Insensitive behaviour: An attribute of complete ignorance……by Navpreet Brar
April 23, 2021: I was just going through some posts today morning and came across a wonderful post by our renowned Indian Columnist and Novelist, Ms. Shobha De where she has thrashed this insensitive lot of people who have crossed their limits to showcase how much a person can be ignorant and careless. Yes, she mentioned our beloved stars of Bollywood, who are making most of their free time by holidaying in the Maldives when people in India and most importantly in Mumbai are badly affected and infected by this second wave of COVID-19. I posted my comment also by appreciating what she mentioned but I am really surprised with what these people are up to!
Just an example, we are a nuclear family of four people and have shut ourselves down since last year and have been going out only for those things which are unavoidable and my daughter is waiting for this thing to get over so that we can plan a short trip for her where she can visit places and enjoy. Listen! all you high profiles out there, it's not that any other person can’t afford trips but I guess, the common man is most sensitive than you all because maybe he is the most affected in case something happens. This time is a very hard time for each one of us despite the fact where we are, what we are, to which region or area we belong. This is the time where we all need to put in the best efforts to save ourselves and our fellow beings, our family members, and all others around.
I am astonished, the kind of posts that pop up on our screens, I cannot operate my phone sitting with my family members because you don’t know what’s coming up in the next picture. These Bollywood ladies have gone crazy getting their nonsense pictures clicked and the media posts, “the XYZ is turning the heat on the internet”! Oh! Excuse me! On one side, you are harping on being decent and respectful, and on the other hand, you are just flaunting your bodies and your body parts just as commodities! Give us a break, guys. We are going through a lot and for everyone, it’s more important to be more sensible in handling this situation where every minute someone is losing their near and dear ones because of this pandemic.
Since these people have power and money, they should be utilizing it in providing help, guidance, the right direction to people, and whatever they can do to promote health and hygiene. They should come as a strong force in these times and should make a difference in people’s lives in real life instead of just running away from the situation and holidaying in some isolated places far away from reality.
The farmer, the food producer of the country is on the roads, and the media news is full of the difficulties that farmers are facing due to this unpredictable weather. They have already lost their chance of earning as all their produce is lying in the markets without being protected and procured. Dear celebrities, can you feel this pain?
This is the time when you can become celebrities in a true sense, let people celebrate your wisdom, instead condemn your insensitivity towards the issue and the prevailing conditions. Think of our doctors, they are struggling so hard, it's very difficult for us to wear a mask and imagine they have to wear those PPE kits throughout the day and till the time they are on duty. They are requesting us to be careful, stay home, keep our distance, avoid going out. Become human guys! We are not born without brains. Let’s stand up for our doctors, help them by observing all the necessary things to be observed during these tough times.
Children are bearing the loss, the young people who are eligible for their jobs now are bearing the brunt of this situation, people are losing their jobs, the pressure of performance has increased more than ever. Sitting in an isolated environment, you have to brainstorm a lot, and believe me it takes a lot to be courageous and in the right frame of mind in these times. Where people are struggling with their daily ups and downs, we all need to stand together as one and come out as a strong force to fight this situation. A lot needs to be changed!
Everywhere conferences are happening for Climate Action and these people are just adding to the ‘Carbon Footprint’ by traveling the most and that too through the air which in turn is the biggest contributor of greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere.
We are all a part of the biosphere, the largest ecosystem on Earth and everything is related to the other. Your one little wrong action can lead to a big disaster! I just want to request, please be more sensible, responsible, informed and vigilant, and most importantly empathetic in these times.
