Reasoning and rational judgment

Dear Editor,
Our obsession for affiliation, affinities… blinded us to overlook the environment around. Competition or talent hunt in a reality show is for the best of the best but today due to the above obsessions we blindly vouch for our family, friends, clan, village, state, region & nation thereby undermining the essence of what competition is all about.
It is always good to appreciate & encourage the one participating from our village, state or region but that shouldn’t be at the cost of undermining the better off.
This obsession has reached in every aspect of our life be it in reality shows, elections. Competition should be a competition of merit & talent rather than that only for influential, popular, moneyed & muscle powered. Hopefully in the coming days, judgment, in such, will be done by reasoning & with one’s rational intuition.
Owama, Ziro
