Being accepted and appreciated by other fellow beings has been a very basic need of every person since ages. And individual have done so much to stand out from others.
And in this Digital Era, this basic need has been aggravated and captured in a more systematic and creative manner. The digital world is filled with social networking platforms where people are fulfilling this need, both personally and professionally.
People are leaving no stone unturned to increase the number of fans / followers / links / friends. Every now and then, they check and recheck their profile for a feel good factor. Almost everyone wants to ride the wave of being famous-one.
But how unfortunate it is when majority of these people forget to understand their responsibility towards all those connections, who’s requests they had accepted to make them a part of their respective networks.
People wanted to connect with each other, and this is a very natural behaviour. Mostly driven by the feeling called ‘hope’.
When one tries to communicate to his or her fellow beings and there is no revert, it diminishes the importance of very basic but natural expectation from the fellow beings. One can easily interprets it as “I like to be liked and followed but I do not like to like and follow.” Or “They are too busy in increasing the number of connections rather communication with them.” And these interpretations or mere assumptions take away the Respect fromantic the relationship, no matter how important or casual it is.
Some wise man once quoted,”Take away anything from people; but never take away their hope”.
I wish and hope the message reaches to all those who are forgetting their basic responsibility. At least answer them. Even if it is out of your capacity or capability to fulfill their needs or desires. State your situation or position candidly. But communicate. Your respect will increase in their eyes. Please do not take away the hopes of people; for God’s Sake.
Being a ‘Human Being’ and being a’Homo Sapien’, there is a very deep difference.
However, I will only give my personal version the definition of a ‘human being’ by simply providing the full form to the word and that is Hope-Understanding-Motivation-Appreciation-Nurturing (Human), Blessing-Encouraging-Inspiring-Nourishing-Genteel (Being).
