“What will you do with more money? Basically, what I feel is that man forgets that he will die one day.” the chief guest at one show said. “We must lead a simple life,” he said.
Suddenly, I started thinking about it. Really it is a matter of concern, what will we do with more money than required for our basic needs? What will we do with more clothes? What will we do with bigger houses if a small single home can fulfill our requirements?
Yes, we need to be passionate and competitive about our work, but that doesn’t mean we should run for the money. Money is necessary but not beyond a specific limit.
