Hard work is putting a lot of great deal of effort and care into work. Hard work brings about progress, success and prosperity. When we put our effort to work, it benefits our country and humanity. If we do not work hard, we become burden to our parents and society.
Do not cheat, steal become drug pushers, kidnappers or prostitutes to get money. If you do these things, you will lose self respect. No food for lazy many.
