Is It civilised?..........

Today the issue I would like to discuss is people are usually seen behaving as animals in parties specially marriage parties. They wait till the announcement is made food and then the marriage party becomes a place of bull fight. It will not be wrong to say that some of them just come to have food only.
Not only this, but many other things show that food is the primary need for all of us.
See, for example in the west when somebody goes to someone's house and the host is doing some serious office work or something else like that, then the guest goes away promising to come later. But if the host is having meals then the guest comes and sits inside and even eats with the host. But in India we see its completely opposite.
This shows how much concerned we are about food. And I don't think, this much concern about food is the behaviour of intellectuals. So much concern about food only shows that how much animal we are in our behaviour.

Paul mentioned about such people; for whom "their god is their stomach". (Philippians 3:19)

This is the nature of a fallen mankind whose mind is on earthly things.

@ GNBearer
wat u said is completely true but the post mentions intellectuality as the gud thing even that is worldly but not animal.

Aneesh said...

Haha, Saw a lot like these in marriage parties :)
can't compare western people with here, can u imagine a good feast that we get in a marriage party at home, for most of the people it won't happen and that's the rush and mostly if we miss the first chance, then the items to eat will also become less for the next chance... LOL

@ aneesh
ye I guess u r rite that we can't mould ourselves as westeners but a suitable sol. is to stop self service. As they don't know how to do justice with it.
