Even this challenging situation would ease
Our parents will take care of us during our childhood and see that we will get educated and get into a job. From then onwards we will live on our own and support our family. We will get married and then children. We work hard and take care of other dependents. These are the productive years in our life. We will get respected by many as long as we support them and help them. Once we reach our superannuation age we will retire from the job and our earning potential will come down. We will not have any work to do and we may be liked by our family members or may not be. We will not be having anything to say that we are required. So we should keep ourselves active and see that we are not dependent on somebody. Then definitely we will enjoy living and if the same status continues even above 100 years also is welcome. Otherwise, we will become a burden to others and we may experience hell on the earth.
The author has wished to live beyond a century and he has asked us if we also want to live more than a hundred years. I think good health is necessary for long life. If a person becomes a burden on others that all family members begin to wish that the old bed-ridden person should die soon, this type of long life is not welcomed, however, if a person lives hundred years or more than a hundred years he must be able to do his work I stead of being a burden on others.
But nobody can predict how long each of us will live on this planet.
