Location: The MRTS, Madras
Here, it never was about winning
As much as about survival, daily groceries and a bathroom.
Resurrecting the dead is still restrained to Hollywood.
The title is a reference to Season 1, Episode 2 of The Wire. In this Episode ('The Detail'), Lt. Cedric Daniels' wife Marla says- "You cannot lose if you do not play."
Mexico's updated drug-related death statistics is 34,612 in the last four years. In the Horn of Africa, "deaths are running at two per 10,000 adults or four per 10,000 children every day" as observed by The Economist. According to the Lancet Survey, there have been 601,027 violent deaths out of 654,965 excess deaths from March 2003 to June 2006 in Iraq. Hi Ho, as Kurt Vonnegut would say.

you miraculously find new reasons, to breathe.

*The title is borrowed from Learn to Fly, by the Foo Fighters. Needless to say, the song has absolutely nothing to do with my blog post. It is a mere act of convenience to hide my inability to come up with competent titles. Do listen to the song.
