What’s the big hurry to die?

5 people returning from a funeral, caused their own!!  

Read it all here

And if you think that this is a freak accident, look at this picture which is a disaster waiting to happen at every place, every day, manned or unmanned



These people are trying to go by the side, under or over a barrier to  cross the railway tracks when they are not supposed to, risking their valuable lives!

And these are the so-called ‘educated’ citizens!! What to talk of the others?

If ‘its getting late’ is the real reason, then surely these people could have left 10 minutes early!!

As some hoardings in Chennai used to blare “Its better to be Mr Late than be Late Mr”

(By the way, the gender divide is slowly but surely coming down, when it comes to traffic violations)

    Dear Badri,

    This one particular aspect relating to Human Life itself speaks volumes about the fast declining quality of the Human race, which I have been telling you for a long time !

    People are just in a hurry, careless, reckless and restless and virtually pointless and even aimless and directionless in life and most of them are caught in the binge !

    While many of them are lazy and lethargy to do even the basic things relating to their lives, there are others who try to do many things in life and are in a haste to do it !

    And that is how the real course of the Homo Sapien specie is in the Mamalia family of the overall Animal Kingdom, which is in the process of Involution and not evolution !

    And this marked deterioration is hapenning for a very long time but is only noticed now by some of us, and which is not even noticeable by most others around !

    Notable among them are the so-called High and the Mighty, the Bold and the Beautiful, who have absolutely no time to introspect in their lives and look into all these matters !

    That’s how the life is unfolding and unfurling all the while, with the humans not only destroying their own ONLY world, but also of others which they have no right to do !

    And so it is less said the better about the way the human beings are behaving and conducting themselves, which they ought to mend, all in thier own interest, forever !

    Thus Spake The New Age Sage !

    This kind of accidents happen due to human error every where, on the road, railway tracks, climbing hills , using a ladder in the house , on beaches and ponds. People know the risk but still risk their lives.. Every festivals where thousands of people gather this kind of accidents occur.
    They hurry in seeing the God and really end their life. How many under-age children drive motor vehicles with out proper licence. Parents enjoy it but when the life ends they cry endlessly. How many people every day travel on the local trains?

      I didn’t get your drift. Are you suggesting that this is normal and hence doesnt deserve a post? Or are you implying that people will do it anyway?

      Since you mentioned under-age children riding motor vehicles, you may want to read an earlier post of mine titled Parents are irresponsible
