Why, What, When, Where, Who?

PEOPLE… live a normal life according to their own opinion, but wait a moment…

is it normal from others’ standpoint?

In circumstances where things do not go the right way or go terribly wrong, a situation arises where we/people in-charge need to judge others to set it right. In such crisis, people whose actions are in accordance with the social norms of the place they live, get away without difficulty; whereas those whose deeds are not, get penalized.

People and situations would not be the same at all times and should be scrutinized on a case to case basis and from time to time. It is high time we give a thought on the nonperforming hard and fast rules and amend the socioeconomic rules and regulations in place from time to time so that it is a win-win situation for one and all.

It is our responsibility to maintain justness, peace and harmony in order to make the world a better place to live in.

THINK before you ACT!!!

Every particle of air in the sky,

Every drop of morning dew,

Every spark of blazing fire,

Every grain of dry and wet sand;

For us to put our foot forth

Firmly on the Earth;

Say the captivating news to those who would want to hope…that…

God still loves the world!

Devastation – Unexpected

The students and youth of the Tamil Nadu state of India, staged a week-long protest to lift the ban on Jallikattu and for the amendment of PCA Act, in a peaceful and a democratic way.

One fine morning on monday, the protestors were attacked (women/pregnant women and children were among the protestors).  We had a difficult time commuting as the roads were blocked by protestors (or antisocial elements? as the students protested in a smooth manner) and many vehicles were burnt.  It was a total devastation for the whole state of Tamil Nadu as many including women were beaten and the injured are in hospitals.

These events are strange and new to Chennai, the capital city of Tamil Nadu, as it is the most civilized and educated in the entire country.  The southern states, Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and especially Tamil Nadu, are the ones where democracy is happening practically than the others, and people live in peace here.

This is the first event in history such a protest took place in such magnitude in Marina Beach, in a non-violent and calm way. However, the behavior of some antisocial entities induced a devastation to this level, the one which I have ever encountered in Chennai at least.
