I have been asked many a time, as to why i take on to blogging? Especially when i know that nothing substantially new was being said which would edify the reader.
I have only one answer, it is INKY GARRULITY. I have an urge to say something which i presume had been discovered by me. When the discovery had been made by me there is an irrepressible urge in me to say it, and the blog is one place where i could say what i feel. At times when i go thru my old entries i wonder if i had written it at all!
It is therefore a journal of my thoughts at that particular moment.
I am reminded of a story narrated to me:
A young boy seated at the window of a moving train was looking through the window and telling his father, “Dad, see that is a tree. ” after some time as the train was still moving he told his father, “See dad, that is a hill.” After some time he pointed to a waterfront and said , “Dad that is a lake.” The dad was responding and saying ‘yes’ every time his son pointed to such inane things like these. The co-passengers in the meanwhile had felt sympathetic towards the father and thought that the father had to put up with a moron like that. So one of them said, while the boy went to the toilet thus : WHY DON’T U TAKE HIM TO A SCHOOL FOR SPASTICS AND MAY BE HE WOULD GET BETTER.
The father heard his co-passenger’s advice and with absolute calm said: MY SON HAD BEEN BLIND SINCE CHILD BIRTH AND HE HAD RECENTLY GOT A TRANSPLANT AND WHENEVER HE IS EXPOSED TO A VISUAL EXPERIENCE OF THE CONCEPT UNDERSTOOD EARLIER, HE POINTS AND TELLS ME. THAT IS ALL AND HE IS BRILLIANT IN HIS STUDIES.
The co-passengers were ashamed at jumping to such conclusion without giving the benefit of doubt to other possibilities. Likewise, my INKY GARRULITY is merely like the newly acquired sight of the boy, who was identifying sensually the concepts learnt by him without sight.
INKY GARRULITY – this is in print but…………..be tolerant……. i may have my reasons too!
