Why this life?

I have wondered for a long time why this life? At the outset the question may seem pretty ridiculous but then it makes you wonder why this life? 

Let’s look at an example. Imagine a beautiful Apple Tree full of apples. One fine morning 2 apples fall from the tree. One of the apples lands on beautiful fertile soil with lots of sunshine and ample water, the other one lands on extremely bad soil with very bad water and not enough sunshine. As time passes by the Apples detoriate and the seeds come out. Overtime the seeds germinate, one apple tree each, tiny little saplings. It’s obvious that the sapling which is on the fertile soil will grow up fast and will turn into a beautiful Apple Tree tree, but the Apple sapling which is on really bad soil will take its time to grow. It will look crooked, its branches will not be strong and it may not even give that many apples. Whose fault is it? Who is responsible for the fate of these two apple trees. They come from the same apple tree but they have vastly different lives. I ask you today, who’s to blame?

The apple tree on the bad soil can try really hard but its life is always going to be different. 

That is the nature of life on earth.
