The moment I saw this picture, I realized it is definitely something I would love to share…
A couple of days ago I was at a historical monument with my friends. We were a little unhappy as we aren’t allowed to take pictures. Appreciating the art we often gasped “Awwh beautiful! I wish they let cameras inside.” As we walked ahead our eyes caught the flash. That was surprising… “Isn’t Photography prohibited!?!” We were disturbed to see 3 to 4 people taking pictures from their mobile phones, most of them looked very sophisticated and I was further shocked to see a mother forcing her son to capture a picture quick.
Unsure about how to react we moved further. We thought we would better complain to the policemen. As we turned around to find him we were upset to notice the policemen was seeing everything happening and didn’t bother to take any action. Deep within us THE RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN woke up. We warned few people, but they didn’t receive it well. It’s not easy to take criticism, not for us too. Many thoughts were running in our minds – couldn’t they see the board? How dare they react like this breaking rules? Lets walk away! We shouldn’t have warned them! Probably its not our business! Nobody can stop them! NOBODY!
We walked ahead with our so called helplessness to stop. One of my friend walked to a boy taking a picture , showed him a CCTV camera and said “Beware buddy! eyes are on you!” The boy slipped his phone inside and we didn’t find him taking it out again. That was a clever way of warning someone. No matter how well we know we are wrong, its not easy to accept it when someone points out. Sure communication is an art 🙂 This makes me feel how much constructive criticism is important in life.
When people didn’t react to our warnings we decided that its not our duty anymore. I guess we do face many such situations where we feel helpless to handle it , we fail to make an effort thinking things could go worse but what I got today was more than an experience, It’s the sense of responsibility . When people say no one can stop things ,we subconsciously accept it without realizing that we missed our chance.
If Nobody can stop things then LETS BE NOBODY!!
