Indeed, later or sooner we all have to die but it seems that our ruling elite, bureaucrats and technocrats have completely forgotten this truth. Had they remembered then, they would have shown mercy, would have done justice and performed their duties diligently, they would not have embezzled the state’s resources and they would not have shown utter neglect and apathy as they are showing, when ill-fated poor people are dying of searing heat, non-availability of water. I don’t know when we will start speaking up and shake the conscience of our rulers. Indeed, one day we all have to die and face the consequences of our deeds. Is there anyone to remind our ruling elite?
