OUR FOREFATHERS WERE LUCKIER THAN WE ARE
We are in the age of twenty-first century which is greatly marked with various modern facilities of life. But it is sometimes believed that our modern life is not providing us with great happiness which was tested by our forefathers.
The world is going on. The course of this world is obvious and non-stop. The creation of humans on earth by Allah is a long story. Man has been on this earth from time immemorial. The life-style of our forefather differs from that of us to a great extent. It is said often that our forefathers were happier and luckier than we are.
We now live in an age of science. Scientific invention and technology revolution have influenced our life from top to bottom. In every stage of our life we feel the contribution of science. We have been given electricity, modern communication system including airplane, electric train etc, computer, elements of modern recreation, global relations among the nations, components of comfortable modern life and what not. We have decorated our life which seems to be a modern science laboratory. But our present lifestyle is not beyond altercation.
With the above mentioned facilities we have been awarded with a numerous curse like two world wars, powerful atomic weapons, destructive war-ships, the rise of temperature of world climate due to CO2 or CFC, AIDS. Strafes of nation and so on. These problems are so destructive that they are threatening the future of human civilization. One of these problems is sufficient to cause the utter destruction of world.
Our forefathers were very simple in their life-style. They didn’t have so many facilities that we have today. But they had plenty of rich in granary and plenty of fish in waters. They had no misuse or want. But in our time though some people are making plies of money but some are getting poorer.
Our forefathers didn’t get modern elements of life of our time. They wouldn’t live in building. Natural hostilities were a problem to them. Modern communication system or modern medical services were beyond imagination at their time. But they had a contented life-style.
Though we have got various threats and curses. I would like to say that we ourselves are luckier, happier and better than our forefathers. Our forefathers would not dream what we have got in reality. They would go crazy with what are seeing, getting and enjoying if they were with us.
