In the above photo, you can notice dilatation (getting larger) of the pupil (Pupil is the opening centre of your eye) and the intensity of the opening is directly related to your ’emotional response’.

Is ’emotional response’ same for men and women? I don’t know.

Now coming back to my topic…

Miss.South Carolina Teen USA 2007, Ms.Upton, answered a question during ‘Miss Teen USA’ pageant.


Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?”

Upton responded:


“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, uh, people out there in our nation don’t have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future. For our children.”


Did you make out any thing from her answer?

I am sure you struggled to decipher.

Why does such a thing happen?

I feel it’s because one gets overwhelmed with joy. This is something to do with emotional aspect of the human being.It can affect one’s ability to think and act rationally. Emotional overwhelm can happen both during happy or sad situations.

What is your opinion?

“Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.” Pauli coelho

Did you ever come across such overwhelming situations personally and can you share any such experience?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
