The Lord Giveth and The Lord Taketh Away!

There was once this rumour that Michael Jackson was losing his hearing. Sometime in 1984-85, after he released Bad, flew this rumour. And in a press statement, it was said that Michael believed that the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Apart from the remorse I felt due to the rumour (that was engineered), I remembered this English adage.

Today, my wife read me Amitabh Bachchan‘s tweet from the sets of KBC. He recounted a tale of a participant whose husband was kidnapped by the Naxalites and killed within a year of their marriage. She was 8 months pregnant. The child knew the father through photographs. Some have it so hard in life while some, live the cushy cosmo life, oblivious of what reality looks like to many! How we take for granted what we have in our lives.

The ominous streetlights passing by my car window against the glittering skyline of Dubai suddenly made me realise that the Lord truly giveth and taketh away!
