Tolerance is not only a word, when it comes to a society it becomes a quality to inspire others. It comes from good social values and vigilant brought up. Unluckily, this quality is not much in many areas of the world. Although we are living in a “Global Village” but still we are far away from each other. One country have reservation against other, cities has differences between them, a town do not like the tradition of others even neighbors are unhappy with each other. If we talk about the traditions of villagers, they have a dignity to live together, share, care and bear each other. Although, they are different in caste and traditions but still feel themselves bound in an unseen relationship. They mostly welcome the newcomer as an honorable guest and show their hospitality. They ask them for food, take care of them and lead them to the right way, if lost. But many of civilized people have no concern with these ethics.
As a civilized person, many of us came from same backgrounds and know our traditions but forget to implement in our lives. Almost two decades back our elders, often, told us their experiences and bedtime stories. The stories they told us were based on ethics and manners. They had moral lessons for growing kids. We as elders are not passing these beautiful traditions to our next generation. We are too much busy now a days and having no time to spend in such activities. The tradition to sit together on a table at lunch and dinner is rare, that was once a precious time to share things with each other.
Technology is a blessing to our life but many people use this blessing as a curse. At the age of learning, we set our children free to dive in the internet world. Everybody has his own smartphone, laptop or tab without any guidance or assistance. On the other hand, there are many who develop their sites to mislead others. If we are searching for “Games for kids”, many irrelevant sites will appear on your screen. There are many having dating numbers and other mature material that is not suitable for kids.
The second thing I want to share is an addiction to games; there are many that are good and providing a healthy atmosphere for growing kids but still, there are some risks involved in it. Sometimes we are not monitoring our kids and provide them liberty to play any game; even it contains a lot of violence or race of winning over dead bodies. Of course, the dead ones are being shown as a villain but still, we are not free to murder anybody in real life.
Many organizations are raising their voice to protect the wildlife but gamers are free to hunt any animal or bird. No doubt, it is all in the virtual world but still, we are making the minds and manipulating our kids to do same in the real world. Boys love to fight with the dummy weapons in their childhood and bring this interest up in their teenage. This tricky and complicated age is difficult to handle, all we can do is to guide our children in the right direction at the age of learning.
Well, I am not contradicting my previous share, in which I was against to manipulate our children and letting them flourish according to their inner voice. My point is to advise them for right and wrong, they are our future and we are responsible for them. Our ignorance could lead towards an impatient society. We are still witnessing many violent and intolerant incidents of terrorism. Killing and crushing many innocents without any authority is become common. Firing incidents at public place without any reason is also talk of the town. If we put ourselves at the place of the person who lost his dear one in such incident, then we can feel the pain. If we think as a human, it is not only their loss but it is collateral, if they are bearing it today, tomorrow, it could be(God forbid) our turn.
Therefore, I think this behavior of ignorance is not cool; we should care and watch the activities of our children. Also, we should manage to provide their appropriate space for their better future. All we need to give them some time for share and care so that they could tolerate others to mix with them. Do well and rest will be good for you.
