Where is the peace, the wishful thinking of us all?
Where is the law and order, the basic desire of each and all?
We look for a thing, which we have seldom
wished for from our genuine heart.
How to get rid of this rotten society where
everyone is sick, but calls himself healthy?
Life is short but the wish to live is too long.
The more and more we are heading towards death.
The more and more the allurements of the world
do seize us,
The germs of discord and dissension prey on us.
And life is reduced to a mere dream;
What a strange world this is indeed, which keeps
us all restless and dissatisfied;
Perhaps this is all the leela the play of Maya,
entrapping us all.
O God! You have made us all slaves to Maya,
seizing us from all sides and keeping us disturbed;
I don’t know what is good and what is evil,
I fail to distinguish between Maya and reality, the
foul and the fair,
As if being born in this world was a punishment;
Are we condemned to live in this hell once and for all?
Where we have to come again and again to suffer,
God! Make us get rid of all that glitters but is not gold.

Despite all the honors that we heaped upon him, Pasteur, as has been said, remained simple at heart. Perhaps the fantasy of his boyhood days, when he drew the familiar scenes of his birthplaces and the longing to be a great artist, never entirely left him. In reality he actually becomes a great artist, though after his 16th year, he abandoned the brush forever. Like every artist of worth, he put his soul and whole energy into his work and it was this very energy that in the end wore him out. For him, each sufferer was more than just a case that was to be cured. He looked upon the fight against hydrophobia as a battle and he was so into his determination to win. The sight of injured children, specifically moved him to an indescribable extent. He suffered with his patients and yet he would not deny himself a share in that suffering. His greatest grief was when sheer physical exhaustion made him give up his active work. He retired to the estate of at Villeneuve Etang, where he had his kennels for the study of rabies and there he passed his last summer, as his great biographer, Vallery Robot, has said, “practicing the gospel virtues”.
The attitude of this mean to the Science he had done so much to perfect, can be best summed up in a sentence that he is reputed once to have uttered, concerning the materialism of many of his contemporaries in similar branches of learning to his own: “the more I contemplate the mysteries of nature, the more my faith becomes like that of a peasant”.
But even then, in retirement he loved to see his former pupils, and it was then he repeated his life’s principle: ‘Work, ’ he would say, “never cease to work”.
He passed as simply as a child, the greatest man; France had ever produced, derived from a plebiscite among the French people. Napoleon, the idol of France was placed fifth. No greater tribute could have been given to Louis Pasteur, the tanner’s son, the scientist, the man of peace and the patient worker for humanity.
