Early morning 7.00 strikes the clock and I am with my black coffee sitting in front of television to have a quick update on what is going in and around the world. All I get to see is killing, economical drifts, politics and stories of people who are still waiting for a ray of hope that could bring some light into their lives. Such an unpleasant feel in the early morning to realize that, while you are having the privilege to have a hot coffee someone in the other corner of the world is dying fighting for a glass of water. As I lean back in my sofa, I was thinking how long one would ignore these things. Not watching Television is the only option to keep you away from these things.
