Tuesday Thoughts

Do you rush all the time?

My friend, if it is so, you are poisoning yourself to death ☠

I am sorry to say this.

My apologies if you misunderstand me.

“The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.” Alan Watts

Be alive to the present and enjoy the moment my friend.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

No no….I am not talking of P mode,which is Program Mode in DSRL cameras,as a photographer you all know.

P-mode I meant… Panic Mode.

I am talking about Panic state of the world.

Now the world is full of Chaos,Panic & Fear.The reason you know pretty well,the ‘C’ word.

I am talking of ‘Panic – Buying’

Definition of panic buying

Cambridge dictionary says

‘A situation  in which many people suddenly buy as much food,fuel,etc. as they can because they are worried about something bad that may happen

Panic-buying is communicable disease

“Panic is highly contagious,especially in situations when nothing is known and everything is in flux” Stephen King

Due to corona virus scare and with travel ban,closure of borders,lockout of cities,total ban on people gathering etc panic started spreading like wild fire.

Social media is not helping in any great way,instead worsening the situation.

Social media is overfilled with photos of empty shelves in most of the shops and shopping malls.

Many shops are closed or restricting the sale of certain items that are much in demand.

What is the outcome ?

  • Empty shelves
  • Never ending long Q s
  • crowded malls,with crowds squeezing in  ( out of fear )
  • Chances of virus spreading faster because of the crowd
  • stealing
  • Scuffle and brawl

Do we have to behave this way ?

As humans,have we become dumb ? And now we have become this idiotic.

Shoppers are restricted to buy essentials not more than 5 per person in many places.

Scarcity of food items…. I can understand in times of panic,but scarcity of Toilet rolls ? And hoarding of toilet papers ?

People’s  panic buying toilet roles/papers have become regular feature in social media.I am totally lost.

Why toilet rolls ?

Why are people buying so much toilet papers ?

I guess it’s FOMO

By overbuying ….are you not contributing to the shortage and the needy one suffers ?

It reminds me of herd mentality.

Any idea why this particular item is in high demand ? I don’t know.If you know please help me understand better.

Toilet paper offers no special protection against COVID-19

Other than wiping the shit to clean your ass hole…..

I personally feel it’s absurd to buy toilet rolls since it has nothing to do with safety aspects regarding coronal virus.

How psychologists are explaining  this phenomenon ?

They say toilet roles are big in size,prominently noticeable,has long shell life,psychologically one gets satisfied having purchased big sized ones for a cheaper price.One also get a sense of satisfaction that things are under ones’s control.

According to Dimitrios Tsivrikos,lecturer in consumer psychology, toilet paper has become an ‘Icon’ of mass panic.

Uncertainty causes anxiety, Anxiety causes fear, Fear causes nervousness, Nervousness causes panic, Panic causes helplessness. Have faith in God. He will help and protect you  unknown 

Please share your views.

Thank you. Namaste  🙏🙏🙏
