Do we entertain a prejudiced notion about people from other states or culture?It is human nature to have some presumptions, prejudices and biases when we meet someone new and these stay with us until we know the person more.
But what about the biases towards other cultures, other states and about different languages with which we grew up or saw on television and believed them to be true. And if there were some prejudices, were you able to unlearn such things and see the people in front without bias?
I had such prejudices about the people from Haryana after watching some shows on television in which they were often stereotyped as rude and very straightforward. But when I came to Delhi I got to know many people from Haryana who were very soft-spoken and far far away from being rude.
Have you met someone with such a preconceived notion and were you able to break away from that notion? Are you still living with some sort of presumption about some community, culture or state?
