It is natural that if a person dies in a family, all the  blood relations and other members  will cry for the beautiful, meaningful and colorful  memories the deceased has make them witnessed and enjoyed  in their  life and the lessions and life changing values they learnt from him. The people very close feel great pain for the loss of their well wisher.  But there may be some members  also in the family of the deceased,who cry more than the blood relations, for the sake of Society.

Since times immemorial we have been hearing  the story of Lord Rama from Ramayana, an Indian Epic.  He was loved by all, and even by His enemies.  He was the embodiment of a perfect human  being.  He was given the title of "Maryada Purushothama" considering him as a Supreme being for His unbroken principles  as an ideal son, a wise brother, a caring husband, a good friend, a best disciple etc., but most importantly a notable and admiring king in the clan of Ishvaku.

When Lod Rama entered Sarayu river and kept walking to the depth of the River to end his life, all His family members and thousands of people of Ayodhya shed tears and cried for His drowning in the river for the love, affection  and care Lord Rama shown towards them.

When Lord Jesus was crucified at a spot outside Jerusalem called 'Golgotha' (Place of the skull) thousands of people gathered there cried for Him.  Those people  are inspired by His behavior with His fellow beings, and preachings  like loving others, show mercy on sinners etc.,

When a  question  arises  whether it is possible to live  like them, imediately we feel it is  very very difficult  and is  possible only to the great personalities like them. The reason is we cannot live without  being attracted by the worldly things, positions of vanity, awards and rewards and praises and cannot withdraw ourselves from the money making run and severe tug of war.

Even the crows are among the few birds that exhibit a social response to a dead member of their species. Dozens of crows gather near the dead crow and mourn for their fallen friend.  Their caws sounds like heart broken cries.

Are  we inferior to crows if no body except blood relations, mourn for our death? Can't we earn at least Ten persons excluding the family members, who shed tears at the time of our death?  If it is not possible our lives will go waste.

If we avoid selfishness, jealousy, egoism, lust, miserliness  and have mercy on others, and if we have charity towards all beings and  do things( help) for  others  expecting  nothing in return;  pity those who are in distress  and look not to the fault of others, we will definitely acquire dozens of people/friends who will actually  cry at the time of our death, as it   is approaching us very fast.
