Well didnt get the meanin of wat u wrote till u explained!;)
i have a different opinion..i thnk its better to stp askin oneself what went wrong n why did i do this to myself! its better to die rather than thinking bout the same thng dat gave u immense pain..!! if u stp askin urself..u dnt die..its juss that u stp blamin urself by being ignorant to the thng that tuk u to dat pnt!
lesser u thnk, lesser u ask, better u are!

It's a funny thing about blogging.. the posts you are closest to, are the ones which are least understood. I would get accolades for a rather dishonest post, but this one seemingly demands an explanation. I've been deliberately putting it off, thinking it's really for people to understand.. but maybe I somewhere made it too ambiguous..

Only meaning and sole purpose of life.. is growth. It's a continuous process.. which should continue all our lives.. in some way or the other. And in order to grow, we need to have a will.. a desire.. a longing for it. The desire to learn.. the habit of questioning.. the undying curiosity. The day you lose any of such qualities.. that will to learn. When you stop caring about whether you know things or not.. That's when you start dying.. that's when your soul stops growing..

That's all that this post meant.. We might commit many sins in life.. but none can be bigger than killing your own self.. sending your own souls to the bottomless pit of ignorance & stagnation.

For whatever reasons.. knowingly or unknowingly.. I killed the learner in me.. and that's the greatest sin I ever committed.

If you guys observed, most people who agree with the post will be men and if there are any who want to disagree, its women.

I am sorry, if am touching the poles and generalising, but that is what I have observed generally.
We men like to ask, keep questioning and if we dont we would start questioning one day, but women are different, they think that questioning or asking is a thought involving process which would waste mental resources.

And every time i tend to ask things, I get a standard answer-utna dhimak nahin lagane ka.

Irony-isnt it?

I'm sorry but I take it a bit differently...

"When you stop caring about whether you know things or not.."

You get enlightened...

Isn't it?
