Dr. Ramesh Richard
A spiritual philosopher, Dr. Ramesh Richard speaks on the ultimate issues of life to tens of thousands of people around the globe each year. He clarifies the message of God and the meaning of the Bible to wide-ranging audiences-from Harvard to Haiti, from Prime Ministers of nations to the masses in them, from gatherings of a few to a hundred thousand. He has been given the opportunity of speaking good news and providing personal hope for people in over 70 countries. An inspirational speaker and graduate school professor, Dr. Richard has earned two doctoral degrees-a Th.D. (in systematic theology) from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. (in philosophy) from the University of Delhi. He has also authored several books including "Soul Passion", "Soul Mission" and "Soul Vision".
The cartoonist was playing a joke with words and concepts. He felt he was unable to do all the things that God wanted him to do because there were a set number of things that he felt he had to do in this life. Since he was so busy and behind, there would be no way by which he could die, before he did his number of things. George Santayana, the Harvard philosopher, said, "There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval."
I wish we knew the number of things we have to do. That is the unknown quantity. None of us is promised tomorrow. We don't know if we have already accomplished all the things we ought to do. Perhaps, we are already living in bonus time.
