My Favorite Book
Books are treasure of knowledge. They are most valuable in the world. It has priceless treasure which can’t be snatched by anyone, never divided and stolen. I have read a number of books but I like “Muna Madan.”
‘Muna Madan’ is a story of Muna and Madan. It is a love story book like Laila Majnu. Madan, due to his poor economic condition, was forced to go to Tibet to earn money. After a few years, when he was returning home with his friends, he got fever on the way and his friend left him to die. Fortunately, he was met by a local person. He was cared, treated and at last his life was saved. Madan touched his feet and said, “Man can be great not on the basis of caste but on the basis of his behavior.” He further said, “Food can’t be sweet without hunger.” The poem is composed in such a melody that anyone can shade tears while reading it. His friend told his wife Muna that Madan died on the way while he was returning home. She couldn’t tolerate this sad news and died, before Madan returned home. In her absence, he sang tragedy song and later the story was completed.
The book, though, based on tragedy, gives many important lessons to people. It removes distance between rich and poor. It removes the feeling of racial discrimination. He also said, “The great thing in society is to serve others.” By serving others we can feel satisfaction and pleasure. Our thinking should be above personal interest. We should devote to help and serve mankind which finally justifies to human being.
Finally, not more than 10 times I went through the poem. But it always looks interesting. I’m proud of the book and can never forget “Muna Madan.”
