Out of curiosity, a modern-day journalist during her tribal area visit asked a local tribal leader, “ Mam, is it true that your people practice human head hunting and every year sacrifice two or three persons’ lives to your God?”
The local tribal leader smiled and replied, “ Not true anymore, yes we practised it earlier but not now, I believe that we have learnt some great things from your modern civilization,” she paused, became solemn, then raised her head and perpetuated, “But I don’t understand why your modern civilization is sacrificing huge number of human lives every year for the sake of unnatural concepts like ‘Nationalism’, ‘Terrorism’, & ‘Communalism’? Your civilization should assimilate our ways of recreational life, don’t you cerebrate so”?
The journalist smiled, nodded, pivoted to see all happy,blissful,cheerful & care-free tribal faces amassed outside their cabin to partake in their annual festival and then she recalled sad, miserable, isolated, alienated and tensed faces of her modern society.
