Madhu-An Obituary

Madhu-An Obituary-HuesnShades
27 years, From Attapadi,
Forest is my home. They usurped it and they call it their own.
Mentally challenged, they say.
I was lynched by a mob for stealing some rice to feed my hunger.
I died on my way to the hospital.
I am survived by my mother.

If only we would  – Live and Let Live!

“Kindness, quite simply, is the rent we must pay for the space we occupy on this planet.” 
("Who will cry when we die?" - Robin Sharma)

Our society had upgraded itself in all possible ways but has downgraded and hit the nadir unlike never before when it comes to being human! We usurp everything on our way and yet claim to be super-civilized. We create jokes at others’ expense!!! We, humans, as a race have become so uncouth, rude, impolite, mean and vicious. Why is compassion, gratitude, humility, generosity such a rare virtue these days?

What will be left for our children and their children -  our posterity? What values are we teaching them? Where are we heading?

I wrote a comment on a Facebook post about a 12 year old trying t kill himself because of bullying. I am a firm believer it is the parents duty to teach their child kindness and respect. And the best way of doing this is to treat the or children with kindness and respect from the time they are born. Love breeds love breeds love....happy ppf...x
