The fascinating part about life is its philosophy and the things we are told to believe as we grow. Being a child we learn how we are blessed in the light of religion and science. The concept of God is accentuated with highest levels of glory. The concept of good and bad is made quite simple. It becomes hard to comprehend over the time how bad things can happen to good people and vice-versa. The world painted is a replica of a fairy tale world or an epic which is quite contrary to the real life. Over the time life seems to deceive all the beliefs we once quite proudly embraced. The battling with life’s philosophies either makes one believe in them more or annul them completely.For me the annulment is not an option owing to my habitual submissiveness to the usual dot and dash of philosophy. I might not have my own being the ordinary person that I am. Everyone however through inspirations has their share of light to throw at the concept of mankind and the life we live.
There is in fact one thing over time that I completely fail to comprehend. The pain and suffering humans can cause other humans and still be preferred ‘above other creations’ Is devastating. An animal’s life revolves around the concept of race between the prey and predator. Unfortunately the concepts of brutality are well adapted by the so-called ‘preferred creations’. Survival of the fittest is perhaps the most well renowned
ideology adapted by the mankind for ages. The concept of humanity comes shattering down as we look
around us. The irony caused among men is created by none other than men themselves. Vietnam,burma,bosnia,Serbia,Iraq,Iran,Afganistan, Hiroshima the list of barbaric regimes is endless. The blame is given to politics, religion and philosophy but the real culprit remains mystified under mere words and terminologies. The images of abu ghuraib jail,Guantanamo bay and the victims of chemical war fare shouts out the extremities under which human beings fall today. The concept of brutality is well adapted and deemed fair under banners of religion and politics. Are the victims not humans first? why have we opted for physical abuse while we have been blessed with brains?.
Through out the world millions of dollars and the highest percentage of the country’s budget is proudly invested in generating arms. Woes of bravery for the warriors triggers battles of whose the villain and whose the martyr.
One man’s irony is other’s victory this is the concept of humanity we follow today. The essence of bravery is associate with the number of killings under one’s belt. The struggle of a normal man against his ironies however has no value among the forced virtues we have adapted. Today the biggest fear and threat to mankind comes from among them. No threat no fear is bigger than the terror engraved in our minds about men driven violence. As we continue to justify the wave of violence with preferred reasoning’s , the concept of humanity, religion and politics keeps distorting. Our own set of believes are used against us that too at our own will. No matter what the reasoning are the death of a man anywhere in the world belonging to any religion,cast,creed and race is the death of humanity. The essence of anything that defies with the basic concepts of humanity is unfounded.
Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.
