Violence Personified

The culture of violence portrayed and magnified in the media, though impressive, is a ridicule. Violence is not a panacea. The ruthlessness of violence is seldom anything more than a vicious cycle that lands us into the spheres of hatred, revenge, guilt and ultimately fear. Violence is in many forms; some aimed at the outside and some aimed within. Of all those acts of violence, instigated violence through ahimsa seems to be double-edged as it plunders us both from outside and within as well. Alas! where can a line be drawn?!

Its ridiculous to portray and magnify the violence in media...
Its destructive from both the sides, 1st - The victim side gets more angry by seeing and tries to do the same. 2nd - the people who have done those acts feel encouraged and their group or community resorts to more such measures.
