Many of you may have played Mario, the video game at least once. As you know, the game has several levels and varieties. Different creatures and enemies come up to destroy Mario and he has to fight them all in order to win the game. Any mistake or lazy move mans sure death for Mario. So, he has to be careful and move ahead by destroying the enemies. Bonus points and height is got by hitting the bricks. You might think this is a game review. Well, I am not much of a gamer to do that. What I am indicating is that our life is also like a game. We have to win every level in order to proceed and succeed.
