Rumour (Fake News) or Puke News (Thought For The Day)

It was a quiet cohesive village. People of many religions and castes lived there as brothers. "Goku" belonged to a religion (or caste). "Maku" belonged to another religion (or caste). Maku owned the shop and he was short tempered. That day,  Goku came to Magu's shop to buy some things.A small argument was in sales. At the end of the argument, Magu beat Goku.  Assaulted Koku  quietly came into the house and sat down. The mind was overwhelmed. He was eager for revenge. Realizing that he alone did not have the strength to retaliate, thinking that social media was the right weapon, in which Goku falsely spread the rumor that Magu spoke disparagingly about his religion (or caste). Within 24 hours of being sent, rumors of one, two, four, and a hundred spread differently. At the end it was finished with rioting. In the village that used to be quiet, people today live in fear of riots.

The fake news or rumors are spread without knowing the fact that an individual’s hatred and vengeance is the main cause for any racial, religious and caste riots taking place in the world today.

We share them instantly with others before we realize or know the actual truth in each news spread. We eat the rumor (vomit) that one person has eaten and forwarded to us and the same we are puking it on to the next person(vomit). We are always busy spending time with others on social media and telephone calls for vain speech and gossip. We despise those who speak and write about God. We ignore the messages about God and spiritual thoughts.  But we expect everything from God.  How big selfish we are!

"To discern the truth in every thing, by whomsoever spoken, is wisdom. "- (Thirukkural 423)

"Whoever practices evil pays attention to wicked speech, and the liar listens to malicious talk" -(Proverbs 17:4)

"The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips. Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart." - (Proverbs 18:7-8)
