The two ends

December 21, 2006

Two headlines in the newspaper on the same day caught my eye.

1. “200 new millionaires to be born” – The moment WNS listed their stock on the exchange.

2. “5 day old baby sold for Rs.21” – The mother didnt have food to eat and the only way she could buy any food was by selling the only valuable thing she had – her baby.

Both are about making money.
Both are about getting richer.
Both are about people.

One is about dreams being realised. The other about dreams being shattered.
