one life

Lie to Me: Season Twoin one of the episodes of the tv show Lie To Me, a woman pretends as if she is crazy just to get into a mental hospital,  because she thinks this is the only way to hide from a psychopath who she had met when she was a teenager. now,  she is afraid of him, and needs to hide from him, so she thinks this is the best option for her

and i try to understand the kind of a life spent in a mental hospital just because you are afraid of a person out there, and naturally, you need to survive. so thanks god this is just fiction and nothing in this show can be related to a real life situation.

Changelingso what about the movie Changeling, based on a true story? In this film, Christine Collins, played by Angelina Jolie is put into a mad house only because she insists that the kid police has found is not her missing son and her son is still missing. and the police locks her in a mad house because this crazy woman challenges their authority. it sounds wild, but it is a true story.

and i wonder, how easy it is for some people to ruin other people's lives, as if life itself is not hard enough without their harrasment -if only the word harrasment can fit into this.

almost every day, you can read the story of a poor woman in Turkey who is murdered by someone close to her, sometimes because of the most stupid reasons. a woman says her husband "what kind of a man are you," and the guy has to kill her to prove what kind of a man he is. a 50 something year old man kills his 37 year old wife because he is too jealous and the woman insists going on even though he tells her never to go out.

the lives end all of a sudden because of an asshole who has obvioulsy not understood what it means to be a human being.

in this country, you can even die just because you are in a bus whose driver thinks that the red light is for other drivers.

unfortunately, this is not a movie, or a game which you can start all over again if you die. no, this is the real thing (well i sort of doubt that actually but let me explain it some other time). this is the one and only life we have, and it is hard enough even without those assholes around you. and it is just unfair that a poor soul has to deal with such a menace.

but yet, i never heard that life is fair anyway.

The story is not different in India, and in any part of the world where law and order is just to be read out. Would you be surprised if a tell you of a sister who killed her own sister over a dispute to change the TV channel? And one who killed her own husband so as to live with her boyfriend? World has to come back to its senses and know for once what life really is. Good post my friend.

You are right, the world has to come back to its senses. People are getting killed for nothing.
