When I was a student, I was the sort of blind patriot who can’t take the truth. Even though I knew that a lot was wrong with my country, I just wouldn’t hear it. So you can understand why I was outraged when one of my teachers said (actually he quoted someone else), ‘We are a very foolish nation.’ I felt angry at the generalization. I mean some people can’t represent the entire nation right?
Now, I’m no more a student, and having worked on the social media for over a year, I have started to agree with him. The reason I emphasize on working on the social media part is that it makes you reach out to a lot of people without actually having to interact with them. Also, while commenting on posts on different pages, people are so sure that they are anonymous that they don’t hesitate in bringing out the ‘real’ them.
People in our country, even the seemingly educated ones, can be so downright stupid that you feel like smacking their face till you can knock some sense into them. Mix stupid with hateful and the end product is more destructive than you can imagine. They have the unbelievable ability to dig negativity in everything. And their favorite hobby? Bringing religion into everything! EVERYTHING! Like you need preaching among all the religious tension that is consuming this world.
Here are a few characterstics of such ‘commenters’:
1. They can be pretty ironic.
2. They don’t hesitate in proving the other person right by making themselves look like a douche.
3. Insensitivity is their virtue.
6. And they are the best judges when it comes to fahashi.
Do share if you’ve come across any such ‘namoonay’ 😛
