WILL THERE BE NO END TO VIOLENCE?
It has broken out again. This thoughtless violence ! Houses are being burnt; shops looted, poor men, women and children brutally murdered-all in the name of religion-in the name of God. Which God is it that wants violence, that wants his beautiful creations destroyed in so cruel a manner? I don’t know – sometimes I feel so disgusted – why don’t people realize, it is their own fellow human beings they are killing?
It seems that centuries of war and violence have not made us any wiser. We continue to be brutal, insensitive and insecure. We continue to fight for water, money and God. It’s so pathetic! God, will there be no respite from this mindless violence? How long will you go on sitting on your golden throne doing nothing about it? Have some mercy on the world. You once said, “Let there be light”. Now, please say, “Let there be peace.” Dear God, hear my prayer.
2. Let us read this page from Rishibha’s diary for 17 December, 2011
Sun, 17 December, 2014
Today, we received our report cards for the second terminals. My marks are O.K. It is Anubha’s result that took me by surprise. It literally floored me. She scored perfect 100 in two subjects. In computer, she has missed the mark by a whisker. Her result is great.
Anubha is a friend and I rejoice at her success. But her success has filled me with a strong resolve. I have got to be at the top. I know I have it in me. I simply don’t stretch myself, and that is my weakness. However, from today on till the end of March, it is going to be nothing but studies. Movies are out and so are friendly visits. This time I’m going to keep my promise.

26 February, 20
I have still not recovered from the shock of the two bomb blasts that took place in our city two days ago. How can we go on killing innocent people for the sake of so called ‘revenge’. How can terrorists get away with killing people, destroying property? Why is our government always late in safe guarding the lives of its citizens? Why blame the government what are we, the sufferers, doing about it? I’m fortunate that my area was not touched – but tells me what can I do? Why is God so cruel?
I feel so helpless and can only pray
4.Write a diary entry “An Adventure Trip during Summer Holiday.”
I was very eager to go on a picnic. Some of my friends consented and we made a programme to go near a lake. My sister also accompanied us. There we saw a very beautiful palace surrounded by water. Two strangers were talking there. The two men were talking about a hidden treasure, when they went for lunch, unfortunately the map for the passage where the treasure was hidden, dropped from their belongings. To reach the palace, we had to pass through many narrow passages and ultimately we succeded in reaching the spot. Thus we found the treasure. Then we informed about it to our parents and the police.
