"I still believe in India of ages, but I can't grasp why Indians themselves refuses to acknowledge the greatness of their culture....." said by French author, journalist and tibetologist Claude Arpi. Mark Twain goes on to say that "India is a cultural millionaire".
Today we are living in the 21st century which is altogether a different time, it is the time of "fancier houses, but broken homes”, time of "double incomes, but more divorces", and also time where "we are fulfilled outwardly, but blank inwardly" here I shall mention one more thing for professionals like us that "we are doing our best to save the tax, but we hardly find time to save our family".
About what greatness French man would be speaking, what would have been there in India of ages? To throw light on India of the ages, there was no good technology, no luxurious life, and no good facilities then also why this francophone states such. Those were the days where our predecessors though does not have access to facilities, luxurious living or any such technology which we have accessed and got in touch with, but they succeeded in managing their homes so good that here I should say those were the days of "no fancier houses but united families", and also "no good pays and income, yet satisfied and fulfilled", here I shall also mention that there were "nothing like or very less security equipments, yet people felt secured " in those days our ancestors used to live the life guided by the moral and ethical values and also spiritually charged up that makes all difference.
It will be wise to mention the quote of Late Shri Abdul Kalam that
"Where there is righteousness in the heart, there is beauty in the character.
When there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the home.
When there is harmony in the home, there is order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there is peace in the world”
The real success of life is not just to earn good pays, good job and prestige. But the real success is when we have earned not only good pays but also earned happiness for our family, not only good job but healthy mind, and not only prestige but also thoughts free of prejudices. Also the real success is when one raises himself above the doubts about his family members or friends or relatives, feeling of insecurity, jealousy and all other negative thoughts and has converted them into faith, feeling secured, friendly feeling and other positive thoughts. By supplying attitudes of faith, friendly feeling for all and other positive thoughts to your mind it can increase energy within you, so much that it will help you attain prodigious activity by suggesting that you have ample support and resource of power.
