Examples of extravaganza in a Sentence

  1. Ian Ling-Stuckey:

  2. Prashant Agarwal:

    Life is so miserable, even though we always try to live well, live in peace, live happily, but suddenly all goes in vain, as any uneven situation if arises, brings us in an unusual state. Mostly, we try to resist, we ignore & we fight to get out of it, and we put our best efforts towards it, but fear still remains the same, even though if everything comes out well. This fear which always keeps on revolving in mind, the fear of what will happen, if this will happen, and a fear of if this will not happen, then what will happen creates a lot of nuisance within. Such thoughts create an extravaganza of different instances, which has not yet happened, neither experienced, but since the negative forces have such impacts that to create a shield against it becomes a challenge. So it is important to understand, that to create a meaningful life is not easy, neither possible without fear, and to live in fear without thinking about the situations is also not possible. The best possibility is to live consciously and plan effectively, so that in any such situations, instead of screaming with fear, we should stand still and face it.
