The Simplest THING

Blue coloured Question Mark
What is the simplest thing one can do? is it asking questions or answering them. Asking question it is, all one needs to do is to ask about something he is sure about or knows nothing about. It seems simple enough, and also it gives you great pleasure and satisfaction, making you the lead guy and the one on top of everyone else. And we all know that the ones who take advantage and make a career out of asking questions the most are news reporters. It seems that they makes up some answers in advance first and then asks the questions such that they can feed on their victims. And all they need for this is little charm and a cunning voice, no need to be experts on the subject because no one asks them back. But is asking questions that simple? To ask a question you need to know how to ask them first. You can't just shoot the questions to someone, first you need to study the person answering closely, observe his mannerism, hand jesters, voice modulation and most importantly have to plan and prepare a series of relevant questions, and then only it will yield you some answers. Generally questions can be classified into eight different types

  1. Open question - require an expansive answer or response. 
  2. Closed question - asked to get yes/no answer. 
  3. Probing question - asked to get more details on an already   asked question. 
  4. Leading question - require answering the answer suggested by the question.
  5. Hypothetical question - asked to get answer on a possible course of action. 
  6. Multiple question - two or more questions asked, each requiring an answer.
  7. Heavily Prefaced question - gives so many details that it’s difficult to determine the question.

     Understanding these and choosing the right one is the most difficult part of asking questions because if you are not talented or not prepared well enough to do so, you will not get a positive fruit which you wanted from the process. So in my opinion asking questions is as much difficult as answering them.

Energy - An OPINION

Energy all around the world

Energy In my opinion is always misinterpreted as God. Have you studied the law of conservation of energy, it states that ‘Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed’, did you wonder why? Let us consider the entire definitions man has come up with for god and put the same for energy, it will fit more perfectly for energy than for god. Even our whole body is made up of energy, we are a living energy shell, that's why it's said in the Vedas "Aham Brahmasmi"-the universe is within me- it's the simplest explanation our great ancestors could give us. Then why has this it been outclassed by god as the creator of this universe. It’s because it has so many forms and it's not easy for a common man to consider it as a whole entity that he created a concept which took all the truth about energy into its own and gave it a sole form called God. There is only one god, we often say, it’s because people found it more convenient for them to pray to one god than to thousand many. In earlier stages of human history all natural elements were considered as god, yes they are supreme but they are only as supreme as you and me. The entire universe is made up of energy and its energy that is made into god for our own convenience.

What Makes Me HAPPY

Smiling face drawn on a thumb

I remember the times when I started using Orkut and started a group naming it ‘Happy’, the most positive word I could think of. It’s not a magic word that makes me happy by saying it whenever I am sad, but more of a word that gives me hope for the future. I was longing for long to write something positive, something that will make the people reading this post ‘happy’, smile a bit and think about what makes them happy too. It seems that the things that makes me happy the most are both silly and simple, silly things like closely watching the lead of a pencil as it breaks while I trace a circle over and over again, tightly hugging a tree and talking to it when no one’s watching, splashing water in the bucket few times before bath, lying on the terrace and counting the stars, lying on a beach and digging in both my hands deep into the loose sand listening to the sound of splashing waves, and doing more and more silly things in the silliest way possible. A smiling Child's face, bright sun on a rainy day and drizzle on a hot sunny day filling the air with the fragrance of dry soil, full family laughter on a Sunday night dinner, my love cuddling to my hand and walking beside me silently, sudden smell of my favorite food filling my nostrils and like that the simplest things that makes me happy goes on too. There are bigger and more complicated things that can make me happy but why go for such if simple silly things that I adore the most can make me more happy. Humans love simplicity and that’s the thing that gives him happiness the most, after all I am a human too.
