Libya

Revenge is self-defeating


Revenge is a harmful action against a person or group in response to a grievance, be it real or perceived. It is also called retribution, retaliation or vengeance.

Revenge killing is a phenomenon normally witnessed during the time of armed hostilities. Now, the time of war in Libya is over.  Furthermore, the country has an elected government.

Unrewarding Sacrifices by Indians


Day by day, communications were coming to a halt. The oil embargo on Libya had begun to affect normal life. Apart from rising prices for daily commodities, the sluggish mobile network was another worry for the Indians.  Often they would try hours and hours to make a successful call to acquaintances.

The north African country which had never witnessed power-cut for months and years even for a single minute before, did have frequent disruptions of supply during the war. That added woes to the availability of water. Many of the Indians would simply walk for a kilometer to take water from friends’ houses where generator or more water storage was likely to be available.

Failing to Thwart the Spirit of Libya


Pregnancy is the most painful experience a woman goes through in her life. She is not able to walk freely, eat freely and work freely. Every fraction of the moment she is reminded of the responsibility she has about a life in her womb and she continues to sacrifice her pleasure for the sake of a new future.

In Storm of Chaos


War has its own language to speak. It has its own story to narrate. Death and destruction are its essential features whereas chaos and confusion are its obligatory constituents.

When civil war in Libya erupted on 17th February, 2011, there was a scene of choas and confusion both among the natives and immigrants alike. While natives had their folks behind, the immigrants had hopelessness to live with.
