MORALITY

MORALITY

Can you be good without God ?

What would you do if you find a wallet on the road ? Will you return it to the person by searching his documents from the wallet or would you keep it for yourself ? Our answer speaks of our morality ; of what we think is the right thing to do .

So morality are the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.

Moral principles that govern how we treat ourselves like how we wear, how we worship etc is called personal morality whereas the moral principles that governs how we treat each other is called social morality. How we understand morality is determined by the factors like the environment in which we develop , philosophies and perspective we are exposed to, and our experience with happiness and unhappiness and what we see as the cause for both .

To impose our personal morality on others it requires us to initiate some force against them which violates social morality. Some may consider this as a good trade but we should remember that what we can do to others, others can also do to us.

It is your choice whether you want the law to enforce personal morality or social morality but it can not do both. This even leads to the destruction of morality. For example if we choose politicians to enforce personal morality then we will need to violate social morality by treading on others. But if we restrict law and insist on the enforcement of social morality, then we will retain the right to use persuasion to promote your personal values.

There are several things that are illegal but are thought to be moral for the majority :-

1) consuming alcohol under age

2) driving over the speed limit

3) cheating on a tax return

4) splitting the cable signal to send it to more than one television.

There are also things are immoral but not illegal :-

  • Cheating your partner
  • Using abortion as a birth control measure etc.

 

I would like to conclude with a line said by Albert Einstein – ‘Morality is of the highest importance – But for us ,not for god.’ And in recent future it is expected that the destruction of morality is avoided.

     Music of today

MUSIC OF TODAY ,sounds so mindblowing with all those feet-shaking bass drops and beats. In this era of Trap music and Spinning Records , we all are forgetting about what songs actually are.

Few years ago, there was this time when people used to like and listen to Pop music,Rap,Reggee,Alternative-Rock,Rock,R&B,Electro-Punk . Back then,music and songs were actually good with amazing music and Meaningful  lyrics.  Lets talk about them famous artists and Bands like Phil Collins ,Avril Lavigne,Kellyb Clarkson,Eminem,Nelly,Dr.Dre,Lil Wayne,Bob Marley,All Time Low,In This Moment,The Pretty Reckless,Led Zeppelin,The Doors,Nine Inch Nail, Rihanna, Beyonce,  Chris Brown etc……

They All had one thing in common which artists & music of today don’t actually have it and that is REAL TALENT and Real Music.They have their own music and original deep meaningful lyrics.

Today Artists writes songs in which music is repetitive, and the lyrics involves the same typical situations, like “going to a club tonight”, “let’s get this party started”, or the typical thought that every song has to be about love, falling in love, being in love, or something having to do with love.

I mean c’mon guys get over it . bands like GREENDAY & AVENGED SEVENFOLD  used to write songs about general issues or about peace or Evil Spirits ,demons and Occults etc and the music was freaking awesome with sounds that will make your ear numb and it feels great.

In the end all  im going to say is Don’t listen to that ear hurting beats. There are lots of underground bands of today – and even some mainstream artists that still have the actual depth and talent in their music.

GENDER EQUALITY

GENDER EQUALITY

Gender equality is the view that both men and women should receive equal treatment and not be discriminated against based on their gender. Their are separate issues when we say rights,in terms of men’s rights and women’s rights.Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making. Gender equality is measured by looking at the representation of men and of women in a range of roles.  A number of international comparative gender equality indices have been prepared but here we are taking about India and what is the condition around. There are places where women are brutally beaten and are not cared of, but  we often listen about injustice to men, here of course we are not talking about the condition of houses where a wife is ruling a husband but a man going to prison without any faults.

Some argue that some gender equality measures, place men at a disadvantage. However, when India’s population is examined as a whole, women are at a disadvantage in several important ways. We should be ashamed that India is ranked 132 for Gender Inequality Index out of 148 countries by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). According to a you tube video where some people asked public about gender equality and its implementation in India, most of the people were straight to the fact that women will not be able to reach the heights of men, here height meant physical strength. Basically interviewing in village areas matters because most of the country is covered with farms and plantings and is the main source of income for rural families. Women are not allowed to take over men in a family. When a man dies in India, and wife is left with her female kids, it is referred that now their would be no one to make their family going. This is the thinking of most of the people around us. Rural women are the most affected by this issue as they do not have rights and are married before they are capable of. Women who try to take actions are also not supported because their female ancestors have been following this since long. Female foeticide is the most buzzing topic in India whereas in foreign countries people even don’t know of the topic. Female foeticide refers to sex-selective abortion, where girls are not allowed to take birth. Then it comes to health and care, here India’s condition is bad for both males and females but here too girls lack in immunisation rates i.e.. 41.7 for girls and 45.3 for boys. Then next comes education where In rural India girls continue to be less educated than the boys India is on target to meet its Millennium Development Goal of gender parity in education by 2015. UNICEF’s measure of attendance rate and Gender Equality in Education Index (GEEI) capture the quality of education.Despite some gains, India needs to triple its rate of improvement to reach GEEI score of 95% by 2015 under the Millennium Development Goals.

Now i would want to brief about some men’s rights where men gets trapped between morality and responsibility. The first example I would want to make is undue advantage of urban city girls in several government and private schools and colleges, where they offer admission to girls if they are girls and no further criteria. Taking another example where girls take undue advantage is metros where they order for seats being a teenager from an old man intact having a separate coach for them and reserved seats in every coach.

Whatever be the condition is current times, but in recent future it is expected from our Indian government that some steps would surely be taken against these barbaric acts and country would be improved.

MOM ! I HAVE REALIZED IT

MOM ! I HAVE REALIZED IT

Have you ever seen a person or a moment that brought up any change in you or in your life? It might be a small change. Fortunately I had experience it, and yes it brought a change in me.

It was a normal day; I was going back to my house I was in the auto and from the start I noticed a person, he was not a poor man but he was from a lower middle class family, he was having a bottle of juice and a veg roll. I noticed him for some time and the thing i noticed and realized was an eye opener to me.

The auto was fully packed and there was hardly any space to sit but that person dint cared about anything he was busy eating his roll, from his expressions and from the way he was eating I get to know that he was very hungry, it seems like he was hungry since morning. People were fighting for their seats but that person was fighting with his hunger. It might be a first meal of his day and his meal meant a lot to him at that time, feeling of satisfaction could be seen from his face easily. I got to know about common people’s hunger.

A man hungry since morning just to save money, that’s ironic man earns for his stomach but his stomach is not always filled. On the other hand there are people like us who spend money on useless things without giving it a second thought. The reason might be anything showing off, buying stuffs that we really don’t need, eating junk food whenever we want in spite knowing the fact that we are not hungry or anything. We are the future of this nation if we will be casual regarding these things, you can simply imagine the future.

While noticing him I recalled my mom saying ‘you get things easily that’s why you don’t value them’ but today I want to say, Mom! I have realized what you wanted me to understand which was to value each and every thing you have.

He was a stranger to me but he taught me the major lesson of life and aspired me know the reality. No teacher could teach us things like this but our own experiences. Ill implement his lesson with the thought which says ‘ NO ONE CAN GO BACK AND MAKE A NEW START BUT ANYONE CAN START FROM NOW AND CAN MAKE A BRAND NEW ENDING.’

HUMAN TRAFFICKING – A SHAME TO HUMANITY

HUMAN TRAFFICKING – A SHAME TO HUMANITY

Human trafficking is the third largest organized crime across the globe after drugs and arms trade. Human trafficking is “the trade in humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, forced labor, or for the extraction of organs and tissues, including surrogacy and ova removal. Trafficking is a lucrative industry, representing an estimated $32 billion per year in international trade, compared to the estimated $650 billion for all illegal international trade.” India is considered as the hub of this crime in Asia.

As per the statistics of the government in every eight minutes a child goes missing in our country. In 2011 about 35,000 children were reported missing and more than 11,000 out of these were from West Bengal.Further,it is assumed that only 30% of the total cases are reported,so the actual number is pretty high. The New York Times has reported on the widespread problem of human trafficking in India especially in the state of Jharkhand. Also in the report it is stated that young girls are trafficked from neighboring Nepal to India. In another article published in The Times of India – Karnataka is the third state in India for human trafficking. Other South Indian states are also the most sought after destinations for human trafficking. Every year more than 300 such cases are reported in each of the four south Indian states. Whereas West Bengal and Bihar, on an average have 100 such cases every year. As per the data, morethan half of the human trafficking cases are from these states. According to the latest reports on human trafficking by the United Nations on Drugs and Crime reveals that Tamil Nadu has 528 cases of human trafficking in 2012. The number is really high and more than any other state except West Bengal (549). As per the data from Ministry,1379 cases of human trafficking were reported from Karnataka in the period of four years, in Tamil Nadu the number is 2,244 whereas Andhra Pradesh has 2,157 cases of human trafficking. Recently 300 bonded laborers in Bangalore have been rescued. According to an article in Firstpost, Delhi is the hub of human trafficking trade in India and half of the world’s slaves lives in India. Delhi is the hotspot for illegal trade of young girls for domestic labor, forced marriage and prostitution. Delhi is also the transit point for human trafficking.

THOSE WERE THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE

It is rightly said ,” sometimes you will never know the true value of a MOMENT until it becomes a MEMORY!”

School! By listening to this word I without thinking much imagines or recalls my school building , classes, punishments, bunks, exams etc . Though my school life has ended AND WHEN IT ENDED I HAD A MIXED FEELING . I was sad obviously but a bit happy because I was going to start a new phase of my life that is ‘my college life’. I have entered a new world in which I have come across tons of different people. If I talked about both my life together there are many things to compare, first and the most important thing is that college has ‘NO UNIFORMS’ we can wear whatever we want to. In school if anyone noticed it we eagerly wanted clock to strike 1:30 and we wanted to rush to our houses but in college we don’t even realize when the day has ended. In school we are bounded or restricted to a small world with guides who are there at each and every step we take, in college as we all know and have experienced that college is a huge world and we have to do things on our own. College has its own entertainment, no strictness as compare to school. It feels like we can do anything but not everything . In school its was our learning process but in college it is our training process , we have to think maturely about our career. College life is full of adventure but on the other hand a very crucial time for us. School friends were and are very unique and the bond between them is unexplainable, in college it seems lie everyone is our friend which is a bitter truth. Finding friends is easy but finding true friends is difficult. The best about college friends is they no longer stay friends they become family. I am blessed that I have found a family in my friends, although it’s a small family but better than the fake once. whenever I look back and recall all the memories of my school I always find my eyes glittering with tears of happiness . with all the restriction and strictness I feel my school life is the best, but I hope my college life will also end with memories which I can never forget. ‘Though each and every day of my life is memorable for me but still there are some unforgettable memories which would always be at the back of my head that is “my school days”.

RAPE

RAPE

What happens when we hear this word. We tend to show an awkward expression and try to ignore it. We are aware of bits and pieces associated with this word. Lets take a look at the cruel reality of the society.

In India, rape is the most common crime against women. According to Criminal Law Act 2013; rape is defined as the “sexual harassment or doing sex with lady without her permission or forcefully imposing over her.” Official sources shows that rape cases in India have doubled in 2008 since 1990.

In most of the cases its observed the culprit is known to the victim i.e. either friends ,neighbours or relatives. The victims are unable to file a complaint against this act not only due to family and societal pressures but also due to the evil thinking of the society, that the girl is to be blamed for this act.

Even if out of all the hurdles girl lodges a complaint she has to re-live the whole incident in full detail that moment is not only depressing but also torturous to her.

Another problem is with the girl’s dressing. When she wears short dress it could be that she feels comfortable or want to try new fashion. But society thinks they wear such dresses to attract and excite men and that leads to rape but for society that’s not rape rather sex with mutual concept as she has herself invited men with such dressing.

There are many questions in my mind that I would like to ask the world:

  • Is it really the mistake of the girl (victim)?
  • Why she has to face all the humiliation throughout her life?
  • Why she is considered to be untouchable, sinful or impure?

 

This is the scenario in the country like India where the girl who is being raped is considered as impure and porn stars are welcomed in the country as celebrities.

People (the culprits ) who are involved in these cases are easily set free due to lack of evidence, their wealthy positions or political support. They are charged in the least cases but the one who has no fault is punished every day by the society for no reason.

“ The physical scars and pain of a rapist fades away with time but mental scars never does. And it is the society or rather it is ‘WE’ who makes it worse for them to survive in this world.

SO PEOPLE IT’S YOUR CHOICE NOW, WHICH SIDE YOU WANT TO CHOOSE…??? ”
