Fuel prices hiked, scream newspaper and other media headlines.
Roll back, urge everyone but those in power.
The Sensex falls by a few hundred almost daily.
Inflation in double digits.
Crude reaches new peak.

Life is never a bed of roses. We have no control over whatever happens abroad or for that matter our politicians. We need to continue with our work, make a difference wherever we can and things will change for the better soon. They have too. It cannot be a one way fall downwards…
Let the bears and bulls continue their fight. We have work to do. Nation building is something each one of must contribute to.
