EASTER

 

WHAT'S NEW?

 

Yet another Easter is upon us.  Many people take this time to enjoy a hard earned break and go to far away places for camping or to chill out. Very few take this time to ponder the meaning of this partivular event called Easter. Many people rush to church, many rush to the beach depending on your weather. Whatever one does, there is a hidden mystery behind the Easter story.

Personally, I am not a big fan of the Easter story(may appear to be an irony), but as the time went by and experiences grew, I had to rethink many things that I adhered to in the past and Easter is one of them. I have nothing against people who strongly believe that Jesus experienced a physical rising from the dead and He appeared to many disciples. Faith is what it makes you to believe. We need faith to survive in this strange world. 

For many Easter is a mystery. Fortunately, Easter eggs are not a mystery and by now you would have swallowed quite few of them too! Yes some people look forward to Easter because the Easter Bunny is out there or there will be hunting for eggs. The significance of Easter lies in the determination to be different from the past, different from yesterday, different from last week. We need to be different every day. May the catchphrase in us this Easter be, 'what's new in me today?'

God bless                           KARIMPINKALA.
