With the increasing number of crime, terrorism, anti-social activities, etc, its evident that somewhere things are going wrong which is yielding in the increase of such negative activities. Everyday we read in the newspaper and see on TV about the need for imposing strict ban or restrictions in usage of illegal weapons. While watching the news about one such incident in the TV, where the government was planning to bring restrictions on carrying liquids while air-travel, I was thinking the days are not far when ppl will not be allowed to carry milk for the babies, medicinal liquids for patient, water for people with sickness and so on. Having thought this I questioned myself on how could a liquid turnout to be so dangerous where it could be used as a weapon for forced destruction??? And that triggered my pragmatic sense into thinking. Well My first question to self was what is a weapon? As per wikipedia its “A weapon is a tool used to apply or threaten to apply force for the purpose of hunting, attack or defense in combat“. I don’t really agree with this because as a definition it may be true but in reality the application of the force is from Human Being. As seen sometime back in one of the regional movies A real weapon is Human Being(Human Mind in precise). without the application of force from human being everything else becomes just substance. May it be a Gun, Axe, Bomb, missiles, etc. it needs someone to drive it and use it as a weapon. So until it gets into the hands of a human being nothing can be considered harmful, infact most of them will have absolutely no significance and eventually die with rust or decay particles.
Now accepting that a person can be a real weapon it makes us think where or how to restrict it? Its for sure that we can’t ban something like a human body/mind in action. All that we can do is create awareness, let people know the impact of misusing such a weapon, start bringing up kids with positive thoughts, etc. If we fail to do so, the day is not far where we can see people making use of anything and everything as a medium for destruction. Can you imagine a hydro-bomb made up of water which can cause major destruction? And the source could be just water, so should we put restrictions on usage of water? Start thinking as to what is the Real Weapon?????
