For a couple of days my mind has been in chaos. Many thoughts have been swirling inside it. We are too confined to our own lives and now I’m ashamed of it. There’s a poem written by Pablo Neruda named Keeping Quiet. In it he asks us the humans to take a moment and think about the lives of our brothers. It’s one thing we always fail to do.
Trump’s travel ban have put many students in deep agony. They can’t meet with their family. They have to choose between family and education. There’s no greater pain than being cut off from family. I hope their wounds heal soon. If you are reading this I want you to know that my heart too cries out for you. While many of us worry about what to wear, which restaurant to go many out there are battling for the existence and survival of their lives. I can feel the pain in my heart and it’s excruciating. The world slowly stepping into the path of monarchy. People (we) have lost the voice.
Everything is starting to become meaningless. Governance, education, all sectors are now run as per the choice of one single individual. Masses are being silenced. If we let ourself to be silenced then doubtlessly we are going to regret it. Atleast for a single day step out of your comfort zones and stand with your brother. There’s not much time to spread hate amongst each other. Especially hate in the name of religion, caste, race etc. Those are not even a criteria to judge an individual. The air you take in has no religion,the water you use to quench your thirst has no caste then why is it alive only in our hearts?
Coming back to India, few weeks back the principal of a law college in Kerala abused a student by calling the name of caste. How filthy are we really? When each of us was born we were born as humans. No caste was labelled on our foreheads. It is really ironical that many of the leaders we boast about and carry in our hearts with respects were truly prejudiced when it came to caste issues. By leaders I meant social reformers. So what was the kind of social reforming they were focused on?
Before we learn any new technology or a new fact, learn to be a HUMAN. Live & Let Live.
