care enough for the living

A man passed away about six weeks ago and his wife died too of cancer last week leaving may be four or six children behind. The youngest one is an eight year old mental retarded girl. About twenty two years ago, the couple fell in love with each other, got married, had children but never lived a happy life. Both were not literate. About ten years ago, the man divorced the wife in anger and then repented. Somehow they came to live together, had more children and then within last two months, both died.
Another man from the same area died few months ago leaving seven children, six daughters and a son, behind. In his life time, he never aloud wife and daughters to step out unless accompanied by him or his son. His daughters are literate though but have no idea about the world outside their home. Since they have lost their only source of income, don’t know how to survive.
These are only two of the many sad stories of Qasbah Colony, Karachi. Both families are uneducated and off course not well-trained just like 97% of our population. The security conditions there are as poor as in any other area of Pakistan.
These people are totally unaware of the meaning of life and death, don’t know there has to be a reason to live and to die, careless about their present and in complete darkness about their future.
