I truly believe what Jesus taught long ago: man does not live by bread alone!
Very regrettably, even he could not make his contemporaries appreciate what it actually meant. Would it be any surprise then, if I fail to make my contemporaries understand its meaning? Ofcourse, no one in this so called modern world would agree!
But to tell you the truth, experience of decades, has trained me to contain my deep rooted melancholy to feeble levels rather than to substantial levels!
For example, the Danish people are reportedly the happiest in the world now-a-days. I also learn that the Danish people are happier because they do not give too much importance to money. Rather they consider social fellowship more important than any thing else.
In my region, some how, distrust is the key element of life and true social fellowship without selfish interests are becoming a rarity as the time passes. The growing distrust, selfishness and greed for money among my fellow beings in my part of the world sadden me.
The reports say that a mere 928 house holds in India own and control one fifth of the nation's wealth now.
While my fellow being are not so perturbed with this, I truly am. Not because, these households manage to control this huge wealth and money, but because they fail to discharge their responsibilities as custodians of wealth, judiciously. And that makes me sad, really sad.
Watching them, I think about their ultimate fates about which they seem mostly unconcerned. It pains me.
It makes me sad when my counter parts behave like walking dead bodies! It makes no difference to them when the deep felt lamentations silently come out of me. My own contemporaries appear as dead already with no worthwhile responses to the various inputs that they receive from their surroundings!
And so I care much not to let out my lamentations heard out loudly!
But unlike them, my consciousness keep preventing me doing that. My sadness remains as there is none to hear me in this world now.
