Gratefulness - an essential subject
If we human beings forget ordinary mercy, compassion and gratefulness, then what is that human life? From a national point of view one who is born in this land should be given protection. The cow is also born in this land, so why the man should be given protection and not the cow? The beast, the birds, they cannot offer any gratitude. But we are human being, we have got developed consciousness. We must feel grateful for God's mercy and to offer gratitude. That is our duty.
