    What has happened to this country. Many killings are involved with infants and adults. In a recent incident a son killed his mother is a terrible situation. The rulers of this country now have embraced with international affairs and building infrastructure where as discipline has come down to 0 level. Corruption and thuggery are top in level. Is state patronage is there?

    We are breeding a society with mental illness. Disregard for human life has become an epidemic today.

    All these are because of not knowing how to control the anger. People need to be educated to look at a problem from others point of view also, and there is a rule of law in the country that give justice they deserved. Now you can see only a very few youngsters go to the temples. Parents have to send their children to temple for worshiping, and at the temples monks have to preach love and peace!

    we have reduced our religions to mere rituals. we do not sincerely believe in the core values of our religions. as long as we cling to mere rituals and forget the truths underlying them there is no hope of redemption for us.
