The Unending Quest

 
Ratan Das (Author)
Synopsis

Events that chased human life from time to time had been a source of learning for all. Those events also helped us to face sorrows and delights with equal vigor and serenity. We often forget that life resolves around sorrow and delight. It is wise to accept them both with equal commitment. Because both of them are needed to improve the quality of life. Both of them play a major role in maintaining the equilibrium of life.

Biographies are not simply narrations of some event of one's life. Human society is interested with those events those are associated with social commitment or with any ethical performance. Biographies incorporate certain ideas linked with human sympathy and social relevance. It reveals certain efforts, good or bad done with the objective of doing good to human society. With these efforts one may not attain perfection but can proceed towards the path of fulfillment.

Aspiring for love of others has always been a supreme achievement. We must make efforts to gather love through the events of life. The secret is that we must reciprocate hatred with love, so that we can get a vision of discovering goodness lies in every heart. This discovery will not doubt eliminate human animosity from this strive stricken world.
