Satyam down, Lot of big names getting Bankcrupt, Jobs no more in Market, cost of homes too high, high cost of living. Everyone blaming everyone else. What’s the root cause? Let’s think why it happened –

  1. As shoppers, we look for the cheap and best product.
    As sellers, we look for the best price for it (we are too happy if we sell it at higher price).
  2. As Employees (Software Engineers) we look for higher pays, promotion and Onsite opportunities.
    As Employers (Project Managers) we look for getting things done at lesser price.
  3. When we get profit in shares we are Happy without thinking that we’ll be on the receiving end some day.
    When our share prices go down we are Sad without realizing we were at the other end the other day.
  4. We blame Politicians for not doing good and spoiling our Country.
    We don’t resist them if they do anything good if it’s for our Caste/creed/sex/religion. We don’t even vote forget about contesting an Election.
  5. We are ready to pay anything for our Entertainment filling the pockets of Film stars, etc. If anything happens to them it’s a Breaking News. We cheer their punched on Enemies.
    We do not pay or donate money to Army personals who sacrifice their lives. We don’t even come to know how many bullets they fired to save us or how many have they taken on themselves.
  6. We fight on minor issues ‘coz of Ego. We want our voices to be heard.
    We don’t want to hear what others are saying.
  7. We are happy because all the work is coming to India and we are getting paid without realizing that we have snatched away someone’s job in US or elsewhere.
    We say it’s bad if outsourcing is stopped. We crib when we are thrown out of the Office. We don’t realize it came to us for profit and will go if they get the profits more by getting the work done from somewhere else.
  8. When we are sad and disappointed we pray to God.
    When we are happy we don’t remember him.

Clearly we never think about someone else. We always think about us/ourselves. There’s an “I” everywhere. Think of the time 10 years back. It was Peaceful. Today we neither want to stay quiet and calm nor did we let others do the same. Clearly, either we all start thinking about Humanity or stop blaming others for our Sufferings. Not intended to hurt anyone or Pravachan. It’s the thought which came to my mind and I wrote it here. Thanks for your Patience to go through it.
