Live The Life of Your Choice
Human life is a strange phenomenon of mysteries, ups and downs, pleasure and pain, joys and sorrows and similar other favourable and unfavourable experiences of varied nature. It portrays different forms and shapes to different people. All human beings differ from one another in some way or the other and no two human beings live life exactly in the same way. But two things
are common to all beings, they are born one day and they have to die on another day. What happens in between these two days, makes different and strange stories.
Most human beings tread on the dotted lines, without knowing or even bothering to know about the art or manner of living life. They go on living, as if they are mere puppets in the hands of some mysterious great power, invisible but all-pervading and all powerful. In general, life for an average person is not a very desirable state of living, considering that human species is on top of all creation.
