The Lottery

Today I read a very disturbing article about the conscience this had a story called " The Lottery " . In this was a village scene in which all the people of the village came to the lottery there was a 77 year old man who had never missed the lottery, it was a group of normal and cheerful people who had come for the lottery .The names of all the people of the village were put in by the heads of the family and then the lottery was drawn, but when it was drawn the person who got the lottery was very terrified and told the drawer to try again, but all the other people of the village wanted blood, the lottery was for stoning the person to DEATH, the author of the story told in the end of the story, that all wanted to get it over and done with so that they all can go back home for lunch, it was shocking but as I went on reading there are many instances in our normal life that also make us do these things - maybe not as hineous.... but nonwe the less bad, what about dowry deaths.... what about sati.... what about ragging..

that is food for though... please pen yuor views

What is wrong with people - the sad thing is that in many ways humans are so cruel - just look at the gladiators
