Tantrum

Was in Chennai yesterday on work. Got back by the last flight.

Witnessed 3 incidents of very hyper passengers. Felt bad for them- venting their frustration that way in public - all futile effort and even if they were in the right, they came across as tantrum throwing spoilt brats!

Young children are almost expected to throw tantrums / have meltdowns once in a while but rolling on the ground/ hitting head on the floor / wall seem unacceptable even from them.

There must be a way of being peaceful and getting one's point across even when wronged. Gandhi was a very powerful man.

Gandhiji is more and more relevant in this day and age.

True that.. but sometimes I dont understand whats wrong with people.. Why do they behave this way?? Isnt it so much easier to remain calm in any situation.. And indeed.. whats the worst that can happen?? I guess.. if you always have an alternate route for the worst.. then everything else seems so much easier..
