It’s hard to put it but we live in a strange country where minors are killed when they take small piece of ice from an ice vendor, an air hostess is slapped when she fails to deliver water on time to MPA. And dogs are set on yet again a minor girl (Geo TV, Online edition June 17, 2013) when she tries to get an onion from her landlord’s field.
Aren’t we a bunch of intolerant people living in a place where national heritage is put to blaze as a result of terrorist attack, we have become so immune to target killing, suicide attack that if a day or two passes by without it, we start wondering; what darker clouds are looming large on us.
Sadly, the truth is we have lost moral, religious and human values as if we never had these values. Price of human life is just a matter of one random bullet or dagger, we are showing brutal, fighting and killing cartoons to our kids, we give them guns to play with, or costumes of super heroes to disguise them. We never teach them what actually life is all about and there are no super natural heroes, we have a heterogeneous mingling set up our biggest problem is how to and how not to celebrate the valentine’s day and Halloween perhaps obscuring on true religious festivals and carnivals.
In our busy lives, we have reduced our horizons to ourselves alone. Holding on to true values bequeathed by elders? Who cares about that? Who’d be our next president? why care when whoever comes in power only gets blinded by the lust of it.
Where my friends are the bookish values, honesty, faith and hard work. All perhaps we are left with is corruption to the most abject level. And I for one don’t exempt myself from it. The core remains the same, and only faces change.
And I won’t say it is about time we start looking what we hold in our hands and what we could possibly save. Because we’re way past time and all the endless rants on the “change” are but a cliche!
