Trading Peace for Penny

Trading Peace for Penny

It is a shame on the current trend of population that wherever you turn there is a trade off for peace for penny and petty benefits. Yes. I am really talking about the brutal blasts in Mumbai and Sri Nagar yesterday by the terrorists.

I remember, in my school days, my school correspondent used to shout at the top of his voice, inspite of being a bypass heart surgery patient,when somebody nonchalantly drops the chalk pieces and without properly disposing it in the dustbin just walk over them, thereby littering the entire area. He used to say that we do not have any rights to destroy anything, we have'nt created. Perhaps this is also being strongly emphasized in "The Bhagavad Gita" too. Relating to the chalk piece incidents, since we do not have even the ability to manufacture one bit of chalk piece, do we, on any grounds have the rights to destroy them? Why on earth, the shameless governments still bearing away with these terrorists? They are just an eyesores to the entire nation; rather the entire universe.

It just clearly depicts the greed of some handful of persons who instrument these terrorists. The greed may be for money, power or potential. I think, the nation and the world should raise in supreme solemn solidarity against these terror-striking mobs and bureocratic red tapes, which alone can bring in eternal peace and prosperity to the world. At this point of time, I am also reminded of the song from a Tamil film "Muthu", which has these lyrics:

Mannin meedhu manidhanukku asai Manithan meedhu Mannuku asai.
Man than kadasiyil jeykkirathu. Idhai manamthaan unara Marukkirathu.


At the moment, we can just pray the Lord Almighty for saving the world from the cruel hands of such creatures. Let us spend a couple of minutes in silence to pay tributes to the unfortunate departed souls and to pray the Lord Almighty to allow those souls to rest in peace.

hi Deepak, well said! The lyrics of Muthu movie are so beautiful and profound and so very apt to the context, too. It is true, as Rajanikanth sings in the song, "If you have a little money, you are the master of it, but if you have money till your neck, then the money becomes your master." Excellent Lyrics! And keep it up! Your blog is very thought-provoking but I wonder if it can move the shameless, callous, and impervious politicians in India!
