Who am I? – Beating Words

Who am I ?
How do I perceive myself?
Young, beautiful, bold, confident, and pretty.
That’s what I think I am.
What does society think of my perceived beauty?
It said hold on young lady you have spectacles, you have curly hair and YOU ARE FAT oh gosh. YOU ARE UGLY. You don’t deserve to be tagged to be’’ beautiful.’’
When young minds go through these societal stereotypes of fair and lovely, skinny and beautiful, and when bollywood shows us the perfect zero figure models walking down the ramp of a fashion show. The young minds think this is what beautiful looks like.
We see advertisement on the TV everyday of Fair and lovely, telecommunications selling sona belts and the fact that the role of women is confined to just making sure that the plates are clean enough to be used as mirrors. The irony is this is what our kids are learning too.
There is an incident I would like to share. As a teacher I went in a class and students happened to be dressed in sarees as it was a traditional day or something. I went in the class and complimented everyone for looking gorgeous and the fact that they all looked lovely. The class ended and a girl walked up to me, a 17 year old to be precise. She said’’ ma’am you really think I am beautiful ? because my parents feel I am too dark and maybe I would not get a good husband’’
I was amazed by the fact on how can parents push or blame their children for the skin type they have? I told her eventually that you should marry someone who likes you for who you are and respects you.
I believed that maybe this problem pertained to smaller cities but who was I fooling open a newspaper and go to a column of matrimonial section it will give you a certain image of a stereotypical ‘’wife’’
‘’ Needed a 24 year old fair thin and a graduate girl for our 27 year old doctor son earning 5 lakhs every month’’
I had no knowledge about how deep these stereotypes were until I started interacting with the kids in my school. I was shocked to know that half of my students believed in having a stringent rajput customs. They were shocked to know that I did not to how to cook or I was unaware about many customs and traditions and that I was allowed to openly voice out my disregard for the few.
Considering my opinions of customs and traditions I respect and follow those customs which give me respect in return well those which disregard or objectify or control me I do not follow them. Which makes me look ’’unsanskari’’ kind. The kind every guy should probably stay away from and I have heard many elders of mine telling me ‘’ behave like a girl’’ ‘’ stop wearing jeans’’ ‘’ do not apply lipstick’’ ‘’ grow your hair’’ ‘’ sit like a girl’’ etc.
Well to be honest women have been fighting all their lives. For their rights, for education , or their freedom. But the real question is. Are we there yet? How further we need to fight to ensure equality, respect and love. How far can I walk alone on street ? How many vehicles need to be pasted with ‘’ Jai Mataji’’ to deserve respect and avoid eve teasing. Till when do Ihave to mute my opinions when I see aunties character assassinating girls who are confident and well spoken.
TILL WHEN? Is the real question to be thought on.

Artificial Humanity

First when I want to write about Humanity, The first question arises in my mind is what is humanity in present time? Is people really knowing the meaning of humanity? either I read a news paper or watch news channels, everywhere there is news of wise,rich , respectable people, like they could donate lots of money to the Poors and provide them food, clothes, and other necessaries. And we just feel oh how great they all are ,how kind they are,they could do so much for the sake of humanity.

But the question arise in my mind is, if they really want to do all these humanity then why not in private! They can do all these goods and make a videos, click photos and post it all in the social medias for publicity to show the world that how much kind they all are.this all I just found is publicity stunt under the label of goodness and humanity.they can try to get attention from more and more people. They can satisfied their ego and Pride behind the title of humanity and kindness.

Then the other question derives is , then what called humanity? We can able to interpreted humanity is Elixir of soul. For example, there where dudgeon on the road and a person mounded a lot, so many people were there who could clicking pictures, making videos and gossiping about the accident. But in between them all. There is only one human who feels the pain of that suffered person and called the ambulance ,take him to the hospital, without any acquaintanceship , without any kind of swathes. That’s what we can consider humanity is in real sense.

One soul see that the other soul is in pitiable condition and is in trouble,and he can feels as much as pain of that pitiable soul and befall extreme avid to help them without thinking about own goods and benifits.without any kind of flamenship, he helps him. That’s what we can consider humanity. Humanity is not a thing of affection or falsification . It’s reflected itself in your character when it’s time to show.

Be Human

Humanity is the biggest religion to follow. If you cannot find faith in humanity , be the faith in humanity. These days people have lost faith in humanity because of evil peoples. Nowadays people think too much and feel too little , people have lost humanity.

If a crime or evil thing happens with someone , peoples instead raising voice , they raise mobile phones, they shoot such evil things and share on social media instead of stopping such harrasment or torture that are happening around them. Lack of humanity turns a human being into an animal pretending to be a human. People need to understand no religion is greater than humanity. Nowadays the situation has become like ” WE CAN SEE HUMANS BUT NOT HUMANITY”. Being human is given but Keeping our Humanity is our choice. So Be Kind ! Be Human!
