Sometimes in the front of me Sometimes it was behind Sometimes on the left Sometimes on the right Sometimes it was within me And sometimes just stood outside I thought I was bigger ard better Far superior and tall And it was merely my shadow Destined to follow me after all. But what it did to me Was not at all fair As I was no more And it was still lying there ( Me and my inflated ego)
Counterintutition is a seemingly simple concept– it represents a truth that is contrary to common sense or the expectations of intuition.
Some examples of counterintuitive situations: You burn calories when you’re sleeping, flailing around is exactly the wrong thing to do when drowning, and beautifully speckled dart frogs can be poisonous to the touch.
Now my take on it- I have come across so many counterintuitive phrases, it surprises me that even after being proved wrong they are still in use. Here is a list-
1- Practice makes a man perfect but no body is perfect.
2- Men are more intelligent, powerful, entrepreneur etc. etc. etc. than women, and we all know the truth.
3- Men are distracted by how a woman dress , especially in some of Asian countries they are forced to put veils, otherwise they are so pure and innocent.
4- Women are weaker sex whereas , everybody knows who needs all those medicines.
5- Crocodile’s tears , they are not at all unhappy while eating but shed tears.
6- People with different views or different species can not get along
There are so many about food or exercises, I can go on and on but I think I should make it small and simple.
We were poles apart
Destined to come together
In the name of God love and friendship
We took leap of Faith
Sometimes our paths were dark
Sometimes they were bright
Our compassion and compatibility
Made us bond together
And God set everything right
” What metal your heart is made of
If not melts with others plight
Instead of helping those
Who are suffering
In the name of religion
You choose to fight “

Christmas around the corner,
Sweet smell of cake hovering around.
Old couple , confined in a room
Holding hands , comforting each other
Remembering golden days of
Partying with children and relatives.
Now, all busy with their life.
Forlorn, depression setting in, still
Trying to count their blessings,
A little hope in their heart,
A knock on the door.
When there is unrest or apprehension
When there is ,in life a lot of tension
Take a break,
Take a break, and introspect.
When you overworked and very tired
When you are stuck in an old routine
Take a break,
Take a break and get good rest.
When dissatisfaction,and no fun in life
You think life is taking you for a ride
Take a break,
Take a break and meditate.
( My advice ” Take a Break ” was taken, very seriously and literally by my son.)
Cannot break the bond of
Love and friendship
Renewal is on the card
Forgive and forget
All the differences
And party hard
Why it is that
foolish people are compared with donkeys
and not with
cow, zebra , giraffe or monkeys
the answer is simple
as you may say
both don’t know
when to keep mum and when to bray.
( No offense intended for donkeys, they are lovely and hard-working . They are just stubborn, single-minded and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want, especially when someone indicates “No, you can’t have this. “)
