Let's take this line from the book by John Green- "I like my choices". And hence I like "The fault in our stars". The title has been taken from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar", wherein Cassius, a part of Caesar's assassination plan says, "The fault,dear Brutus,is not in our stars,but in ourselves". However, John Green contradicts to this statement,writing: "There is a plenty of fault in our stars. The world is profoundly an unjust place in which suffering is unfairly distributed".

Stars have come before humans. They scattered themselves everywhere and this is how our fate has been framed. 

How does it feel when we know that we are going to die soon? The day we know this, we die everyday since then. And then in those "numbered days", someone holds our hands. And that someone is a step ahead of us on the same path. There'd no point in crying on the unfairly distributed stars. All we can do is get our questions answered, do all that we can do when we are alive,because there is no such thing other than "life", and then one fine day, we can also listen to an eulogy and a dirge of our own death just before we die. This is the moment we realize, what a slut time is!

In these "numbered days", something called "LOVE" rules our heart. That special person gives us a "forever" in these "numbered days". Isn't it amazing when someone knows how valuable our dreams are? Irony is, we humans love faking around. If we read the same book,umpteen number of times just to get few answers out of it,people would call us insane. We sometimes dream to visting someone who is just out of reach. But one special makes that dream conme true. again, irony is, people would say- "Great dream! But it is just a dream, and it comes true when you are asleep".

It's not about getting attacked by a deadly disease to realize how important life is. It;s about being a bit unconditional, selfless and whole-hearted at some phase of life; no matter how sick or how healthy we are. afterall, we are born for something and someone besides ourselves.
