Crazy world... insane thoughts
It's like the title says...

Just ain't fair!

 
There ain’t no justice in the world!
He’d been up early, since the water tank had burst upon them. The water had come as a deluge. His normal waking time was around 5am to wash up and leave for work, cleaning up the city roads. It was half past 3 when the tank burst.

The family of 4 had been sleeping, looking forward to the festival in the morning. A devout hindu, Janamashtmi was on their list of celebration and “going out” days as a family. The water had come as a train through a tunnel, clearing all before it. it did not knock on any door. Just washed them out.
Luckily no one died. But that was little solace when he surveyed ground zero. It was a Sunday and no hope for getting money for the present.

There is justice. Just not in the form we desire.


not that u spoilt my mood Arjun. I was just saying that such things make me very sad.


Im very well aware of such injustice...but like Sol so rightly stated, maybe there is justice in a different form..mebbe we just dun see it cos we r so used to the norm?


Keshi.

just not us.. cos' we don't see it. To be honest, many folks I know.. no matter how lucky they seem to be... never accept it.. they always believe life wasn't fair to them. They always forget to appreciate... prefer to depreciate instead!


:) yes thats human nature.

but sometimes the poorest of the poorest ppl have the happiest lives...


Keshi.


the vagaries of fortune... and fortitude!!
