Ce La Vie....!!!

The post title "Ce La Vie" literally translates as "That is the life" and means the same as the English phrase "That's life", meaning "sometimes, things happen,as much as we try to avoid them, and we just have to accept them".
Though I have been aware of this phrase since a long time,an incident on a recent trip confirmed to me that events in our life are really not in our control!

So it happened that I was on a first time visit to Hyderabad.As a part of the city tour,me and my companion,a friend of mine were walking around the Salar Jung Museum,which is known for its collection of sculptures, paintings, carvings, textiles, manuscripts, ceramics, metallic artefacts, carpets, clocks, and furniture from various countries around the world.

The flooring and staircases in most of the museum is of polished marble,which can be slippery.Knowing this,I was being very careful while walking down a flight of stairs and even told my friend to be extremely careful.Looking down and walking,being cautious as to not fall,I don't know how I still slipped my footing and came down the steps landing on my back.Well,the fall was painful,and it was painkillers and other measures which made me alright after some days.

But what struck me the most was the fact,that I fell,after making every attempt to not fall.Maybe,because it was meant to be that way....and that's how life is.....what is meant to happen will happen anyway,what makes it difficult is our acceptance to it!

I still do not easily accept most of the occurrences in my life,but I am slowly and surely learning my lessons...what to do....Ce La Vie!!!!

P.S..attached is the image of the museum where I fell..be careful on the steps if you visit;);)
