Main bhi intellectual
Tip of the tongue intellectuals. We all have them in our lives. Kashmiris – traitors, Muslims – terrorists, leftists – jhola chaap idealists, liberals – clueless idiots, dalits and tribals — who?
So on and so forth. Most of us educated English writing assholes have such compulsion to sound intellectual and such little empathy and patience to read and understand that we have become hollow stereotypes of our own selves.
Think. Empathise. What would do in a similar situation ? Can you even imagine yourself in a similar situation? This attempt at imagining and feeling is called empathy. Try it sometimes.
