This is very sad, very beautiful…
For the flood-stricken in Pakistan, unfortunately, this will not be much of an Eid.
Oh, how awful – I didn’t know.
“There are ships sailing to many ports, but not a single one goes where life is not painful.” Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet
Many in the world have an inseparable relationship with sorrow:
I bade good morrow,
And thought to leave her far away behind;
But cheerly, cheerly,
She loves me dearly;
She is so constant to me, and so kind”…John Keats (Song of the Indian Maiden)
Sad ……. but apt to the present times , especially in India with the recent Uttarakhand floods ..And sometimes i feel discontented with life , when I should be grateful .
Thank you for your remarks. I wrote the story under the premise that “The need to let suffering speak is a condition of all truth,” as stated by Theodor Adorno, the German philosopher.
Thank you for introducing Adorno to me , always a pleasure to read different philosophies / philosphers
Adorno is right. Well written and you have touched the nerve. Thank you! tomas ☼
I very much value your encouraging remarks. Thank you.
Sad but up to the current situation. Hope it will help to increase awareness.
