AN IDLE BRAIN IS DEVIL’S WORKSHOP

If a room remains vacant no one cleans it and it is full of dust, insects, webs and rats. It has a vicious atmosphere. That is true of a man’s brain too. If it is not occupied by positive thoughts and is not busy in studying, writing, planning for life and the nation it is like that vacant room. Vicious forces would gradually occupy it and Satan would gain entry. He would leave the devil there to reign supreme.

If a man’s brain is not busy making gainful programmes about himself, his profession, his family or the society or the nation, it surrenders before the devil. The devil invokes in him all that is vicious and evil how to be rich in a short time and he may be a part of the different scams going on in the country. He may think of becoming a member of a group of smugglers. If weak in sex he may start planning how to molest the girl in the neighbourhood. If he doesn’t think about his own fortune he is sure to think of the downfall of others. His brain becomes a workshop of debauchery, dishonesty and betrayal. Oh god don’t make anyone idle or your creation would go to dogs.
