Expansion of Ideas
The world has enough for every man's need, But not for every man's greed. 

God created this world with enough natural resources to fulfill the needs of every single person. yet there are some who, driven by greed, wish to acquire land and property beyond imaginable bounds. As a result, hundreds of thousands of common people are deprived of their needs and starve and die. It is indeed a crime against humanity for a few greedy people to indulge in lavish lifestyles when the rest of the population lives amidst grinding poverty. 

The world has been created for each and every human being alive. It is capable of providing land, food and raw materials for clothing for everyone! The world would surely be a better place if everyone opted for a simple and healthy lifestyle. However, we see all around us the mad rush for material possessions. Humans, greedily and selfishly, have been over-exploiting the natural resources over the years. 

The need of the hour is to balance materialism and over consumption with an awareness of the needs of others. Gandhiji spent his entire life working for the poor and the downtrodden and set an example by living a simple life. He tried to prove through his actions the truth of his words. 'The World has enough for every man's need, but not for every man's greed'. If only more leaders were like him!
