Sometimes we are so confined to our knowledge that we are stuck there. I was listening to something interesting and it was certainly food for thought.
We are often told "Dil dhadakne do", else we exist no more. Have we ever thought over it? Does life really not exist when the heart is not beating?
On the very first go our thought is "no heart, no life", that is what we have been thought in schools. Now let's dig in a little.
A zygote is known as life in the mother's womb or the beginning of a human. A zygote is the union of the sperm cell and the egg cell. Now, this zygote lives in the mother's body without a heart for around 20 days. The heart starts to beat only after that. Now the very funda of life is questionable with that. :)
When life's funda can change, so can anything, we just got to be open to things beyond known.
