Uncountable waves of lives emerge out of and submerge back into the eternal ocean of Nature. The March of Life records none of these into its incessant flow. Rare are those divine should, whose lives engrave immortal imprints in the glorious chapters of human history. Few years of their life-spans stand as beacons of light, faith and inspiration in the annals of humanity
Ethics of humanity teach us that - "an altruistic life of a poor man is far more blissful and liberated than that of a mighty king", and sacrificing self interest is always superior to oppressing others". Though these ethical values have been preached throughout the ages, only a few have lived them. It is the inner strength of such great characters, which has upheld the edifice of morality age after age.
Talent, skill, perseverance, wisdom, charisma, and courage are necessary for nurturing aplomb and self-esteem. Leading others too cannot be effective and inspiring without inculcation in one self the requisite virtues and attributes. Those devoid of such potentials cannot vaunt of altruist renunciation. Dullness and lethargy cannot masquerade as austerity, contentment and peace. How can the glow of moral eminence shine in the darkness of ignorance and inactivity? Great are those who, despite being endowed with brilliant talents, courage and strength, do not waste their precious efforts in the pursuit of egoistic aims. Their sagacity and potentials are creatively used towards the welfare and evolution of humanity.
Ideals must not be compromised to suit the weakness of our wavering minds, nor can they be put on as mere masks. The peaks of immortal glory cannot be conquered without traversing through the Everest of perennially uplifting values.
