Subject: Right versus Values
You are wasting your time. You talk of human rights, but let me ask you what
human rights? Ask the beggar in the street, what does he think of human
rights? He will give you a stupid answer. No, it is not only me, even you
will agree that the answer is stupid. He will tell you to free him first of
all from being chased by the policeman. This is an irony of life.
Here is a beggar, a man in the street, for whose rights you have been
fighting all your life. And, what is he asking for? He is not asking you to
provide him with a decent job, a decent life. He is asking you very crudely,
“Allow me to beg freely”.
The human rights pundits should come out of their air conditioned European
homes and walk the dirty lanes of third world countries.
No, the people are not interested in their multi-million dollar projects, in
their big talks and programs. They are simply asking you to allow them to
beg freely. These are the people you have been fighting for! Shame on them
and sham one you!
You have much to do. With your potential, you can achieve anything.
Don’t talk of human rights; talk of human values first. Make the beggars in
the third-world countries realize their values first.
If a person does not know what he is worth, what his value is, then his
understanding of rights will be so infulenced. He will come up with crazy
ideas, crazy answers: “Free me from the policeman”, “Allow me to beg freely”
– are these reasonable answers? But then, you deserve such silly answers.
Your approach in the first place is wrong. You are putting the cart before
the bullock. Ask a silly question, get a silly answer. No, I don’t pity you.
So, begin with values – human values. If you do that, you may not even have
to talk of rights anymore. A man of values knows his rights. In fact, a man
of value is a man of quality. He is confident in himself, he will demand no
more. Indeed he may not even demand for his own rights. A man of value will
not go unrecognized. Without his asking for it, the world will recognize
him. So, the need to deman rights will not even arise.
No, you don’t have to agree with me. I may not be talking sense, but you are
not talking sense either.
