Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!
Last week saw us at yet another music concert in the city. While the musical melodies were a treat to the ear and soul, today I am not writing anything about that. It is the human attitude towards not following certain rules/instructions that I would like to question.
Unlike many recitals, this one started dot on time. At the beginning of the program, the host introduced the singers and also mentioned a few instructions for the audiences to follow. One among them, was to” Refrain from any video or audio recording of the concert”.
Well, the melodies rendered by the singers left the gathering enthralled. While I was totally immersed in the rendition, my eyes fell on a light a few rows ahead of me. Someone was recording the song. Turning to around, I found a few more people recording on their phones.
Now my question is, when something has been told beforehand, why do people not adhere to it? Do people follow rules only if there is a legal consequence attached to it? There were many children in the audiences. Children are very sharp observers. So what kind of a message were they sending to the young minds? Not only here, but at many places I have observed people blatantly disregard the rules. Be it at any gathering, public places or on the roads. Why do people find it so difficult to follow rules in general, specially in India?
Have you ever been a witness to a similar situation? Why do you think compliance to a rule is a huge challenge with people? Do share your views on this!
