Caring for someone and yet disagreeing with them on views is not

If I have a different sexual orientation, I should know from my experience

that the world does not respect difference and it takes an effort to be accepted. Yet when I myself don't respect difference in other aspects, such as disrespecting someone from a minority community or from a migrant community, there is cause for concern. Because somewhere it is reflecting a dual... Sign in to see full entry.

Deception with words at home is as good or bad as deception in public life.

We carry through our traits wherever we go and our conduct in the one stream, public or private, influences our conduct in the other stream. Imagine a family member agreeing to a decision because the way it has been represented, it seems like something else. Similarly imagine Parliament taking a... Sign in to see full entry.

I don't like someone but just cos i don't like him or her doesn't mean I

have to say all the bad things about her. There is good in the worst of us and bad in the best of us. This is something we are constantly ignoring in our everyday personal lives.

Reaching out according dignity to labour even if it means doing a task that

is not commensurate with one's position in the hierarchy is laudable, depending on the context in which it is done.

I helped an old person step down from the bus, but I don't even think twice

about the old man at home who needs help to move around? is this double standards? Or is the public action for public image? or is the latter more demanding cos it's all the time? Sign in to see full entry.

How personal can we get in interviews/ is that about testing our ability to

control the minds of the persons we hope to employ? Sometimes people ask questions which literally invade into a person's privacy. On the other hand, in their own homes, they will keep issuing fiats about how all that happens inside the family must be kept under wraps. Double standards, isn't it? Sign in to see full entry.

Fight for your rights, we tell others, and others wonder why then we don't

fight for our own rights. if we believe rights are to be fought and do not fight for rights of someone out of charity, then we should hold the same approach when it comes to our own rights being violated, isn't it? Sign in to see full entry.
