  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    With Age comes the Experience and Expertise. Most importantly, it empowers one with a clear vision to see through the hour glass of life, as more sand has already escaped through it with time. Like an early morning dream, life becomes brighter, clearer, and much less mysterious the longer one lives. It's also the wonderful phase of crisp creativity and innovative inventions, in my view, because even the crooked paths start to appear straighter the longer one travels on those. Just like wine, even people mature with age, and offer their best to the world, more so than ever before. Cheers to Age, and exceptional Experience that comes with it!
