Fallacy

‘Let’s check floor, walls and garden mom. They might have buried someone and now selling house for such a low price.

‘Don’t be a spoil sport. A perfect house in a wonderful locality, what more do you want?’Mother said.

Not satisfied I took a hammer and checked all the walls and floor for any loose spot.

No skeleton? Mother laughed.

We arranged our luggage and settled in bed after simple dinner.

In the morning mother dragged me out of the bed ‘there are two skeletons in the house.’

Where? I jumped up.

‘In our bodies’.

The Daily Post- A Bird, a plane, you

A Bird, a Plane, You!

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other

I will definitely choose the superpower to speak and understand any language because I’m not interesting to travel through time, backward or forward. Past is past and future is unknown and it’s better this way. Let future reveal itself on its own pace. Let there be some surprises.

What will I do with the ability to make any two people agree with each other if it’s not for to make whole world understand and agree with each other?

The ability to speak and understand any language seems to be very admirable and useful. I live in India where

(India has 22 official languages. According to Census of India, the total number of mother tongues spoken in India is 1652. However, only around 150 languages have a sizable speaking population. The Indian census of 1961 recognized 1,652 different languages in India (including languages not native to the subcontinent) many languages are spoken.

In my city Visakhapatnam Telugu is spoken and what a shame, I’m not able to speak and understand it. I love to read literature in their original language but have to be satisfied with translations only. Imagine what a great power I will get when speak and understand any language. I will speak to local people and  my friends in their mother tongue.

Not only in India i have many friends in other countries also. Though probably most of the people understand English, speaking to them in their own language and reading books will be a great fun.

The first language I will try to master is English, of course. Then I can write my posts like a pro.

Please, please, give me this superpower, please.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Romance

 

In a great romance, each person plays a part the other really likes.

Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life.

It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, but it is the little differences that make them interesting.

The Daily Post- The Eighth Sin

Posted on

The Daily Post- The Eighth Sin, prompt by Ben Huberman

seven cardinal sins are pridegreedlustenvygluttonywrath and sloth.

The 8th sin in my opinion is prejudice.

We all are very quick to make opinion about other people based on their color, caste and creed, religion, culture or country, without actually giving it a try to understand what they really stand for.

We start criticizing them without knowing fully their environment, difficulties they have to face and social structure of their country.
Sometimes prejudice is based on one’s experience.When someone cheats us or hurts us we take it as whole community of that person is of cheater or bad. 
We fail to understand that there may be reasons for that person to behave in faulty manner, may be his own upbringing or any cause but we can’t put label on his/her whole community.
One interesting aspect of human nature is 
“If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other causes for prejudice by noon.” ~George Aiken
Here are some quotes about prejudice to make my point clear.
“Prejudice is the child of ignorance”~ Willam Hazlitt
 
“We are each burdened with prejudice; against the poor or the rich, the smart or the slow, the gaunt or the obese. It is natural to develop prejudices. It is noble to rise above them.” ~Author Unknown
 
“Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.” ~Merry Browne
“Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart.” ~Countess of Blessington
“Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike. “~Oscar Wilde

“Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.” ~Wayne W. Dyer

“Scout,” said Atticus, “nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don’t mean anything—like snot-nose. It’s hard to explain—ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody’s favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It’s slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody.”

“You aren’t really a nigger-lover, then, are you?”

“I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody… I’m hard put, sometimes—baby, it’s never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn’t hurt you.” (11.107-109)

~ Harper Lee in’To kill a Mockingbird.’

When chitter and  meow went for  jog  

Entrapped were they in the dense fog 

They got tired

Woof they hired

And rolled on his back Like a log
