Racial Discrimination - A Cancer

By: Leony Moonrose

"Hang around with good and nice people. If you can't find one, then be one."

If you hang around people who have lower standards than you, slowly but surely you'll adopt those same standards too.

why?

Because if you don't adopt those standards, then you start fighting with the group.

This is a common scenario in some social sites like a chat room. Some chatters doesn't want to be proven wrong and you don't want to keep on fighting them, so to make peace, it's just easier to just succumb to the standards of the group.

You continue talking with all the chatters, entertaining them, laugh with them, even sharing bad jokes with all the so-called idiots... your reason? to have fun. To socialize.

What do you get from it anyway? well, by becoming one like them is what you'll get. I'ts not quite fun at all. Instead of fun, you gain stress. Instead of gaining more friends, you ended up hating others.

It is like you are in the middle of a jungle, surrounded by beast and its prey. 
Talking with the morons who made derogatory and racist remarks, not only towards you but also to your entire race, isn't fun at all.
And fighting at them doesn't help as well.


How many times we encountered racist? 
Almost everyday right?
Racism has always been a social cancer. 
It is a problem long ago until now. 


Worrying on fake people, bullying and cloning your id's and personality?

If you really know yourself, you need not to worry at all.
Nobody will ever be able to replicate you.
The better you can develop yourself, the less you have to worry about being replaced because nobody will be able to do what you do simply because they are not you.


I would like to quote Lavi Singh's line: 

"Most idiots in chat rooms are like mad dogs. They keep barking on you regardless of how good you are to them. They always find fault to start a fight. The best way to get rid of these dogs is to ignore them. Ignore doesn't mean you are weak, rather it shows that you are strong and smart enough to deal things in the right way. Never shout back at morons, they couldn't hear you because their ears are close for whatever reasons. So why waste your time with them? If you heard foul words against you, just leave it, after all, I know you and you know who you are. That's all that matters."

Sometimes we are too sensitive that we easily get affected by people's comments. Weather we are in a virtual or in the real world, we fought fire with fire for we feel our dignity and integrity as persons have been stepped upon. But as to what Lavi Singh said, we know who we are.

To judge an entire race just because of a few differences is an injustice by itself. Remember, its the inside that counts. They may have different physical attributes or cultural background than what one has; still, they are human beings. They also feel pain.

Next time,  hang around people,  who have higher standards than you, slowly but surely, you'll adopt those higher standards too.

All the more reason to be very careful of the kind of group you hang around with.

Avoid racist. 
No to racial discrimination!

Life is Not Always What We Think It Is

What are you afraid of?
Alone in the dark?
Getting poor?
Failure?

Do you spend a good deal of time worrying about your status in life, wishing you could swap places with those rich and famous, who you think are living an easy and happy life? Does the phrase “I wish I were that person” has ever cross to your mind?

There are million people in this world. This million people have billion dreams and wishes. Dreams of having a good life with endless happiness.
A kind of happiness everyone wishes to have yet scared to take hard test because what they want is easy drive in the highways.

The moment you open your eyes and see the sunrise, it is the beginning moment of your journey for the day. You've seen hope, all you gonna do is move, otherwise the rising sun is gonna kick your butt. You have to get up -for the heck of just being alive and being tied up into complicated stuff- you still have to get up and it is a must.

That's how it is, we can't complain life.

NAKED STREET

"There are scenes hidden in an open street until clicked."  -Leone Moonrose-


Seeing the invisible. Notice the unnoticed.

Find the beauty through reality of the so-called natural in a concrete jungle... The street.


Observe everything on its environment. What do you see?
Aren't you seeing the naked truth in every lie? 
Aren't you seeing the naked street flashed before the lens of your naked eyes?


"It is not just about who are you seeing, it is all about what are you seeing,.. and WHY."

One fine morning, with a bunch of self confidence in my pocket, a bag of positive insights and a great desire to capture interesting subjects, I went out, headed towards the concrete jungle.




I was walking along the so-called busy street, with my DSLR camera in my hand, ready to click anything that captures my attention. The usual scenario of people going toand fro from their homes to respective business, works, schools or malls wearing different faces, flaunted before my eyes. 


It's a ty…

When our eyes met, there was magic

When was the first time we fall in love? How was the feeling?

      Going back when we first fall in love, on that very unforgettable date, the whole world seems to fade into the background.

      My lover is my no.1, the "center stage" as we call it.  I am yearning of his presence. I just love him so much that I dare not see anyone else. I always look forward of his message. A single "hi" is enough to keep me going the whole day. It made me complete. It made me wear a genuine smile to everyone I met. I didn't mind others opinion about  him. I didn't mind the world. I didn't mind if I was dreaming. All I mind was the sweet feeling of giving love and being loved.
      For sure you guys knew too about this feeling! You knew well how colorful the world of a person in love is. Our  heart can do wonders. We can make songs out from that feeling.  We can even make poems that help us convey the message from our heart. Being in love allows us to see the beauty …
