As her trembling soul waited for the next man to enter her forlorn life through that dingy door, she raised a question to God: Why am I used like a toy? My body is served to quench the thirst of sadistic men, no one looks beneath this body. That girl of eight, ten years back did not know what the daughter of a devadasi (temple prostitute) was destined to be, until that fateful day when she was sent to the brothel and undressed by a man 30 years older to her, for a mere ₹200.
God, do I not deserve a life of dignity and respect? My swollen eyes, wounded forehead because of the constant thrashing (by the devilish men for reasons unknown to my anguished soul) and my bruised back does not remind your fellow children of what the true meaning of humanity is? Am I not a human? Do I not have feelings and emotions?
A Terrorist attack in Brussels. Oh, suicide bombing in Lahore. How can I forget Paris. 26/11 and 9/11 too.
Well, what should I say now? We love to talk about love, peace and harmony, but as I can see, the future of humanity is heading towards darkness (let’s be honest). God created us in the hopes of building new dimensions and ideas that would flourish on this beautiful planet for centuries to come. But what has happened now? Why are we destroying each other? For attaining supreme power or is it religion? Hopes shattered.
Why have we forgotten that we made religion, and that religion didn’t make us. Religion is a person’s way of life and the ideals he follows and the ‘guru’ whose philosophies he acknowledges the most. This guru shares the same knowledge with all the beautiful beings of this world and they make it their way of life. The mere difference which I can observe in the religions of the world is only the language and the culture but, the self same Guru. That’s it.
So why are we fighting? Different religions in and around the globe have taught to love and respect each and every being (this fact is definitely not unfamiliar to you) but ask yourself- are we really following this ideal?
If all the people of the world choose LOVE over HATRED, wouldn’t earth be that Heaven we all want to experience once in our lifetime?
