E R RAMACHANDRAN forwards a forward that should be unapologetically forwarded becaue it is a paragraph by the great Aruthur Ashe that explains one of life’s greatest questions in the simplest way possible.
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed :
“Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?”
To this, Ashe replied: “The world over 5 crore children start playing tennis; 50 lakh learn to play tennis; 5 lakh learn professional tennis; 50,000 come to the circuit; 5000 reach the grand slam; 50 reach Wimbledon; 4 to semi-final; 2 to the finals, When I was holding a Cup I never asked God “Why me?”. And today in pain I should not be asking God, “Why me?”
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure Keeps you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing
But only God Keeps you going..
