The Fragility of Life

We take a lot of things in our life for granted. Every day’s morning newspaper carries reports and pictures of terror and suffering from around the globe. I read it, think about it for a while, then feel that I am all insulated from this, things that won’t remotely affect me.. until today afternoon.

I was passing by the same Bangalore bus stop which the bombs tore apart just 5 minutes before it happened. Makes you realize doesn’t it? Life is fragile and nobody is insulated from it all. It was just a matter of timing, it could have been me, you, anyone instead of the poor garment factory lady who got killed. I just can’t stop thinking of her, going out for another day of work to make ends meet and suddenly end up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Hmmm….

All my big problems looks so tiny now. Life is short. Life is fragile. Enjoy it while it lasts.
