I always wondered what was the purpose of inventing language. Was it that we communicate our thoughts to another human being, how we feel about ourselves, our emotions and our desires ?
Clearly, we are not doing that well anyway. We expect others to read what is inside our head.
We express anger very well by yelling at people who have nothing to do with our misery, however, we seldom express love, gratitude and kindness to people who have been kind to us.
Majority of us have learnt about our universe, technology, history and politics through our educational institutes or by reading books. Yet, we have not learnt how to communicate with another human being and show courtesy and respect.
People send lot of time complaining about others. Back stabbing about people or perhaps even laughing at others.
But, no time to inquire about another human’s well being.
I hate sound if it is not pleasant. Hence, I avoid television completely. I read about current topics on the internet.
I love to hear instrumental music. They give me a lot of peace more than any words any human can say to me.
What if we learnt to speak only when it is absolutely necessary and unavoidable ?
Or even better, just listen to someone who just wants to vent it out.
And if everyone in this world just listened, could this world be a better place to live ?
