Prejudice Barriers, ആരാ വിധിച്ചത്?

“It is like that”

“Do it as such”

Many a times we hear these kinda words. And we let ourselves to be ruled by those prejudiced notions.

We are not born to be stereotyped, but somehow got tuned in that way.

And very rarely a counter question is asked “why is it like that?”

Okay, leave it if you are trying to make prejudice wall sturdier. Be a stereotyped and use the ink of prejudiced notions to build your world, after all it’s a great time saver, no…;) you don’t have to over think.. just need to respond based on the preconceived notions. And live peacefully the rest of your life in that stereotyped world. (Ah!)

      thanks Kamal..we are a kind of tuned to be like that, and easily forget that we should have asked ‘why not like that”

        Yes absolutely true Akhila that is the reason we then label the whole community that they are like that when all are not like that at all.

    Yes, same all over. Here they say, “That’s the way it is.” and “That’s the way it’s done” and after that wonderful wisdom you’re supposed to accept and keep your mouth shut. I’m 70 years “young” now and because my mind is not tuned to the normal I’m still being challenged and mocked for the things I say, and how I see the world. To my society, I’m a kind of “fool on the hill” I guess. But what’s so great about repeating the same mistakes, as a society, generation after generation? Why can’t we try something really new and revolutionary? Two things I keep saying should be done that would change the world overnight: One, let’s just decide to act strictly compassionately. Two, let’s all go naked! Imagine that… 🙂

    Unequal societies try to suggest that asking questions is impolite, unpatriotic and ungrateful.

    […] She 4: You should not leave it, only because of these words. It could be silly or not, thoughtful or not, but it’s your own interest. It should not be altered merely on hearing some negative words. Yes, you can think more on those negative vibes, but finally you must have an unbiased mind. You must have that willpower to decide your path against the so called society presumptions. […]
