This is what I had been waiting for.
To get into a delirium. To be affected, moved by something in life, that could lead me to express the disconnect in the 2 words that should otherwise be related. Ironically, they are way apart. The 2 words – Humanity and Reality.
We are humans. Biologically called Homo sapiens. Latin meaning for the word is wise-man. Funny, isn’t it. How wise are we? Wars over lands, corruption, murders, terrorism, rape, forgery, theft, conspiracies, etc, etc, is all what we have achieved. Today you might not be surprised to know that there are 51 subcategories of crime on Wikipedia while Humanity is just one page.
This blog entry is not to bring change. I am sure, if a number of awareness campaigns, movies, social media posts, etc. could not strike the bell, for sure, my blog post is not going to be so extraordinary that it is going to bring about the revolution which is needed. The reason for this write-up is a series of incidents in my life in the past few years have shown me the reality of how much of humanity is left within me and those around me. Not that there is no positivity around, but there are numerous elements that are horrendous. I know, no one is interested in the bygone – neither I am willing to share it (though soon I might publish a book with all whats been happening in my life) – I thereby would like to touch upon my conclusions.
I see that relations are no more what they were supposed to be like. We are related with every human in the world. Forget about showing humanity to people we do not know, we seldom forget how arguments with those who are most important in our lives, could show disrespect and bring in the bitterness, ego-clashes, etc. etc. in what was supposed to be a perfect relation. With gradual arguments, we tend to set our minds to assumptions and image certain people’s presence to always be inappropriate for our happiness. Which might not be the case. That is what leads to hating to the core of your heart. And this triggers the transformation of our blood to the deadly venom. Comments like “Larke ka khoon garam ho gaya hai!” (This man’s blood is boiling), is what acts as the catalyst. And then you gradually end up destroying all you had – your life. The same life what your mother, the only one woman who would forget(not necessarily forgive) all your felony gifted you once, by keeping you in her womb for 9 odd months. All that has gone down the drain.
Time to be human. Think.
