here are some facts that you wish you never knew. Sometimes, it is easier to pretend that we are wearing blinders and thereby, move on in life. Many times, it is recommended not know how inhumanly human beings can behave!
Is it poverty? Or greed for money? I really don’t know.
Couple of days before, I was telling my team that I feel disgusted to have Pani Puri in Bangalore anymore. The reason being a viral WhatsApp video which showed that the Pani in Puri contains human urine. They said that such urine would make it tastier? I don’t know if they add instead of water.
That was when my manager startled me with another information. Being a person who spends lots of time in Railway stations and trains, I wish I didn’t came to know about it at all.
He showed me YouTube video which is a news coverage by CNN IBN. I showed that the tea vendors in Railway Stations mix white Fevicryl – Fabric paint in water. It gives water a milk-like texture. A tea vendor under veil was telling that instead of spending hundreds of rupees on milk, he needs to spend a mere INR15!!!
I mean really?
Where is human values? Why so much importance is attached to money than moral values? Where are we heading? Adulteration becomes a way of life and corruption becomes a religion that is followed by everyone irrespective of caste, creed or color.
Why do we fail to understand that what we give comes back to us?
Or am I being too philosophical when people fight their own battle to make ends meet… fill theirs and family’s stomach that they don’t care about anything but the present!?
Whatever be the reason, this piece of information shudders me…
