All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

It is a popular proverb originated in 17th century. Most of the people are engaged in their own work without seeing the world around. Take for instance, a person working in an organisation work for whole day with the twin objectives in his mind. One to develop the organisation to the greater heights. Two his own promotion to reach top post. I don't say this is wrong. At the same he should come out and look into the outside world. He should contribute whatever possible to him by involving himself in charitable, religious, cultural and social activities. What is the use if he think that his world is only the organisation where he is working. If he does so, he will become a Jack. I would like to quote an example of a leading scientist and President of India APJ Abdul Kalam. Inspite of his busy schedule he will spend time in the evenings playing veena, love fine arts,immersed in scientific and administrative work.
