  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    There is a commonality between Beauty, Fame and Power. They all are fickle, and often described as faithless, flighty and frivolous. They are warm and gentle, when they enable you to soar high. They are cold and brutal, when they drop you from the greatest heights without any warning. They often trip you up when you are least expecting it. Fools get mesmerized by their magic, while Wise manage them smartly by keeping their feet firmly on the ground. Be Wise, and never get swayed by the hypnotic charms of Beauty, Fame and Power.
