I grew up in what I believe to be the most amazing city If you haven't been here, it's such a pity I was born in Bombay All along, and to this day Distance is measured rather uniquely It's only an estimate and cannot be done precisely While the rest of the country and the world have definite units I think we are the wisest of them all; please hear my two bits While the remainder of our country measures distance in kilometers On the most expensive currency, we prefer to run our meter Don't believe me? Ask anyone in Mumbai how far is a place In approximate minutes, their reply they will base Sure, it's a fast paced city, but we've got it right Because we run on deadlines that are tight Time is the most expensive currency in the world And that is what I recently realized and learned Once you begin to count your time as currency That's when you'll yearn for more and begin to spend it wisely But this currency is rather unique Limited to single usage with no tweaks At least with money, you can probably earn it back But wasted time never stops or returns to those tracks Although people say time is money Time is actually more valuable than any currency So, if you waste your time, that's part of your life your'e never getting back You cannot purchase, earn, accrue, create, or distribute time; that's quite a drawback Even the richest or the most intelligent person cannot buy back this commodity Irrespective of gender, social, racial, economic status, it is distributed unto all, equally Time bows down to no man It's circle is elite, and no other is part of this clan Always value the people who give you their time It's a portion of their life, far more valuable than dimes In that sense, nobody really is too busy It just depends upon the number of your priority Since time is far more valuable than money People will only spend it on someone worth their pennies Time is also relative; and this is absolutely true When your'e broke or miserable, time is all you've got to do But, even then, if you use it wisely Things can eventually turn around nicely As significant as it may be, you must not overvalue time Because some things are meant to be experienced in your prime Likewise, what is the value of money if you're left with no time? Planning, scheming, and forecasting without a proper mealtime Value your time; value your money But at the end of the day, nobody wants to feel lonely Everyone wants to spend their time with worthy company Because love, peace, and joy are worth far more than this currency
