          Birth is an Accident but Death is a TRUTH which ONE bound to embrace , one day or the other. The ONE who knows himself following considering oneself as one's friend of him or her; the eny often completes his or her life fruitfully. The material we are gathering in one's life; are obsolete in Nature being these shall too face death, as and when the Planet where we are living shall die in due course of time.
