Social Anxiety

Over the past couple of weeks, every other news channel at one time or the other would indeed cover the missing MH370. Every other social network is filled with echoes of many concerned souls (well, each proclaim to be socially concerned and highly humane) over loosing the plane and how it bothers to just even hear the news and how much each one comes out and says “I can really feel the pain they are going through, the government should not be such callous when it comes to safety of passengers. They should be more vigilant. My heart goes with each of the soul in that plane and I, with all my heart wish, that all of them are safe and sound where ever they are”.

Am from a city, the software hub of South Asia (Bangalore, India) and it really irritates me when people speak of non-sense. I can accept Bull Shit to an extent, but, this is peaks of nonsense! In the place I live in, people are such insensitive that they lack the basic common-sense to give side to an ambulance when it comes to driving. No matter how hard I try to think it through from the person who is not giving the way to the ambulance, I am still at loss for a plausible and logical explanation. Yeah, I know, he wishes to reach home early or reach office early as his 2 mins of time is more precious than the immediate medical treatment! He or she is such an important individual in the society that they need to be in that specific place by that time else the entire world would collapse (who knows they are averting a third world war).

I should say this too, people indeed turn blind eye when they see a mess on the road or some incident where a lending hand can make a difference yet they are socially active when it comes to social media and goes online and complains government is not doing anything.

One should be bold enough to accept the fact that, majority of the people who went online to know the answers are worried, if they are on the plane and such a thing happens what would be the outcome. All they care is reassurance, such an incident won’t happen. So, they come and ask you, search the ocean (as if the ocean is completely clean and just the only debris that lies in the ocean is this plane.)

I would feel more than happy if people post but before posting just think and speak truth! Come out of the idiocy and remove the mask and speak the truth! It really irks me when someone says a thing they don’t mean and they have an inner meaning. Majority of the souls that went online and posted are socially responsible (only online not offline).

They are indifferent when it comes to helping others in their reach yet they are terribly sorry when it comes to complete set of strangers! Doesn’t it sound weird? Come on guys, face it. Being selfish is fine but thinking others are fools is stupidity. Please refrain from posting in social media and starting debates in it unless one is determined enough to come out and take the responsibility and make a change!

If not, post the facts. Why show a sympathy when one feel none? That’s insane! One might come back and retaliate at me on this, but each of you knows am speaking the truth! Irony of fact is everyone wants to hear it but none has the stomach to digest it.

Am not saying what happened with the plane is acceptable, all am saying is, don’t get carried away by the general mob’s emotion. Won’t we all know this might be one of the outcomes when we board the plane? If every person who posts prayers are such serious world would have been clean by now! All am saying is, don’t fake it. It’s not required. No one cares whether I care about the missing list nor I care if you care about the plane. We can condemn as one but speaking nonsense really irks me.
