Take a Look

Take a look at people around you. They all are so different but at the same time have some commonality. Let me share my perspective. I see three categories (broadly) – intellectual, not so intellectual and ignorant.

Intellectual are those who listen to all, intently and do what their heart says. Decision taking is independent and not influenced. They reflect pride and arrogance in certain levels.

Not so intellectual, are the ones that get influenced by the intellectual ones and take pride of being superior when with ignorant ones. They are the strugglers.

We also have version II - Kind People. When observed closely you will find a few typical ones in this version. They are subjective or relative in their act of kindness. In most scenarios they help others as per their convenience and wish. They take the onus to decide for you – what is wrong or right? To the world they are kind but, on the contrary they are imposing kindness which the receiver is unable to reject. Distinctive feature of these guys is that they care-less of the associated impact that their act of kindness has.
Emotions, commitment, freedom, dependency, involvement are few of the many intangibles that need to b…
