       MAN DOES NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE

Man is a being with multifarious tastes and interests. He towers over other animals in the shades of sentiments, emotions and suffers from tensions too. He is the only homosapien creature in the world using his mental faculty. Thus unlike other animals who have a tendency to keep them alive by securing food man does not live on bread alone.

Gone are the days when man had to move from one area to the other in search of food. The stone age is far behind. The migrating tendency too has come to a standstill. Today man has settled in areas of abundance and has generally not to hanker after food for his sustenance. He has grown ambitious indifferent fields far above physical sustenance. A poet lives on the fancies that he creates. A scientist lives on the research that is a life line for him. An industrialist has an aura of production around him that sustains him.

Frown at a child and give him the tastiest food. He won’t have it. His sentiments are hurt. He craves for the love and affection of his parents he lives on that. Even young men and women live on love and emotions. Saintly figures lives on his spiritual achievements. A kind hearted man may survive on the blessings at he receives from those he has helped. The kingdom of man is very wide. Every man has his own interests and faculties of mind and heart. These are more important than bread today.
