We all know the popular saying “Health is Wealth”. By health we do not mean the absence of physical troubles only. But it is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. The loss of health is loss of all happiness. Someone also says, “It is health which is real wealth, and not pieces of gold and silver”. It means that it is always better to be healthy than wealthy. A man may be immensely rich. He may have all the luxuries one can dream of. But if he has a grave disease like cancer or something, all his wealthbecomes useless. He will not be able to enjoy comforts. He will be slowly crawling inch by inch towards death. But if a man is health even if he has no wealth, he can be happy. As he is healthy, he can always work and earn his daily bread. He can lead a happy and contented life with what he has. As he is healthy, there will be no diseases to bother him. He may not be able to spend lavishly or afford luxuries. Therefore it is true to say that health is better than wealth. Good health always brings about happiness. When we are quite fit, strong and healthy, we feel genial, our mind becomes lucid and clear and we think of noble things. If people do not have good health, strong body and an unflinching spirit of enduring and overcoming, they will not be able to turn wilderness into fertile soil which produces tons of food for their dear compatriots. Good health is therefore necessary to happiness and success whereas bad health means misery and continual failures. How can we feel happy when our body is in a morbid state though we are living on a heap of gold! In conclusion, we should feel no excessive greediness and enthusiasm for wealth but should always maintain good health which is the most valuable thing in life.
