DP Daily Prompt: No Longer A Mere Mortal Post by Ranu

The Daily Prompt about ‘Not a mere Mortal’,sounds good.I have a problem with it. It is highly doubtful to attain immortality easily. I am a mere mortal.I can try but to be immortal, by doing what? This is my question.

When I think of immortality I think of Iqbal,Gandhi,Rabindranath Tagore,Shakespeare and so many others. They did not decide they will become immortal overnight. I don’t think they were trying to be either. It is their hard work,their dedication, their endless fight to achieve the truth at the time, that made them immortal.

They are therefore remembered by all of humanity. They were role models. Their work was appreciated.There are people who are trying to follow in their footsteps. It hasn’t made them immortal. It is a very steep mountain to climb. Not everyone can go that far up.

How many have climbed Mount Everest? Not that many! Therefore I can only say,I have neither the tools,nor the enthusiasm,like all those great men to be able to come even a centimetre close to them. I am not a defeatist,I am practical. Therefore for me it is an unachievable feat!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank God for those who have climbed the highest mountain, and returned to the rest of us in the valley, to guide us along the right path.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. Immortal are those men who loved other men more than themselves, this love showed in their actions and deeds, some more name to add to your list may be Rumi, Nizamuddin Aulia, Hazrat Ali Hajvari , Rabia Basri……

    • Yes one has to reach a certain height to be viewed as immortal.The amount of sacrifice and dedication requires a lot of work and selflessness.Those who are immortal have worked for mankind.Regular people are only worried about themselves.
      Regards,
      Chaman
