"Life is power, power is not life."
By Hriday Anand Patgiri.
To be famous; what is it? Is it a quality gifted by god or is it earned by the deeds of a person.
There are two ways to become famous. The first way is to do evil things to the human society and terrorize them to earn name and fame. This way the person becomes famous for short period of time.
The second way is to do good and needful things to the human society and civilization. The best way of becoming famous will only be judged by time.
Time is such a force that has the power to punish anyone. In past, there were many kings and emperors but due to their evil deeds they were punished by time and thus their names were lost some where in the horizon of time. But the kings and emperors who had done great works to the human society had been remembered through ages to come. For example Emperor Asoka, who wanted to rule the world, changed his way of living and started doing things for the betterment of human society. Thus his name is still remembered in this world of computers and information technology.
Life is very short. Days are numbered by nights. A person can only be famous and remembered by ages to come if he is successful in keeping his footsteps protected in the sand of time or he will be lost forever in time. The persons who have done good deeds for the human society can be successful in keeping their footsteps protected in the sand of time.
A person to be famous and liked by all must understand the true meaning of life. He should know that God is supreme and giving life (birth) and taking away life (death) are decided and controlled by God only.
We should follow the footsteps of Great People to be famous and successful in life.
To have a progressive life and to become famous, we should not be jealous to the other fellow human beings achievements. History gives us various kinds of evidences that jealousy and overconfidence are the root cause in the downfall of many societies.
All the human beings are formed from all the same basic components. But only few human beings become famous. This is because of their developed mind. Mind can only be developed when a person gets proper education both in formal and spiritual knowledge.
The people who have material comfort and money are not the persons who will be famous for a long period of time. There were many political leaders, with both money and power. This people excelled fame for a transient period. But their downfall made them unknown in short period of time.
In the other hand, Swami Vivekananda who did not had material comfort or money became famous for forever due to his high spirituality and uplifting of entire human society of the world for democracy.
We should remember; " Life is a valuable gift, we should not waste it."
