How do you select a quote from a book filled with quotable quotes and life lessons? But then, it is no ordinary book. It is one of the two Itihaasas that a Hindu has to be familiar with to understand life. It is the ‘Ramayana – The Game of Life Series’.

Every time the sun rises in the east, I am amazed at the beauty it unleashes. It’s just another day full of promises. The sun rises gently, waking up the little birds and animals.

Stop. Pause. Lets rethink our lives. Lets treat the environment as a finite source and help preserve.
