He is Mahesh, a barber by profession. Quite often I take his services. He runs his saloon with his own investment without resorting to any sort of borrowing from any where, a bank or a private money lender. His family consists of himself, his wife, and a daughter whom he got married some time back. He is an income tax payer. Every time I call him, he turns up within minutes always wearing a smile on his face with no inkling of any slightest possible tension, or any kind of fatigue. His is a most contented life. Asked as to what he would do if some big amount of money is placed at his disposal, his prompt reply was ‘Sir, I don’t need any money beyond what I am able to earn on day today basis. More the money, more the problem. I am so happy in my life, fully contented and satisfied. I am not for any further money even if some one gives it free to me’. Honestly speaking, I envied his posture and expression and the amount of peace he was enjoying. There are many a stories containing conversation between the King Akbar and his counsel Birbal. Once both of them were travelling to some place in a disguised manner when Akbar saw a labourer calmly sleeping on a rock in the hot sun. He asked Birbal as to how this man could sleep so well on a hot rock?. Birbal replied that this man is having more sound a sleep than your Majesty’s as he feels fully contented in the mode of the life he is having and has no kind of any tension like a King has. In fact, peace is entirely an individual factor. One can lead most peaceful a life by making necessary adjustments with his own way of a thought process and not by procuring one resource after the other. None can buy or borrow it, none can steal it away, and none can win it after launching a war for the purpose. Peace is entirely a self acquired phenomenon.
