I just don’t understand this world that we live in. It leaves me aghast when I hear certain news. This world has truly lost its way and the people in power have lost all sense of priority. Insanity is no longer a term that can be used. Humans have crossed the limits that once were bound within the definition of insanity.
Get this : South Africa bars The Dalai Lama from a Peace Conference.
Think about this. Isn’t that ironic? Barring The Dalai Lama to please China while hosting a peace conference…What an idea! [More on this issue here]
Many Nobel Laureates withdrew from the conference after this news broke out. Makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? It has obviously stirred major controversy world-wide. And why wouldn’t it? Any person would be compelled to think about what is really going on.
Bringing it closer to home, Indian Premier League, the festival of Cricket, is in the talks for being shifted to South Africa because it clashes with the general elections in India.
Am I the only one who thinks this is stupidity? Is IPL more important than the elections in India? Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely LOVE cricket. I do, with all my heart. But I truly dislike IPL. Who do the sponsors and owners think they are? Even the cricketers are saying nothing about it. Most of the players are going to be Indian. Don’t they think it is necessary to be in the country and vote and make your voice heard in these times of so much uncertainty and insecurity?
Is an international Peace conference complete without The Dalai Lama?
Is a sport more important than the country?
Is any government, any minister serving ‘the people’?
My day has been full of questions. I cannot stop mulling over these issues. I realise I am just one of the billions of people on this planet who is trying so hard to make the issues heard.
Is anyone listening? Anybody??
The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy. ~Woodrow Wilson
