If Sad trumps Happy, prayers are needed

I chance on a post on Alphy's Facebook wall about a li'l boy who's missing since yesterday from a suburb in Bangalore. The person who put the post up asks for the news to be shared so more people know. Right now, I am praying like crazy for the li'l boy. I hope he's found sooner than soon, and reunited with his parents.

Tell you the truth, I can't get this tragic news out of my mind. What's more, in some way I am living the terror this li'l boy's parents are going through. I guess it must be because I am a father to two li'l kids. It possibly is also because when Jaden was younger we lost him for a while at a mall in Bangkok, and I know what I went through. Or maybe it must be the growing up I've done. Read that as growing up to greater sensitivity.

Whatever the reasons, I am convinced of one thing. I don't think I am ever going to be more happy than sad. Ever. Don't get me wrong, It isn't that I'm not grateful for all the blessings in my life, and the happiness that follows. I am! Believe me. Its just that the misery that surrounds me overwhelms the happy bits that bloom away in my head. Plus I for one can't live without feeling such sorrow. Maybe I won't do anything about all the wrongs, or maybe I will.

One thing's for sure, I'll feel the pain whenever I can. Whenever I must.

I am convinced the next era in marketing would be one where sellers who thrive will be those who can live their consumer's lives. To do such living marketers will have to stop all the faking and step in line with their consumer's psyche, and genuinely feel like they do.

Much like I am doing right now.

P.S. - I hope you're praying too. For the li'l boy. Don't bother about the name. Just pray.
