Giving recognition or reward is a prerogative of God only and is irrelevant if someone else recognize or reward you with materialistic gains. You should aim at getting taken note of by God almighty and that is what you should strive for. A few rupees increment or a superior position does not make you feel happy just because you will get used to such luxury within a short time and thereafter you will look forward to higher honours and privileges. Desires have no end. Read my blog navagrahastro.blogspot.in and you will be wiser in this regard.
