“Culture is largely an invisible wonder which remains invisible until realised and unless practised.”
I am not at an hospital or a mental asylum but all that I visualise now is the picture of doctors around the globe and their service to humanity. From my experience so far I had with people earlier I came to know many having pleasant experience and few having bitter conversation with doctors.
Let me check how these experiences going to shape my thoughts as I write here further.
You might have heard and read about this topic several times elsewhere before. It just sparked to my mind again and I felt to share my views once more. I can do this repeatedly as long as it serves the purpose most desirable.
Every human being has the responsibility to serve their nation and society. We can find opportunities to do this and play our role well. While all can find opportunities, doctors need not have to look for it. They are direct servants to people by profession.
Today when we celebrate world doctors day it reminded me of their greatness and service to our society. We are not complete without them. Let’s just analyse what they do when they diagnose a patient without going in details about their work and studies. Simply talking in a layman’s term we can say they find the root cause of the disease and then take action to cure us from it.
Anything that goes against social and human values is also like a disease. It’s like an epidemic when people get affected by it from others without their true knowledge. It makes people mentally sick over time when widespread at a larger part of the society. The worst affected are children. We all can play the role of doctors to some extent and cure illness in society when we understand the root cause.
The problem is acute when the disease is already widespread but only very few realise it. If you have already discovered the root cause still you may not get good support from all if you express your views without their understanding. It’s because of their wrong practice over years and people are already under it’s grasp. It’s acting like a slow poison and killing people from inside gradually over a long period that they don’t realise now well. This sickness gives them pleasure and they don’t want to give up. So, it’s required to generate awareness before taking any action as no action can bring benefits without support of all.
What is the difference between doing the right things and doing things right? Is it directly linked to our culture? Probably I can have a better perspective with good understanding of our culture. So, before analysing about doing the right things let’s understand more of our culture. A culturally fit society can successfully root out all evil plants spreading illness in it.
Culture is an invisible wonder only to be realised and practised. It has no physical appearance but visible at large upon realisation. It can be preserved with practice. This is purely my personal opinion that may be analysed and reviewed further. I remember few words I listened from eminent speakers at a leadership summit. In simple words they defined culture as follows:
” culture is something about what we do when nobody is watching. ”
If I understand the above well I feel it’s about doing the right things all the time irrespective of what others say about us and if anybody watch us or not. Then only we are culturally fit as it’s now ingrained in our blood along with other core values.
We do the right things to please others because we feel insecure to do anything unpleasant in the presence of others. We start following our wrong pursuits at the slightest opportunity as we are passionate about it and practising these habits for a long time now.
We don’t like to do any analysis on our habits whether right or wrong as long as it’s pleasurable to us. We find it difficult to give up even when we understand it’s a wrong practice. Certain practice’s are predominant in the name of religion as well and people who realise find no courage to go against these because of the fear of social wrath. It needs strong determination, courage and simple practice.
We can bring any change if we start following our heart. Mind often misguides but a pure heart will never guide anybody think and act wrong. It will never ask you to hurt your fellow human beings and cause pain to any living organism.
With the above strong pursuits in mind I can visualise cultural fitness at large and practical realisation not far away. It’s quite attainable and as simple as our understanding.
When we do the right things we help ourselves and all around grow further culturally. It’s very much essential for our own security and upliftment of the human race.
Let’s all unite together to build a great society with strong culture that can last forever.
I wish all a very Happy Doctors Day for their continued and countless service to humanity!!
