Is the world still a good place to live in?
This thought struck me while sipping ginger tea and biscuit in a bustling tea stall during my evening walk.
I saw a man who had lost his legs walking up to the nearby stall to enjoy his Set Dosa. Aw. ..the zeal to live fully. These are small battles for life, for self and then there was the shopkeeper lady making sure nothing to this man's  taste is left wanting. A human helping another to live fully.
I saw a guy keeping biscuits for an ageing dog. One life trying to preserve another.
A young couple caressing a dog who looked at them with longing eyes to be petted. Two lives sharing from their overflowing cup of love with a third life, thus multiplying their own love. And increasing the life of their love by sharing more than an admiration for each other; sharing an admiration for life with its small and big blessings like the reciprocation of love from an innocent animal.
Strangers making sure that you are not uncomfortable as a woman in a crowded tea stall and making space for you to place your tea cup so that you can enjoy a dip of your biscuit in tea.
People defending authors on social media against hate comments. Thousands of motivational quotes.
I got my answer. World is worthy :)

Yes, the world is still worthy to live in even with the dark and ugly side of it.

Yes Beyond Horizon...I have been getting the same answer :)


Don’t ever try to become somebody else’s dream. That is when you lose the freedom to shape your life your own way. It is way more rewarding ...
