Suicide rates and an emotionless future
The recent data released by National Crimes Records Bureau for the year 2008 shows LOVE to be one of the highest killer in India. Now you believe what i have always said, k love is the most dangerous kind of addiction. A total of 3774 suicides were commited due to love, 1912 females compared to 1862 not much significant difference. And as i said suicides due to drug addiction stands at 2730. Dekha drug usage is more safer than love. So there is no point in banning drugs. Surprisingly poverty related deaths are just 3006 with all the news about farmers dying due to economic hardships are just over rated i guess.
So out of the three basic mayas love, nasha and paisa. Love here is the most dangerous kind. Well you cant get these figures in west, love/passion related suicides will be significantly lower there. These figures are very india specific. Have to do a lot with the lower education and orthodox society. When the society becomes more open the rates will fall. Indians take love more seriously i guess, the westerners have grown over it, so will we with time.
I saw this sci-fi movie once, set in future, those people used to take this daily injection to control their emotions. And those injections were compulsory, every one taking the injection becomes devoid of any emotions basically of love, hatred, jealousy and stuff. Their Idea was to make a war free world. So they come up with that solutions to be devoid of all human emotions.
I believe we are still an evolving creature and are in constant state of evolution. This emotions have helped us a lot to get organised and be together. Basically we have come together thou there are still some issues with war and hatred, but in future those we will over come. And slowly we will become devoid of emotions, in future we will grow over this emotions, we wont be able to laugh or smile or cry, we will become too practical. We will loose all our sentiments, we wont be stupid enuf to laugh on a joke. Jokes wont trigger laughter, nor will beauty trigger a smile. I see that people dont laugh like they used to, I remember people used to laugh a lot watching movies, you seen the kind of comedy they used to have in old movies every one used to laugh a lot watching things that wont make us laugh any longer. Slowly there wont be any joke in the world that wud make us laugh.
