Thank and Pray

I came across some really touching photographs on social media and Internet. These pictures are painfully stirring and I do not have more words to describe my feelings. I was rather stoned into silence when I saw these. These pictures will also make us stop cribbing about our lives. I hope so. It is not my purpose to drown you into gloom and sadness. Rather, I feel that along with our personal celebrations this New year, we must take out a moment to pray for peace and happiness for all the beings trapped in such bitter conditionsSome of the pictures are given below.

A baby elephant is trying hard to wake up his dead mother, shot by hunters.


An Afghan war survivor eats a bread made of grass.


A child bride enjoys her marriage ceremony, not understanding what it really means. Her groom sits next to her.


A mental asylum in Kandahar, Afghanistan. All the patients are usually tied to hooks. That's the treatment they receive for their whole lives.


A young cancer patient.


No words...

These are just married Child-brides with their husbands who will be legally allowed to consummate marriage once these girls enter 9th year of age.


Finally, something positive- A dog saved from drowning by a dolphin.


My sincerest apologies if these have spoiled your mood for any reason but I could not stop myself from sharing these pictures. 

This New Year, kindly thank God for the life you have.

I got these images via e-mail fwds or on social media.

  6. There is so much injustice which plagues the world, starvation, war crimes, social and economic unbalance, etc but child abuse and violence against women are the cruellest! Our reach as a common man is limited, but we can pray for all those souls out there who deserve a better life!

  12. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my
    opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
