Can we be more empathetic, really?The entire country and most parts of North India, seems to be in the grip of a very severe heat wave. If reports are to be believed, travel by trains in the second sleeper or unreserved compartments is just horrible, as the heat can simply make one very sick.
Within cities like Chennai, people run around for water in some many places. The rich and the super rich are quite safe as they have their own resources and ground water is quite okay in some parts. Yet, can't the rick identity some pockets of small lakes that are still available, clean them up and then save it, much like how the public of Coimbatore saved the Ukkadam lake? We need firm action in this regard. It is just empathy. The rich and the corporate houses need more of empathy.
Our social condition also includes those who suffer so much. Should we not do our bit to make their lives a bit better? What can be done in this regard?
