Peep or Peek ??

Peeping

It’s fun to peek into other people’s world & see how they go about doing things.                         ‘Norah Jones’

In the above photo not just one,but two people are seemed to be curious.

Kids being curious I can understand.Children learn things only by being curious.

And adults peeping ?

May be it is a kind of Thrill & human trait to be ‘curious’ about what others are up to !! And  can one can take it as a norm ?

But do you enjoy doing this ?

The habit of peeping into somebody’s affair….can one express as ‘disgusting’ or just ignore it ?

Probably it brings,gossips with toppings and some excitement resulting in rumors !

Are we not obsessed with the lives of others ?

It is said this habit is more prevalent in women.

Or you think it’s because idle brain,which is the culprit.And one derives demonic pleasure.

Nothing wrong being inquisitive ,after all we descended from monkeys

Being inquisitive is OK if it relates to our well-being,but unfortunately we tend to be inquisitive for wrong reasons.

And we become extremely happy for checking others problems,rather than taking care of our own problems!

“Most of our problems will be solved ,if we focus on what is happening in our life rather than peeping into other’s life”   Misbah Abu Obeida Khan

And coming to the English Language…which word is correct to use ? Peek or Peep ?

Thank you

Shhh…I’m hiding from the stupid people

Hide & Seek (2)

Through out the world young children love playing  ‘hide & seek’ . I always wonder how  & why   kids get excited,when they escape the glance of their parents or friends.

Hide & seek

May be the kid wants to explore the world independently,may be for the thrill of being alone,may be for the satisfaction that able, to fool around the friends.

It is an adult version of ‘Peek-a-boo’

The philosophy,what I think is,hiding is a kind of tension where the child is wondering whether  he may be found at all and then once he is found by parents or friends…then it results in excitement  and thus the combination of tension and excitement bring in thrill and  feeling of achievement by both the players.

Wish I get back my childhood !!
