Prejudice

Take 1:

"So do you two get along?",
asked the calm one
"No, we just don't......"
said the emotional one,
"wonder if it is me or him
There is a problem..."

The calm one just replied-
"I don't beleive that
No one can be that bad!"

Expln: May be their prejudices is blocking their view
sometimes we just form up an opinion,and are unwilling
to change it..May be if we just thought for a minute
setting aside our prejuidices, we might realise that nobody
can be as bad as we imagined!


Take 2:

The little jealousy
over that great skin ,
that subtle beauty,
and the pretty eyes,
made me prejudiced,
till you called me,
a great friend!

Expln: This is so totally a girl thing!
Girls tend to get jealous of prettier girls and the attention that
the prettier girls get..yet if that pretty girl is your good friend, you learn
to see beyond the jealousies!

IBH said...

btw, i liked ur T2 a lot.....i guess all gals are like that! :)

Iris said...

Well...
What if some one is prejudiced that all people are good? That's also bad naa? The person is bound to get hurt without even knowing it! Taken for a ride! I think one balances the other in real life...

Jealousy is like the worst start to a friendship. But i know from experience that things dont get any worse... It just keeps getting better and better. Ofcourse i cant comment on the jealousy over physical beauty:)

nalla soneenga,I wanted to write about this but kind of little afraid about this topic, since not so good looking girls and boys will be after me.
some of these beautiful people are also nice human beings and wanted to be treated just like anyother normal person would be treated.
May be I should go ahead and post it
what say,

I have seen examples of the kind of cold vibes that not-so-good-looking girls give to their better-looking counterparts. But as you say when the two are friends, the differences usually resolve but I have always wondered one thing about our movies - why is it that the heroine should have average-looking girls only as her friends? I have seen this being played out repeatedly. Does this mean two good-looking girls can never see eye to eye?

Good observation monu.

Reg. Thennavan's doubt, if the heroine's friend is good-looking , the audience will end up looking at her and not the heroine!

Whatever aspect of a hero or heroine the movie makers plan to show, they make sure that the hero/heroine is THE best in that.
Since, unfortunately, in a lot of movies, the heroine only has to look good , it is made sure she looks better than her friends.

Of course, a portion of the blame rests on the audience for this state of affairs.
