Why do People Hate?

The question that has made me wonder today is about why people hate others so much. I have thought about this for very long, but today, I have felt it a lot more. I was wandering through some Facebook Pages and have managed to find too much hate. I see hatred towards people for the religion, nationality and many other factors, along with hating random people; none of them whom these haters have actually known in their lives. The most interesting thing is that these people have actually done nothing bad.

What I have wondered about the most is that people waste absolutely no second in thinking before abusing and hating someone about whom they know nothing about. Sometimes, a number of groups and pages on Facebook are responsible for the same. They come up with memes about random people and declare that a particular person got so many haters, and that it will be nice to hate the person. The result is that people get rid of their ability to think for themselves and begin to hate those people mentioned.

There is no celebration like a monsoon with the green trees and plants.

The abuse and hate comes down like the rain – there is no stopping them.

I don’t understand why some people think that hating makes them better people, and that it is cool to abuse someone because others abuse the same person. Do others decide whom you should love and whom you are to hate? Do these people even know why they abuse and hate this person? Some people come up with the idea that some celebrities have only some lovers and a lot of haters. But where are those sensible people who watch performances, and don’t come up with a conclusion about someone as a person?

I had enough of these fans of some actors fighting each other and spreading hatred against the other. Hating another actor doesn’t make your favourite actor any better; the earlier you realize that, the better. The strange thing is how the fans support sons of their favourite actors too – love and hate are somehow hereditary for them. I would say that there shouldn’t be fans and haters – there should be admirers of movies and performances. There is no actor or actress who has given perfect performances throughout their lives or has managed to do pathetic work throughout their chances.

One has to realize that people can only be themselves, not someone else. Just because someone acted in a movie you disliked or received an award which you felt is undeserving, doesn’t give you free chance for abuse and hate. Some people really need some special classes – love = good; respect = good; abuse = bad; hate = bad. Good people don’t abuse; they don’t hate others whom they don’t know for no reason. If there is something for which it is difficult to agree, people talk to each other like decent men and women, along with respecting the opinions of others.

So much green for the eyes, and for the camera - can't deny its power.

So much green for the eyes, nature is strong; but human hatred is stronger.

Among those who received these abuse and hate posts, the one whom I admire the most is Jude Anthany Joseph, the director of Om Shanti Oshana with his very nice reply to the abusers. He put the status that anybody is free to abuse him on his profile, but it is of no meaning; after finishing the hate comments, they can drink some goat milk and take rest due to the heavy effort; but nothing will change. People still abused him, and my respect for him has only increased. All this hate because he received an award? So called literate people! I will make sure that I will watch all his movies first day, first show.

If the abuse on Ranjini Haridas is brought to the scene, people can come up with millions of reasons, and so I will not go to that area – but I got to make the point clear that hate is not a solution to anything. But what surprises me more is the hatred for Rimi Tomy. There is no reason there, but haters come up with abuse for no reason. Movies fail and not all performances are good or even average, but that gives nobody the licence to abuse and hate. If you hate people so much, just think about yourself, one of your friends, relatives or at least someone you know at that position – will you still hate them? Or all these haters so perfect?

***The images used on this blog post were taken by me on my mobile. ****The hate theory is not one-sided, but is applicable also to the makers of the movie and their friends and relatives who abuse the common man; do respect the people who watch your movies and make them hits.

Attempt for a Clean India

We are all proud Indians, and our national awareness and patriotism reaches new heights when Indian cricket team wins the World Cup or during some other international event. We are extremely happy if an Indian somehow makes to the next round of a big tennis tournament or wins a medal in any of the games. But do we have the same feeling concerning cleanliness? Do we find a clean India as something to be proud of? Shouldnt we consider it the more significant thing and not abusing the players from other countries?

Our new Prime Minister, Narendra Modi also came up with a request for the same, as the new government seems to have their attention on cleanliness. There are advertisements all around the movie theatres and multiplxes concerning the same, asking us to respect and follow the path set by the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi. They have raised their voice through the media and made things clear. It has actually made a lot of people aware of the need to the same. But have most of us changed, or is it limited to a few people or practiced only when camera is rolling?

People still throw their waste on the road, and even relieves themselves in the open, leading to the spread of diseases through mosquitoes and rats. A lot of big cities are facing this problem in a bigger way. One has to wonder why people are so careless about it. There are big garbage collections on the side of the major roads and nobody cares? Isn’t that one of the most depressing things a fast developing nation can have? Are we not better than this? Than why does this happen? The bigger question is about why nobody is saying anything about it?

We have the tendency to avoid a few things which don’t directly affect us, especially if we don’t consider them as a big deal. We might look at the world around us and try to adjust with the lack of cleanliness rather than doing something with it. We are determined to make adjustments to the situations. But things are surely changing. #AbMontuBolega is a campaign for the same reason, and it reminds us that it has been a long time since the need has arisen for the common man to come up and do something about it. One can try raising his or her voice, and see what happens.

We have the right to do so, as much as concerning any other thing. Cleaning and maintaining that cleanliness have been a thing of problem for our nation. We haven’t been known to be among the cleaner countries in the world. There exists a lot of foreigners as well as NRIs who have complained about the same. But no right step has been taken. People become more and more aware of the same, but don’t care to do anything about it, because we adjust too much. We need to keep calm and speak about it like Montu at the website http://www.abmontubolega.com/.

So, next time when we see some garbage, let’s make sure that we make an impact. Let it be certain that we don’t drop garbage on the streets, and also try to do a certain amount of cleaning by ourselves. If we see someone doing that, there is the need to raise our voice and talk to them about it. If there is a real bad situation concerning the waste disposal, it is our duty to inform the authorities and make sure that they take the right action concerning it. Our nation needs collective efforts and one or two people can begin to make a difference.
