When there is no speech…

Image Courtesy : Redbubble During this pandemic, everyone has to wear face masks. There is no doubt about that. But a fascinating part is some masks carry some messages. When I went to market a few days ago, I was observing a person who wore a mask on his face which had a message “silence please”. Though the message was not appropriate to that place, it attracted me well, and the paradoxical thing was, he was removing the mask very often in order to communicate to somebody. Now it is a little tough to recognize some person even they are extremely devoted to us since they are wearing a mask. Even somebody meets, they are unable to exchange words because … Continue reading When there is no speech…

Fake and Negative vs Real and Positive

Image Courtesy : IMDb Many of us watch the news on TV or read the news on paper to be acquainted with what is happening around the world. Some read news and do not comment on that. Some have their opinion on that news and get involved in argument or debate. There is nothing is wrong in arguing or debating but before that, we should substantiate whether we argue on true news or fake news. Fake News Hope you aware that there is fake news prevailing everywhere. In present days, when the news has been telecast, we need to have a fact check before it is distributed or discussed as it is going to be spread easily to others. But … Continue reading Fake and Negative vs Real and Positive

What is productivity?

Image Courtesy : Free Vector Art & Graphics What is productivity? If you think, it is about working without taking a break is pronounced productivity. That’s wrong, and in this way, it cannot be improved. Many people are working beyond their time. Some people work even on Sundays. I called one of my friends on a Sunday and enquired if we could meet. He said he was getting ready for his office. This information is not unusual for me because I have noticed some people went to work on Sundays. But that may be for one or two Sundays. There was no mandate for them to go on … Continue reading What is productivity?

The Disease of Underestimation

Image Courtesy : Shrink For The Shy Guy My friend and I were sitting at a restaurant near our house. After a few minutes, a person came and sat in front of us as there was a seat available and, immediately he ordered something. We were waiting eagerly, to have something very delicious. My friend started talking about the past and present. Meanwhile, the waiter delivered burgers to the other person who was sitting in front of us. Whenever he was devouring a piece, he made a big slurp which disturbed us a lot. I did … Continue reading The Disease of Underestimation

Everyday Expression #22

If you want to test the depth of a river, you must leap into the water. You cannot stand on the bank and measure. Similarly, we have to mingle with a person if we want to express our opinion on him. Otherwise, it is not appropriate to judge a person on our own conjectures. ©  2020 Murali
