We may sound cynical but how ironical that certain set of people are literally plundering
‘today’ for the ‘gift’ as if there was no tomorrow. The reference is obviously to all the
‘so-called’ newsmakers being reported day in and day out by our media who are grabbing our attention for all the wrong reasons. It is Christmas time
– a time of festivities and festoons that is symbolic of giving and sharing. But unfortunately what the scum of
‘scams, leaks and scandals’ stinks of is – sharing and giving on a
‘self-service’ basis. Is it Christmas bells ringing or bells of warning that the worst is yet to come ?
Well on a reflective mode, we think it is the lack of self-discipline and governance at every level
– individual, family, corporate, society, nation et al as a unit, that is the cause of the morass we are in. However, hope and change are eternal. Therefore, on a positive note, let us hope that the cheer and good spirit of the festive season brings the required change in thinking and our actions.
This issue carries ‘Govt. news’ as well as ‘articles’ in equal measure. Hope you find them useful and informative.
