A Psalm Of Life

                                                              Copyright- Mr. Raghu Rai

To all those who spend time these days bickering about the good/evil wrought by one man on their cherished world-view, H.W.Longfellow had perhaps the best riposte :

In the world's broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife! 
Trust no Future, howe'er pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,--act in the living Present!
Heart within, and God o'erhead!
