Field

“It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life” Elizabeth Kenny

Have you ever walked inside a field?

“No walk is lovelier than the walk you make inside a field!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

While taking this photo, I struggled hard to get a shot of the head of at least one nearby sheep, but then sheep is sheep!

These creatures of God were busy enjoying their meal and their heads were hidden due to well-grown grass.

Are humans anyway different from Sheep?

How true the following quote!

“We’re a nation of sheep. If you go out and look up at the sky, people around you will start looking up at the sky” Alan Abel

You must have come across similar situations.

What about ‘Herd Behaviour’ of humans?

Herd behaviour is seen in the animals. Here animals try to escape the danger.

Sadly humans are copying the same but in a different but destructive way.

True. Humans do exhibit herd behaviour.

It’s seen in large scale demonstrations, strikes, religious gatherings and recently we noticed in football tournaments.

When a situation is ripe for herd behaviour, people lose their ability of judgment and starts vandalising things along with the rest of the group. 

It’s interesting to note that the herd doesn’t need a leader.

Someone jokingly said our herd mentality is well known on Instagram since many ‘follow’ like sheep blindly.

Because humans are herd animals, easily fall prey to consumerism.

Any lessons?

“When you follow the herd… you are bound to step in shit. Define your own life. Follow your own path”  Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
