Health Is Wealth - Poem by Raja Basu

Health is our most precious wealth, I hope you agree
No doubt, health is the sweetest fruit of our life’s tree.
Money is certainly important, and so is social prestige

But it is a good health that is the source of a constant bliss.
You may have the money to tour the world, but can’t if your health does not permit
You can buy all the food of the world, but your bad health will not let you eat.
You might have huge honor in the city, with everybody bowing before you

But you will fail to enjoy it, if you regularly develop health problems new.
In this way the bad health will always play a serious bar
In the way of your enjoying what you have, wealth, house or car.

On the other hand the good health is a source of constant happines
That will automatically turn your life into one of charm, pleasure and grace.
Take good care of your health, and develop a body that is sound and strong

And ensure a life that is happy and charming, besides being long.

    What is good for health -
    Natural air or AC one...?
    Junk food is good for
    One travelling long...;
    But fresh food is good
    Ever for health in life!

    Technology and greed
    confine one in inside
    And never allows one
    To see ouside world!
    Material world has
    Made all live not
    Real life or natural one
    But only artificial or
    Just a mechanical life!

    The more we go for
    Comforts and luxury,
    The more lose we good
    Health and life ever!

    to the japanese, money is OKANE, which means money is health, the true wealth. (Report) Reply

    When wealth is lost something is lost
    When health is lost everything is lost.
