Hope sustains life.It is the sheet anchor of life. Chanakya an ancient Indian teacher says: “No doubt, the physical frame is sustained and supported by air, food and water, but at the psychological level it is the hope that sustains life .It is the perception of self worth and moral strength that affirms the will to live. “ Hope is the sustenance of living beings .If we lose hope it would lead to a quicker death whether of spirit or of physical death .When there is loneliness, dejection or frustration our heart weeps and eyes stare .At that crucial moment hope comes to our rescue and gives us security to cling to life. We all are hoping for a better tomorrow for ourselves, for our beloved ones or for the world we live in .The peasant works in the field with the hope to have a good yield. Hope stands as a never failing friend for toiling peasants and workers. It is not hope alone that brings the desired results but also the efforts that we put in to fulfil it .Hope without strategy leads to nowhere. We can“t cross the river merely by standing and staring at the water.Success ,no doubt, is driven by passion but we also have to work for it .Only those who work finally achieve a better future.Hope makes us believe that things will certainly go better It gives us strength to maintain our resilience, determination and perseverance. However bleak the situation may be, hope keeps us alive with a sense of purpose.The cycle of progress in our civilization is due to the hope present in our bosoms. No progress would be possible without hope .We must lead a life of hope and action.
