Parties, committees, commissions, frenzy, herd, congregation, mob, gang, professions, community, crowd, assembly, mass.faction, troop, band...
Humans are obsessed with forming groups. The affiation motive is so high in human beings that they form temporary groups of all kinds and intensities.
Like I tend to form groups for a myriad of reasons:
1. I always form a group with the people on the same side of traffic line, if somebody from the "other" side crosses the line then I espouse this group against the other.
2. I form a group of non-vegetarians against the vegetarians at a party
3. I even form a group against the people who use Google against the poeple who use altavista.
4. I form a group who are MBAs and a stronger group with the HCU buggers.
5. We have always been forming groups based on the place we come from and the language we speak.
6. I even form a group with the people who blog and try to convince the other group to blog as well
Thats examples enuf but what am i trying to say quoting all these examples? I donno.
I form a group with all the Indians, I form a stronger bond with all the telugus, i form an even stronger group with Hyderabadis, stronger group with HCU guys. I form a group against the whole establishment when the guys at my college or my apartment are threatened.
I was never so happy when tendulkar scored runs than when Laxman scored lots of runs
We form a part of hundreds of groups at the sametime. There is always a conflict that keeps going on. Am I more responsible to the office group or to the group called family?
Unfinished blog: reason cant think why I thought abt what I just blogged.
