The year 2017 has come up with some really bizarre and unbelievable incidents, though it's not been as bad as 2016 up until now but we can certainly count on people to make it worse for us.
Well, let's focus on one really bizarre and weird battle that has certainly been in the news across the globe: Airlines vs Passengers not Aliens vs Predators.
Two outright contrasting incidents have occurred in this short span of 2017.
In the first, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad hit an Indian Airline staffer with his slippers for god knows how many times over an issue of seat allotment. Later he was booked under Section 308 (attempt to culpable homicide) and 355 (assault or criminal force with intent to dishonor person). All the major airlines blacklisted Neta Ji from entering their crafts.
Ravindra Ji later expressed his regret over the incident in Parliament. Recently the Air-travel ban was lifted and now everything is fine as long as the news channels stop reporting it so that we can all forget this and move on to the next incident.
Now the second case comes from the United states of America. In an instance of over-booking, the staffers of the airline United Airlines asked for some passengers to volunteer to take the next flight. But somehow one passenger was chosen and was subsequently asked to get off the plane. The passenger was clearly not in the mood for volunteering so he refused. Upon hearing his contention the staffers and security guards assaulted him and dragged him out of the plane. Blood can be seen on the passenger's face.

These two incidents may have occurred due to entirely different reasons but the underlying current stems from the same generator i.e. The dearth of communication.
Somehow we are not able to communicate and convey what we feel without resorting to physical or verbal abuses. Loudness is the new normal now.
