Human being vs Being human
What is Human Being ?
Scientists call us Homo sapiens,a member of the Animal Kingdom,however we are fortunate and never addressed by a fellow human being as an animal.Human being is a complex matter, and nobody is able to figure it out.
May be a specialized animal,which can think,talk,express,and has bones and flesh.
So what ? Other animals also can do these things,talk in their language,can communicate, have bones and flesh too .
May be we are the only animals that Laugh & Weep ! May be we are unique animal with ?? conscious . May be we have upright Stance etc.etc.
What is being Human ?
Being Human has a long definition One is easily tempted to define being human as one who is sensible to others pain,who is kind,compassionate,caring.helpful,devotional,merciful,not war mongering,,ethical, always on righteous path,generous,free from anger,jealousy,Oh! let me take a breath.You can further add etc.etc. All these good characters are supposed to be shown on the fellow Human beings.
So if a person has all the above qualities can we safely address this person as Being Human ?
I don’t think so and I feel that being human,no longer can be tagged with these qualities,but one should go beyond, I mean we should stretch the definition to the one who takes care of preserving Nature from being destroyed, and takes care of other living creatures( you name it…it’s there ) of God.
Being Being Human,also means to take care of the Nature,Nature in turn takes care of you
Some intelligent Human being even coined the term ‘Humane Killing’. It is said that by stunning the animal before killing is automatically Humane ( bad reputation for being Human ), since the animal suffers less in this method.Killing is killing and how can one justify ‘less suffering’. Suffering is suffering and nothing less or more in it.
Why can’t we Being Human,show the same kindness to animals what we supposed to show to other human beings ??
How nice and kind if we behalve differently towards animals ?
