VenuG Presents: Views are Views , never Minority or Majority My POV & Perspective

These are the views/points of a Long Term Aquaintance in Kolkata

This is #MyView Counterpoint
I'm reacting my views on your views. I respect yours.
"I see a very disturbing trend in this race to gain
more popularity. Sadly enough, it is seeping in to
Kolkata's veins. "
Well everyone wants to be popular, while some are brave, do, and get popular, the shaky, procrastinate & brood hence miss the bus. Not specific with Kolkata.
 " The trend is to ridicule (and
demean) other people, use choicest of
(un)fashionable English expletives, "
Agree, using expletives never wins an argument.
But having a diametrical opposite & correct view may not mean to demean.
" pick up a topic
like rape / women (in)security, pass one's own
opinion and labelling it as the "general" opinion
and spreading it."
Well, The current ruling party, has a 2/3rd Majority at 31% vote share, whereas UPA with 39% had to run a coalition. An opinion is an Opinion. Example, DMK/AIADMK view in Sri Lanka Tamils, is a minority view, if you look at India as a whole, but , if you look it as entire "Dravidian Population" is a majority view. To a Tamilian Tagore may be incomprehensible, an to a Bengali, Sangan Age Literature of 6th Century BC French.
To BJP The Word Hindu is a majority, but as per Historians, Dravidians & Tribes described as "Dasas" are the original Inhabitants of Sindhu Ghati Sabhyata(Indus Valley Civilization) And Inhabitants of North India are all Aryans from Macedonia or Foreigners. There is no majority/minority view. There are views. We should travel, understand & respect all cultures, not impose ones beliefs on others. Other adopting it on own study is his/her choice. Say I'm a PSU Employee, in Bengal, If I speak or read Bangla, I must be appreciated, but if someone does not want to learn Bangla, they must never be ridiculed, insulted, derided or discriminated against(though it happens) Further, speaking ones mind against injustice, Crimes, wrong practises in the society is NOT wrong but LAUDABLE. Or else, there won't be Gandhi, King, Mandela, Vinci, Copernicus, Socrates, Kailash Satyarthi or Malala Yousafzai! This is for your 👇👇👇point.
  "I see this trend of spreading
hatred / negativity / fear as extremely
"If we want to be popular, let us do it solely
through work and through love. Cheap tactics will
take you places. Not keep you there."
One man's food is another mans poison .
Mainstream, Fence Sitters, Diplomats, never achieve revolutionary changes,
History proves, have given historical examples above, change is brought ALWAYS,
By those Radical Thinkers, who stick their neck out & take a radical view, against a dogmatic, traditional, conservative status quo opinion to make world a better place to Live.

Just this week, Kailash Sathyarthi, from India, who worked to achieve right of childhood for child labourers, who said "Small children, are made to stich and manufacture, the Footballs, which, they are never able to play with, in order to save on cost of labour, while there is a huge army of able bodied unemployed all accross planet earth!"
And Malala Yousafzae, a 17 year old young Pashtun GIRL, from Swat Valley Pakistan, beat the bullet, survived & is fighting for the rights of girls to study in Conservative Islamic Pakistan, to fight for the right to education & going to school for girls.
Her statement "Why is it easier to give guns, than books? Why is it easier to build tanks , than to build schools?" These views are radical, for countries, & firms manufacturing & selling arms and ammunition, as well as, for conservative &,dogmatic  society all over the world. And they both won a Nobel Prize JOINTLY!!!

What you think, is spreading fear, hatred, negativity, might be a Tahrir Square, Pink Chaddi, Jasmine Revolution, Eve Ensler, LGBT movement, Article 377, North Koreans Hacking Sony Pictures, Wikileaks, Edward Snowden, Sec66A. Opposing views to the mainstream POV is not minority view, but personal freedom, conviction and point of view. #POV It is never understood by the masses, as that minority view is ahead of times  . Study the Life of Picasso, Andy Warhol, Steve Jobs, Jim Morrison, Dev Anand, Guru Dutt, D H Lawrence, Socrates, Copernicus, M F Hussein, Ravi Shankar(Sitarist) Sadat Hassan Manto, Ismat Chigtai & Krishna Sobti. They all were ahead of their times. In Life, they were misunderstood. In death revered. There is no Minority/Majority view, there are #VIEWS
