In response to Daily Prompts – The Eight Sin
The Seven Sins are actually sufficient list of sins that humans can have. Deadly. Unfortunate. But sadly, there are new sins that get added every now and then I will try to highlight it here..
As said in Srimad Bhagvatham (Bhagwad Gita – holy book of Hindus);
Religion, truthfulness, cleanliness, tolerance, mercy, duration of life, physical strength and memory will all diminish day by day because of the powerful influence of the age of Kali.

Humans will lose it.. And the ones who possess these Sins are the ones who rule their world. Sad but true. As rightly said in Gita, wealth is another Sin that has become a pride and a source for power. Another one is backstabbing – say one thing to you and another deceitful thing behind your back.. Another one harm to animals/nature thinking we humans are the sole owners of this earth. The list can be never ending for we humans have become such.
