Every coin has a flip-side to it. If only we can willfully and discreetly look at the right side of it then I can be sure, all our roadblocks can be avoided. Now if you are sitting inside a room, how will you be able to measure its dimensions? similarly, we are often so engrossed in the wrong side that we invariably fail to realize that there may be a blend of yellow behind this opaque blue. But how do we make this blue layer transparent-is the question.
In a world where about 34000 children die of hunger and preventable diseases everyday, we should consider ourselves very lucky shouldn't we? Then what is this bond that chains us, blinds us from all the destitute, makes us look into our problems, no matter how small they be, projects them as unmissable hurdles? What makes us feel that things can never be smooth in our lives and who said these lines- "Problem is the synonym of life"..and why? Even though I know that this society is completely paralyzed, I am still pulled in to be a part of it.
Many wise, grown ups believe that spiritual uplift brings you real happiness. Swami Vivekananda famously said, "To serve man is to serve God". Every time I hear this, I am like- "Come on man, whom are you kidding?"! The day I will serve another man only in my service to God, I will know that his problems are bigger than mine. Here, on the contrary, we give them more problems so that ours look smaller. And you are talking about serving!! The only things we can serve today are food, our company and our sentence!
I hate the concept of possessiveness. In my opinion, all the Cardinal sins have this root cause. Or maybe the human brain was programmed this way- To find something that is in scarcity and then fight for it amongst themselves! And in this fight, one simply does not care if his friend is dying for this sake. As a matter of fact, the word 'friend', I believe, is one of the most misused words in modern society. This is a free world, isn't it?? Think again!!

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe-
