Science teaches us that every action has an opposite reaction. In our day to day lives, we continue doing the deeds expected of us. Sometimes, with an open mind, we tend to reach out to others and be a helping hand to get a job done.
As is expected, at times we succeed but on a few occasions, we may not be successful. Many a times, you are glorified, only if things work out right, but a failure attracts condemnation, for no fault of yours. This attitude deters people to come forward with a helping hand.
But there are instances also, where the system failures are deliberate and man-made. Take for example the recent deaths of over 70 innocent children in Gorakhpur, U.P. It is reported that the horrific incident took place due to shortage of oxygen cylinders at the hospital. What a sickening and heinous crime on the poor souls. Who is responsible for this tragedy? Amid wild allegations against individuals and of system failures, the blame game, continues at a furious pace. The suppliers of oxygen cylinders, doctors, hospital management, government ministers and officials, all blaming one another for this sordid fiasco.
In our own State of Goa, the recent deaths of two youngsters allegedly due to overdose of drugs, should make us hang our heads in shame. Here again, the blame game is on Official version and eye-witness accounts of this incident are totally different.
Let us hope and pray that the culprits responsible for all this are made to pay for their misdeeds and may the souls of the unfortunate victims rest in peace.
We, at Pormoll Editorial Board, would like to thank God, for blessing our Editor, Dr. Alfredo Antao, who is now back in Aquem, after undergoing treatment and rehabilitation. His will power and full faith in our Lord, is an inspiration to all of us. We wish him well.
I take this opportunity in wishing all our teachers a ‘Happy Teacher’s Day’ on 5th Sept, and a ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ on 8th Sept. May the 8th of Sept, the birthday of our heavenly Mother, be an occasion for us to rejoice and celebrate the joyous event. Happy Feast to one and all.
Until we meet again.
