ON CONTENTMENT AND AMBITION

Having achieved the object of revenge, it should keep aloof from such abhorrent ways adopted by the erst-while victor. But this phenomenon is a rarity. It is honored in breach than in practice. Hence the recurrence of the old story-the vicious circle goes revolving about without a halt, or rest. Well, the world is then no place for living, nor the mankind is fit to be called sane. For, the jungle-law 'blood for blood', 'eye of eye', 'tooth for tooth' etc., return to restore its damnable sway.

If revenge, blood-shed and hatred are ousted and uprooted once for all, a new era of peace dawns. It brings with it, contentment and compassion. If once they are ushered in, despair loses its grip, failure its colour, frustration its weight and self-condemnation its existence. 'Love then gets consecrated and enthroned magnificently. Soon, regard, honesty, hospitality and tranquility will be found much sought after, like the legal tender currency notes for the benefit of the community . Nothing now goes amiss, nor does anything tend to exceed its modest boundaries. Peace fills your heart and plenty greets your sight everywhere. This state, understand, is the outcome of the annihilation of ambition, say in its decomposed state.
