Having Your Portrait On The Wall... Top Priority! How Many Of Us Will Have?!


I read this 'Chinese proverb' list recently! This one sounds good! Let me comment on each stage!

 1.  At one, YOU are the top priority
 
Parents are there to take care of us! Enjoy their pampering without any thought!

10. At ten, academic excellence is the top priority
Study, study, study...starts! It was very easy for me, since no one pressured us in those days! My children were happier at this stage than most of the present children!

 20. At twenty, getting dates is the top priority
 
For us, the parents were pressurised to send off the daughters out of the house in 'marriage'.  Some clicked and some carried on! Some were lucky enough to get what they wanted, I was one among them!

 30. At thirty, a good career is top priority
 Yes! If you don't, your life will be miserable!

 40. At forty, keeping your body in shape is top priority
 
Very true!

 50. At fifty, beating others at mahjong is top priority
 
We don't have mahjong but others are here! Start enjoying life as we wish!

 60.At sixty, keeping IT up is top priority
 Yes!

 70. At seventy, remembering something is top priority

 Very much! I will know in another decade!

 80.At eighty, moving around is top priority
 
I think so/might be!

 90.At ninety, knowing directions is top priority
 Should we be there to experience this?!

100. Having your portrait on the wall is top priority!
 Will I?!!! This is left for our childrens' priority! We won't know, so tension nahin     lene  ka!

Try to be good as much as possible, true to your conscience! You will be happy always! It applies to me too, I know!

I liked this list! What do you feel?


These babies made me happy always!

good list..I feel scared of living beyond 75..may be even 70 is enough..
Rest I always feel that those who do the right thing always sleep well:)

Sandhya said...

RENU: Yes, a clean conscience keeps us happy and then we sleep well, which is very important after some age!

My mother left us at 72! I am hoping on that! We should not be a burden to anyone, which is my wish...learnt it from my mother!

I would rather have the portrait of the two cute kittens hanging on my wall :)

Sandhya said...

RAMAKRISHNAN RAMANATHAN: Everyone will admire them, LOL!

ashok said...

good post...nearing 40 and your list is true!

Sandhya said...

ASHOK: Yes, that is the reason I did a post on it! All the points here are true, I felt!

Remember Rajini's song in Annamalai...same words come there!

Nice list Luckily I am moving around briskly.Mahjong is an interesting game you can download in your computer or iPad.It can become addictive too.Try it

Jeevan said...

This is interesting! The last one strikes a lot... lol

Cute picture :)

Priya Anandakumar said...

Liked the list, very interesting, loved the last one...

Rama Ananth said...

Your kittens are so cute.

Varunavi said...

Nearing 40 agree with all what you wrote.

Destination Infinity said...

When I am 100, I will want my portrait to hang in many many houses, not just my house. Like how Gandhiji's photo hangs in many houses now :P

Destination Infinity

Sandhya said...

K.PARTHASARATHY: You will be active for many more years to come, Partha Sir! Will power, more than body weakness, keeps us active, I think!

You had sent this list sometime back and I liked it and did a post on it!

I think I must have played Mahjong a couple of times long back! I get addicted with computer games very easily!


JEEVAN: Yes!

I know that the last picture will catch everybody's attention here than the other points! That is one of my favourite picture of our cat Goalie, when she was a kitten!


PRIYA ANANDAKUMAR: Thank you, Priya!


RAMA ANANTH: I knew that your attention will be mostly on our kittens' picture! Be like this always, Rama! I admire you for that...always young at heart!


VARUNAVI: Yes, Saritha! Be active and happy and you will feel young always!


DESTINATION INFINITY: It sure will hang in my house! Let me tell my son!!!





Onkar said...

very nice

Usha Pisharody said...

Pertinent list.
The idea would be to break out of the confines of that list, and do something else, for me. Of course, the body has to be willing, even if the spirit is! :D

Glad to be back here, after a while!

umsreflections said...

Nice list Sandhya !! I wonder who is worried abt their portrait on the wall at 100 :)

Gouri Guha said...

A good list. But 100, not a thought about it :)

Sandhya said...

ONKAR: Thank you, Onkar! The kitten's photo?!


USHA PISHARODY: You are already doing it, Usha! I too am trying to do! Thank you!


UMS REFLECTIONS: Yes, who bothers?!


GOURI GUHA: This is just a list, for fun! Thank you!

Nah,this age factor is only in the mind.
I am confessing here that I feel as energetic and young as I did thirty years back.
I still flirt..I flirt with my wife at any given opportunity.
Don't worry about age...enjoy every moment God has blessed us with..

Sandhya said...

BK CHOWLA: It is good to know that you still flirt with your wife!!! Both of us sing songs together even now at night...film songs and our son enjoys! My mother also was singing in her 70's! Music is a great therapy for being happy always, I feel! Ageing is in our mind, as you say, Chowlaji! Thank you!

Sai Charan said...

Good list Sandhyaji!! :) Kittens photo in the end is so cute, do you get a chance to visit your old house? Just to meet your cats and see the plants :)

Cheers!! :)
