News and self

IPL and cricketers and politicians and politics and movie stars and fan clubs and cricket lovers.....

Volcanic ashes and airports and travel reschedules and never-ending waits and missing appointments....

Accusations and trials and sentences and law points....

Elections and votes and seats and promises and social welfare talks....

Earth Day and Global Warming and Weather forecast and traffic jams.....

Exams and tests and admissions and marks and vacations and summer camps and troubled parents.....

So much is happening around and much more is telecast as prime time news each minute on the media.

Whatever happens, there is always a whole list of things to take care of in our personal lives... wonder why and how we spend so much time and energy worrying more than we should, about the rest of the worldly happenings, whether or not it is of some importance and relevance to us and our community... If at all we happen to hear something relevant to us and our community, most often there is no point in taking it too much into ourselves. If possible we need to contribute to the cause, learn something from it, else just keep moving on instead of wasting all the time we have in hand discussing about it or in some worst cases, worrying about it.

I am not being indifferent to the worldly happenings, but I do see a psychic effect in some of us towards some of these news casts. The constant follow-ups and talks some people get into on one or more of these news gossips, makes me wonder if watching news is to just take time off one's own real life for a few minutes....

I must say I am a bit disappointed with this blog... How can you as an educated and intelligent person talk so selfish about self and not worry about what's happening around the world? Or may be I am jumping the gun to say that you do care along with your own baggage but may be in moderation?

News doesn't happen by itself, it is made out of events whether created by nature, people or selfish people who continuously create noise for their own advantage. Agreed that it's not always good news but that's quite naive to expect all good all the time.

Life shouldn't always start and end with just I... We are social animals and by definition it includes everything you mentioned in your article and more!

I would like to see every person believing that it's not always about THEM but also care for others around us...

Please stop and think about it!! (don't cost a whole lot of your valuable time)
Peace!

Hi Ωρίωνλφκε,

Thank you for your expression. Exactly the kind of thinking I want to say.. If you are thinking like this, I am perfectly fine. I am only concerned about people who keep rattling pointlessly about the same thing without really contributing anything to the community...

See, I do have a friend who changed my view on being socially responsible. He and his friends are taking initiatives to minimize inappropriate behaviour towards innocent children. Now, that is the kind of involvement I would appreciate.

I dont say do not talk about what you heard, but the psychic effect that people display at times on some news casts, be it politics or science, sports or business, style or movies, totally makes me nuts :)

Otherwise I definitely agree that being self centered is not what we are here for in this world :)

If my post has not conveyed my point right, I will take care to improve. Thanks a lot Ωρίωνλφκε :)

Keep reading and posting comments :)

Thank you ... I am with you on contributing to something... or in my words, you got all you have now it's time to give some back (well, I am not exactly a socialist). Do your share....

I must say, your blog did confuse me. I couldn't quite figure out whether you are in or out :)

My best wishes your friends for their initiatives.

Adios'
