Life is Beautiful? Ain't it Ironical?

Day begins and people starts running frantically. Ican see happy faces, sad faces, angry faces and even people without an expression. Hardly i see fresh faces in the morning. All are busy, they got to go to work, they got tensions at home, the newspaper makes them angry or sad etc. None of us are happy about our life eventhough we are alive and got food to eat and water to drink, but every day we got something to complain about. Life is beautiful is Ironical at times.

 Why so Serious??

A quote The Joker said in the movie Dark knight, it is a very relevant question that joker asks. If you relate it to day to day life, the relevance increases. From the very moment we are born, we start living life, we start to adjust and compromise and learn how to deal with things. This thing continues till we die, Other than that the small happiness in life is family, friends and fun we have. This will be hardly One third of our total Living hours. An average human spent's more than half of his life working / trying to earn money. Whatever he earned, he wont be able to spend this on him, he has to spent on his family, relatives, friends, rent, mortgage and what not. Relationship is something which keeps life Cycle balanced, but when compared to a Single human being's life all these becomes burdens to. All of us are burden to each other in one way or other. May be i am wrong, but what i have seen and what i have learned is:

Work hard and earn, get married, have kids, welcome oldage, Dream about things which you haven't achieved and things you have achieved, Diseases (Optional), Wait for the Final call(Call from God), Embrace the earth.

I believe this is the life style of every human being or may be more than 3/4th of the Humans. In the end, when you look back:
what is that you achieved?
What good you have done to others?
What was the purpose of living?

Living being or Living-being is all the same.

On a day to day life, we do planning. Some do short term planning, some prefer planning in long term and some others are very clear about what they want to do and plan for their entire life.  Not all these plans gets executed and infact most of them become big Flop. But the planning phase never stops, why are we becoming Schemers? Are we happy after being a Schemer? I don't think so. May be the Almighty has Designed us in a way that we are never 100% happy about anything. This makes us the unique species.

Forget a single human, if we consider a community also there is the same problem. Caste wise, religion wise, region wise, Country wise, politically etc. But what is the outcome of this hatred which we had developed due to the selfishness?

Being the most intelligent and sophisticated species, Humans have achieved no happiness, but some way of making one self believe that "This is happiness". "Life is beautiful " is a quote which is Irony at times, i mean most of the times.

 Man vs Nature

Nature is also angry at us, the recent earthquakes and Tsunami warnings are good example. We destroyed nature to build buildings and many other things. Every time we say we achieved something, we never realized what we are loosing. Now earth is in a unstable state. The recent earth quake warnings are a very good example. "The world will come to an END" may or may not be true. But the recent happenings should be a good lesson for people to learn about some love. Whatever so called achievements we have is like an Oasis. We got a life which is undefined, it have only a Singin option and no Sign out option, unlike our Login screens. Once in you are Signed in (born) try to live life happily, find happiness in every small good deeds. Forget about your worries and try to lead a happy life. Instead of becoming a schemer planning big things and dying to earn money to make that plan happen, Live life happily, it may not be a 100% planned way, but definitely there will be happiness. Once you Sign out or your Session expires (die), then you don't have a chance to rethink.

Live life like a Man, Not like a Schemer.

Great post! Lots of take aways :)
When we rush to office/ school / college in the mornings, we do forget that life is indeed beautiful.
Completely agree with the instances you mentioned on why it is ironical to say life is beautiful... :|
