If there was no grief, there would not be happiness either.
Happiness and Grief are not absolute - They are absolutely Relative.

Mahatma Gandhi would have remained MK Gandhi..
Abhimanyu would have remained just another archer..
Socrates would have never become a philosopher..
The Du pont's would have remained in France..
Mother Teresa would have been a charming daughter, wife, mother and grandmother..
Dada would have remained retired Sourav Ganguly..(This must have been the work of a hacker - mind hacker?)
Years of Struggle, Years of Pain,
All to see his efforts end in vain..
Because his 'Analytical Engine',
Was born too Early..
Early,by a century..
We made his Analytical Engine in to a Computer,
After much toil, After much Struggle..
If Charles Babbage was born today,
Imagine what he could do to our computer..
Because his Struggle,
Was much greater than our struggle..
Let grief striketh upon thee....
Wish not for its abstinence,
But the will to fight its sustenance.
Because there is no mystery,

War in Afghanistan.... So many innocent civilian casualities....
War in Iraq.... So many innocent civilian casualities....
War in Kargil.... So many innocent civilian casualities....
Who is innocent?
The soldier, who is constantly at risk of his life, Who has left all his loved ones and may not see them again, Who is fighting, not for himself but for the nation....
The civilian, who updates himself about the number of lives lost by watching TV, Comfortabily blogging from his home expressing deep concern, Who intends to donate paltry amounts everytime there is a war....
