When Do We Turn Selfish?

We were born with hands free to hold anyone...

We did not mind who was next to us in classes,shared lunches,had quarrels,performed tantrums!

We grew up...Parents pressurized us to outwit our peers who then turned our counterparts...

We aspired to win this world...get accolades, wanted recognition..

We squeezed ourselves in meaningless competitions.

We now have jobs,money and caring spouse...

We rush this life chasing our beloved materialistic dreams and obviously win them...

We will ultimately end our race one day with castles on cash...

Have we ever thought of those refugees leaving the lands they were born,were they played and were they made love...

Have ever prayed for those who were differently abled,physically or mentally challenged?
We waste our money and time in building landmarks with marbles paved and woodwork decorated instead of building lively bonds with people who need us to share and care...

We professionals too selfish to turn around and appreciate the falling snow preferring the falling dollar value...

When are we going turn human?

When are we going to feel the hunger of hundred thousands which is the only true pain?

When will we understand and sympathize the child which works for you sparing studies?

Life is all about living and not existing...

This is an alarm to the extinction of empathy...
