Competition, the race of life
Competition, a word which etymologically means the activity or condition of striving to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others. It is used by one and all . Competition begins even before one’s birth. Sperms compete with each other for fertilization. The winner sperm finally after undergoing nine months of maturation is born as a baby.
In school,we compete to get good grades, in college we do so to get good job and in life we compete to be successful. But what is all this competition for?? When a baby is born he or she is born naked and when one dies all the wealth, riches, name and fame we competed for is left behind on this earth.
On glancing back, we find that all our competition gets wasted in the long run. In life, we should compete to do good deeds, help the poor and the needy. The race of life has become very materialistic today. To win the race of life one must be helpful,loving and patient towards all. These good deeds are our real wealth as they help us attain happiness in other people’s lives.
