In the old days, people shook hands and the deal was done. Today, we have so many contracts. Even after agreeing and sending a Whatsapp message, we still need to sign every page. Our word and messages have no value. All a signature means is that you have agreed to all the terms and conditions and will not change your mind. Now, money is so important that people break their deals. When we were in our mothers’ wombs, in the darkness, we made a deal with God to never go into darkness again. There was no pen to sign the contract. So, we come out of the darkness after so many months just to go back into the darkness for many years. Perhaps, if we had signed a contract we might have tried to stick by our promise. It is not too late. Remember the verbal contract made with God. Be free from the self-imposed darkness. — Satish Daryanani
