Wonderful People....!!!!

Last night while getting back from work, I happened to stumble upon an accident. A Bus had crashed into a car and the driver had run off. The surrounding people in the vicinity helped the person and took him for medical attention.

The people who saw the accident were terrified while few others felt sympathy for such a misshaping. Moving on just at the same time, a few blocks away i saw a newborn child playing with his father. The smile on the face of the child was truly beautiful and soothing.
I wonder whether happiness and sadness in the world is balanced. Only a thin line separating these two. How can such a terrible accident take place just a few blocks away from where the child was playing. Nevertheless the child did not care nor noticed anything except the joy on his fathers face.

This is not the only case. We all must have noticed the despair on the face of mothers who beg to keep their child fed ,the pleasure on the face of an accomplished man, the eagerness for work on the face of an fresh graduate , the indifference of the person just about to retire, the anticipation on the face of people watching the magician , the fear on the face of the magician to make the act smooth, the tears on the face of a lost person , the cry of joy on the  face of person having won a long lost battle, the weakness of people who just watch the world go on, the courage of people who strive to make things work.

These are few contradicting happenings around the world at the same time. Still we manage to live in a balanced world without paying heed to any sufferings around us nor any to the happiness of people around us.
Have we lost ourselves in this huge world. Are we not just a tiny piece of puzzle in this gigantic world.
Is there any meaning to lives of people who choose just to run down their 60 years in this world thinking they are happy.

Sometimes i wonder is this all we can do, choosing to lead our lives the way we think will keep us happy.
Is happiness our ultimate goal or is there something bigger than this world we live in. Maybe some people already know and are too secretive to share these knowledge. Even so hopefully we all can find a reason in our lives no matter how small it may be. Because we get only a single life, and we need to understand this world in this very short duration.
