Change Your Thinking!

Dear People Of Srinagar,
This is my message to all of you. I am very disgusted at your thinking, perspective and  outlook. I am sorry to say that your minds have taken a shortcut and are soooooooo narrow that even narrowness cannot define the intensity of the narrowness and shallowness of your minds. Let me give you a reality check : you are all a gossip. You people gossip and  backbite behind your own friends which is vety disgusting and insulting. You people walk around, head held high, and say that you have modernised. Physically? Yes. Mentally? No!!
Mentally, you all have degraded to such extent that I have no words to describe how much. I feel at a loss for words to describe your shallow minds.
As its said :

Brilliant people discuss ideas
Ordinary minds discuss events
And shallow minds discuss people.

I hate to say this about my own people but you have got to improve. If you see a girl talking to a boy, why do you immediately jump to the conclusion that she’s his girlfriend? I mean do you really not trust the girls at all? He could be her brother or cousin. Or just a friend. Why do you make your own opinions, spreads rumors and make the life of the girl a living hell?
I mean why? Why do you talk and discuss other people? Why cant you stick to your own business? Why do you pester the girl? If she just wants to be friends, why do you label her as a girlfriend? Why? Why?!?!?
I am disappointed at the way things are in srinagar. This kind of behaviour hurts everyone. Everyone.
Care about other people’s feelings too. Remember that they will get hurt if you talk about them and spread rumors. Dont make yourselves such people whom no one can trust. Dont do that. It will all come back to you. One day.
Please!!! Leave everyone alone!!!

  1. nice concern but this thing is quite often in Asian countries. people sometimes call it as care but is it care i gonna say no it is sucking. but buddy u cant blame the whole Srinagar for it there are some black sheep’s don’t give them a fuck and move on with your life you are the master of your destiny. u can do whatever u want who the hell are they to interfere. they cant comment on your inner self u are only one who knows much about yourself . it is narrowness in their thoughts. try to groom them up instead of blaming them up.
    after all that is our home place our culture and we cant put a noble culture like ours so down because of a few people. we know what our culture is. the care love affection respect for each other that that we see in our culture is nowhere else. presently i am living in a multi cultured society where i know many people of different countries and at the end i feel that ours is the best culture. it makes me feel proud and should make u too .
    so better to groom them up not blame them like a narrow minded person.
    hope u agree! :p

  2. Sorry to know that you have to endure such a situation in Srinagar. Would you mind if I tell you a bitter little truth?
    These people, who are spreading rumors, are usually either old (and have basically nothing more important to do in their lives) or they are people of/around your age who cannot but feel jealous about you mixing up with people whom they don’t know (so they don’t do anything worthwhile in their lives either, anyway).

    Nobody will listen to you in spite of how much you want them to welcome change, because in their eyes, they are never at fault at all! (that’s such an irritating narcissistic tendency) The only person who ends up being changed is you. So, either we have to stand up for what we believe; else give in to others’ opinions and compromise, until one day we realize that we have gotten nothing back in return.

    Terrible world? Yes.
    Will it change for the better? (even the optimist inside me sometimes says) Probably not.

      1. As I said, either they are too old or they’re just around your age and might be among your own, umm…(shall I say) “friends”?
        It’s a sorry state to be in (not referring to Srinagar, but the “state”! (-; ). Since I happen to live in India, I can understand what might be the situation prevailing at your place. I wish women have the same rights as we do (although I must say that I’m not supporting feminism here. That’s a totally different issue altogether).

        Quoting Blackfield’s track “Some Day” –
        “Some day
        You will find a better place to stay
        You’ll never need to feel this way again..”
        (that’s the stupid optimist inside me)
