Green eyes and my instant dislike

I have known many people (and some of them on EC itself) who have some prejudice against a few people from certain places. Like people using "Madrasi" or "Gulti" in a way which is not so pleasant. I always used to wonder why educated people hold those kinds of prejudice.

This morning I came across a guy with green eyes. I took an instant dislike to him. In the past I have known a guy with similar eye shade and he hurt me real bad; but its been over a decade now. All of a sudden I have seen some one else with those eyes and I could not understand why I took dislike to a stranger, even before he uttered 'hello'. I am not sure how to overcome this or why I even hold the bitterness. I wonder if I am any different from people who call me a madrasi in a not-so-pleasant-way.

Did you experience anything similar at any point? Of course I am not talking about people who dislike us, 'Madrasis'.

Sorry yaar I always use the word hate,its really strong ,I think repulsion is the exact word.
The other day I saw a dark person with light grey or almost white eyes,first I thought he must be blind.

Is there a reason why you hate green and blue eyed people?

Re: Green eyes and my instant dislike

There was this boy in my school senior to me and was a prefect and he used to bully other children,punish them for no good reason and would later give out a cruel laughter and maybe my subconcious mind termed all odd coloured eyed people as evil.
I hope you noticed that dark brown and black eyed are common

I like eyes that are orangishly burgundy...any other eye colour and I have an instant dislike of people...

and generally as soon as I see a gulti or a madraasi, I get this severe allergy where my palms become hairy and my armpitts start dropping snowflakes...

other than that I am generally fine with most people...did I understand your question correctly?

Colored eyes is rare and stands outs. If by chance you know some one...and he/she behaviors good/bad....it sticks in your mind.

Blue and colored eyes do not look good on old people. Saw this old female at the restaurant with blue eyes....looked scary (aish's future)

Re: Green eyes and my instant dislike

After spending a year and a half in Delhi, i started hating all Delhiites (i.e every one who looked or sounded like he/she was from Dillika) . Have got over that now. Now, it is reserved for those who drive Piaggio APEs or similar vehicles in Hyd. They drive slowly right on the centre of the road.

Re: Green eyes and my instant dislike

Traditionally light eyes are not seen as nice looking in India till recently, I think in most Indian languages it is called the equivalent of `cats eyes`. Of course it is normal to develop a dislike, irrational though it may be, for people who resemble person/s who hv hurt us in any way.

Just for a minute assuming you are telling the truth, why do you dislike people with anyother color of eyes?

Sunny...the eyes were just an example. I wanted to know if anyone have developed a strong dislike for the entire lot just because of one particular person/trait.

This is what I am talking about. So, I am not the only odd one out when disliking the entire lot irrationally .

Re: Green eyes and my instant dislike

I like green/blue/grey eyes in so far they are on fair skin (light brown to pinkish/white/red complexion). On dark skin, the same eyes look pretty evil

Re: Green eyes and my instant dislike

I used to dislike light eyes until i got colored lenses.
I think it must have been pure and honest jealousy.
