At some time in life

Situations may become so difficult

And almost impossible to cope with

The future may become bleak

Human vision may be unrealisable

A notable businessman may go bankrupt

After recording successes for years

Crop failure, natural disasters,

Fire can raze a rich man’s landed property to the ground

Loss of valuables to men of the underworld

Demise of a helper

Can turn the joy of a man to sorrow

When the sorrow of an unpleasant incident persists

A giver can become a beggar

Little problem is not a problem

Big problem is the real problem

In any conditions or situations

Don’t despair

Don’t ever think your problems

Can never be resolved

Or that a problem has no solution

Only death has no solution

God is Omnipotent

All you need is to continue to endure

And strive in the right way

If one effort doesn’t bring you a good result

Try another one

Don’t sit back

And expect your situations to change without your personal efforts

Efforts and struggles convey prayers to God

A prayer without effort

Is like a human without a head

One day! One day!!

Your efforts will bring joy to your life

Hope is rising

While there’s life

Only the dead                                          

Is hopeless with regards to worldly affairs
