Love and Sex
Yesterday I was at friend's place for dinner. As usual we were talking about many things from twitter, to taking breaks, to brand images to MJ. Then suddenly I had to give this quote from one of the TED speeches, but then both of them are mostly non techies. So I had to take a step back. showed them these two videos.
The first one is from TED/India by Sunitha Krishnan who works for an NGO Prajwala which battles against sexual slavery and human trafficking.
they were very silent after watching this. Well even I was when I watched it first time.
Sunitha Krishnan has dedicated her life to rescuing women and children from sex slavery, a multimilion-dollar global market. In this courageous talk, she tells three powerful stories, as well as her own, and calls for a more humane approach to helping these young victims rebuild their lives.
Then I made them to watch this
Anthropologist Helen Fisher studies gender differences and the evolution of human emotions. She's best known as an expert on romantic love. This particular talk is about why do we crave love so much, even to the point that we would die for it? To learn more about our very real, very physical need for romantic love, Helen Fisher and her research team took MRIs of people in love -- and people who had just been dumped.
I guess they liked what they saw. Love and Sex are very complex. Its difficult to find just one emotion/words to define them. If pictures can speak thousand words then these two videos can speak million. I don't have anything to write, just go watch them.
