Coz life comes with a Copyright Tag.. July 19, 2011Posted by Akriti Bahal in Uncategorized.
Plagiarism. A rather strong term though, but fits in fine. The unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one’s original work. Nah! let’s go with it being an intense term only, it is.
But, what about the plagiarism of life? That keeps happening with almost all of us each moment, without we even realising it. What about when a (fairly intelligent) friend copies your answer in an examination and you are accused to have cheated. Or when you share your secret thoughts with a close one, just to find out that they have been published to the world. Or when you find someone trying to portray to be just you, in every little thing that you do or have thought to do, trying to fit into your shoes at each step. Is it fair? ( Yea, I agree some of us would feel kinda high about it, after all someone is copying you but c’mon, be my apprentice then!) But, go find your own interest dude, is the only thing that most of us wish to say but, do we ever manage to say it, only because he’s a close one? I guess you know the answer, why. Well, moving on, what about when we are trespassed or eve teased, then does any of us (girls) come forward? Now, why do I find a No here when there’s not even a close one involved here? Maybe we’re just too
panicked terrified of the consequences (and the questions) that we may have to face, not only from the trespasser or the eve teaser, but also from the rest of the people around.
Then what about us? Are we always meant to keep mum, just to save ourselves from the consequences and keep taking all the injustice happening around? I think, having cold feet is the cause of all problems, if we come forward and express ourselves then who knows, we might even end up being an inspiration to someone.
You need to come forward, ‘coz taking all the unjust crap is just not what you deserve.
