Read Time:2 Minute, 54 Second

Before you start reading this, I want you to keep aside your ideas and opinions on any subject of debate and go through this with a neutral and balanced approach. Any sort of prejudice or hypothesis that you hold in your mind will avert you from comprehending the crux of the write up. Currently, the entire world is accosted with an unprecedented catastrophe. It is our utmost priority to keep ourselves healthy, physically as well as mentally. So release all sorts of pressures and read it with patience.
The era of digitalization certainly provides opportunities to improve the lives of people. The social media which was earlier introduced with the aim of building communication between two individuals bringing them together is now indeed creating a vacuum between those individuals. Recently, if you have noticed, whenever a matter of importance is surfaces due to some controversy or an unfortunate incident, your instagram feed gets flooded with irrelevant as well as relevant posts, write-ups and images. If you assort them carefully, you’ll find that these opinions can be classified into two groups. Same is the case in the world beyond this virtual universe, where people promote certain ideologies so sternly, that it decimates the scope of unity. These are usually two groups, that put forward extremely opposite viewpoints on a particular matter. This is called polarization. In such a case, a solution that can sate the ego or demands (as per personal preferences) can’t be easily formulated. This is because people stand poles apart. They don’t wish to mend things by mutual agreement and would rather stay stubborn.
It is contributing to the innumerable disputes and war of words in the virtual as well as the real world. This has led to the polarization among the masses which is creating a divide among people. These polarized groups are reluctant to hold a peaceful conversation. Very few of us, indeed, discern a path that balances the opinions of both the sides, considering the points of actual worth from both these groups. Posting opinions on social media platforms is so much in vogue today that people don’t even deem it necessary to check the authenticity of the data or information that they are sharing. Also, they are so engrossed into their virtual life that they forget to acknowledge that these are mere opinions.
Hatred ensues once people stop believing in the idea of unanimity. This not only afflicts our personal relationships, but also aggravates the disputes between people. I know people who don’t talk to their friends who don’t agree with their point of views on CAA. People vandalize cities to fight for justice. While people refuse to acknowledge that people of different races and different preferences can exist in a country, they also refuse to have a legitimate round of discussion.
Currently, Very few of us actually take up a path that balances the opinions of both the sides, considering the points of actual worth from both these groups. We need to view things from a neutral perspective. Instead of following a certain ideology, we must analyze the situation and then react accordingly. We must understand that our opinions might vary, and we should respect that. We shouldn’t misconstrue each other’s opinions. And lastly, a solution that balances the ideologies of both the groups can be crafted, but only when we are willing to hold peaceful deliberations over it, respecting all sorts of suggestions.
