What Is Life? - Poem by Ramesh T A

Everyone should ask, 'What is life? ' to know it.
'What does life mean? ' Everyone should think!

Does life mean wealth and comfort in the world?
Does life mean kin and affection in the community?
Does life men power and authority in governance?
Or what else does life mean in the world we live in?

Human life is existence, knowledge, bliss and absolute
Says Bhagavad Gita in the great epic, Mahabharata!
Human life is dharma, wealth, bliss and abode says
Sage Thiruvalluvar in his Thirukkural next in India!

Life is knowledge, survival, pleasure and salvation say
I based on my conviction pondering over all scriptures!
Life is knowledge, vision, ambition and achievement
Finally say I to attain fulfilment in world life to all ever!
