Man should make a conscious effort to manifest these values in his life to make life worthy and meaningful. The five values when manifest completely make a man complete.

This is a very special volume which has been written in the memories of my beloved mother. I dedicate this volume to her to seek her divine blessings and best wishes which will give me courage to write more books in the near future.

I am grateful to my younger brother Shri Anil Kumar Goyal , Advocate for providing help from time to time. Without his help this memorial volume would have never seen the light of the day. I am also grateful to Dr S Gayatahri and Anupam Srivastava for providing help from time to time. Finally I would like to express appreciation to my family for kind understanding and corattinuous encouragement during the sometimes trying moments of the final draft of the manuscript. My wife Mrs. Kaplan Goel, my son Master Shirish Kumar Goel and my daughter Shivali Goel are editors who assisted me day and night to check the proofs several times and I am personally indebted to them for their cooperation and whole-hearted support with unfailing cheerfulness. I request the readers to share with me the excitement, interest and challenge that this publication brings for making further improvements. The suggestions/ observations/ comments would go a long way to bring out a revised document in a better form.
