photocredit:sharepicshub.blogspot.com Cost of being a human is pretty higher these days.The identity of a human‘s existence is categorized by his country, religion, his not so known caste and the known gender and lastly by his name.Every such nomenclature brings a tag along with it.The tag has its own positive and negative effects depending on the place where it is being used. Centuries later since the Stone Age had started; we all are again lost in the crisis of identity and existence.Being a speck in this world, our nonexistent identity tries to reach atop through several means. Such efforts right or wrong are not considered, when the result is achieved.In the process, we tend to forget that we are offspring’s of mankind and not species of any animal kingdom. As during this desperateness of being known or getting attention, we follow a path which takes us in a complete different direction. Like the youngsters and the religious fanatics drive themselves to the edge of extremism to flaunt their views and try to enforce those on the rest of the world. While doing this, they tend to forget that extremism in any case has never been beneficial and has led to conflicts, killings, wars. How can a race so called as human allow such gruesome incidents under the name of religion?Being human is a somewhere lost in today’s world, where we have lost the essence of kindness and humanity. The First World is busy in reestablishing its position and trying to recover from the slumping economy, whereas the Second one is getting over the glitches of slow progress and finding new ways to get through . The assumed Third world has never existed in the picture of the global map, unless some calamity or unrest is heard of in these countries and the rest of the world flocks in to show sympathy by aiding these. But never have humans tried to lend a hand to the weaker, poorer, unstable sections of mankind or nations, it has always been dominated by the powerful and the hypocrites section of the society. photocredit:sharepicshub.blogspot.com To live and survive in this kind of world, the lone human has lost his identity and is now known by the tags he has been born with. His nature, character, disposition remains irrelevant and so to overcome and get noticed, he has shed the skin of being human. He now dons an animal skin and slowly getting into the instincts of those creatures, forgetting the characteristics of humanity. The imbalance whether ecological, financial, economic or of progress always has been a threat to the mankind. Cutting off these edges from the society and trying to make it even, shall reinstate the humaneness in being human.

So true. I, somehow, am against religious identity when I see wicked men and women spreading hatred, nurturing prejudices as well as taking human lives. The arrogance of First World is such a put off and this mentality of dominating the world is so vulgar!
Yes Vishal, interpreting words and scriptures to meet selfish ends and mislead has become a trend. And hatred is something which is being sowed many times, these actions are pitiable and disgusting
