Something to delve into… (Part 1)

Trouble! Problem!

That’s the first thing that makes us jump to our feet and begin the “fault finding” exercise.

I’ve observed that whenever there’s some argument or problem, most of the people look outwards for faults, rarely does anyone look inwards. Why does it become hard for people to believe they might’ve (maybe inadvertently) done something wrong?

Maybe it’s just human tendency.
Maybe its cause lies deeper than we think.

 

 It’s always easier to make a scapegoat of someone else even if your hands are smeared with blood. There are people who’d commit the folly / crime themselves and still put the blame on others and even go to the extent of believing those lies themselves! What are they running away from? Their own self?

 Moreover, the crab mentality never lets anyone get out of the jar, does it? Then why do people indulge in it? They won’t make the effort to slog it out themselves but you can count on them to pull down all others who strive to do so. You’d get that sickening feeling in your stomach when you come to know that they fully realize what they’re up to; still they’d justify their actions nonetheless.

 Is it okay to bleed someone to death and still attribute it to some kind of evil / wicked influence? Of course, bleeding doesn’t always imply physical harm. There are other forms of harm worse than that.

Why do people strangle whatever part is left of their conscience?
Are people running away from…. themselves?
How far or for how long will they continue running?

 Why do I get the feeling that such people are in abundance in the world today? An Institution where you come to learn would be the last place you’d like to encounter such kind of people, still you have to.

 

I guess; that’s life.

  1. You think a lot anuj. tension nahi lena ka is my funda 🙂 You meet these ppl every now and then who dont help you but do a lotta harm to you indirectly. Look at the bright side, you have a clear conscience and thats all matters. Why bother about others?

  2. Anuj, you need to be a philosopher 😛

    But yeah, I think this is due to human nature. It’s the way we are – can’t do much about that. In some cases it’s ignorance or greed or whatever that leads to such actions. Everyone wants to get ahead and some people wouldn’t mind stepping over others to get to where they want to get. I guess ultimately, they’ll reap the consequences of their actions in one way or the other. That is, if you believe in justice 😀

  4. none the truer !

    Sourabh, I can’t help thinking about it. The questions pop-up automatically when I meet certain kind of individuals.

  5. nice thoughts. the only problem is this kinda thinkin of ppl around u is always gonna stay no matter wat.but then its so so human tendency: to put the blame on others. its so much easier that way. i am not sayin that its rite but then it sure is easier.how many times have u accepted ur fault and ppl have acknowleged it.

  6. One question…
