Why Is God So Cruel? Get Well Soon, Both Hyderabad and Sneha!!!
U’mmm, Why is God so cruel?? Its a beautiful question to ask and write, while looking at the sun, who is going to have a sound sleep.
How many times have you asked this question in your life?
Well, I have asked it umpteen number of times and was tempted to ask again last afternoon, when I heard the news that my colleague Sneha Sreekumar met with a bike accident, last Tuesday night.
She was going along with her brother and when he applied a sudden brake she fell from the bike and a truck went over her right hand..
I can see the reaction on your face and I had the same expression when I heard about this, because we are all birds of the same feather, I believe.
Let me tell you that I wrote close to 500 words last night, but due to a server issue all my data got deleted. Again, I was tempted to ask this question, Why is God so unfair?
That’s when I thought about the words of a wise man named Soni Somarajan (and also about Edison who lost his entire laboratory and built it from scratch) who was my senior in college - “He is a fighter who travels to all parts of the world on a wheel chair” and he told me – “When you go through difficult situations in life, you ask the question -
From there you start an inner journey which may take you to your ultimate destiny. Sounded interesting, but was a little heavy for me to digest, then..You will be having the same feeling now and it may take some time for you to digest, as well.
I started pondering over that thought for a few days and have asked people who have gone through even tougher situations in life..
Meanwhile let’s pray for Sneha to get well soon and talk more on the question – Why is God so cruel?
Sneha is a courageous girl and she will come back with the same vigor and passion.
This afternoon, I was talking about Sneha to one of my school mates named Sebin Joe, who met with a bike accident a few years back, suffered pain and agony similar to Sneha or even worse than her (sorry, each one’s pain is different and you can’t do a comparison).
Sebin told me the same thing that Mr Soni said. Sebin agreed to share his inspirational life story through inspiring citizen in a few days. He has already started compiling his life, to inspire you.
You will also be keen to hear how my mentor reacted when his 10 month old baby boy passed away a couple of weeks back. He didn’t say why is God so cruel?
“Instead, he said God has sent me an angel for 10 months and now he has taken him back.” You need an amazing attitude to look things from that perspective and our purpose is to make you a stronger human being, to lead a happy and well balanced life, irrespective of the challenges that you face.
So, what do you infer from this?
There are certain things which is in your hands and certain things are out of your control.
I have personally faced many difficult situations where my dad was paralyzed for a month and several other stuff which I will share with you soon, again to inspire you to take action.
Falling down is quite common and lying down in the same spot is even more common.
I feel, the one who wins are those who bounce back with zeal, zest and synergy.
So tell me whether you would ask this question ( Why is God so cruel?) again and what would you tell to somebody who asks this questions. This post will only be complete with your thoughts and feedback. So, let your floodgates open and please let us know your thoughts.
Sorry, one last thing.. Just wanted you pray for all our brothers and sisters in Hyderabad..Get well soon Hyderabad, India and Sneha..
