HUMANTIY….Our Religion???


In a world where there are conflicts over caste, race, gender, politics, religion and several other issues, I wonder if there is something called “Humanity” alive in human beings today.

I was waiting for a bus at secunderabad station and passed by an old man wearing rugged and torn clothes, holding a stick, leaning against a “PAN”-spat wall. There was a small tumbler beside him where i could see few coins in it. He wasn’t begging shouting “ammmaaaa ayyyyaaaaa baabbuuuuu” or something. All he was doing is just sitting and looking at people who are busy running to get into those crowded buses. There was all chaos and i was waiitng to see if atleast one person from the crowd bothered to look at him or even smile at him. But none turned up….that was when i just reliased about how people run after money or materialistic pleasures in this so called “Technologically adavanced” world …that they don’t care even if their negihbour dies on the road.
They talk about U.S’s technology, India developing , On Indian Politics and lecture people or give lengthy speeches on such things, but they dont go beyond that. They limit themselves to speeches n lectures and their concern remains only till the end of their speech……after that “tata- bye bye”!! Duhh!!!
Ok…..Now consider this – If we see a dog mourning in pain on road, How many of us would rush to the spot to save the dog? by not thinking….“ohhh c’mon.. It’s just a dog”!! Why is it that we forget that even dog has something called “LIFE”!!! This single example is enough to show how “HUMANE” you are.
Similarly, if anyone among the crowd bothered to go talk to the old man or smiled at him, that would have made his meals for the day.
We all talk n shout about “MY Religion” has taught me this , my religion has taught me that…..But “YOUR” religion doesn’t teach you how to pray to only one god or discriminate people by the way they look, talk, act or anything…But every religion teaches about how to live with one another happily and peacefully in life….And That is called “HUMANITY”!!

No wonder someone once said….“Humans are the worst creatures living on the earth”. Social animals are turning into wild animals due to Ego, status, impatience,violence and what not…..
Now you question yourself about….“HOW HUMANE ARE YOU??”
( Don’t u think there shud b a facebook quiz on this… lolzz :P:P)

  1. Teju… this is probably one of your best posts ever. My sister in my room has put a small post id that read “humanity.. My religion”. When i read the title i couldnt help but smile.
    noticing the man was you touching your humane side. Writing about it made it you expressing a dying religion.
    Completely love reading your posts.
    P.S your writing talent has also become sexier.
    Love the post… :*
    keep blogging!!

  2. Hey,
    loved the topic, the flow, the train of thought..have to agree with you, the Indian ethos somehow has moved away from the, as u called it,”humane” plane o a more materialistic aspect, somehow in proportion to the so-called development we have undergone. It's time we woke up and realised we come from a culture that demands us to be something much much more..
    Keep it flowing pilla…
    Luv always!

  4. Tejaswini, Yes I completely agree with you that the myopic vision of an expanding tribe lose their human elements behind the false ego etc. They forget that in this world every living thing is the manifestation of the absolute power i.e. God. From this perspective, we should not forget to serve every living being. We are no body to show ” kindness” to others as God himself is there inside it. We should offer “services” & ” love” to all.
    I may sound little off-track to your generation but trust me , having travelled much longer distance in life than any of you, I realise that there is nothing better than to love and being loved in life.
