Grief is defined as sorrow, anguish, pain, misery, unhappiness, heartache etc...
The whole world is experiencing a very fast phase of development. During the last two decades it has grown exponentially and is still growing. We are living in a developed world. Due to this growth, the world has shrunk and has become a global village.
A few years ago, we struggled to communicate, commute and carry goods from one place to another, but all these have been possible and easy through technological advancements. The world is at our finger tips today, thanks to internet and mobile phones … the digital age. We have managed to tame the outer world at the expense of some trade-offs which is within us. These characteristics have been eluded and moved away from us.

Sympathy, empathy, love, care and humanity have but all disappeared from us. Our life style, dietary habits, clothes and thoughts have changed so much in the name of globalisation that today we are facing many ill-effects, especially health wise- mentally and physically.

Despite being surrounded by all these "mod cons" yet we are still suffering. Our pains, miseries and wants are all increasing thus causing us severe harms. Everyone has split personality, disruptive thoughts, tensions and anxieties. Everyone is living in fear, dilemma and desperation.

If poor people are sad because of poverty, lack of money etc.. and sick persons are sad because of lack of medicines, these can be understood and accepted. But if someone with all resources, money and education is sad then life is questionable. Lots of educated people who are also rich tend to develop suicidal tendencies and divorce rate is high amongst them.

Today society has so many different problems. Attempts are being made to find solutions, but it is necessary to find the root cause of these problems. Abnormality of thoughts and abnormal thoughts are the main reason of all miseries and diseases.

Introspection is the foundation of character and character develops one's behavior and personality. Persons make family, families form society and societies make nations.

We should stress on technical and vocational education. Education for fashion, modernity and science all have importance in our daily life, but our education should develop a balanced personality. This education should teach us how to face difficulties of life and live life to its fullest. It should develop humanity within us.

American author, Dale Carnegie, in his book, wrote -"Once six people died of plague in the streets of New York (US). One thousand government officers started explaining to people how to save from plague. On seeing this our eyes were filled, you will be thinking that government officers are doing a good thing, then why are we not happy? We were sad because when six people died from plague, thousand officers started explaining people how to save themselves from this disease. But when lakhs of people are living in anxiety and people are dying prematurely, still there is no government intervention to promote healthy living free from stress and anxiety."

Today health and good thinking are rare. We eat regularly to be alive, similarly to add zing to our life good thinking is extremely important. Cool, creative and good thinking mind are the foundations of healthy and balanced life. If you want to live a happy, stress free and healthy life, make good thinking your inner companion.
