It is pleasant to maintain mental aspiration!
It is pleasant to do charity
…after knowing the ways and
means of one’s oncoming income!
It is pleasant to maintain
…mental aspiration of not having
partiality in favor of somebody!
It is pleasant to live with not much
…indifference by not doing as he likes
even it results lots in his favor!
