Lets Be Human

April 25th 2015 .  Time – 11:15 am

I was in the neighbourhood market to deposit a month old cheque in the bank. It was a hot humid day, thus wearing a simple t-shirt with half pant and sandals was justified. I was walking carefree on the mildly busy dusty road when a trivial juice shop caught my attention.

ObservationTwo teenage guys had just ordered juice when an unkempt girl of probably 5 – 6 years walked shyly and stood by their side. Out of the two, one of the slightly over-weight guy asked if she wanted anything. After confirming, he ordered the shopkeeper for another glass of juice.

Isn’t that a nice gesture? I was moved. Without foreseeing any benefit for himself whatsoever, he genuinely offered a glass of juice to a fellow human, whom most of us mistakenly see as ‘Street dwellers’.

Go away” are the first two words spoken when a street dweller comes near us. We overlook the human aspect and judge them by their clothes. Is that fair?

They don’t judge us before coming near whether we are filthy rich or middle class people, then why do we?

Now the crazy part – #BeingHuman was not printed on his t-shirt nor was he a part of any ‘social experiment’.

For offering a helping hand to fellow human we don’t need to be tagged. All we need is our heart’s to be in the right place.

Stop being #BeingHuman for just the sake of being tagged and Lets Be Human for real.
