Excellent question, Sreekumar. You have touched the roots of many social evils. I consider gossip to be the primary cause of many social evils such as abuse, slander,malign, defame, rumors etc and it leads to character assassination as well. Everything starts will gossiping...something appears to us and our brain starts thinking on unnecessary things about someone and it goes to the extend that we start believeing that what our mind drew the picture actually resembles the person about whom we are thinking & and eventually we spread it (air) and with every person adding its own flavour to it when it reaches the person (about whom it was meant) it looks to him a moutain out of a mole. There are many phychology that works behind it: 1) Every mind need raw things to think about. (Mind is a unique creation og Almight God) 2) When mind explores about someone our own perceptions gets added to that information...there is a negativity in evrybody ..now this negativity starts working ...more

To gossip about others is the easiest thing in the world. So long as the result is not a great catastrophe this can go and on the other side if it acts negatively we cannot blame ourself, it is like the story of a chasing dog between the running dog. You are perfect in that when you said jealosy which is the corner stone of all the evil minded and don\'t think an attention-diversioner. In the real life sitution, we do come across such happenings where the mightiest will always be the mightiest and the mightier might try to bewilder the scenario. It is like a cinema where the attention seeking is a novel idea to gossip around to make us laugh eventhough most of the times people forget that there is a loud cry (deep inside the heart of the wounded) to finding a place for a serenity.
