Yippie!! I got an award.

The Humane Award


Rules of the game:

The award is given for being "Humane as being characterized by kindness, mercy, or compassion; marked by an emphasis on humanistic values and concerns."

You are also requested to

1. Accept and post the award on your blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received it.
3. Pass the award to 5 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment.
4. Let them know they’ve been chosen for this award.

Today, I got an unusual award. The humane award, as the name suggest is given for being humane. According to Wikipedia:

" An award is something given to a person or a group of people to recognize excellence in a certain field; a certificate of excellence. "

So this means, I am excellent in the feild of being humane.

But am I really? I don't think so.

Lets examine the three essential qualities of being humane as described by the award:

Kindness: I don't give alms, I hate beggars and I kill cockroaches with my slippers. So am I kind? You decide.

Mercy: Does mercy mean I have to forgive the bastards who kill innocent people for religious fanaticism? Thank you, but I am not merciful. I believe these fuckers should be dealt with the an-eye-for-an-eye rule. Forgive my french.

Compassion: I don't feel for the guys being killed in Afganistan. I will never join a biking trip to showcase the plight of the children dying in Africa. And I will definitely never join any charity dinner where you drink a-thousand-rupee-per-glass-of-wine to discuss the atrocities of child labour.

But then, I do help blind people write out application forms, give way of passage to people crossing the streets when I drive and give the child on the street a packet of biscuits. I told ya. I am a bundle of conflicting and confusing actions.

Do I accept the award? Heck I do. Come one come all. I accept all the goddamn awards of this world.

You can say I am a selfish, popularity-seeker. I won't mind.

Thanks a ton Shas for this award.

Now for the 5 other blogs worthy of this achievement, I would like to give away the awards to:

  1. Neeraj
  2. Deepak
  3. Mustafa
  4. Tys
  5. Maurya
Lazy bum that I am, I would like them to come and collect the award from me. One other reason for this is, I dunno how much humane these guys are or whether their conscience will allow them to accept the award. But then its on their conscience, isn't it?

Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone that actually understands what they are talking about online.

You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More and more people need to look at this and understand this side
of your story. I can't believe you're not more popular
since you most certainly have the gift.
