"Dignity is a mask we wear to hide our ignorance"
I have read history in school and I am pretty sure so many of you may have too. Getting interested in history subject is more or less an art of the teacher who is teaching you...as that teacher's tacts of teaching make one interesting and curious about what is history and to explore it further deep down to know the reality.
"A teacher affects eternity he can never tell where his influence stops" ~ Henry Adams
But more than reading true history and what is taught as history is two different aspect and I dont blame this on teacher..instead it could be the syllabus or so...
"The true aim of everyone who aspires to be a teacher should be, not to impart his own opinions, but to kindle minds" ~ Frederick W. Robertson
All I want to say is reading the true history and watching history is really a discovery in itself..!!!
I had read so many stories of world war I & II and the catostrophy that used to take place and the inhumane bloody incidents...but I could never imagine..how worst it could be...I blame it on my imagination :)...well it also depends on the upbringing too ....as you can ony think bad to a certain limit and it could be a very simple thing of hitting anybody...or at the most..killing..(since now a days we see so many things..imagination can wander..) but brutal, torturing ...inhuman killing of human beings...gosh!!! I just cant think of it...!!!
"War is organized murder and torture against our brothers" ~ Alfred Adler
Recently, I have been watching too many movies related to history...such as The Pianist :)...Dr Zhivago... & lately The Schindler's....boy this movie..at one point I felt why we people love to watch such movies..where they are torturing people and treating them like insects and worms...I think even they live a dignified life in today's world...!!!
"Dignity is like a perfume; those who use it are scarcely conscious of it"
I really .....was exhausted to watch the way Germans treated Jews. I have no sympathy for the Jews b'coz it has to be beyond sympathy. I swear...all the time I was just thinking ..thank god..I was not born at that time...I could feel the pain of those people..how...just to protect there own lives they used to hide in holes like rats...oooh!!!
I sometimes wonder how..we as civilized people treat one another...are we civilized enough to be even called one???
"The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself"
In that era also there was this guy called Schindler...who was a womanizer...money minded but still he was carrying a heart..which saved so many Jews...!!! I could see him just like a drop of water in the desert....in the mouth of a thirsty person...a drop of life...!!!!When he was saving people ..he didnt realize what he is doing until at the end when he felt...all he could was cry..thinking..he could have saved more!!!!!!!
