  1. Their existential Vacuum or meaninglessness engendered their quest for themselves in their possessions, not knowing where to look for their identities. They have eyes but cannot see, ears but cannot hear, minds but could not think of anything else other than food,shelter or clothes. Never contemplate their presence in the universe, the world etc., the question: Who am I?, what am I doing here? What is good life? What is love? and What is my relationship with everything. Look: forget it…

  2. Intelligent indeed!! Selling fuel and kerosene in their streets and homes… So sad!! 😭
