Every cloud has a silver lining; night always ends with day; there is always a bright side to things and for the same reason cancer too comes with its perks. Suddenly you are living it up in fast forward and bucket lists have to be mustered out of the depths of your heart ( point to note- mine is a F-it list), dusted and sifted through and despite the zombiness caused by your situation,you find yourself taking exotic holidays, sipping glorious drinks, eating fancy meals, spending time with people – with a grin as wide as you can stretch your mouth. All in the name of cancer. Priority in queues. Priority at the bank. Priority in the passport office. Priority seating. Priority allocation. Flexible working hours. Perks every where. Just because you are terminal. But isn’t that the only surety of life? Isn’t all life terminal?
