  5. Failure of humans, on their part to realize, the dignity of life.
    Failure of Burmese Govt. to give utmost importance to the rights of common people.
    Failure of compassion!
    All of them deserve a better future somewhere else, than here.
    Slander of the Law of Universe & the dignity of life in each human being!!
    For long, this was waiting to happen..
    N it happened..
    Crime against humanity committed!
