As Dangerous As Ragging !!!

            551st BLOG POST -->>


       "That girl you called a slut in class today. She's a virgin. The pregnant girl walking down the street . She got raped . The boy you called lame. He has to work every night to support his family. That girl you pushed down the other day. She's already being abused at home. That girl you called fat. She's starving herself. The old man you made fun of cause of the ugly scars. He fought for our country. The boy you made fun of for crying. His mother is dying. You think you know them. Guess what? You don't! Re-post if you are against bullying. I bet 99% of you won't, but you're that 1% with a heart.♥"


            This is a message I got on Facebook which almost blew me. It is so right. Do we ever think before laughing on someone or bullying him/her? We don't. And thus when I saw this I felt it so true that I wanted it to be shared to as many as possible and hence I copy-pasted it here. There have been many instances when I have done this to people and I came to know it later that they are dealing with something related to it which is damn serious. I used to laugh on a boy in school because he never bought tiffin and he always ate from the tiffins of his friends. One day, he told me that his mother has died and his father has married another lady who don't even talk to him and hence he don't get even dinner at home and thus he eats whatever he gets from his friends' tiffin. That was a shocking element for me. Then, I used to make fun of a boy in my college who always went in our college's toilet/washroom for shitting. One day, a friend of mine told me that he lives in a chawl where they have to share a single public toilet on which 50 people of their area are dependent. That was again a Blow on my face.


             In the same way, people used to make fun of my voice in school as I used to stammer a lot. I always felt shy to talk but no one knew that I started talking when I crossed 4.5 years of my age, because of which I lacked confidence whenever I uttered something. I am sibling-less and hence, whenever Raksha-bandhan came in school, everyone used to have Rakhis in their hand except me, they made my fun but they never realized that I don't have a sister and it pains me. In my coaching class in 11th std when I used to attend Chate coaching classes, pupil used to call me "psycho" whenever any teacher used to ask my name, they even did it whenever the attendance used to be taken, they never understood that I was facing that problem really and my psychologist treatments were on. Even today, I am being made fun of somethings which I can't deal with and improve myself. And hence, the first paragraph is very important to keep it in our brain and tongue always. I have been a victim of this and I have also been a criminal of bullying someone unintentionally. So, never ever make someone's fun just because he is not like other normal beings. You never know what they are victim of. 


        Thanks.

very well written..
its coincidence ..recently we had a high school student in ohio killed and injured several students .. it was a shooting incident ;;
four high school kids died ..others were injured ..everyday we hear news abt this shooting ...this child who killed several was an A-grader in studies..very intelligent kid but was always quite ,, it seems he was bullied by several people in school its a complex personality you develop when you make other s loose their confidence..
being bullied or bully other s you spoils their life as a result they come as criminals or people with negative thoughts ..
stop ragging!

vinay said...

Quite touching and well written post... :) :)
Can understand the speech problems and hence the embarrassment out of that because even I didn't speak till 3-3.5 yrs. :P

ANULAL said...

Nice topic you touched upon. Indeed, an intrusion into personal space is an intrusion like any other case,which is inevitably and essentially an act of the most sinister and vicious sort, an outright crime.
Nice job.
Use every word carefully. Keep them as sharp as a sword!
