Customs and traditions have always shaped the lives of our ancestors and it went on to influence decisions of generations to generation. At that time, we lived in peace, loved in peace now bloodshed is written off as records of the plots of evil doings of religious extremist. Civilisation proliferated all these vices; Did the quest for knowledge put a clause to the normal course of life? Life is cut short, affected by changes in government, social-economic policies; currently recession has pooled out resources of the government making inflation is screaming headlines on every publication

Though the tempest has turned my smiles upside down and my life like a river of sorrow in which Im drawn.
Yet shall I stand
Unshaken for as long as it last.
To God: The Creator Of Words
