A WORD A WEEK CHALLENGE -WORKER

“By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacation-less class.”

Anne Morrow Lindbergh quotes (American writer and aviation pioneer, 1906-2001)

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 6 – Counterintuition

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 6 – Counterintuition

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.

 

Thinking Aloud

Posted on

So you think you are a very wise woman

you let go  your children to  grow

you never interfered in their matters

you allowed them to fight their own battle

you made them tough and positive

you smile proudly on your achievements

But,

the moment you hear they are sick, suffering

all you want to do to is to hug them, cuddle them

wrap your arms around them

to hide them from all evils

you don’t want them to suffer

you want to be there always to protect them

knowing well

you will not be there forever to look after them

how love makes one weak

Or

it is your strength?          kids5

Keep high aspirations, moderate expectations, and small needs ~ William Howard Stein

Methinks,

There comes a stage or rather age in life
where aspiration, expectations, and needs
all merge into each other and you aspire,
expect and need  a world,
without hunger, poverty and sickness
a world
without boundaries, discrimination and terrorism
a world full of
love, compassion,  and friendship
a world where religion is compatibility and respect for each other
a religion which embraces every one with open heart.
Is it asking too much ?

Elegance

Elegance

is all about keeping one’s grace,style and composure

in all aspects of life

whether having success and happiness

or feeling little low and  down

or elegance is rather being like The Sun

who keeps its elegance, beauty and composure

always intact

whether rising up or whether setting down

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I may not forget you. ~ William Arthur

Haiku – Life

Life is a journey

Full of challenges and fights

Face it with courage

No shortcuts for victory

No shortcuts for victory

 

Innocence

Only children can teach us

Love without affectation

Trust without calculation

Friendship without discrimination

As their innocence knows

No artificiality and manipulation

Abhivyakti

अभिव्यक्ति - जो महसूस किया अपने आस पास उसे अपने शब्दों में व्यक्त करने का एक प्रयास एक ऐसा प्रयास जो सहज हो, ईमानदार हो...... बिना किसी बनावट के व्यक्त हो... मानों कोई नदी .... जो उद्दाम अविरल अबाध गति से उमड़ती चली जाती है. ज़िन्दगी की राह में, सुख-दुःख जो भी मिला साथ साथ बह चला, और रचता गया हर पल एक नयी अभिव्यक्ति !!
