Fault

A young boy, walking – quite rightly – on the footpath was transformed into pulp in a matter of seconds by a car driven by an alcoholic out-of-control rich brat.


It was a normal newspaper report I came across recently. This boy paid the price because someone else was drunk driving.

When I lay on bed that night I thought how many times it has happened to me. I did things the way they should have been done and yet paid the price because some alcoholic out-of-control brat (God?) rammed his car (destiny??) onto me squashing my hopes and will into pulp. I mean what else the boy could have done if not walk on the footpath?


And the question – whose fault was it – continues to remain unanswered in my mind.

Nobody's fault ... Its just that some things are meant to be that way, I guess

Some dreams...and at times life itself.. are just meant to be crushed and withered...

a really true and touching little story....everyone gives their best shot at watever they do keeping only one thing in mind wat will suit them the best and not harm them or others....bt at times the same deeds turn completely against us...making us speechless and shocked!!!
bt i guess thats the irony of lyf...
