The book contains stories about human values in our lives that we have cherished over centuries, and which continue to enrich our lives even today. In the advanced technological age, they retain their importance and balance our personalities. They make society stable and give meaning to our lives. They have particular significance for the growing generation that shapes the world of tomorrow. The stories are fictional, but they relate to life as we live and face every day. They are about love and hatred, compassion and jealousy, self-interest and concern for others – the different facets of life that people experience in the world of emotions. They also talk of the human dilemma between idealism and practical life, of courage in adversity and realisation of dreams and aspirations and the need to reaffirm our faith in the goodness of man and divine justice. They concern especially the young and adolescent mind that is impressionable in the critical age and forms our ethical side of life that helps us avoid the pitfalls of emotional crisis in later life.
