Opinion and Rating
A beautiful and simple story which makes understand the neccessity of life.Usualy we tend to look at the small perspective of the world and miss the wider and larger perspective. Understanding of what life is and finding where inner happiness is matter the matter. Life is general are filled love, failure , trust, mistrust and arrongance selfish people and lot of other emotion which exibit and understanding the life of people around us also important. The author is right to mention that beauty, inteligence and power play a very important role. Right mixture of these three component can make our lives perfect
I would rate the 4/5
