The Wonders of all that I wonder

When I was a school going kid, I was always curious about why some living organisms could fly and some could crawl, and a few of us could just walk?

There was always the inquisitiveness to know, "Oh! I wonder, why?"

Now those were not the days when all the answers to the Why would be available at the click of a button. Parents had to take us to the library, and either we go look for the answers in the encyclopedia. And with the font so small, and the lights of the library so dim, no wonder most of us had glasses by the time we were teens!

Needless to say, this tenacity has paid forward tremendously. Today, technology is changing with the wink of an eye, thanks to all those, "I wonder why" queries by our generation. This has helped mankind move forward, and sometimes make us appear a little crumbly  by our actions that are sometimes not very noble. 

Curiosity, intrusiveness is the father of all inventions.

Honestly, these days only a handful of children exhibit such behavior. More so, since they have been given the comforts of a WiFi or an internet that exploit their reasoning within themselves. All they do is type, click and voila!

The answer is found!


“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” 
― Plutarch


My two cents

We have to create curiosity in our young blood by arousing their mental inquisitiveness by not giving them what they desire, but actually trying to take them virtually on that trip such as visits to the museum, libraries or shows that exhibit the science behind a query.

Lack of time makes most of us turn their "Why's" into quick solutions.

 It's the quest for knowledge, the search for solutions, the research to problems and the thirst to quench their doubts that will make them shine in this lifetime!

Mantra for today: The quest to know the unknown is what makes this existence worthwhile!
