Well this week is one week which history probably chose as the week to remember the important people who were born on earth . This week saw the death of 3 very important people who had shaped the history of the world . The three people were very diverse in their ideologies , their way of tackling a problem and also the problem they faced . But one thing was common between all 3 of them . All 3 of them were loved by the people ... they were loved by the masses .
This is the face which all of u have seen somewhere ... either on T-shirts , or on rock concerts , or on hippie parties ( too many in Goa ) . He is the face of rebellion against oppression all around the world . The saviour of the havenots .... . He is the one which is given most coverage newspapers and blogs all around the world . The socialist guerrilla , the guy who tho stood for the people but his ways were bloody . He wanted an eye for an eye , wanted to take everything in his own hands . He was the guy who even 30 years after his death is worthy of hogging columns in newspapers.
The "people's princess " . She was the darling of everybody , right from the charitable work she did to the way she handled the media . Even today we remember her . Even today we remember that fateful night in Paris when she died .
The lady who lived for the poor , who cared for the poor , " the saint of the gutter " . Mother Teresa lived her life for the others . She never hurt anybody , never did bad to anybody .... but still the newspapers gave her the least coverage . For them it was just another person who died sometime . The work which she did was not important to give into their writing because it was not sensational . it did not involve killing people. It did not involve he rock concerts . It did not involve naxal ideology , it did not involve drugs .
Even lady Diana was in news because Camella Parker refused to attend her funeral . Their was reports that at the time of death lady Diana was pregnant which were later proved wrong .
What is the world coming to ? Are we only interested in gossip , paparazzi , conspiracy , scandals , violence , drugs . Have the old beliefs which were taught to us as a child lost their importance . Have we become so indifferent that we do not stop talking ill about some person who has died .
Seriously it is time to introspect . Look into ourselves , think what we have become . What our media has become .... what we want to hear . All these 3 people changed history , all 3 of them were important but the way in which they were remembered was not good .
May their souls rest in peace !!!
