.
Mishti. She's so pretty. My daughter.
Is someone fast-forwarding my life here? Who's doing this? I was just now born and within a few blinks I have my own new-born! Hate to say this but time really flies. :-/
Mishti's going to school!
My l'll girl makes me proud. Get's into IIT for Engineering! ;) ;)
She's growing up. I'm growing old..........
Mishti goes for higher studies. Finds a job. I'm graying and my back hurts now, often.
Mishti's getting married!
Mishti's getting married? Just feels as if I got married now! Hate to say this but time really flies! Phew! Where did all that time go?
Time which is actually a quantifiable thing becomes undefinable when it comes to life! We often talk about killing time, the truth is that time slowly kills us. We don't even realize when and how we move from one phase to another in life. Mighty changes just happen like that!! It is ironical that when you are 75 years old, relaxing in your rocking chair, sipping your filter coffee, thinking about life, you'd be clueless about how everything happened so fast! Saint Augustine rightly said, "What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know." That's the power of time! You'd be playing with your grandchildren, still be wondering the whole cyclic sequence of events and say again, "Time flies!!!"
Most importantly, one day when your life flashes before your eyes. Make sure that, it's worth watching. ;)
Whether we wake or we sleep,
Whether we carol or weep,
The Sun with his Planets in chime,
Marketh the going of Time.
