First of all. This is a mobile blog. I am doing this from the 4th floor of my friends’ apartment. It is actually the top of the building and the view is great. Suddenly, i started thinking about a small incident that happened today. I wanted to talk about it with someone. So, here it goes…..
I always try to be non judgmental. But, it always keeps coming back to me. I think I should practice it more often. Because, after accidentally judging someone because of their face and activities, I feel like shit when I get to know that i am wrong. I felt like this today after a long time.
I was coming to my friend’s apartment. (I usually stay there when I come to Colombo.). I took a tuk tuk from Dehiwala. The guy who was driving it had a big beard. I was in an entertainy mood that time. So, I started making small talk. I asked him a prototype question which I regret up-to now.
“Ayyalata heta ramzan neda?”
Guess what? He was a Buddhist. He was a little upset about my question. I am not here to argue why he got upset. But, look at that idiot who was in the backseat. He thought that everyone with a long beard is a Muslim.
That is what prototypes are. We shouldn’t set a prototype to people. We should see everyone with a uniqueness. Forgive me tuk tuk guy, I wont judge people by their looks. It is rude to do so. Thank god it is not a Muslim guy. I wouldn’t have learned my lesson. Don’t judge people. especially don’t judge someone based on their looks.
