Where is Love? by Arun Pandit



Once upon a time we were young and innocent. We were honest. We were pure. but time and tide waits for none. the vicious circle of life started moving, leaving our childhood behind. Leaving behind the heart that understood the language of love. The mind, which was unware of jealousy and hatred, had now knowingly or unknowingly let them creep in.
Initially we developed ego then we became egocentric and now we are on the verge of becoming egomaniacs. Look what we have become? Where we have landed? We have a closet full of masks. Various faces for various people for various situations. Masking our true self behind it. And we are happy that we are successful in hiding our true identity, our original self.
Friends! What are friends today? They are like enemies with secret identities!
What are relationships. They are false interpretations. In Hindu mythology it is said that we are lucky that we are born as Humans! But we are gripped by an epidemic throughout the world. Which is transforming us drastically from “humane” to hu- “mean” and we proclaim that we are advancing leaps and bounds? We have reached the Moon and are on the way to reach Mars. We have cloned animals and on the way to clone humans. We boost of having solved mysteries of nature and we assure that all the remaining questions would be answered soon. We worship various gods. We follow various religions. We read different holy books. We attend religious lectures and seminars. But what for? Are we following religion wants us to follow? To do well. To treat everyone with respect. To help all human beings and nature true. To spread love. Tobe mile away from negative virtues. Or are we trying to fool the world and above all ourselves. Our technology have grown rapidly but our hearts are shrinking. We have reached the moon but we are not able to reach the hearts of our near and dear ones. We have discovered galaxies we have not able to discover our true bounds in technology. But have we taken taken a few steps to make this world a better place to live in. Have we proved ourselves to be good enough to be humans? We have mobile phones and we can talk to people thousands of kilometer away but can we hear the pain and cry of the needy? Where is the joy of sharing? Where is the feeling of caring?
