I chose Humanities. I love my class. We know our stuff. We discuss reality. We want to change our society. I like that. I don’t hate the Science class. The thing is, people think Science students are smart. I believe that Humanities students know what’s happening around them. They are aware. Science students often want to rebel. They know they can’t. They don’t have the guts. Commerce students are rebels. They like rebel against anything and everything. The Humanities students are revolutionaries. They have apt reasons to support their argument. Commerce students have a lot of free time. Science students are wannabe rebels. They think, teenage rebellion is a rad thing. Revolutionaries plan out their rebellion. And, they have good causea behind them. Rebels just rebel. Their rebellion can be unreasonable. This is the difference between rebels and revolutionaries.
According to a survey held by ActionAid UK, 79 percent of women have faced some public harassment in India. The stats are kind of shocking. This might include my mother, my aunts, my cousins, and me. Hell yeah, all the women in my family.
Due to this, women are being caged under the garb of safety. Why are women trapped, when they are the ones getting violated? Every citizen has the Freedom of Movement, yet women are told not to go to certain places. Don’t go there. Don’t wear this. Don’t go out after 8. Now tell me. Why does a woman of 25 need a curfew? She needs to be independent at this age. She’s not a teenager anymore. Unknown men? Well, according to a research, 82 percent of women are raped by men they know.
Also, I think, everybody deserves protection-both men and women. Yet, “protection” is always used for women. When a young boy cries out “rape”, nobody cares. Why? Because he’s not a girl. I watched a touching Buzzfeed video about the traumas of a male rape victim, who found his captor on Facebook. Men are human beings too. Everybody, regardless of gender, needs to learn to be humane.
(THIS IS TODAY’S DAILY POST WRITING PROMPT)
Singing regularly can keep your voice younger. This is a health tip I read on TIME magazine. I’m a good singer. However, people consider me more as a writer than a singer. I have auditioned, and been rejected. I was also part of a choir once in my life. And, now I’m in a brass band. Yes, I play the trumpet.
Talking about singing, let me take first generation kpop idol, Bada into consideration. During the IMF Financial Crisis in Korea, when most people lost their houses and filed for bankruptcy, young Bada had to live on the streets. She, then, auditioned for SM Entertainment, which I have mentioned earlier in one of my posts. In 1996, she debuted as a member of the legendary girl group, S.E.S. Then, we have BoA, who has been gaining popularity in the US (if you’re from the US and don’t know her, it’s okay. You’re not living under a rock). Young Kwon Boa was scouted as a trainee by SM. Her parents didn’t want her to train, but Boa’s determination and talent moved them. In 2000, at the age of 13, she debuted as a solo artiste. Today, she’s one of the most respected people in the Korean entertainment industry.
I think, that people who can sing can heal the world. I believe that Beyonce can heal the world. It doesn’t matter, if you’re tone-deaf. Taemin of SHINee (Korean boy band) was also tone-deaf and was a terrible singer. Today, he’s known for his improved vocals.
Do you wanna be a trainee? I want to. I want to explore the feeling.
Have you auditioned for a Korean entertainment company? Comment.
After a long hiatus, because of board exams, I’m back.
I’m back with new hope and evaluation anxiety, because my results are gonna be released.
Although, I have good news. I’m going to be interviewed by Young Germany, a segment from the Deutschland Magazin again.
I had been interviewed previously at Menschen Bewegen 2016.
