BASIC ESSENCE OF HUMANS IS TO BE LOVING

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Sir,

There is no particular moment in time when we need love and compassion; rather they are a part of our basic nature. The basic essence of being a human being is to be empathetic, loving and compassionate. When we see a person who is in trouble, we should try to put ourselves in his or her shoes and then try to feel what he or she must be going through. This process makes us aware of what our ideal behaviour should be like. If we see women then we should try to be compassionate towards them, view them as partners in development and not sexual objects to play with. Here am not saying show them sympathy.

Sufferings

This is the least that is needed. Rather we should understand the sufferings they go through and try to lessen their pain by being genuinely empathetic and treating them normally and not doing things that would harm them.
International research identifies several factors that can contribute to violence against women. It is well established that such violence occurs in societies due to the overarching gender inequalities between men and women as well as community attitudes that condone violence against women or view it as a private matter. Violence against women is more prevalent in societies where there is greater gender inequality and where there are strict gender codes and expectations. Further exacerbating the problem is the perpetuation of gender inequalities effected by violence against women.

Understand

We should, at all times, try to feel what another person is going through. This will help us understand their condition and will enable us to be thoughtful. There are instances when people mock someone’s ailments. This is nothing but lack of compassion in them. Doing this increases the hardships of the person already in pain. Love and compassion are a state of mind that should be with us all the time. We don’t need to be a saint to practice this in life. There are endless moments when we can shower love and care on women. The feelings of compassion and love are not restricted to other humans but also apply for animals and other living beings. Since we are the most developed of all the creatures on the planet, it is an extra responsibility for us to be considerate to animals and other lower species. It is only these feelings that make us different and above any other living organism on the planet.
