PAIN.......CRY........Questions?

“An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage” – Description by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP)

Couple of weeks before, I had just woke up from my sleep. Was enjoying a cup of Tea with love and spending some valuable time with my younger son before he leaves for his school. Simply, I got up and turned around. There was a lightening phenomenon on the lower back of mine. I broke in to tears. I could not sit down, I could not bend, I could not move. My goodness, it was a terrible beginning for the day. Oh my, wait! what am I trying to communicate?

The killing of innocent people elsewhere in the world (9/11, 26/11, Etc.,)

The killing of our brotherhood in the neighborhood (Srilanka, Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Israel, Nigeria, China)

Mourning for a death of global persona (Michael Jackson, Saddam Hussein, Prabhakaran)

Watching a movie with a moving theme (Mahanadhi, Pithamagan, Pursuit of Happiness, Ruben “HURRICANE” Carter, Remember the Titans)

Coming to know the following thru’ media: Rape, Racial Discrimination, Gender Discrimination, Ill treatment of transgender, Flesh trading, Starvation.

All the above breaks me in to tears. Is it because of Pain? Is it because my inability to stop it? Is it because I emotionally suffer along with them? Is it because practically I could not give an helping hand to avoid such?

    In my knowledge about you, you are a kind hearted person. So, it is the nature.

    Good comparison.

  3. That is fantastic symbolism you made inspite of that killing pain. I must appreciate your creativity(rather stupidity) on writing/thinking something before visiting your doctor.

    You have listed all the pains in sequence or in common. But I feel on top of all or the worst of all the pain of inability in performing our committed duties will remain as a scene till the last moment of our eyelids. To name a few the duties one must do for the parents and our fellow Tamil people in Eelam.

    That's totally very good, made me to think a lot and worry a lot.
