Humanity Is Better

Some people think the world revolves around them. Some think that the race and country they were born into are superior than the rest. Some people are so narrow-minded that they glorify their own blood and demean others'. Some people mock others just cos they grew up different. Some people try to control others and make them into something that they are not. Some people imagine that they know everything about another person when in real they don't have a clue. Some people take another's Right into their hands. Some people diss others just cos they don't know what respect and indivduality are. Some people are evidently racist without even realising that themselves. Some people claim they know what Love and Peace are when they can't even see past the differences in their own friends. Some people think that they are the best thing that ever happened to this world that that thought itself proves they are not. Love of your country and your race should lead to accepting everyone else in this world as equal. Else you are not respecting your own soil. Don't let too much Patriotism blind you from being human.

Have a good weekend guys!

hey, i'll comment first. now, will read the posr ;)

adi said...

hmmm
a good weekend begins begins with a smile :) wish u many more, these coming days.

as for the topic, i commented this on a friends blog too, if u let urself be subjugated by others, if u urself feel u r inferior to them...then u r also a part in this problem. every coin has two sides, remember?

Kalpana said...

"Love of your country and your race should lead to accepting everyone else in this world as equal."

Very much true. I agree with you 100%.

Jewel Rays said...

Some people try to control others and make them into something that they are not.

Thats something i can't stand..
It sucks basically.

And its scary when u don't knw that your own laundry is dirty but yet still point at other's faults. that would be one of the scariest thing for me. to not know my negative and yet point out other's. Gosh..! jitters really..

Have a good weekend too Keshi!!

:D cheers!

Well Said, Keshi. Humanity should be above all. Humanity is that single virtue which can take us beyond barriers of caste, colour, creed, religion, language or nationality.

Wish you a happy weekend!

With Best Regards,
Srijith.

i dunno about this pride for (name of country) it makes me wants to stay away from this ppl. a lot of times i feel it's hard to approach those nationalistic ppl.

i think it's important to have a strong cultural identity and also share it with other ppl. then ppl can understand each other.

we don't live in one world but many worlds.

ur so right... people dont learn from history... see what too much patriotism did to hitler n germany?

Arz000n said...

Love of your country and your race should lead to accepting everyone else in this world as equal.
If only...u were in politics and have used this has a tag line while running for presidentship...believe me, there was no defeat for you :))

I hope no politician blogger is reading this post right now else he is going to steal it for sure ;)

Else you are not respecting your own soil. Don't let too much Patriotism blind you from being human.

This is so true...

You have a nice weekend too K000kie masta....and dont go on a drive to beach and think about new-post-for-blog okie ;)

hehhe..just kidding..

Enjoy!!

ya keshi
that is the bitter truth
There are many not even handful who think that the world revolves around them
Though that is not the case
Well people who are renknowned, Bush, Gates they do think like that
even some of our mates also think the same way
yet arent they living in mere darkness, running away from the truth?
if the world was to revolve around them, their mistakes wouldve had dommed the world
But that never happens no

jac said...

Truly said, keshi !!

I wonder if they know what they are talking about.
Sad to realize that humanity is about to extinct.

Jeevan said...

Very nice post dear. Really we dont know all, we are learning all. Happy Weekend Keshi:) enjoy!

So suprising to see your post here. Coz I think I wrote something similar too.

first one has to be an individual. for that one has to respect and acknowledge whats around that individual.

Discriminating others and mocking is not a sign of Patriotism. Rather it is a sign of how weak and stupid that individual s!!

have a nice weekend & take care!!

Aditi said...

I dont think it is patriotism when you are saying that you are better then the other person.. it exists.. everywhere ..sometimes as racism and sometimes as sexual discrimination and sometimes based on religion..
I think we humans are pathetic enough that even if we are living in the same village, same color, same religion.. same caste and same creed we will still find a way to discriminate.. maybe based on what side of the street u live on?
its pathetic.. but its there

alex said...

Have a great weekend dude! :)

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

Hey KAP...

Some people show their vanity openly and some are even worse, they show the more deceiving form of vanity (pretension of humility)...

about respecting soil, land and traditions, i think first we should learn to respect the "human" in us...

U are absolutely right, humanity is better... i would say, best!!!

Parag said...

Well said.. We all tend to like our own types.. Our own castes, religions, languages, colour, country-folk etc
So, without actually knowing it we are all racist in our own way..
Why else do we look for a bride / groom for our children within our own community ?
Its something that will take time to go away.. as we evolve
Whats is most important is that we talk about non-cruelty towards animals and we hurt fellow humans..

Anonymous said...

hi keshi girl :) hope you have a gr8 weekend :):)

keshi well written......most ppl lose out on lot when they consider themselves superior...sad but true.

southpaw said...

Don't associate discrimination with patriotism, fanatism wud be the closest term for such a thing.
Anyway like i repeatedly said, think abt ur plans for the weekend and not these things....:)
Hv a great weekend!!!

let'sfuck said...

Only love can conquer hate. In hermetism they teach you that one shouldn't focus or concentrate on seeing or thinking the negative but rather on the opposite, thinking and seeing the positive. This comes from the concept which holds that everything starts in our thougths and minds, so what we think we materialize or create. Something like I am not against hate, I am pro love.


ps. Saby comeback, you are too funny (sorry to be intrusive Keshi, but he cracks me up).

LERA said...

It's so very true...Racism, is indeed a disgrace to humanity, a destructive form of a disease...which has to be cured in totallity to eliminate without leaving behind any traces. It's a sad thing to notice that, humans in general do have a tendency to be biased and one-sided ,be it with their geographical orientation or skin colour orientation.

I would say, these prejudices have to be overcome within every each and every family leading to a prejudice free humanity :)Keshi,Happy weekend with lot's of fun!

Well said keshi. When I moved from NYC to Canada many people wondered in US why shud I migrate. When I landed up here many asked how do you like here. Well all I can say is respect the place and country which feeds you. No matter where you live, follow the traditions and know more that country and place. We all pay taxes and we have rights as any other person born ther.

If we keep be'n lead by religious zealots and crash consumerist corporations our future will be bleak .

The only chance we have is the open and free Internet . Open and honest communication with people of all races , religions , creeds , will be able to challenge the narrow minded or the brainwashed individuals . It could open up their mind that their idols could be wrong . It could also give them the guts to ask the right questions . I know of a "new" software that could be download on computers in areas like North Korea or Iran ...That would open the individuals CPU to the WWW. with out format change , without fear of monitoring . This is something that could change the way the world thinks .

Some think that the race and country they were born into are superior than the rest
this is true to the power million times...such people not only think they tend to be very much spoken hurting others...difference lies in their so called superiror mind

u know i shud start thinking like such may be by the time i can boost up my confindent level which i possess very least

Hi Keshi

LOL Did you write this post due haste?

I think you got yourself caught in your own crossfire. LOL

I agree 100% with you. However, the last part of the post seems to leave your readers in a loop.

Don't get angry with me--I am not saying you write poorly. I can kill the good ol' English language as bad, if not badder, than the next gal/guy. LOL

Here is an example of how your first sentence may have been written:

"Self-glorifying, narrow-minded people think their culture is superior."

LOL This is just an example.

I know what you are saying with this sentence, but others may not.

"Love of your country and your race should lead to accepting everyone else in this world as equal."

LOL--Sorry if I just tore your post apart.

You can rip my next post. It would not be a hard job. LOL

Blessed said...

wow Keshi...that was pretty powerful. makes me wonder who you are referring? also, when i was reading i kept thinking of the country in which i live-the great ole USA. Sometimes i just wonder how 'we' come across to others. Do we seem like bullies or do we really seem as tho we are brave and free and what to help others?

also, i think there are alot of people who don't realize how they come across to others in their patriotism. sometimes i do think it is tho 'we' are stuffing in down peoples throats and that's pretty ugly and not right.

and so i will go, but i will leave with this:
"love thy neighbor".
period.

yrautca said...

Its true that there are a lot of racists among us, some even without realizing it just like Kramer from Seinfeld. I think many of us think that we arent racists but in reality we are. That doesnt mean that we hate people of other races. It means that if we were put in a split second decision situation, we'd exhibit racial preference.

I think that we have to be people first.
The first step in getting rid of racist attitudes is recognizing them. I think as long as people are willing to work on it, things will turn out ok. It's when people feel justified in these attitudes that problems mushroom.

Jim/Saby/Julia this post is for u too. A person who always think Indians r the greatest on Earth.

Besides I didnt ask u to F off. It's U who asked me to F off. Cos u laugh at who I am and think Im a pretence. As if that doesnt hurt after knowing u for so long! And then who went and said Adios to who? It's U who said Adios to me. Cos ur ego cant take anything more than u, u and u.

It's one world Saby..not just India and Indian women who r the best on Earth. Mate/Yaar they are all words used on a FRIEND. So DONT DISCRMINATE BASED ON CULTURE, RACE and COUNTRY.

TY so much for this! Alot of ppl dun u'stand that. And some even laugh at me for living in Aus and adopting Aus as my home. Alot of Indians and Sri Lankans think Im fake. Even in this very blog, some ppl laugh at me and think I should go back to SL. What a joke. ppl dun realise that where we live, love and work is our home. And that doesnt mean we forget our origins but we dun have to be a slave to it. ty for this Priya, u said it the best!


**No matter where you live, follow the traditions and know more that country and place. We all pay taxes and we have rights as any other person born ther.

Purnima I havent seen CRASH yet...was it good?

**i have.. and its sad that people forget that we are all humans first and THEN fall into whatever categories of race, creed and color , later!

yep..it's very sad. Even friends do that to friends. They forget that we r all human and then start addressing them by caste, creed, race..and that makes me wanna throw up!

Nitika huggggggggz!

**such people not only think they tend to be very much spoken hurting others..

yeah...why I wrote this post is cos a friend hurt me big time by saying I should be more INDIAN and not AUSSIE. How rude and narrow-minded is that. And that's truly a very racist thing to say. Cos what I SHOULD BE is not what matters. WHAT I AM is what really matters.

**we Indian are One of the Most racist People . we always boast of being the culturally superior and hide our inadequacy in trying to be very liberal

TY for admitting this mate! Not many will say it even if they know it deep inside. I say the same. Alot of us r very racist and laugh at other cultures. I have lived both in SL and in AUS, so I really can tell the difference. Alot of the ppl here r very open-minded and not so racist as in SL. Im not saying one is better than the other, but I must say that ppl here dun judge others so easily. They give u chances to be tested. Whereas in SL ppl just have this bad impression abt ppl from other countries even w.o. knowing them! How sad.

Ur a Brahmin? Great. So when u hear a cuss word, d u take 3 baths? :)

Ash indeed!


-----------------------------------

awww Fleiger u r indeed one of the best things that ever happened :)


**What happened? What triggered this?

well if u read the comment section of my last post and many others b4, some friends tell me that I 'should' be Indian and not Aussie etc. That I 'should' not forget my Indian roots, that I 'should' be adopting the word 'yaar' and not 'mate' etc etc. To tell u the truth can anyone judge another 100% when they dun have a clue abt that person's life experiences and what they have been exposed to living overseas? I think not. So why ask ppl to be this n that and why glorify their own race/country? that thought pattern I think is the root cause of all wars.

**Its true that there are a lot of racists among us, some even without realizing it just like Kramer from Seinfeld

I used to LOVE Kramer for who he was in Seinfeld. But after that racist slur, I have no respect for this guy. He lost it for good.


**It means that if we were put in a split second decision situation, we'd exhibit racial preference.

I agree. It's human nature for sure.

Yash yeah laughter will get to em LOL!

Niki hey huggggggz!

**patriotism seems to be the source of evil.

At first it seems such a great thing to be patriotic. But when ppl confuse that with fanatism, that's when things become evil.

-----------------------------------

Meister heyy!

**I think that we have to be people first.

Spot on babez! Well-said.

**cos i believe one need not prove others they have to prove themselves

I agree. But I think when friends have been thinking abt u in a totally different way for such a long time, it does affect u atleast in some small way. And I cant just keep quiet w.o. explaining to them that Im me and not what they want me to be. Im trying to prove anything. All Im doing is explaining. If that doesnt work then thats ok too :)

Hi Keshi

"Don't let too much Patriotism blind you from being human."

I agree with everything. With this sentence and the previous one, you are creating a conflict.

LOL

I always thought abt that too. What if we didnt have borders between countries...what if we could travel freely to any place we want...what if we were just world citizens and does not belong to just one country..

Absolutely right on!!! actually I was having this discussion today and the person keeps bringing race though its a funny comment but sometimes it becomes too much and beyond handling...and I felt that a person like me who has been brought up on humanitarian grounds and not caste system...I dont think these kinds of jokes will be often making any sense or even fun!
I appreciate your thought dear....
so true and perfect!
