Suddenly there was a problem in the man's life. Not the usual one but a situation wherein moving in any direction appeared to be interwoven with endless problems and no meaning to the future life hitherto thought of..

As helplessness and dullness took over the man instantly, the Nature around too looked totally non supportive and he felt CLEAN BOWLED at one stroke in his life with..

  • The East appearing as the point of constant sun rise for days coming up with nothing more to offer.. 
  • The West showing up the repetitive sun settings day after day without any new in the offing.. 
  • The North carrying no great promise other than the seasonal winds blowing with intermittent gusts.. 
  • The South equally appearing dull with no silver lining seen for long in the dark clouds in distance.. 
  • The Mother Earth seen so much loving till then retaining absolutely silence.. And 
  • The Gods above too seemed totally vanished from the skies! 
Seen thus, instantly there was only one way out for the man..

Close the eyes and curse, curse and curse himself and everything around eternally!

But strangely, at that moment alone it happened.. And sure as it had to happen, so it happened.. That's what we call many times.. The blessing in disguise!

There was straight away question in the man..

"Why not directly look at the problem itself whatever be for a while?"

A great courage came up all of a sudden in him and in front of that courage, the very problem soon started melting away with it's layers peeling off one by one. And the layers thus fallen aside seemed lost all that terrorizing influence in no time..

What's left then? Fully peeled off the last layer fell dead and

It was simply nothing.. The menacing problem.. Absolutely nothing the next moment!

That was a genuine indication of the beginning of an entirely new life in the man..

A challenge.. Yes.. Truly a life of challenge with the weakening elements around seen crystal clear and the way to address them too seen doubly clear..

That way was purely nothing but a set of activities which involved basically
  • Behaving impartially in the situation,
  • Extending minimum support to/participation in all the enjoyment activities for the psychological well-being of the self and others involved, 
  • Diverting those saved energies for the constructive work and welfare activities required at the moment,
  • Taking coming up ups and down with as much cool as feasible
  • Stop bothering for the criticisms and getting elated by praises coming up in the process and finally
  • All along living thru' a prayerful attitude! 
Sure a SIXER to be aimed at in one's life of games to achieve one's goal to perfection!

The great zeal in life thus returned in total and along with that the next moment,

  • The East shone brighter with the rising Sun.. 
  • The West welcomed with its golden hues spread out.. 
  • The Northern wind just turned to a cool and soothing breeze.. 
  • The Western clouds showed up with their distinct silver lining.. 
  • Mother Earth turned Herself cool and all loving as usual.. 
  • Gods from Above smiled and blessed the Brave Soul.. 
And the man was all ready to hit a CENTURY in every life game that would be coming up to him in future with 'NIL' doubt in his mind!
