TO SPEAK OR NOT

"Kabhi sochta hoon... ki mein kuch kahoon... kabhi sochta hoon... ki mein chup rahoon..."
often the above lines reflect my state of mind i.e. to speak or not, to teach or not, to scold or not and even to post or not...
during college days after numerous endless heated debates(mostly on psychological and social issues) the conclusion was never to again enter into such discussions... the reason being nobody seems to listen or change ... but still i keep going on the same path... is it because i can't keep quiet when i feel that i know the truth?... initially this was the reason ... but seeing that people dont need the truth, the reason to speak up was gone... more importantly i felt that what is truth for me, what is right for me it is not the same for others owing to differences in their upbringing, their present environment, their strengths and weaknesses... may be my perception of world, of people doesnt applies to them ... my truth, my understanding can even harm them...
but somewhere in the middle i realised that to be quiet is not the way... i have learnt so much from hearing others, reading others, ... each of my interaction with people, knowing their view point coupled with my own personal experiences helped me in arriving at whatever understanding i have today... i feel that whatever i say and now a days write also (thanks to blogworld) it is going to be a part of database of some...may be a part of their thinking also... and more importantly to arrive at truth they shud know my viewpoint also becoz i am a part of the truth...

rest of this post is for vishnupriya (being tagged by him long back... he might have forgotten himself :-))
have to do the following:
A. from your 23rd post (or closest), post the fifth sentence online.
B. post a 55 word story

A. Closest post is current one.:-)
"but still i keep going on the same path."

B. 55 word story (do tell me if it makes sense)

"Again I forgot. She wept yesterday for hours". As he entered he saw little angel in dress she was asking since last week."Daddy, i love u..." she said while being in his arms. Amazingly he looked towards his wife. Her nod and smile made him feel like in heaven.

That's the best short story i've read so far, it said it all.

Great read!

We speak or write and do our part. Often we leave impressions, more often we don't but that shouldn't deter us from doing out bit.

soumya said...

RandomThoughts: thanks for encouragement...

Soumyadip: u r right... but at times i fear that i may harm ppl...

stand up for what you feel. nothing can beat the sense of satisfaction when one owns up and speaks it out.

no buddy, i haven't forgotten, how can i? i thought you didn't want to take the tag. but not only you have, but have done a good job out of it! good work.

Shikha said...

i think one must always express their opinion. either way, ppl will get hurt. one can't make a difference without trying.

Sometimes I speak because I'm on a roll. Sometimes because I am expected to say something. Sometimes because better will come out of it. But sometimes, I try to keep quiet if what I say will make things worse.

"may be my perception of world, of people doesnt applies to them ... my truth, my understanding can even harm them..."

Because of this thought it becomes very hard to express ur feelings.And sometimes it seems better write it down or wait for a rite person who can understand and discuss it rather than blabbering in frnt of others.
On a whole a nice post.

Vishnupriya: u r right... many times not expressing also gives guilt feeling...
thanks...

shikha: if diff is for worse then it doesnt seems worth trying...

Flickering Flame: so many sometimes :-) ... all have come or still some "sometimes" remaining...
i also do the same but with confusion ...

soumya said...

dreamz_verity: u r right... writing it down does seems to help...

chennai pages; u r right... we all go thru this and the conclusion also seems to be same but the reasons seems diff for all...

Shruti T A said...

All have come. :) I do that without confusion, but once it's done I go red in the face.

Hi!!
i also used to have such discussions with my friends...and eveybody involved would just be trying to convince others of his/her point of view on the issue under discussion..but its not important to convince others...its better to just exchange ideas..no use trying to change the way someone thinks..

"Whatever you say or whatever yo uwrite may or maynot mean much for others,but for a few it might have an impact,and more than anyone else,It will enhance your way to life:)
Chup rehke jo ehsaas dil ke samaj sakthe ho unhe kabhi aksharon mein dhaal kar dekho,Kitne rang uthar aathe hain:)
