and the world is silent

My morning usually starts with a hot cup of black coffee n yoga which blends in with me watching the news, and im usually in an relaxed mood every single morning.But on this particular morning im in shock and helpless rage at what i watched on the news channel. Well , this particular news segment was about the communal riots in burma….riots between the muslims and the monks.the videos showed horrific incidents of the riots which shook the very me and had me thinking what has the world come to? what world are we leaving behind for our kids to live on?its terrible.

The first horrific visual was of a group of people burned down a single man.. i would rather say charred him completely…on camera and none were ready to give him any aide even after discovering that he was still alive.The dialogues were translated into the english subtitles in the videos where one man says”give him some water..he is alive”.  ” No water for him…let him die” says the other man brandishing a machete!


The second shocking incident was of a mob of hundreds budhists attack a small colony of Muslims  drag a young Muslim man who was fleeing to save his life and was just cold bloodily hacked to death in broad daylight…in front of the cameras..with their faces clearly and completely visible!


Burma…the land of Buddha…the land of Healing monks…once the land of peace , love and tranquility is now on fire!!! there is no more healing there…its only blood and murder. And all this because of a petty argument between a shop keeper and a muslim.


How do we expect our kids to grow safely and happily in a world where humanity has gone for a walk? How do our kids learn to give and love with so much of hatred surrounding us…….How do we keep our sanctity and how do we tell our little ones that the world is a better place for them?!
