Degrees Of Freedom

Yesterday in my apartment there was power shut down for around 4 hours. These four hours made me realize how vulnerable we all are. That every minute we depend and take for granted all the things which are present. As there was no power..no hot food as the electric stove does no work, no hot water as the geyser does not work, no internet as the wirless does not work and to top it all of there was this unending darkness as the apartment was not well ventilated. I felt isolated.
Whereas on one side we have nations building weapons to give their citizens security ,there is the other side where these small things just stop our lives all together and make us weak and dependent..
We are the prisoners of own empires. We build it with bricks of discrimination. The divide we form among ourselves on the basis of religion, money and other status symbols. Brick by brick we make a wall which no one can enter...
