Insane, Mad, Crazy or deranged who are these people? where do they come from? Do they have the right to live among us? Well if you ask me, yes they do have the right as much as we do to live in our society.
 
Why do we tend to treat them differently? They too have two legs two hands and two eyes just like us yet we see them differently.
 
Today I was riding to my work thinking what are my responsibilities for the day and what is the first thing I need to finish once I reach my office. On my way, the signal turned red and I had to stop right behind the front lines of the signal with a clear view up ahead where people from the parallel roads drove past us as it was green signal for them.
 
Slowly and quietly a women just walked in the middle of all this who looked all weird with her hair completely messed up and wearing a shirt and jeans which was partly torn here and there while she scratched her hair once in a while which messed up her hair even more.
 
She just came out of no where right to the center of the signal blocking the road. People started to notice her and while some where puzzled at what was happening some didn't care at all.
 
Now, she looked at the passing vehicles in front and started to wave her hands as if to give directions to the drivers just like a traffic police who controls and directs a heavy traffic block.
 
I was watching her all the while as the red light was still on but was amazed to see her enthusiastic to handle a traffic so well with her condition and also started to question myself 'What might have gone wrong for her to be this way?'.
 
The people around me stared all the while laughing and teasing her for being crazy but never tried to think it the other way around.
 
Why was she the way she was? What made her to be lost in her own world? Have you guys ever thought this way, I guess not. Many people now a days gain pleasure just by hurting others feelings. They think of bringing a positive change in themselves by discriminating others around them. But you'll never get happiness by stealing others happiness rather you get it by sharing your happiness and sorrows with others.
 
Just think what does the word 'MAD' stands for? Well I really don't know but if I have to elaborate the full form as per my idea I guess we can call it 'Mentally Affected by Depression'.
 
Yes, just take the example of the above situation. Do you think she was born that way, she was MAD from her birth, well I don't think so. I believe she was as normal before as we are but an incident or circumstances in her life lead to her being depressed so strongly that slowly but eventually she turned to the way she is right now.
 
Even the society she lived in might have had its impact on her for her to finally give up and she got lost in her own thoughts. All she needed maybe was for people to care her but what she got was rejection and criticism topped with taunts and sarcasm.
 
I was really upset that day and thought why do people think of themselves highly but never feel the same for others around them? Why we care for our loved ones more and why not for others? why have we blind folded our feelings to others? why can't we see the suffering of our loved ones but laugh at others?
 
Don't you think we are the ones who are insane who laugh instead of treating these helpless miserable people normally with love and care so that they can have a normal life and there by come out of their depression and lead a beautiful life ahead that they once had before.
 
Once you let go of the Insanity inside you, you'll get to see that she was not insane but ill and every illness can be treated with love and care and the medicines we give them has just a small part in it.
 
Only Love and respect towards one another is a foundation that can hold this world together like a cement holding a building and without it the building that is a world will fall apart.
 
So Love, Respect and build a better foundation of this world for the next generation to follow.
