  The "lucky" few

Favorite thing: Life is not fair!
The world is not fair.

That's very obvious in India.
One will be confronted with the question of fairness.
It'll be a waste of time to ponder on that.

The Madrid bombing further proves that.
It's not a question of an eye for an eye.
It's not a matter of fighting back to preserve peace.
It's (dare I even say that?) a call for common grounds.
I think we the people survive & can live along with our neighbours if we understand that we all have family & loved ones.
Granted, there are maniacs lurking trying to disrupt the lives of majority of us in the world.
Yet, they are able to do so only because they find people with the same cause, ie. common grounds as well.

I'm not interested in politics.
Some believe we have social responsiblities in this world.
It's ok with me what others choose to believe.
But I'm no crusader.
I like to believe there are peace in this world.
Billions of people are living in peace even if millions are suffering & fighting among themselves.
I choose to focus on those living in peace than in wars.
Because I don't think I'm the person who'd be able to do something about it if I believe in fairness.
How do I know about that?
Because I don't feel passionately about the unfairness of being borned into the rich family vs those being borned by beggars.
I can't begin to answer the question "why so".
I see, I reflect, but I have no answer.
Or perhaps I've asked the wrong question!
