Shocked

I am shocked beyond words. When I read this news, for some moments I went numb. It is shocking when we read such news but in my case more so if it is a fellow Indian going through such pain.

I don’t know the background of ‘this story’. Was there a marital conflict, was he really stressed out? I just know the pain that the woman is going through and that a young life was nipped in the bud.

I have a propensity that when I am agitated the tone of my voice goes up. And my husband, the wise one, the calm one; asks me ‘is this why you were given a good education?’. Meaning that education helps you to be rational, to think, to be balanced.

But then I see this well educated people committing suicide, getting murderous, I wonder, what went wrong. But then who knows the vagaries of the human mind?

We teach our kids to be achievers. In Vizag on my vacation this year I saw kids in the 8th-9th standard getting coached for IIT entrance. I learnt that kids in second and third standard are being taught both State and CBSE syllabus so that it would be easy later on for entrance to professional colleges.

But are we able to teach some morals, some basics, do we teach them ‘Who am I really?’

Success, failure are a part of life as is death, illness, deception. Why is life to be measured in the amount of money we have made.

At the end when we leave this body there is nothing left but the love of those who matter most to us.

Forgive me if I am incoherent but I am too saddened by this news and yet I want everyone to read this post and this news.
