Master: Life is like a slippery slope of ice. First we start playing cards with friends, then, later, having fun in the casinos betting on our favorite sports teams, which may lead to gambling more and more. Everything we do starts small, be it with alcohol, drugs or other vices. We may grow in our practices but, one small slip up and we slide all the way down to the bottom. This slippery slope of ice is what makes us human. We may take a few steps forward but with a small slip we are back to the beginning. Thus is devotion, discipline, dedication, along with grace required to be on top of the world. Then life becomes like a plateau and nothing can bring you down. All your efforts have paid off. It may be a little lonely up there but you are not alone. The view is wonderful and you will end up giving a helping hand to others to join you.— Satish Daryanani
