Sometimes life is unfair

Once upon a time in the land of Mahatma Gandhi lived a little girl who thought she was a princess. She had all the pleasures of the world. A beautiful house with a beautiful garden, electricity without paying any bill, doctors, carpenters, plumbers and electricians just a call away. A beautiful colony with club house where one could play almost all the sports and could celebrate all the festivals. She had never travelled in bus for going to the other cities. Birthdays were like a grand occasion with hundreds of guests. It was like living in Eden.

 But there came a cyclone and it changed it all. The cyclone blew away the factory where her father worked. Hundreds of people were left jobless. This situation is harder when you have been faithful to the company for so many years. The electricity was gone and life was left in the darkness. The darkness which lasted for almost a year. The income became zero and she realized she was no princess. There was no water supply and hence they had to pull the water through hand pump. The family slept on the terrace though there was no stair case, they used a ladder instead. When it rained they would just roll themselves in plastic instead of getting up. After all they had got used to it. The life became a bit better because everyone had learned to cope up with this. People who couldn't take it died. There was a long revolution after which they got electricity. But still finances were bad. They remained. This little girl had now grown into a young college student and she knew what could the family afford and what they could not. Of course she studied on loan. She got placed in a wonderful company and she thought life would now be easy. But the dream was short lived. But again she had learned a lot in life to cry at such little things. She knew very well, for some people life will always be a struggle.

 Now her family has beautiful house in other city but when she got the news that the house where she was brought up, she had played and seen some of the most beautiful moments of her life was sealed by Government , she was sad. When the government , the forces have no power to do any good things why do they do such things. There are tons of other important works to be done, the country is under terror and all they want to do is to make more people homeless?? Yes, homeless.. not the girl and her family but others who are living there and who have nothing else than that house because the company owed lot of money which they will never get. 

How can we say life is beautiful??
There are so many such cases happening around us which leave many people jobless, homeless and after sometime mindless. Many would say that one should come out of it but it is not as easy as it sounds. There are a million things which go on in minds and there are lot of external factors too. This too shall pass is right but its hard, only one who suffers knows.

All such incidents have lot of negative effect on mind , though we may try best still it disturbs a person and changes the way she thinks.

But yes, whatever it may be life is beautiful..

Death , injury, blood in just 10 minutes

It takes 9 months for a mother to give birth to a child. Life is a gift , perhaps the most precious gift. But those who have a heart to take this life, don't they feel the same? How can people be so heartless? What makes them so heartless? 

TERROR is a word which sends chills to our spine. How can someone become s terrorist? We definitely have no answer to this because any explanation cannot be good enough to justify this. 

A person who hasn't been through any of such terrors might not understand the state of mind of the people who go through this. I am one of those. It sounds terrifying but I do not know what does it REALLY feel like when you are victimized. 

Mumbai has seen this in 1993, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2008 and now July 13, 2011. Still we have no answer. Still no action has been taken. We are yet to punish people behind the old blasts and new have already come in. Isn't it because they know that nothing would happen to the as nothing happened to anyone? They might do anything and get out without a scratch, no one will do a thing against them. KASAB is a living example. If he were a dead example perhaps this wouldn't have happened.

Those heartless people were created to do this and even they do not know why. On Wednesday evening, three serial bomb blasts in the span of ten minutes ripped through three of the busiest hubs in the city—Zaveri Bazar, Opera House and Dadar—at rush hour, killing 21 people and injuring 141. Why only the innocent people are targeted?? They should better target the ministers, we anyways do not need such lame people. 

What can we do except criticizing the government? Because criticizing is not an answer , answer should be something concrete.. Lets be UNITED and search for the right answer...

A suicide attempt

I have heard about many people who have tried to commit suicide and have known one who did this. People say that life is so beautiful , a gift from god and so we should not do anything stupid as suicide.

Even most famous people in the world have tried or have at least thought of doing so. Just now I read an article by Chetan Bhagat which stated that he had attempted a suicide. A couple of weeks back I had read about Kailash Kher, now a famous singer, that he had decided to end his life if music did not work for him. The list can go on.

Why does a person think of taking such extreme step can be understood only if you ever thought of doing something like that in your life.

 So let me tell you the reason : It is this feeling of being unwanted, dissatisfaction and loneliness. No one creates all this on his own in most of the cases. The most outgoing person can have this feeling and the decision of ending one's life can a matter of seconds. If given more time and support the person understands the importance of life and uselessness of ending it.

I would not preach that God gave you life and he wants you to be happy. I want you to find out the sadness behind the smiles you see and help, show support and make that smile real. 

I can say all this because I have been through all this and I thank my saviours for being there for me. 

All one needs to realize is life is beautiful.

A movie poster speaks

A movie poster was hanging happily .. it did not know what is printed on it but it could see people looking at it and smiling. Two people stood right below him. It heard them talking.

Man 1 : We will watch this movie next week, it has all the spice elements.. It would be fun..

Man 2 : for sure how can we miss all those cuss words.. all packed in a single movie??

The poster was happy it did not understand the kind of humour but it knew some people were happy to see it and they will come to watch the movie next week.

The poster was there for a week and it heard many conversations most of them in favour of watching the movie.

The day when movie released it saw tons of people coming in. It heard guy at ticket counter saying it is pre booked and houseful for a week.

People came out laughing and poster was even happier.

Suddenly it saw same people who has laughs and enjoyed the movie came and tore it off..

All it could here was the movie had many elements which are polluting the society..

Poster had only one thought : "People you knew what was in the movie, you came had the popcorn and enjoyed each and every word spoken in the movie, you came even when you had seen the promos and even the reviews.. it was your choice.. you chose to watch and now you are tearing me?? Why?? If you had a problem you could have chosen not to watch the movie and made it a flop.. You did not do that and now you are trying to kill me! Will it do any good??"

Answer is left to us..
