For the simple reason that children should be kept as far away from the grim side of life, i was kept away from it too.
Life is a complete cycle–We begin our lives, we grow, we’re responsible for other lives, we see births, old age and finally death.
We encounter something in between, called Near Death Experiences.
Escaping from such experiences leaves one in trauma, its like a bolt from the blue, hits you when you’re least expecting it.
Without going into the details, I want to point two issues out:
How can people just let a person die, when they hear the phrase "Police Case"–someone taking his last breath, and maybe he can be saved, but medical help doesn’t arrive on time, because–its a police case, no one is willing to take responsibility??! Even at hospitals–injured patients frequently die due to hospitals not touching the patient–since its a police case…We read about these accidents, injuries, incidents everyday in the newspapers…and yeah we skip through most of it–just another accident isn’t it?
Well today i saw one from close quarters, and i was almost in trauma–too speechless to talk about anything so dont ask what happened, Please.
Its only such incidents which make us realise how valuable some people are,to us. At the cost of sounding cheesy and preachy again i’d say treasure them, cherish them and if you behave rashly with them, just think once about how lucky you are to have them in your life. Also i am not a big believer of fate, but when i see examples within my life cycle, i’m stunned..and i secretly wonder–if there is truly a powerful force somewhere out there, some call it God, my near and dear ones believe greatly in it…and the faith that they have brings us out of troubled situations again and again..leaving me speechless all over..
