    Life is a gift of nature. Nature is Supreme. Man is grappling to find the secrets of Nature.

    Yes, Evil events occur. Humans are driven to the extreme act of murder for personal & political purposes. The Act of Killing a fellow human is a dastardly act.

    The State is nothing but a Collection of individuals.

    The State as a punishment sentences the criminal to Death. Therefore the State is also committing the same Dastardly Act.

    Let us en devour to understand each other and Nature.

    Peace and Equality. Stop the Death Sentence.
