Prejudice: Game of Illusions

Humans have tendencies to draw conclusions very quickly. Human brain tries to justify whatever they see or they think or they choose. This reaction takes place in the brain in matter of seconds. Many a times we conclude and stick to that point before knowing entire story of it. When it comes to relations, prejudice can play double role, a good one which often teams up with instincts and act as a warning and sometimes as worst as understanding a person completely wrong.

While walking across the streets if you come across a beggar who is hitting stones on dogs vigorously, you might conclude how heartless and insane it is to do so? Rewind this a bit, and you’ll see the dogs attacking the beggar, biting him and taking away the piece of bread he arranged for his meal.


This happened with me too. I had a fellow mate who was kinda hipster, all boozing and smoking and stuff. And we had this Art work going on which was going to be huge. And to my surprise, he joined in to help us with our art work. Trust me he was an mind blowing artist. Suddenly entire perspective towards him changed. He often spoke in one liners, but they were inspiring enough to get stuck in head forever.

Every story hides prejudices I feel. Conclusions drawn with an entire perspective not being considered. How does it feels when people don’t understand the real side of you? Mostly even if you justify, they’ll see what they want too and understand according to their perceptions only.

Even in the batman movie before you conclude the Joker was a criminal you come to know his side of the story, where he doesn’t actually seem to be wrong but legit. The habit of drawing conclusions is too quick that we forget the endless possibilities attached to it! Our entire universe is a part of a theory, it was all one theory, and now we believe it like an ultimate truth! Remember? Every story hides prejudices? Oh that was just to consider the possible boundaries of prejudices. So Interesting this small thing can get. So be alert when your thoughts are about to conclude, when they are trying to justify, just keep a silent check, are they playing the game of illusions with you?
