1000 Voices Speak for Compassion

The world stands in need of liberation my Lord,
It still has to feel your power!

We used to sing this prayer in the morning assemblies. These lines remain engraved and evergreen.They cross my mind almost everyday morning, when i open the crisp newspaper. These words form a part if my silent morning prayer. A prayer for kindness, a prayer for love, a prayer for compassion, a prayer for peace.

The recent gory, inhumane, Unbelievable, horrific incidents have evoked anxiety and rage in the society. Pakistan school children massacre, Australia cafe shootings, Charlie Hebdo brutal murders, bombings in Bangalore, uncountable bombings and killing in Syria and Iraq - The list is endless. To top it up, it's all in the name of God/ Allah/ Bhagwan/ Waheguru.
O My holy father, do not cry, for they are ignorant. They don't know what they do. They are trying to please you.
