Recently I heard lots of people speaking much about the society. As a collective representation of human kind, I have concern and interest over it, but certainly am not thinking it as God or awestruck with it for many reasons that I am going to explain here.
Successful people are fewer in number in comparison with failed people. This society hails the successful ones to a greater extent possible while snubbing the failed ones. If ten persons participate in a race, there is room for only one to win. Then why snub those nine?. Aren’t they human? Don’t they have right to lead a peaceful life here? Why can’t this society accept them? Snubbing and ill-treating them shows only animal instinct.
Besides ignoring majority of failed individuals, it wants me to fall in a tasteless routine. It wants me to get a good job or business or a post with lots of power, get married, give birth to children and die in old age with lots of emptiness in my mind.
This society believes that a person is happy only when he follows the above. Do you think the people who have lots of power and money is happy? I don’t think so. I have been privileged to watch people with power and money from close quarters.
In my opinion they can only make others believe that they are happy. But in reality, their life too is a mixture of happiness and sorrows just like every other being in this world. The only difference is, they have luxury. Again that luxury brings in lots of diseases. It’s all well balanced. Besides, they are the ones who have the biggest fear of ''falling from great heights''.
And so, I am wondering if this society sets us up with false objective in life which have a nice chance of deceiving us all with its results. We need to be careful.
