An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Losing it all in a moment

Why do we put all our emotions on every moment such that our existence is at stake? Is that a good way to live life and have a civilized existence? What if we can’t make it in that moment and the loss in that moment makes it look as if we have lost it forever?

I read this comment on a Pakistani blog that made me sit up and think about this. Why are people putting so much at stake when it comes to a simple sports? We have seen the mess of how Cricket was used to create hatred between Pakistan and India in the 1990s. Why do we keep going there?

A middle order collapse saw Pakistan reaching 171 all out. Hopes died. Nation as usual didn’t get anything to cheer on. Salt on the wounds was the truth our captain acknowledged, “It is not the team that lost, Pakistan Lost.”

Yes Pakistan definitely has lost it all. Whether its sports or its real life, the nation seems to have lost it all. It all started back in 2003 when American army invaded the Afghanistan. Hundred of people have died ever since. The war just continues.

This is the time for the citizens of that country to take a deep breath and think.. Think hard.
