Couriers

"They were given the choice between becoming kings or the couriers of kings. In the manner of children, they all wanted to be couriers. As a result, there are only couriers. They gallop through the world shouting to each other messages that, since there are no kings, have become meaningless. Gladly would they put an end to their miserable existence, but they dare not, because of their oaths of service."

A parable by Franz Kafka

Hey, Awais bhai, you should start thinking about writing something about the topic of globalization and cosmopolitanism now too as to how the human being with so much ethnic/racial/religious etc etc differences are able to co-exist mutually?
