Food is God for a Man with Empty Stomach

A man with empty stomach can neither think nor act correctly. Despite his decent behavior and generous heart he is unable of giving a sensible shape to these feelings. He will all the time be troubled about his 'hungry and food' otherwise also he will have no energy to think and he is sure to sink into death-like tiredness. In other words he cannot do his social- behavior; rather his social instinct would totally be smothered. None can differ that charity begins at home. Man is selfish enough to think of himself first and then of others. Food gives him the desire to take up other actions of life. Without food man loses physical and mental power and feels debilitated. He would not like to give up the food for the sake of some of social or political activities.

It seems to increase as each day passes and the world becomes more complex and less comprehensible. Earlier, when life was simpler and values counted for more, those who reached a ripe old age held an enviable place in society where they could really relax and enjoy their twilight years, secure in the knowledge that they still commanded attention, respect and affection, and that though they were well past their prime, all that they had given their best for was still important- and so were they.
