Hrithik Roshan said: “Just a thought I had -Atrocities in d world. We r not helpless. There’s something we all can do. D people who kill in anger feel a cause 2 do so, they feel anger fr what they must’ve experienced in their lives. Fr them in their minds they r right. They feel justified.Anger is something we all feel, but we haven’t learnt to resolve it with love. D extent of your anger determines d atrocity u want 2 inflict. We all r examples of this. We all r guilty of dis. D atrocities around d world is just a manifestation of d anger at d individual level. U want to do something about d children who lost their lives in Peshawar. Then wage a war against your own anger every time someone causes u pain, every time injustice is done unto you, practice perspective, learn to resolve it with love. Watch ur reaction. Don’t feel helpless by thinking u can’t do anything fr d people who died. Make a change within today.Expressing your concern is not enough. Make that change at d core. Your core. And know that thru that u have helped d world. Practice ur own peace fr a peaceful world.”
