Zero Sum Game

Someone benefits, someone losses...


When the stockmarket rises/falls, some will loss as some will gain
When you buy realty, prices also rise and fall
Commodities traders makes the spread between spot and future prices, but failed deliveries also meant afew fingers get burnt

In life, you make some; you lose some
As long as the 'gains' outstretch the 'losses', you prosper
You cannot, and can never, make gains forever; even Midas has his share of problems
Someone takes the pain when someone gains

In commerce, money is/are exchanged for goods and services
Mutual gains are enjoyed when opportunity costs is in equilibrium

It is said, "The more you give, the more you get"
That is as true as you can afford to continue giving until the 'receiving' starts
Also, it is not unheard of that charitable acts are rewarded with abuse, ungratefulness and ingratitude
The satisfaction is when the 'parasites' repent or when Providence serves her dues

Some will live while some must die in this crowded planet
The chosen ones live luxuriously while the commoners live with hopes
... alas, the poor... simply live
Whatever routes we take, the end is same; Death

Death will never be timelyLiveAgeSicknessDeath 
Death is as natural as sunrise and sunset ... come what may we are walking towards the end
Live happily, healthily and leave this World with a SMILE
A wholesome, worthwhile life filled with plentiful of achievements and scarce regrets

Better be a spritely, lively amoeba than a dead hero
Living happily or sadly is a choice; an universal choice that all can choose

The World is filled with anomalies; The Choice is clear

In a Zero Sum Game, I choose to live 'the sum of all happiness, health. lighted-heartedness and abundance of giving which may Zeroised when Death comes aknocking'  


I love to go without strings attached; I come crying but I must go with a SMILE 
Don't cry for me when my time is up... as death and birth is destine




The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways - I to die, and you to live. Which is better God only knows - Socrates
