Starring at steam coming out of my hot tea in my favorite tea mug, one thought after another came in my mind and then faded away just like hot steam from my tea started to settle down.
I then looked at the title I gave to my article – “5 fingers”. Instantly my mind started to reel at various incidents around the globe among various communities, religions, race, and countries. Of course media plays a very powerful role in delivering these incidents to us.

Whatever, the impression might be given by media, the outcome sometimes fades away instantly and sometimes it lasts forever.
Back in school days I always used to wonder what does “developing as a person” really mean.

Hiding myself behind a tree
With tears in my eyes,
Dust on my face,
Slippers in my feet,
And veil on my head.
