The Forbidden Fruit


The world is broken, fraught with lies, murders, assassins and corrupt ruthless humans. Why are they even called humans when so inhumane is their nature?  Humans live on discrimination. To be more powerful than someone pleases them, gives them a sense of security. Such is the human nature that even if we all were to belong to the same caste. colour, creed, worship the same God, live in the same territory, we would find another reason to be prejudiced against.
It is hard not to be tempted to the sinful fruit pulped with wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony. The seven deadly sins. The short-term gains are alluring. It is over-whelming to see two brothers raised by the same mother be filled with so much malice with not even a tear to shed if they killed each other.
What does man not do to satisfy his greed?  The flame of selfishness burns brightly in his eyes. Pride swallows modesty. Chivalry has died. Our life is all about being ostentatious. It is a gamble of the worth of our jewels, clothes and cars, of the number of followers or the number of ‘likes’.
As soon as this bubble of fame and luxury pops and all our valuables go down the drain, that is when we close our eyes  and repent but unfortunately we realise it is just too late to undo what has already been done.



  1. Ha ha, one topic I love talking about. You answered yourself though, humans are selfish and greedy by 'nature' coupled with a pathetic society :)

    You could see this some time...

  2. It really is a crazy world. We love, we hate, we save lives, we kill lives, we pray for ourselves, we curse others, it's all a gamble.
