It is a book about some of my favorite topics- the fleeting nature of time, the futility in basing all your hopes and happiness around something in the future that may or may not take place, and weather a man needs to start a family to be happy.
It captures the transient nature of time really well. We are there with Drogo when he is a young officer just starting his career and his entire life lies before him, and he is not much careful about being caught unawares though he is repeatedly warned by his seniors, much like any young person. When he does realise how the tables have turned, it is too late- his entire life has been spent waiting. With nothing at all going on in his life, except a hope for a future that never seems to arrive, his days pass so quickly. My quarantined self can relate to this, though mine is on a much smaller temporal scale. His old friends from his hometown have their progeny and their buisinesses, which testify for them that their lives have not been for nothing, that they have created something through which they will keep on living after their death, that they have altered the world from how they found it, if only by a very small amount. Drogo has none of this. For all that is worth, he might as well have never existed, he has nothing which he can see as the result of the fervour of his youth, he might as well have never been young- again a feeling to which I can relate. His case is much worse than someone who might have had a career and a wife and children and who lost them to some accident, because such a person at least has the memories. He dies all alone at a roadside inn, with nobody to cry at his bedside and leaving behind nobody and nothing- a death befitting his life.
Another thing is how quickly a man is thrown out from a world he has inhabited for so long, if he be absent for a fraction of period that he has been there. When Drogo returns to his hometown after four years, only four years, compared to the twenty he spent there, he finds himself an outcast. Except his mother, nobody waits for him, nobody has kept a hole in their heart in the place that he might have occupied before leaving, instead that place has been filled up by the multitude of people who are present there. When he comes back he finds there is no place for him, even his lover has moved on. We are all so replaceable, except maybe to our parents, and I would like to think one or two of those we consider our friends.
And the worst part is when the hope Drogo based his entire empty existence upon, is belied. It shows the futility of disregarding your present as anything important for something in the future, no matter if it is remote or at hand, the future is always uncertain.
It is also worth noting how it is never too late to bring a change in your life. The doctor says that its too late for him to get a transfer after spending 25 years at the Fort goes on to spend the larger part of his exile after mentioning this fact.
It is a harrowing portrayal of what happens when you don't take the stock of your days, keep on waiting and waiting, think that you can afford to squander the time of your youth in waiting, live for some time in the future and not in the present and don't create anything with the energy of your youth, not even memories.

This is a wonderful book that focuses on how we choose to give meaning to our lives. This book came just in the right time for me, and I believe it helped me take some important life decisions. ( )

Probably my favorite book of all time. When I first read this book, it stayed with for such a long time. I empathized so much with Drogo - his feelings of leaving home, being homesick while still amazed and afraid of what lies ahead.

I really like the debate that it has over being familiar and comfortable with the simple life. Not being caught on false promises of greatness and chasing an eternal goal, only to see that what was good and true was left behind. Chapter 5 is probably the one that best touches on this subject - and probably is the best on the book.

It's a book to read many, many times. ( )

Zitate
Vielleicht geht es uns immer so: Wir glauben uns von vertrauten Geschöpfen umgeben, aber in Wirklichkeit sind dort nur Eis und Steine, die eine fremde Sprache sprechen. Wir wollen den Freund begrüßen, aber der Arm sinkt wie gelähmt, un das Lächeln erstirbt, weil uns klar wird, daß wir völlig allein sind.
