The Lost Humanity


When I was a kid, I lived in a town and was termed a human.
But when I grew up I found myself in a jungle.
Am I still at the same place, was what I first thought
Yes was the answer that I got.

So... what has changed from then to now?

  1. The fact that then you were innocent and now you no more are.....'cause you have grown up.

  7. An adult is insecure. Hence scared and laws of jungle apply to him.

  10. yes sumthin has definitely changed.....is it my delusion.....probably not.....it may b eyes looking at a situation....but interpreted differently "ILLUSION".....d innocence of a kid wud nvr ever see d humanity which is lost (not applied 2 those kids whose childhood has lost due 2 fading humanity).....its just as we grow up outlook changes....n den dis question arises...

    I alwys remember wen thoughts n Q abt humanity cums up...1ce my teacher Q us...wat wud u call Mother Teresa s nature of caring,helpful,loving....many of us gve innovative adj as superhuman,angel,heavenly.....he shouted NO,DIS R HUMAN QUALITY...truly we hve forgotten...how we shud b? n wat we r??
