The Other Is A Hell...! Are Really They? - Poem by jinosh velikkakathu

The other is a hell' somebody said
By quoting the celebrated french philosopher Jean Paul Sartre.
How the other becomes hell for Sartre?
Because you and I are called to be models in front of others,
That is to say when you do something,
It should be perfect so much so
The other will never get a bad example from you.

We are living in a community, therefore,
We are always asked to do only good deeds.
Meantime, what happens to me?
For me the other becomes a hell?
I cannot do all the mischievous acts,
Because the other is watching me.

On the one hand the other is not really a hell,
And on the other hand,
The other is a mystery, the other is a project.
So let us respect the other...! !
