AN URGE TO HELP!
Going by the noble thoughts moving around in the digital world, social media , FORWARDS, one gets a feeling, that all of us are innately endowed with an urge to help. If unknown to Indian reality & going by pronouncements & forwards, anybody would be convinced that we are an eternally helping society. Road accidents would be, the most sordid example to manifest how devoid are we, of this basic human trait.
If you try recollecting as to how many persons outside your very close family & friends have ever asked you for help, * you are likely to have a fair idea, as what *people feel of you on the help matrix. Do you even exist for other humans? As per your mindset, DNA or attitude or any combination of these, if somebody asks for help, genuine & serious, what is your reaction? Do you treat it as your first priority? Where does not anybody’s medical need, fall in your scheme of things? Do you have sometime for others needs, totally unconnected to your emotions, benefit & growth? What is your reaction when it’s a person who can benefit you?
It’s not the one has never landed in an issue, when it happens, what is your first reaction? Most human to look help. You make dozens of calls to a person you barely know, but can be of use, as if you always been connected. What is your reaction when you don’t get any? Fortunately, there are people, if you are not extremely unlucky, who will come to your rescue. Gratitude, which you at least felt initially, vanishes into thin air as normalcy comes back. The self promise of your behavioral change, when in crisis, does not happen. You get back to your old habits. True Indian DNA!
How much of time do you have for others? Are you even ready to listen to somebody’s complicated problems? Evading is termed as practical or smart option or both. But something hits you, you want everyone to come to standstill & offer such an outstanding help, world’s never seen. It’s an unfair demand. If we are human, it need not be taught, it’s our DNA. We have deliberately lost it.
IN A SELF-CENTERED WORLD, EVEN AN URGE TO HELP, NEEDS TO BE CREATED.
