"O Lord, the world is on fire; save it with your mercy.
whichever religious path one may be following,
save him."

I guess today is one of those days when we start taking our personal tragedies a little less seriously.

May all innocent who died today rest in peace...

Hi Deepak,

Congrats my man !! ...

I wish I could write all the nice things ... just that today's events are settling down in me and making my mood viscous by the minute.

Although it seems very unlikely; I wish your daughter, and all other children of her generation grow up in a better world that we live in today.

I wonder if some day I have a daughter, how in the world would I ever be able to explain to her what my and previous generations did to make this world such an ugly place? With what face would I tell her to follow one religion over another? With what comfort would I tell her to make one country her home over another?

I know I'm thinking too much; (have been blamed for that before); there's only so much I will remember by the end of the day. I'm just rambling; forget it. It's a bad hangover from my previous lives.

Some days I wish there was an undo button for my day someplace, I could cover my ears, shut my eyes and wake up again to a different day. I so wish I could do that ...

Give your daughter all the happiness you can while you can. When the world takes over, she could use some to fight it better.

-- Rishi

P.S.: Kiss your daughter on the forehead for me will you please? And tell her I'm sorry for being in such a bad mood today; (emotional weekling that I am). Some day I'll make it up to her.
