Life And its Obligations I have tried to look at some things that makes life tick but can only realize that without procreation life is meaningless. You can achieve any thing in life but leaving the world with no copy is the worst mistake every man can make on this earth. I have been looking at this issue and realize that the greatest respect accorded to any man on earth no matter his achievements can be seen on the day of his death,when the children surrounds the embellished coffin that covers the remains of their father and pouring encomiums on him for a life well lived. Whether the man is rich or not does not matter but what matters is that he had left someone to carry his name to distant lands. Is this not a thing of joy to hear that your child is making waves in his chosen course in life? Many a man had disputed this philosophy of fathering a child saying "It is better no wife and children" because this can cause distraction,sadness,sorrow,more expenses etc. But the truth that must be told is that no matter what you think in life,there is absolutely nothing that life offers in this world without its associated problems. If you want to be a rich man,you must work had to achieve that,if you want to be a medical doctor, you must study hard and pass the necessary trials associated with it etc. Marriage as one of life's major obligation had its travails just like others. "A wise man is not a man who wears a trouser but a man who takes the right decision at the right time and reaps a bountiful reward" . I had a story of one of my lecturers in high institution who achieved all the achievable in this world,because of the rapport that existed between us, i always make out my time to visit him. He took me as his son and for this reason,always send me to run errands for him. After many years, i visited him for a very serious issue concerning his inability to get married. On entering his house, he was sitting on a sofa in his sanctum doing what he knows best to do writing research works and term papers. "Good morning sir". I greeted in my usual manner of always being serious. "Good morning my son. How are you and how is work? he replied. " I am okay. what about you, sir? "No problem son except that you children of nowadays had turned the other of things unlike when we were young.Violence upon violence everywhere, all kinds of criminality being embarked upon by the younger generation and the worst is that virtues had been overtaken by vices as the inhabitant of this world had eulogized the perpetrators ignoring the conventional attitude of life in a bid to get rich. Chei!, these present generation is doomed". he moaned. " I know sir,but that does not mean that there is nobody on earth who can embrace this your age long philosophy of conventional attitude which you always preach for". " No problem,let's watch and see my son,i am afraid a lot of things are going wrong" We sat for sometime without any formal discussion as he was writing something which i presume may be a letter to one of his co-lecturers who had travelled outside the shores of our country to look for greener pastures in foreign lands. " Sir there is something bordering me i want to ask you".I broke the silence. "What is it "? Feeling totally curious in a manner which made every student who came across him respect and adore him for his fatherly concern at all times. "With due respect sir,why have you decided not to marry to continue your lineage? " David my son, you have been one of my best students and my adopted son. After my education.....
