LUNCH Hour in the Office – “Hey check out that girl in the purple dress which got a butterfly tattoo on her shoulder” . I gazed towards her direction . I always have a weak spot for tattoo . Why ? i will get back to the topic later.
We both looked towards her . She was beautiful and i was staring at her butterfly tattoo and thinking the butterfly tattoo signify free spirit , the battle for what her tattoo might signify was going on and then suddenly i was shocked to hear a comment about her from a group of guy’s in the adjacent table.
I don’t want to write that comment but the sheer thought of it brings makes me angry and disappointed .
Getting a Tattoo is always a individual choice . His/Her body – His/her Choice.
Just because a person has a tattoo doesn’t make that person characterless and what the hell do we mean by characterless ?
One of my friend has a tattoo and the tattoo doesn’t change anything about the person & i have never come across more honest and determined person than her.
WHY I CAN’T WE MIND OUR BUSSINESS .
She told me about the reaction about her relative about the tattoo . When elder’s have such a outlook how can you expect younger generation to change the outlook ?
NOTE : I have tried getting tattoo twice and being close to getting it done and every time i tried to get it done i chicken out in the last moment . Its not easy thing to inscribe something on your body. Don’t insult the person with such comment .
Our culture is the oldest culture in the world and it teches you to respect elders, women and not to steal, lie or hurt .
We cannot hide in the ambush of OUR culture . Our culture never allow to molest women (from recent guwahati molestation case) , not to pass obscene and vulgar comment on women .
Why we tend to forget that if There was No Women , we never would have been born .
We are working in I.T industry and are Engineer and most important literate person and if we can’t change our mentality , How do we expect to bring about the change in the country.
Instead of being literate , we should start being educated . There is a big difference .
THE Change starts from Within.
This blog is written with the intention of bringing about the change .
My appeal to every one next time you hear such a comment , Stand UP .
& yes i did stand up and made the person realize about his Hypocrisy .
Be The Change you want to be .
I am spreading Awareness , What about you?
