The monkeys photo reminded me of a story I heard in a recent lecture. (I may have some numbers wrong, but you get the gist)

When God created various creatures, he asked them to approve the age he planned for them.

First, he created the donkey and gave it about 30 years. The donkey said it didn't want to bear burdens for 30 years and asked for only 10 years.
Second, he created the dog and gave it about 30 years. The dog also it didn't want to run around for 30 years and asked for only 15 years.
Thirdly, he created the monkey and gave it about 30 years. The monkey said it didn't want to fool around and be made fun of for that long and asked for only 10 years.
Finally, he created man with a lot of intelligence and gave him about 30 years. But man said he needed more time to enjoy the world using his intelligence.

So, God gave man his own 30 years, the 20 years left of the donkey, the 15 years left of the dog and the 20 years left of the monkey.

This is why man grows/uses his intelligence and thrives as human for first 30 years. In the next 20 years, he carries burdens like the donkey. In the next 15 years, he runs around for attention and respect like a dog. In the last 20 years, he becomes silly like a monkey and people laugh at him.

 ;D

Excellent Deepaji . You have summed it up nicely what a person's life is .

Dear atmavichar,

I was worrying I had no shoes
Till I saw a man who has no legs.

Arunachala Siva.
