“RIGHT TO SPEECH”
Do you really think, that this right gives us the freedom to speak whatever we want and wherever we want, in India?
If you think so, then this is not the case. BEWARE! the next time you say the word Bh*NCH*D because you never know what it may result in.
Many Delhite Boys use this ‘gali’ in place of full-stops, at the end of their every sentence.
And this landed one such boy in a BIG trouble.
This Recent incident that happened in Mumbai will leave you stunned. Delhi boy, Daksh Bharadwaj had no idea, that the word, he usually used to express his frustration will result in this:
He was out late in Mumbai. While trying to find out available parking space, he frustratedly said to his friend, “Bh*nch*d, doesn’t look like we’re finding one today.“, which was a pretty regular thing for him to say.
But then, 30-men nearby heard him and assumed that words were directed towards them.
Without even asking him for any justification they pulled him out of his car and started beating him for next 10-15 minutes continuously without even giving a thought that they were fighting in the ratio 15 to 1. As what he said, didn’t sound good to them. He even tried to explain them and apologized.
Isn’t this just another form of Intolerance??
As a matter of fact, a huge crowd was gathered, and they were all just behaving like the audience. Nobody intervened while the beating continued, some people who knew Daksh, even they didn’t help him out.
We live in a nation where we talk about intolerance, justice, we do candle marches. What is the use of all this, when at the time when we can help the person we actually don’t, because we don’t want to get involved in that matter?
This incident gives rise to many questions, “Are we really safe?” What if, next day, some people come to you and start beating you up because they found something you said, offensive, without even hearing you out and nobody comes up to you for help.
When celebrities talk about growing intolerance in India, we deny, but keep yourself in Daksh’s place and think- Are we safe. Instead of being judgmental on what some celebrity has said, think if you, as a common man, are safe because anybody can do anything, anybody can come up to you and beat the hell out of you like it happened in the case of Daksh.
And if you want to make this world a better place and worth living, start taking initiatives. Think about other’s issues as your own because you never know when and where you are its next target.
Start to bring the change in yourself that you want to see in the society.
