Wearing Being Human T-shirts doesn't make you a Human !!!

621st BLOG POST -->>



            I have read  "Human is a Social Animal" umpteenth number of times. But because of lack of ideas and maturity, I always thought that being a Social animal means interacting with each other. Actually, it isn't that the age of 22 makes one mature, may be some from 50 years old age group might also not know the meaning of "Social Animal". It is just that I got to observe few instances and examples around me that I learnt the real meaning of being a Socialite. I know that I am still away from getting the real meaning of this but whatever I have understood is too much to improve myself and get into the zone where at least I can claim with blithe that "I have been a good human being". :-) I would like to share few examples with you which will also let you clear your vision about being a Social Animal is actually what. :-) 

             My father got his medical report of whole body check-up. But he wasn't sure about the medicines that were being prescribed to him from the Doctor of one of the most renowned hospitals of Mumbai. And after seeing Satyameva Jayate, it is better to be unsure about doctors. Haha. :-) So, he asked my Mausaji about his query and he suggested my father to come at his place so that they can meet a doctor of their society who is almost like their Family Doctor. My father found this quite genuine and trustworthy. He ended up being there with my Mausaji. He saw the prescribed medicines and suggested my father something(I don't want to go into that stupid details). After that, my Mausaji asked that Doctor to check his blood pressure. Then, while exiting, Mausaji gave 50 rupees to the Doctor, talked to him like a friend and came out. Surprisingly, my father asked him that usually we don't give anything to Doctor for checking blood pressure and nor does he ask for any fees then why did he give him 50 rs. My Mausaji said to my father,"Why is the Doctor sitting there? Obviously, to earn. How many people of my society actually get sick in a day? At most, 10. What will he earn from that? And if he'll not get any money for these blood pressure checking kind of things, how will he survive? Hence, we should give them whatever justifiable to them whenever we ask for such small check-ups or anything". Deep Thought!

             I have a Friend from my Graduation college- Vivek. He has indefinite love for every animal. Whenever we used to sit in our College canteen, dogs would come only to him with their waging tail. Dogs knew that this is the only one who'll buy Pavs and biscuits to feed us. Others will either kick us or name us what they themselves are. :-) Even at his home, he has many animals that he nourishes as pets. He even helped me in getting a pet that I always wanted to have. After seeing the love Vivek has for every animal- even if he pets them or not, I started keeping a bowl of water and grains that sparrows eat in my balconies. It helps them to survive in Summers as they don't find water because of its scarcity. 

           I have a junior from my Graduation college- Asit. He is a part of a NGO that his friends own. Whenever he gets Holiday on weekends and on National Holidays or on any special occasion, he makes it sure that he call his friends and get to know about their schedule related to their NGO. And then he goes with them to teach street kids, make them eat the hygienic food that we eat, play with them, make them acquainted with gadgetry that we use etc. They make it sure that child gets to enjoy every thing that we enjoy in our life because these street kids are only abused and kicked by the Middle-class and High-class people. Asit and his friends make it sure that they bring little happiness in their life. On the occasion of Independence/Republic Day, they dress all the children in white color uniform and hoist flag with them. This is just one instance, there are many such unique activities that they perform with these kids. Quite Amazing and Inspiring!

          I have seen many-a-times while traveling a long route by train that people buy two vada-pavs, keep one for themselves and keep the another one in their bag. Whenever they see a small kid sweeping our coach, they take out that second vada-pav and give it to him so that the child gets something to eat and survive. When asked why do they do this. They have a brilliant answer "He is not poor because of his faults but his parents'. He is sweeping because of them. Imagining myself in his shoes, I just wish to get something to eat. So, I make it sure that whatever I can, I'll surely do for these victims of poverty". Speechless!

          And this is the real definition of being a "Social Animal". And not what we assume. Meeting each other during Festivals is what we consider Socialism. Helping a neighbour by giving him a bowl of curd/spoon of sugar does not make us a Socialite. Calling your friends on their Birthday at 12 AM isn't Socialism. Being Human or Being a "Social Animal" is a huge responsibility that is being given to us by God. And what we do is calculation of our Profits in every quotient of life. We aren't Social Animal, we are just Wild Animal. :-) I am learning a lot from these kind of human beings whom I have mentioned above as one of those rare "Social Animals" and thus, I want all of you to learn these Common senses with me. :-) At least, while breathing our last on a Hospital bed, we will be able to say that "I have been a Good Human Being and God and Humanity will always love me for that" :-) 

       Think!!! I am in my deep reverie too. :-)

 Thanks.

Agree. Not many people are fortunate to have parents who can give them a handful to eat, and an education to help them in making a living.

Most of the times we neglect the people or take them for granted if they are good. Whereas, if a doctor asks us to give 500 rupees for just going through the previous prescription, we give it without asking even once. We take things for granted. Thanks for reminding us.
