What Would You Prefer & WHY?

I remember answering this question in one of my friends’ slam book, and I would like to get your preferences as well.

What would you prefer among the below listed ones and WHY?

a) Wealth
b) Health
c) Fame


My Take:

I prefer ‘FAME’, as it lasts forever.

hmm Dear, I prefer Health :) Bcoz, Through out one's life, HEALTH is like A Fixed Asset...

If We Have Good Health, then only, we can achieve, do what ever we want :)

Hey, Good Q :) Thanks A Ton For Sharing :) :)

KParthasarathi said...

Guria said...

Health! Rest of them are mine to choose, and without good health, you can't enjoy these.

divsi said...

health health health...

u kno its value onli wen ure ill...

whoeva coined the term health is wealth must be a genius!:)

Sid 'Ravan' Kabe said...

I will prefer...health... Jaan hai toh jahah hain...:D

Sojo Varughese said...

I think, given a choice, I'll go for health :)

Vyshu said...

Health..

I define it as the complete state of physical and emotional well-being..

Wealth and fame are twins that i can struggle and achieve if i want..Health is not guaranteed..i always prefer health to have extra miles to lead this life and to achieve more..! Its my necessity..

Mustaf said...

A different answer from me as it varies from time to time. As long as I am alive, I want HEALTH so that I can work hard and earn enough FAME so that I am remembered for long after I am gone...

parzi said...

hey pramoda...
how are you??
hmmm...well i will go for health...as far as u r healthy u can achieve the rest but if you are unhealthy..u can enjoy none!
thats just my opinion!
but quite a thoughtful one dear!as always!

Ekam said...

I would prefer health.I'll get fame and wealth only if my health allows.

The Holy Lama said...

How are these served to choose - in small vessels like Tenali raman got knowledge and wealth from Goddess kali. If yes, I will ask mother Kali to look behind her and take all three.:D

Yellow Tulip said...

i prefer health dear...
wealth, famme can live even without tat...i never had those when i was born..
the only gift god gave was my health and the least i can do is to take care of myself...:)..soo i wod prefer health..

Shas said...

I shall choose health over the others coz if am in good health i can enjoy wealth n fame, too.
Am happy now though am not that wealthy and am hardly a celebrity but am in good health to enjoy all that is at my disposal.

Tranquility Speaks said...

I would prefer health. Physical, mental and spiritual health. Because once that is there, we are well equipped to work hard, earn wealth and get fame :)

Hemanth Potluri said...

i prefer family ..when u have a loving family u would never fall sick ..and ur health will always be good and fame ...ur always a hero to ur loved ones and u can be a awesome friend to ur friends is that not enough fame for life :)...nice way to express the post pramoda :)..

urs..hemu..

Shruti said...

Prams
where on earth you get these thoughts and write?!
My preference- Health!
Health is wealth, being good in health makes me work hard, thereby earning fame and wealth!

Nice Question!
Amazing!

manivannan said...

Health.

A 'no' mind and a sound body! 'cause, though all three are transitory, at least while alive, we can be happy if we're healthy. For me, the Joy of the Present Moment is very important!! And health plays an important factor for that ;-)

Have a blessed time, pramoda!

anupama said...

Dear Prams,
good morning!thanks a lot for your prompt comments in my blog.:)
what a thought provoking post,dear!A sound mind in a sound body,that is the best way to put it!HEALTH,HEALTH N HEALTH!nothingelse!
iam able to write this comment just as my health permits!by GOD's grace we live each moment!
wealth n fame can be thought of later!and in life time comes to be in solitude!
i just want to go back to find out the secret ways of remaining healthy.:)it's amazing!
the interviews with healthy senior citizens reveal amazing health tips.
dear,i think you are enough famous now!:)
wishing you a great sunday.....
sasneham,
anu

R S V said...

I will prefer health....
there are reasons..

for u..from me said...

heyy...vry nice question..haan, quiet twisting..all 3 of dem hav so much importance in one's life..bt if hav to chose ne 1 of dem, i'll go wid u, coz earning name nd fame is sumthin a man struggles fr whole of his life nd once attained its everlasting nd provides a complete self-satisfaction, nd a feeling dat he's done something in his life,nd his presence has solved sum purpose..
dats my opinion..nd may vary from person to person..

Sourav !!! said...

Health .. obviously !:)

Anya said...

Health for me ;)

Dhanya said...

pawan said...

Diana said...

Most definitely health. If only I were in the shape I was in thirty years ago, my life would be so much easier now. Love Di

Snow White said...

I prefer health dear :)If u have good health..you can earn both wealth and fame :)

hemanth said...

all are going wrong.. I prefer health :P haha :)

Americanising Desi said...

I prefer wealth to get the best medical advantage for good health and hence dedicate a hospital for those who need and hence get the fame I intend :D
;)

Tanmaya said...

i would say wealth..
that way with wealth i can ensure 100% health for me and it goes without saying where there is wealth there will be fame!!!
