“Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.”

Lately, even though work is keeping me busy- not just busy but extremely busy and I get to hear news from other modes – by listening to radio talk show or over heard someone saying or even someone just quickly giving me a rush news- did you hear about Jaipur Blast??? And I am like blast? In Jaipur? ….as if I don’t exist in this planet any more!!

“Happiness is a matter of one’s most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.” ~ Iris Murdoch

Well, I do and it makes me feel so upset when I hear disaster happening either it’s Mother Nature (for China, Burma) or we- man made disaster such as in Jaipur.

“An ostrich with its head in the sand is just as blind to opportunity as to disaster”

I was shocked to hear that for Jaipur it was on bicycles that they had bombs, can you imagine? How bad one can think just to kill others?
Jaipur city is known for its beauty, heritage, people and the food. I always had a dream of visiting this place since I was a kid.
“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” ~ Elizabeth Lawrence

About Burma, where catastrophe has occurred and when people are trying to help by giving aid the military establishment that rules the country doesn’t want to let anyone come in the country.

They are ready to take the help but only monetary so that no one comes in person to visit the country and know the inside scoop of the military ruling. How bizarre one can go? People are dying and people are ready to help but they can’t be reached or they have conditions.

“Don’t take life too seriously. It’s only a temporary condition.” ~ Bill Knapp

China totally opposite to Burma, they are welcoming the aid from all over the place.
No matter how communist a country is, news travelled like fire all over the place about the disaster and the government too let it happen.

Recently, I saw one movie which talks about communist people and about communism and I realized actually people are not bad, it’s when one gets tempted and miss-use of the term for benefits.

In all I feel we are human why not just help leaving all grievances and grudges – it’s always easy to take life than to give one.

I always believed when we can’t make a dead person alive, we have no right to make anyone dead.

  1. Dawn,I always believed when we can’t make a dead person alive, we have no right to make anyone dead.-A strong statement and we have no right to take anyones life.“Life is a gift we’re given each and every day. Dream about tomorrow, but live for today.”– Live for today is what is my way of thinking coz you never know about tomorrow. Live in the present and be with it.I remember, well even today ppl’ work work for years and by the time they wanna enjoy they are already old to go to old age home. If survivial is a big question, why birth?
