Am I missing something? Am I succumbing to my own emotional outbursts? Perhaps this can not be denied. The day I went along with my friends of ISME to Laalbagh and Vishweshwaraya Electronics museum, the time I spent there, it reminded me of all those incidents which I happily experienced 4 years before, with some of my old buddies.

Manoj’s smile, Debdipta’s gigle, Satya’s pranks, Dipti’s humour, Ruchi’s fashion fundas, Sagarika’s sunken face, Madhusmita’s unnatural sobs, Sweta’s boldness, Jagdish’s bulging biceps, Srimayee’s coolness, Bijay’s crave for love, Shiba’s wilderness, Krishna’s flamboyance and a little struggle of mine to get a bit closer to some girls who I never talked to before.

Things seemed to be a little out of place for some time. But I’m recovering from them gradually. And the good thing is I’m adapting myself to the changing environment.

But what to do with those incidents, which have filled me with utter disgust, shaken my mind with  unhealthy thoughts? Well, I’m adult enough to restrain from indecent acts, but I’m not strong enough to prevent others from doing these things. I’m especially disturbed because of the remarks passed by my friends to some  of the girls that day. Are not we civilized enough to treat women with respect? Can’t we abstain from commenting each and every move they make? And din’t our parents teach us to be gentle?

In my view, all these things have a direct or indirect relationship with our upbringing. We learn from our surrounding. But that doesn’t mean that we are not exposed to good ideas or environments! The thing is, we take immense pleasure in exploring the other sex. Then there is no difference between dogs and us! We the so called human beings, the best ever productions of the manufacturer called The Almighty have committed all sorts of crimes that are possible in this world. You name it, and we have it! We have  left no stones unturned, yet we are more comfortable in leading a dog’s life.

I’ve not been a great optimist in my life, but atleast I can think of and swear to be a good human being.

It is easy to be evil, but it is not that difficult to be human.
