"कालाय तस्मै नमः"
Right from the inception of the world, and the universe at large, if there is anything that has moved only in the forward direction, then it is the sole entity called "time". Everyone and everything is a slave to time, for it teaches us to love, to work, to hate, to regret, and to live. "Kalaya Tasmai Namah" translates to mean that "we have to surrender to time eventually". Whatever is our achievement or success, we ought to surrender to time, for it cannot be bought or sold. As with an individual's actions and deeds, time stands as the best witness for it makes sure that what goes around comes back soon, and sometimes in abundance. There is a saying in Kannada, "Kaala... Ellara kaalu yelithade kaala!" which translates to mean, "time will bring every individual to the ground when needed". Time should be revered, and one must respect it in order to bear its fruits.
