          The amount of hatred and anger across the border and within these countries seems to upset nature too. God did not create earth to be destro by Taliban or ISIS, VHP or RSS, American forces or Russian army, drug dealers and environmental polluters, corrupt politicians and greedy businessmen. This earth was made for everyone to live together in harmony. But what have we done to it ? I am so sick and tired of all this. I want to close my eyes, ears and mouth and hide somewhere. I am going to stop reading all news from today.
