Not only my hands but also my heart is shaking while writing this. People doing such kind of inhumane acts really astounds me. Don’t their hands get wavered? Do they not fear God? This is EXTREME. Finding peace in harming others and breaking the rules is EXTREME.
Various parts of our country have been under strict lockdown due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases. And yesterday, the so called religious people started pulling the Rato Machindranath Chariot, breaking the rules of government. For those of you who don’t know about Rato Machindranath Jatra, it is a chariot procession honoring the Buddhist deity of compassion Avalokiteśvara held in Lalitpur, Nepal.
They call themselves religious by doing so. Is there nothing greater than our religion, culture and tradition? Is humanity really on the verge of extinction?
Be a HUMAN first.
Whatever I’ve dreamed of, I’ve always put the people of our country at first. I’ve always wanted to make a change around the world. And I felt extreme pain and anger due to yesterday’s incident. To be honest, such incidents are happening almost everyday these days, sometimes to the health professionals and police officers (which gets highlighted) but often to the helpless citizens whose voices go unheard or unheeded. But they all are HUMANS first. Everyone has been treated so harshly, and no one has received justice yet. One human is doing harm to another human (and to animals as well).
People are being called sheep nowadays. But really, animals are far better than humans. There is NO COMPARISON between humans and other animals. But wait, can we call ourselves human if we don’t have humanity at all?
We never used to hear such news before, may be due to the lack of social medias or due to fear people never used to raise their voices. I was talking about the matter with one of my friends. I told her how sad I was with the news and I felt like I was dreaming big for the wrong people. I was really tired of hearing such incidents every day, and told her that I wanna get rid of these people and leave the country (in anger), to which she replied, “Wherever you go, it’s the same and you aren’t going to find peace anywhere.” And that really hit me hard. Where are we heading to?
