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!
