We Walk Straight, but do not Talk Straight !

WE WALK STRAIGHT BUT DO NOT TALK STRAIGHT !

In pre-historic times, we used to crouch and walk on all fours. After millions of years of evolutionary learning, today human beings walk straight, but still do not talk straight. In many of our conversations we reply with taunt and sarcasm to deride and to ridicule. Many a times we speak with conceit and contempt to insult and to humiliate. And at times we resort to sneer or silence to shut or to silence. We derive sadistic pleasure in putting some one down. There is violence in wounding words as well as in sulking silence. Why can’t we talk straight, reply straight? Why this urge, this competition to belittle? More often than not we are only too eager to assume the worse and doubt the meaning or intent of someone without understanding the context or the situation. In such cases we mostly err. Then why not try and err on the positive side? Two wrongs do not make a right !

WORDS GIVE LIFE ! WORDS KILL !

 

Evolving or Devolving ?

A cousin posted something beautiful on kindness yesterday ! This triggered a thought……when we think of kindness, do we not sub-consciously assume kindness only for those who are not close to us ? How kind are we to our near n dear ones…to those who matter most in our lives….our immediate family members…….mother, father, husband, wife (am excluding sons n daughters for we are partial to them and, therefore, our kindness to them is agiven) ! At times are we not violent to them in words and harsh in thoughts ? And at times, do we not treat them shabbily…… by words spoken n unspoken, by behaviour n gestures, by certain things we do or do not do ? Why do we lose our senses n sensitivity, why do we take them for granted…… ?

The more we evolve, the more we devolve……?
