Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehooba Mufti pours milk into a sacred spring at the annual festival at the Kheer Bhawani Temple in Ganderbalon 

It is a virtual sprint in the morning hours for me from Monday to Friday. Rarely I find time to take a leisurely glance of newspaper, though it is partly substituted with reading important headlines. But when I return home in the night, I scan the newspaper diligently to find any worthy stuff that could be shared.

The idea is to take the news in seed form from the source but churn out a different story. I believe this way, I could reach out to more folks in finding solutions to some of the nagging problems that are confronting the world.

When, it comes to the story, a newspaper reported two contrasting stories in it's Main Page : 'Worst Mass Shooting in US that left 50 dead in gay club' and other 'Chief Minister of Jammu and kashmir Mehooba Mufti poured milk at a Kheer Bhawani Temple in Ganderbal, a place near Srinagar, India.

How to perceive and correlate these diagonally different stories ? The religion they embraced is one and the same, but it is not at all a point of discussion here. The point is, it is responsive brain Vs reactive brain that leads to different outcomes, one positive and other negative. On one side, the young man over-reacted when he saw kissing scene of gay persons and went on a shooting spree, where as, in another instance, a matured woman who is holding a constitutional post responded to the public wish that may go a long way in helping the State to overcome all hurdles on the road to peace.

The subtle lesson of life is to respect life in all forms. Being dogmatic don't make any sense in this diverse world. The role of elders is very crucial to guide youth and youth must tolerate difference of opinion . Past experience showed that violence inflicts loss on both sides. So the wise minds should not make irresponsible & irrational war cries to incite violence and one must realize that killing anyone would never make the argument strong.

When everybody accept the existence of a Power beyond human realm, it is ludicrous to wrangle with the mode of worship. When the Creator has no issue in what way you are praying, there is no point of settling scores with a gun !
