    A hungry abandoned five day old baby boy, who was God's creation and HIS joy, on the cold floor of the train was found,. The infant cried and screamed for people around, to listen to his soul stirring pleas: "Help me survive please. My Maker trusted my life with selfish human parents who were merciless". Can anyone guess who made this helpless baby cry? What force made this child try to draw the attention of the kind hearted? It was GOD who has always heeded because He is every one's Protector, saviour, lover and helper. Any one of His creations in pain or who ever is being slain, is in fact GOD -His miniscule grain. Every creation is an extension of it's Creator's total being. When the wicked are sinning the all seeing, all knowing God is cringing. His response will have an apt and proper timing.
