Hats off to whoever has compiled these statistics! Read and understand how lucky we are!!

The current population of Earth is around 7.8 billion.
For most people, it is a large figure, that is all.

However, someone has condensed the 7.8 billion in the world into 100 persons,
and then into various percentage statistics.
The resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.

Out of 100 persons:
11 are in Europe
5 are in North America
9 are in South America

If you have your own home,
Eat full meals and drink clean water,
Have a mobile phone,
Can surf the internet, and
have gone to college,
You are in the minuscule privileged lot.
(in the less than 7% category)

If you are over 65 years old. Be content and grateful. Cherish life, grasp the moment.

You did not leave this world before the age of 64 years like the 92 persons who have gone before you. You are already blessed amongst mankind.

Take good care of your own health because nobody cares more than you yourself!

“Thank and Pray Parmeshwar (सगुण ब्रह्म जो संपूर्ण सृष्टि का रचयिता एवं संचालक है) for all the Blessings”

Cherish Every Moment
