What kind of people have we become?

We walk by without stopping.
We can describe how someone’s brains got splattered over the road in gory detail without flinching.
We forget friendships and remember our egos.
We want promotions and hate those who get them.
We can put some thousand songs on a palm sized machine and not listen even if they are playing.
We say we are in love but still contribute to the growing number of divorces.
We say we will cherish someone forever but do not think twice before going to bed with someone else.
We say we love flowers but sulk if we do not get diamonds.
We want our children to be safe but let rapists go because of our burning need for human rights.
We can afford to buy that latest cell phone model but cannot give a rupee to a beggar because he should be working, not begging.
We write porn as then pass it off as alternative literature.

    yes I can hardly see any person these days who doesn’t contradict his own statements in less than a day’s time. I feel man today is more confused than ever in the history of mankind…

    What’s wrong? (see inline in front of `//’ for my comments:

    We walk by without stopping. //we’re hardworking and busy
    We can describe how someone’s brains got splattered over the road in gory detail without flinching. //we’re being realistic
    We forget friendships and remember our egos. //not true.. i diagree, can’t generalise
    We want promotions and hate those who get them. //it’s a competition.. tho’ i rather admire those who got them and look to learn.. not hate them
    We can put some thousand songs on a palm sized machine and not listen even if they are playing. //thats what you call creating an ambience and not losing yourself to it
    We say we are in love but still contribute to the growing number of divorces. //population growth leads to divorce growth. for that matter even the number of successful marriages is up.
    We say we will cherish someone forever but do not think twice before going to bed with someone else. // how does that mean you no longer cherish the first?
    We say we love flowers but sulk if we do not get diamonds. //never look a gift horse in the mouth.. when did one become expectant for a gift?
    We want our children to be safe but let rapists go because of our burning need for human rights. //this never happened. the rapist for hanged in the issue i think you are referring to.
    We can afford to buy that latest cell phone model but cannot give a rupee to a beggar because he should be working, not begging. //true. this is purely what you wanna promote or not promote.
    We write porn as then pass it off as alternative literature. //lit. is meant to thrill and stimulate teh senses… what can do that better than porn?

    Humans are by nature flawed. Always were and always will be. Inspite of it being the root of all problems, it is the very thing that keeps life interesting!
