Rich man and the peace of mind

Technorati Tags: ,,,,,

Riches do make a man happy as his means and resources are unlimited but the question mark lies in whether he really has enough peace of mind to feel away from intrigues of tension and strain. A popular narration from the stories on dialogues between king Akbar and his great advisor Birbal talks of a labourer in deep slumber on a rock after toiling hard the whole day for his livelihood. King Akbar raised a question as to how come this poor man can afford any sleep on otherwise too uneven and prickly hot a rock. Birbal's reply was that this man has much better a sleep degree of which no kings and maharajas can afford for the simple reason that they they don't have the peace of mind this man has. 'Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown' is the saying and this is what draws the difference between the rich and the poor. Lakshmi Mittal, the richest Indian in U.K. declared as such consecutively for the 5th time even after his riches dwindled downward by a whopping amount of 16.9 billion pounds must be most happy a man on his distinction as a rich most person in the country but his business worries must be haunting him all the time forbidding him the peace an ordinary person has. Measured in terms of peace, those away from power and pelf have much better a share of it.
