                                                                          YOU PEOPLE!!  HATS OFF!!!

People! It’s a gathering everybody knows of two or more persons meeting at a place and at a fixed time. So people gather to form groups, clubs, committees, society, organisation, association, sanghs, chambers, institutions, trusts etc; etc. They are formed with their own constitutions for service to the society in general, it may involve money or not, monetary benefits or not. It is solely in the interest of one another or in the interest of the community or the citizens. To start with, money may not be the first criteria but slowly it might take its toll and turn the whole purpose to deviate, but still the objectives may remain the same. Whatsoever, when seen, people from such groups or associations, their involvement and participation is very interesting and noteworthy. It is a great cause and commitment to so many or rather it should be to all, whosoever is in the system of this group.

Sometimes, as time passes by, the purpose of building the organisation fades. It is most of the time a talk of the indifferences faced among the persons. It might be a terrible shock of the disagreements. It may even affect the health of the persons involved. It may even turn out to be a nightmare to some. It may also be the cause for Blood Pressures and Heart problems or the likes.

In the past more than three decades of involvement in social circles, clubs, communities, sanghs and the like; I am inspired to write these few lines to throw light upon the type of people of various characters and the sorts of behavioural patterns they exhibit.

If this proves to be beneficial to those who read; I will myself pat on my back.

They are there and their behaviour is as such to be keenly observed and to be pondered.

I give here below the type of people who are there in the organisations, social clubs and societies. I categorize them below as such.

The Stalwarts

These are the people who are in the organisation since its inception and are like the founder fathers. They are the ones who have built the organisation, who have devoted their time and money for that. They are normally elders and are experienced.

The Leaders

These are the people who are present office bearers and the persons who lead the organisation in the present times. They are the people who are also well experienced, their contribution to the organisation is alarming; this they would have done in the recent past.

The Other Members

These are the bunch of people who are mixed; they are old and young, experienced and inexperienced, new and old to the organisation. They have a very indifferent attitude towards the organisation. They are the people who cause the set back and are also the major source in the success of the group. They have the capacity to create disharmony, disorder and disillusionment.

All of these people above have their own experience, mentality and attachment towards the organisation. They all come from various backgrounds, lifestyles, education etc;

Now, running the organisation with all these people of different characters is Havoc. This everybody is bound to know, but unfortunately many do not even attempt to know about it. They care a hell. So that’s why it becomes hell.

Hell is not some were up in the sky, it’s in the organisation down below on earth; let me quote very few familiar happenings or say, hints to create hell:

Inactive Participation

Non Cooperation

Always wanting to get some post without working for it

Greedy of Praise

Greedy of sitting on the dais

Greedy of speaking on the mike

Greedy for Publicity

Attracting others for no reason

No Attendance

Pulling Legs

Not allowing others to achieve the goal

Attending once in a while and acting big

Incapability to Digest ones Success

Incapability to Appreciate and Comment


Not understanding ones stand in the organisation

Ear Biting

Always Complaining



Disregard towards the hierarchy

Lack of Understanding

Lack Co Ordination

Lack of Motivation

Ill Communication

Acting very big as if the only one holding the mantle


No care for the leadership

Group ism





Meddle unnecessarily

No Trust in what others are doing

All these can happen in all places where people gather, perhaps all over the world. It’s nothing new on this earth, because human beings are all made of the same stuff.

These states of affairs are very commonly found in Educational Institutions, Religious Trusts, Social Clubs and also in Political circles.

You can add innumerable such instances and occurrences. Finding the cause, tackling them properly and sorting them out; is intelligence. Life has to be lived intelligently and this message has to be spread among all the people involved.

Examine now in which of the category and behavioural pattern you belong. Match and reckon with the pattern and think for yourself there isn’t any necessity of consulting another. Bring the Ego in front of you and have a chat with it, very soon there comes an answer. The answer is for you and for you only.

Be in the association or if it’s getting to be overriding you, shun it and get away. Do not ever think that it or they require you, you are there because of your pleasure and attachment, have the satisfaction that you have contributed your might to it, so it is enough and enough is enough, that’s all. It is better to be far away than to get involved. It is better to have peace of mind than to get disturbed. There are many other things that one can do and there are so many places where the world wants YOU. Explore the possibilities. Find the Path. You will be sure to get it.

    You nailed it! Strangely, last time we had a major event, only two of us carried the load; a couple showed up later on. I understood, since it was during the weekday, but I was hoping more of the officers would participate, even after work. So your post is amazing.
    Speaking of that, I have to check my email for the next meeting! LOL Thank you again for your much appreciated contribution on my blog.

    I liked the way you liked it.
    Some posts which are so important are left unread of many bloggers.
    I, most times go see their older posts.

    You make a lot of excellent points. I can see why you would tire of being a part of groups and organizations, especially being the leaders of some. It can be very time consuming and it you’re doing all the giving you eventually run out of stuff to give for that group or organization. Everything runs it’s course, some things stick and others go. You were meant to be a part of something for a while, contribute what you can and then move forward when the time comes. I understand now! Makes perfect sense. Thanks Shiva!
