ON FAITH AND PRESEVERANCE

Living as he does in this cruel, sinful and selfish world, he is subjected to constant trials and tribulations. In consequence, his endeavors are nipped; plans, flouted; aspirations, blasted; and actions, condemned. Beset with such dastardly evil forces, man often tends to lose faith in himself and thinks of cessation of all activities. Gradually, he grows sickly and finally becomes a parasite-a great' burden on society. And a problem to live; for, he fails in all. Failure saps his energy and carries him to the grave.

If his faith is fortified by perseverance, all his problems and failures dissolve in themselves. Perseverance is fed on faith, but it is mightier than its mother and hence achieves more than the mother. Proper co-ordination of the two will round up the arc of man's life, here.

Perseverance is a sonorous word. Though musical, it taxes the tongue. As it is tough in composition, so is its connotation. 'Firmness' is its simplified one word definition. It connotes remaining steadfast to resolutions arrived at, after profound thought, and deep discussion, and to stand against the challenging odds. One should stick on to one's decisions under the most trying circumstances without any idea of cutting short the plans half-way, or tending to alter the decisions as dictated by the threatening forces. Change of mind, or lack of steadiness speaks one's inability to cope up with the situation. Indeed it is a mark of weakness, or the visible symptom of cowardice. It one persists in executing his projects, in spite of adverse circumstances, he is entitled to success. So his persistence must be consistent.
