The New Year of the Tiger is just around the corner.
Festivities are the times to think of family members, relatives and friends.
These are occasions to welcome each other into our common space. Mankind shares 99.5 to 99.9% genes, and as such, we are more similar to each other than two vases produced from a single factory.
It is the environment in which different races stayed that contributed to the differences in skin colour , languages and cultures. All these differences are acquired and not real.
The truth is we are all similar inside. Our brains are the same, hearts are the same, intestines are the same.
Even the religions we practice have similarities in which all urge to be tolerant to other faiths.
So on this eve of a festival, let u all ponder why we cannot be nice to others, why cannot tolerate others, why we cannot wish each other well.
I am posting a picture wishing all the people of this world, irrespective of different colours and faith, a very happy and uplifting Year of the tiger 2010. (Those who know me will say that my hereticity is showing up again!!) 🙂
