Who needs a heart of gold?

While listening to popular artiste Madan Krishna Shrestha practising for his solo concert in Paleti, my attention was drawn by a particular song,
He Bhagwan Mero Khalti Ko Ghaau…….

It is not that I have heard this song, composed and performed in a light comical mood for the first time. But I don’t know why, I found myself exploring the deeper and more serious side of the song. Some lines say,

धनको कमीमा मान्छे, भएका छन बिल्लीबाठ
धनले नै दिन्छ आखिर, सबलाई गाँस र बास
जसलाई धनले पच्छ्याउँछ, रुपवान ऊ गनिन्छ
धन भएमा मुर्खै पनि,बिद्वानमा गनिन्छ

I found myself wondering if money and wealth was so important in life. I was alarmed to get to the conclusion it really was. There is nothing in this materialistic world without money.  Maybe this is the reason people go to any extent to be rich. People betray anyone or slit other person’s throat (literally and otherwise) to gain wealth. Morality or everything else becomes secondary issue as far as money is concerned. Government officers, politicians, industrialists, businessmen and everyone are running after money. They don’t think twice before making mullah. No matter how, but you have to make money. This is the lesson this modern day world has taught us.

Gone are the days where people remained in illusion with sweet play of words which say,
Money can buy you a bed but not a sleep.
Money can buy you food but not hunger.
Money can not by you relations.
Money can not buy you happiness.

These are all lame excuses for the failures in life those can not make money. In today’s world, money can buy you anything. On the other hand, without money you are nowhere. Why money has become such an important aspect of our life?

Think of a common man who can not even get himself treated god forbidden he is ill or suffering from some serious disease. Have you noticed how many life saving pleas are printed in newspapers now a days. Why there is such a huge discrimination between human beings? Some people have all the wealth in the world to support their idiosyncrasy and in the other hand others have difficulty for basic survival.

Money rules above everything. Without money you can not even prove yourself a human being. You need money to raise your children, support their education, you need money to set up a small roof over your head, and you need money to keep your near and dear ones happy. You need money to fulfill their expectation and to prove yourself worthy in their eyes. Maybe that is the reason there is one ancient saying in English,
“If you are rich, you are handsome, intelligent and you sing well too.”

How true. If you do not have money you can not sing the song of life. You are a looser and you are a loner. Heart of gold is just a phrase to make you a fool. Who needs a heart of gold? Such hearts have no selling value in the market. It is penniless, worthless and valueless.

You should have tons of gold to be able to get what you want in life, not heart of gold.

  1. Sir jee, I dont agree with you. I know that money is needed to fulfill basic needs of life, it is different story that manis lai paisa le kahile pani pugdaina. But dherai paisa nabhaera pani sukhi bhako manchhe haru maile dekheko chhu..ra uniharu dhan ko sukha hoina mann ko sukha liyera banchiraheka hunchhan. Ahile sansar ko aankha ma dhan ko patti lageko chha..testa aankhalai kina afno gun ra dosh dekhaunu paryo?afno kala ra kshyamta teslai dekhaunu jo esko yogya chha..jasle mann ko ra prem ko aankha le sansar lai herchha. Kina testa dhongi ra paisa ka pachhadi dagurne haru le aanfulai bujhenan bhanera dukhi hunu.. Try to be happy knowing that few people in this world exist who recognize your talent, who feel your feelings and make them their own, who listen to your songs and think that they are the most beautiful compositions, and who become the happiest in the world getting the chance to see and live in your heart of gold!

  2. ब्र जेश जि को आर्टिकल र आन्नोम्युस जि को कमेन्ट पढे । अग्रेजी राम्रो सँग बुझ्न् गार्हो हुँदा हुँदै पनि एकछिन घोत्लिए शब्दहरु सँग । धेरै लामो के लेख्नु र मैले ! यती राम्रो लेख लेखी रहनु भएको छ तपाईं हरुले । मलाई आन्नोम्युस जि को कमेन्ट असाध्यै चित्त बुझ्यो । त्यसैले मैले पनि आफ्नो मनमा लागेको थोरै लेख्दै छु । सत्य यथार्त सुख धन होइन मन हो । धन ले झनै समस्याको पहाड खडा गरिरएको हुन्छ । कहिल्यै पुग्दैन धनले मान्छेलाई । दुई छाक खान धौ धौ र एक सरो राम्रो लगाउन नसक्ने को निम्ती दुई छाक मिठो खान र एक सरो राम्रो लुगा लगाउन पाउदा जुन खुशी उस्को या उन्को अनुहार मा देखिन्छ – पढ्न सकिन्छ त्यस्तै खुशी धनी ब्यक्तिको अनुहार मा देख्न सकिदैन । देखिए पनि धन नहुने को अनुहार मा जस्तो निश्चल हुँदैन ।
    धन नभएको ब्यक्ती जती सन्तोष को भन्दार हुन्छ त्यस्को थोरै अन्श पनि धन भएको ब्यक्ती मा पाउदा द ङ्ग पर्नु पर्ने हुन्छ ।
    त्यसो भए के गर्ने त ? अब हामी जानी जानी गरीबइको धरातल मा पनि झर्न चाहदैनौ भने ! जती छ हामी सँग त्यती मै खुशी हुने । जहिले पनि धन सम्पत्ती को कुरा – सुख सयल – सुबिधा आदी को कुरामा आफू भन्दा निम्न सँग तुलना गरेर सन्तोषी हुने र अन्य प्रगती कला आदी इत्यादी को कुरा मा चाँही आफू भन्दा बढी भएका हरु को भन्दा बढी बनाउन खोज्नु पर्‍यो । त्यसो गर्नु नै पर्छ भन्ने छैन तर गरे राम्रो । प्रतिभा त सधैं चुलिदै गएको नै राम्रो हुन्छ ।
