Teaching Story - Speak Up
by Life Positive
“I don’t ever want to use that lift,” replied Megha, biting her lips.“Hey, is something the matter?” queried Ranjini. She knew something was amiss.
“I was once stopped from going inside because I was with Sudha,” said Megha, grimly. Sudha was Megha’s maid’s daughter and her dear friend.“Don’t you think it is better to ask the authorities to stop discriminating instead of just not using the lift?” said Ananda, who was keenly observing both of them. “Unfortunately, most people don’t realise how hurtful their actions are. It is only by pointing this out to them that it can be corrected.” “Will you come with me?” asked Megha.
“If I need to,” replied Ananda. “You can handle it yourself, you know. Remember, Megha, you will face many such situations in life. The sooner you learn to speak out, the better it is.”“Will you try doing it?” “Okay,” Megha nodded firmly, “First I will attempt to convince them myself.”
Apply it: Don’t be just an observer when you see something wrong happening. Make your protest heard.
