I didn't want to start my first write-up with such a topic, but the first news in the morning newspaper just couldn't go out of my mind.
An over speed car hits the cars and Bikes waiting on a traffic signal from behind and 2 young boys die on the spot. Extremely torturing to even read such a thing. Just imagine the conditions of their family members. I can't even describe in words here.
May their souls rest in peace and God gives their family members strength to bear such a loss. This is all I and many more can say and do.
But can any level of strength be enough for such a loss to a father who saw both his sons dead body together, to a mother who was waiting for his sons to come back from work, to a 4 months old wife who has not even seen one complete season of married life, to a son who has not even played enough games with his father. This is all so disheartening.
The question is why and now what?
Why such an accident happened? Why people drive with no civic sense? Why is the police or government not able to do anything to stop such things? Moreover, what we as humans are heading to?
Just 2 days back my own car was hit from behind on a traffic signal by another car which wanted to skip the signal and rush. With 4 traffic police standing hardly 100 mtrs away, this car hit me and rushed off. I stopped and asked the policemen "aapka bhi darr nai hai" ? A very interesting reply I got from the traffic police men , "madam kya kare hum to kaam karna chahte hai but bade adhikari or neta karne nai dete".
The only news that we read today - who killed whom, rape cases of small girls, accidents like these, etc. Not even a single good news in the paper. Why? Nothing good happening around ?
I leave my first write-up open here with a question, where are we as human beings heading to? If my write-up has even touched your heart for a second, do put in your replies here.
