Being objective

We all read and comment and present our perspective on different issues that happen around us. Our thoughts about these things may no doubt reflect the truth but the way they are presented also reflect our feelings towards it. A good and very humourous example is that of Jai describing Veeru to mausiji (from movie Sholay). In spite of all the vices that Veeru has, Jai's advocacy for Veeru reflects his friendship.

In matters of opinion it is very difficult to be objective. And though objectivity may be a sought after thing but in real world it does not exist. All opinions even the most politically correct ones represent the bias of the commenter. Extending this further, I would say that being politically correct is not something that I like most. It seems to be pretentious and misleading. I prefer people who can express their opinion openly though with a humane touch and love and compassion towards others.

An opinion is never honest is it? It is, by it's very nature, an attempt by the opinionated to impose or project their point of view as superior to those held by the others. (As, no doubt, is this opinion by this individual commenting here! :P )
And then again, how can one put across an opinion without rubbing people off the wrong way? That would need diplomacy and political correctness would it not?

(Dont mind me, I'm just high on 3 cups of coffee...and you know how I can be after I've had coffee!)

((Missed reading your posts...why aren't you writing much these days?))
