Can you buy a Starry Night?

Without Money life will be like a flower without fragrance, a sun without rays, a bird without wings, the earth without atmosphere, and a human being without blood.

— Suresh Padmanabhan

Have you ever seen the night sky closely? A spectacular carpet of stars besides a singular moon glitters throughout the night to give way to the rising Sun at dawn. Our Earth is also one of God’s most wonderful and beautiful creations. Gushing waterfalls, towering mountains, dense forests and the rich and colourful flora and fauna make for a truly fantastic picture. It is as though the entire cosmos has put up a ‘sound and light’ spectacle and a live orchestra just for us free of cost.

Remember some of the best things in life still come free. How many of us take time to enjoy and appreciate this beauty? Do we stop to catch the last glimpses of a setting Sun or steal some moments to go and see it rise on the horizon? Don’t we take all this for granted? What if an administrator comes from the heaven to collect a sunlight tax or a full moon tax or a starlit night tax? It is time to wake up and look at the grandeur on display — available for all of us and yet free! God has been kind to us… let him not regret it. There is life with Money and there is equally a life beyond Money. Start Enjoying. God Bless.
