Story Review-The Three Questions

What is the right time to begin something?

writer was very much successful in achieving that purpose.

beautiful and interesting story. In this story Motive of life is explained
very wisely in just few pages.
Lesson learned-You should not go ask other people to decide for what

story whom I am really love, it is the saint. I liked him for being full of
