INHERITANCE

Man has inherited amazingly immense wealth-
from his mom - mother earth.
From his dad - the valient sun
man wants to inherit the moon.
What right does man have over the moon?
Would man tell the moon-
'Whatever abundant helium you have is not yours-
it is my dads'
[the sun's rays have deposited this helium on the moon]
How is man so sure that the moon has no children for inheritance?
Man to fulfil his needs will inherit anything from anywhere-and
amazingly he will call himself scientific too.

{If man wants to leave behind anything as inheritance to the coming
generations- the helium content from the moon would be the best to give - DR. ABDUL KALAM}

    Great poem. Man's desire to possess all leads to unquenchable search for new grounds. In other to inherit all, new discoveries are made daily.

    Sky is the limit for the advancement of science and technology. No wonder, if man settles himself in the moon or mars in course of time.

    I love to read items that have real meanings to impart to the public. Pieces
    that have something to say have added value in my view. This piece is not
    just about the subject it addresses, it can apply to a wide array of things as
    well. I liked it.
