Man_ is a really funny animal

When I was a child, I was taught that, “Man is a social animal”. We were bemused, at the prospect of being referred to as animals…we found it very funny…small things are big deals for kids...Alas! We had to grow up into adult animals burdened with the baggage of a human life.

However, having grown up into a full bloom animal, (oops! social animal-which of course is only a facade) I realize that the definition of a man was so untrue.

MAN, in fact is a biased animal. Yes, he is biased to the core, the root cause of universal maladies of present times. Mankind is plagued by the nature of his own being. He is divided into sects, religions, caste, creed, race, nationality, regions, civilizations…oh! You can come up with several segregating options..it is just another mind game. I love somebody because he belongs to my club (read whatever you would like to) and somebody outside my circle is my potential enemy.

Is there someone who is a human man, instead of being a man-made human? We are trapped in a vicious cycle created by our own distorted psyche. How can we break free from the shackles of our tendency of constant classification and club formation? We are so fixated with favoritism that we become shameless without a trace of grimace. You can find it anywhere, in the workplace, in the sports field, in social gathering, in political arenas or the ongoing international wars among nations.

Anyways, this is just another blog post!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody will pay any heed. The trend is- man has bowed only to a catastrophe, since time immemorial.
