I agree with what Francis & Soumya had to say in replies to my previous post. But the reality remains that the problem still exists. This is our world & we are a part of it, and we ought to strive hard to make it better. As we all understand the real problem is in the hearts & minds of men. And as soumya pointed out...no man is bad, but his/her thoughts are. The question here is: What is to be done? At the minimum, each one of us should stop & think...to improve our thoughts and improve our lives. Because, "Saying that you don't have time to improve your thoughts and improve your lives is like saying you don't have time to stop at the gas station because you are too busy driving " .So, I think whereever the problem lies....let us all start with ourselves, our thoughts, our mindsets and our lives,...and try & purify "self"....and then proceed to purify the world "together".

The way the world is shaping up today, and the way I foresee the future of mankind in this world of ours, I can see anything but happiness in people's lives. Why can't people differentiate the good from the evil.... the right from the wrong…. the ethical from the unethical…. the moral from the immoral…. truth from falsity? Why are people running away from the good and seeking the bad? Why are they religiously following all immoral and unethical things and still aren't a bit ashamed of their deeds? Instead those silly souls are so proud of their deeds that they boast about them. DISGUSTING! Why are they tempted to do the wrong? After every wrong act of theirs why isn't their conscience pricking them? Why aren't they feeling ashamed of their deeds? Instead the person who is right is accused for being the only person in the opposition, for being the only person doing the right, he is treated as their enemy. But may I ask for God’s sake, WHY? Who is the sufferer? The poor right fellow! Who is left alone? The right person again! Now I understand..."Sometimes a majority only means that all the fools are on the same side". I wonder how people to do all possible immoral things and still manage to escape giving even more annoying reasons. Do these reasons justify their act in any way? ... Where have all the ethics gone? Why has man become so selfish? The real problem is in the hearts and minds of men. "Oh Lord of the universe! Have you stopped sending good people on earth?Please answer my prayers lord: heal the world.... Please instill in all men morals, values and ethics that may make this world a better place to live in."
