YOU ARE THE AUTHOR


Lum's space

Just last evening, I overheard some one speaking on his mobile telephone while I was riding home in a bus: You are the author…..

It sets me thinking deeply. Yes, indeed! Everyone of us is an author even though we do not realize it. Don’t you know that each of us is writing our own autobiography every day!

A book has to be bought and read by an individual. Our daily lives are read by people whom we interact with: friends and foes. It reaches a wider audience than a book! So, how does each of our autobiography like? Each day can be a chapter of our life! How do your friends and others view you as they read your autobiography? What kind of legacy are we leaving behind ?

Well, these are some of the thoughts that come across my mind as I write this post. I know you…

Q AND A WITH A DIFFERENCE….MONKEYS SEE, MONKEYS DO!


Lum's space

What can we understand and deduce from this short compound or complex sentence: “Monkeys see, monkeys do!”? Indeed, some wise men must have been studying the characteristics of monkeys and then come to this conclusion!

But, are we monkeys? No! Definitely not! But some people believe that we are the descendants of one species of monkeys! Then, they must be the real descendants, not me. I still believe that we are not being evolved from other animal species but from Man. (Whether God created Man is another argument!) I don’t know what your opinion is, but whatever it is, I respect your belief.

Scientists and biologists come to the conclusion by studying the bones and skeletal structures of these two animals – Man and Monkey. When they observe each characteristics they classified them into similarities and differences. Then by reading through the whole long list, they draw the conclusion that…

Q AND A WITH A DIFFEREMCE….HOW CAN ONE BE LOST?


Lum's space

Just not to disappoint the group of students around me, I’ll give another attempt to produce some Q AND A with a difference.

In my last post, I did ask the question : How does one know that he is lost?

I always remember that whenever we organized an  orienteering course for our students many years ago, we always ask them this classic question. We received a variety of response from our students. The first rule of the thumb is when you are lost, try to find out where you are. When you know where you are, you are not lost!

Put on your thinking caps before attempting the following questions:

16. This is a riddle: I’m so dry that you can’t squeeze a drop of water out of me. Yet, I’m so cold that you can’t hold me in your hand. I can disappear in front of you without a trace. What am…

THE CAIN AND ABLE STREAK


Lum's space

When all men are brothers,
Why do we still want to dominate one another?
Is this the inherited trait of Cain and Able,
That brothers must murder each other?
Can competition be done on an even slate?
Why must we want to dominate,
In sports, race, religion and power?
Even within the same homogeneous groups,
Hatred and mistrust feed its troops,
Overnight a new coup has taken over,
And old leaders have to take cover!
Politicians have this one fear:
“If I miss killing you, then my end is near!”
Is this earth in such an ugly state,
That Hate has replaced Love instead?

OUR LIFE IS TETHERED BY AN UNSEEN STRING


Lum's space

A bird flying high in the sky,
Saw a kite flying by,

“How can you fly without wings and feathers?”

“Oh I can because I am made of paper!”

“Why are you tethered by a string?
Your freedom is curbed don’t you think?”

“What freedom do you think you have?
When you too have an unseen string attached?”

BIRDS HAVE FREEDOM TO FLY AND ROAM WHERE THEY LIKE,
NONE CAN STOP THEM IN THEIR FLIGHT!

A KITE HAS LIMITED FREEDOM AS LONG AS ITS LEASH,
IT CAN ALSO FLY WHEREVER IT WISHES,

BOTH THEIR LIVES ARE CONTROLLED BY STRINGS ATTACHED,
THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE FREEDOM LIKE THE REST!
