In the movie, “Old,” the characters age rapidly and their lives get over in a single day. We think we live for years but, in the big scheme of things, it is less than a day. If we all knew that we only live for one day, how would we spend this day? We can live such a life that, after all is said and done, it just feels like it’s only been a day. I prefer being older than when I was younger, as I do not have to go through the teething stage of ignorance—what I believe to be real and unreal. So if ‘old is gold’ it is because you have been well polished and the golden glow can be seen by others. Satish Daryanani
