Being Blind


I am blind. I can’t see. But wait!! I can see the blooming flowers smiling in delight, the river water sparkling in moonlight. Then why am I blind? What am I missing?

I am blind because I want to ignore something. It’s the truth. I want to hide from truth. I don’t want to face the bitter truth. Why? Because I fear.

Why do I fear? From whom am I afraid? I fear because I am afraid to face the consequences. I am afraid of society, that it might turn against me for supporting something “unnatural”. I am afraid of religion, that it might hurt the age old “beliefs” and “practices”. I am afraid of myself, that going against the “rule” may tamper my image.

So I choose to become “blind”. I prefer to stay “safe”. I support the “normalcy”, shout for the “truth” and come back in my sweet little home, thinking – “Who cares?”

  1. Precise and powerful posts are bomb! It’s just that although when taking society as a whole people want to be a part of it but when it effects them as an individual they turn blind to it.. I don’t know if that made sense!

  2. Yes of course.. People are in general very selfish and somewhat “peace loving” by nature.. We will shout “justice” but when things go against us, all protest just vanishes.
