Different Plot! Same Stories

thousands of years ago, people fought and killed each other for land, resources, for position, for power, for religion, for love, for peace, for justice, for status, for victory…

and hundreds of years ago, the people then did the same…

just a hundred year ago… and within this hundred year… and now at present…

are we not still doing the same thing? killing one another over and over again… guilty and innocent alike…

in the name of politics… in the name of religion… in the name of freedom… or peace… or justice… or whatever the reason… aren’t we all just doing the same thing?

how have any of us become more advanced really? more developed? or more civilized? on what basis?

on the basis of technologies? those technologies by which now even more devastation is possible in a matter of seconds/miliseconds? those technologies which have the capacity to destroy this planet we are living in a blink of an eye?

haven’t we all, the people of this generation witnessed the very war on different parts of the world… for different reasons… and different techniques… but the very same action…

haven’t we heard the stories from the world war survivors, or the stories of Israel, that of Syria, of Palestine, of Iraq… didn’t we just did not ruin Nagasaki and Hiroshima? didn’t we not have the body count of Maoists rebels and the Armies just a few years back? didn’t we lose thousands of lives along with Twin Towers?

didn’t we grow up listening to the stories of the World Wars? or the stories of Mahabharata? that of Kurukshetra? or the wiping of the native Americans? How has anything that’s been happening now is better than what happened yesterday?

Just the plots differ… Stories are the same… as always…
