Life – the condition that distinguishes you from inorganic matter. The period between life and death. This period is made smaller, not by natural causes but by induced sufferings.
“All work and no play make Jack a dull boy” keeping this old saying in mind the education departments started Physical Training/Education as a part of their academic curriculum. Along with boosting up the knowledge of the child he/she also attained Physical strength via games, exercise etc. But now times have changed. We have entered into a horrific world where the true meaning of the saying “Survival of the Fittest” is being portrayed at every turn in life. We are strong physically but Psychologically and Emotionally we are very weak. We have lost the will to live. People seriously need an attitude make over and Life Hacks to tackle problems that are currently sprouting in the world.
What might be the reason for this? Take up the day’s morning edition newspaper and open up we’ll find at least one suicide case. Has life lost its meaning? Or have people forgotten it. Some of us might find the reason for deaths very silly since we can’t understand the victims’ emotions. Mind is a really tricky organ to figure out how it works. Hence we can’t put ourselves in their shoes.
From the past few days there have been a lot of suicides and suicide attempts that are on a rampage in our nation. From a high school teenager to a fully grown adult people have lost the will to Live.
