Calamity

Like the one in Nepal, that’s huge! With everything above you rushing down with the speed of light and you’re dead! What could be worse? Life! Death is the easy way out. Not that life is bad and useless. Now what doesn’t have it’s pros and cons. Calamities happen everywhere, it’s just that we see the ones that make the head lines. In our heads, our hearts, everywhere there are calamities happening, everyday. Behind closed doors, out there in the open, which we all close our eyes to and pretend the world is a flower bed with honey bees jumping from one flower to another. Deep down the earth is shifting slowly, everything seems beautiful and sweet on the top for now. Will the Air force come to save us from these calamities? Or will the government? Who will save us?  Aren’t we all busy and preoccupied with saving ourselves that we don’t see what’s happening around? While I am thinking about how should I save myself from one calamity, there’s another person sitting there who doesn’t know what his calamity is all about! It’s like a volcano , the lava building up inside, the enormous amount of heat coming up to burst out into the sky. Into the peaceful expanse of what we call our world. The eruption causing earthquake and tonnes of smoke and lava flowing out, people running here and there, grabbing nothing but themselves and their loved ones. Running as far as possible. Why do they need to run? Can’t they figure out a way to overcome the effects of it? In human life they can. With the technology and the God given brain, what is impossible for man today? Nothing! The ones in our head and heart are like these great and mighty calamities which don’t need an earthquake to kill someone. We die a slow death unless we are saved from that calamity. We aren’t on the tomorrow’s front page to be seen and read by all. We are in ourselves, seeking! Seeking for the One thing that can save us all.
