  4. Funny enough, the more spoils amassed the more is yearned for! Ironically they are still left unhappy! Good observation Ajay!

  9. Well if you look at the other way, sure it can. Greedy persons are happiest when they get more and more. They are unsatisfied creature, in my opinion, that doesn't make them unhappy, isn't it?

    1. Yeah. Now that you said it, your point sounds valid.
      But greedy people don't actually care much about the other people, it is just them, whether they got what they wanted or not. And would probably do anything to get that, innit ?

    2. Yup they do. They play with other's happiness and somehow that makes them happy, really happy.

  10. Greedy people are not always in a negative way greedy, e.g. greedy for knowledge is never wrong. Good haiku Ajay.
