Lesson to be Learnt in Life!


No medical treatment can keep one alive forever;
No wealth accrued can go with one after death and
Nations and wealth can't be carried away by hands!

So decreed Alexander to be inscribed on his tomb;
He got the wisdom after tried to conquer India, where
He could not answer a question asked by someone!

That question was 'You first conquer Self and then
You can conquer the whole world; can you do it....? '
This wise meaningful words led to his death knell...!

Whatever things we do in this world are for this world;
We cannot carry anything with us after death ever.....;
So, let us do the best thing for the world to remember us!

Desiring what we deserve let us do our duties here
And there lies peace, happiness and satisfaction ever!

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
