Its all about people

The system is a double edged sword.

On one hand it ensures orderliness and sustenance of civilisation, on the other hand it becomes the root cause of evils, obsctructor of justice and tool for destruction and pain.

System can be an idea or an institution,a principle or a belief.It can be anything from religions, nations,casteism,atheism,grammar,language,deadlines and other social setups right upto calendars ,traffic system to dresscodes.
And we identify ourselves to a convenient shade of grey and start siding to groups and fighting...
The issue is when people lose focus of the purpose of the system and the system rises above the spirit with which the system was put in place.
People fought wars for hundreds of years for a variety of these systems and created more and more systems to "solve" the problems created by these systems....more systems,more problems,more confusions.
On one hand , system ensures that the common man gets his basic needs covered like food,security and peaceful living and on the other hand its the very system that is the cause of majority of human beings not getting these basic amenities.
The issue is when people forget the very basic reason ,the systems are formed.
Its all about people.
This is being forgotten by those who blindly follow the system and vehemently oppose any deviation from the conformance even if it defeats the whole purpose.But the most funny aspect is the case of those who oppose certain systems ,complaining that it results in pain and injustice to mankind.These people forget why they oppose the system and stick to the opposition ,forgetting the basic principle to their stand.
Its all about people....

One fine morning as i was travelling to my office in the local train ...i was wondering.. Is it possible for the human race to thrive and live without a system or atleast to live with a system without problems?? problems created and manifested by the very tools that were envisioned to ensure peaceful and happy living of fellow human beings.
Not until human beings realise one simple universal truth...
Its all about people
