Why do we cry? Children cry a lot. Why? Is it because of fear or loss or fear of approaching trauma? Whatever it may be we always cry in every five stages of our lifetime. It cannot be suppressed by any coercive method, it is natural to cry; verily ingrained in human nature.
Lately, we came across how Rakesh Tikait, a farmer leader, wept bitterly at the dharna site on the Ghazipur border. While replying to a query, Rakesh Tikait said that the tears were not his, those were the tears of farmers. His teary eyes acquired him a big position phenomenally. (राकेश टिकैत ने कहा, ये मेरे नहीं, किसान के आंसू थे। आपके आंसुओं ने आपको बड़ा बना दिया।)
Forthwith, our PM also cried out painfully in Parliament. Both him and Ghulam Nabi Azad wailed, cried and sobbed in the precincts of Delhi. There wasn’t a lengthy gap between their respective weeping and sobbing, for reasons known to them.
Tikait wept for the farmer’s cause under the open sky while the PM wept and continued his speech under the dome of democracy with trembling words for retiring Azad. He even wiped the flowing tears by his left hand, tried to control himself by drinking a lot of water. Political experts point out that the country has undergone a novel experience.
Was the weeping sought for the political goal through a purely natural pace? They further inquired of. Many of us have a hard time guessing about what the future might look like if our leaders commence weeping for sentimental situations time after time. There is no need to worry as weeping is considered a healthful reaction also.
If a very emotional scene has been seen in the country’s parliament, the American Senate was also transformed into a very sentiment sight with Rep Jamie Raskin and David Schoen putting their respective arguments during the debate over the start of impeachment trials against former U.S. President Donald Trump.
However, crying is more than a symptom of sadness, as situations are showing. It’s triggered by a range of feelings—from empathy and surprise to anger and grief—and unlike those butterflies that flap around invisibly when individuals are in affection, tears are a signal that others can see.
According to Frey, “Crying is not only a human response to sorrow and frustration, it’s also a healthy one.” It is a natural way to reduce the stress and if left unchecked can have negative physical effects on the body, including increased risk of cardiovascular disease and other stress-related disorders.
