The whole world was shocked when Apple announced the death of its visionary co-founder Steve Jobs on Wednesday, 5 October, 2011.
One of the director board members said in a statement, “We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.”
Remembering the vital part played by Steve Jobs, the statement continued, “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”
The world has lost a great visionary
The world still is unable to believe that such a brilliant man who had everything in his reach and whose tremendous wealth could acquire heavenly pleasures into his pocket, met with such a sad premature death at the age of 56.
The Apple tree which Steve Jobs planted in 1976 has grown into a rich tree extending its healthy branches all over the world into the most valuable technology company in the world with a market value of $351 billion. His introduction of iPod and iPhone has led the IT world into a dreamy wonderland. His Exxon Mobil is extracting money from the golden fields. But in spite of all his wealth what cost his life at such a premature age is the puzzling question before thw world today. Why were the costliest treatments of conventional medicine could not succeed in prolonging his life for some more years?
Death still a great mystery
Nothing can resist the monstrous hands of death. It is very sad to see a man, at the peak of his glory, bidding farewell from every human heart which needs him most. Jobs underwent all kinds of treatments for cancer which had been corroding him. It is extremely saddening to find all the costliest and rare treatments could not save him for a few days more.Jobs was one of the richest men of the world. His Apple brought him wealth; but Job showed the world that mere wealth cannot protect ones health.
The Apple that was transplanted in heaven
