Flaunt Philosophy

What is the idea behind Flunting  ? Image source Google

via Daily Prompt: Flaunt

Is flaunting good or bad ?

How flaunting is enacted by humans and other Gods creations ?

It is said that various creatures of God flaunt the beauty in their body to attract mates .That is perfectly OK.

But in humans ?

Whatever you flaunt…..it is a bit depressing to others,since human brain always carves for something better and others may feel inferior , leading  to jealousy  and totally destroying the inner peace.

Instead I feel one should be modest.

Remember flaunting attracts more enemies than friends.

Donkey Worship

untitled (1 of 1)

Donkey Worship

Usually the words ‘Donkey” “Ass” are used in a derogatory way ( Dumb ass,Jackass etc meaning people who are stupid or of very low intelligence ), even parading the donkeys during the times of Protests ( i don’t know about other countries but in India, it is a common occurrence). May be a kind of public humiliation.I do not know  why should Donkey be referred  as a stupid creature,when it is said to be an intelligent creature. I think it is the usual dominant human trait  to do injustice to the  donkey .

The other day I was surprised to come across a hung photo frame of two donkeys with Flower Garland,  at the entrance point in one of the shops.The flower indicates that Donkey is being worshiped ,daily.The local language in the photo mentions that ” Have a look at the Donkeys…. and Good fortune follows ” So I realized it is a good Omen to see Donkey face in the morning before one ventures into the routine tasks.So I was glad Donkeys are given due respect,they deserve.

As I googled I learnt a new term ONOLATRY which means Donkey worshiping,used in ancient times.

I learnt that ‘Sheetala Ashtami’ (March-April) celebrated in Rajasthan ( North Indian State) when woman folks worship the Donkey,for well being of children and people.Goddess Sheetala is said to be Goddess of Smallpox and Goddess Sheetala’s Photo frame along with a broom and water filled pot are  kept on the Donkey.Why the Donkey is chosen for this purpose…I am not sure.May be friends from Rajasthan can enrich us with better understanding

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 !!

Old age is far more than white hair,wrinkles,the feeling that it’s too late,and the game is finished,that the stage belongs to the rising generations.The true evil is not the weakening of the body,but the indifference of the soul. ‘Andre Maurois’

When do you say A person is ‘Old’ ?

Is there any criterion ? What is your definition of old age ?

Any one is happy/unhappy being referred as ‘Senior citizen’ ?Does criteria differs from country to country?

I don’t  have ready answers.May be you have an answer.So let me know.My point here is irrespective of the age,why senior people are looked down and not given the respect they deserve?

Also why old people ( I mean who can afford ) are busy dying the hair,undergoing cosmetic surgery etc ? One can always age gracefully ! Daniel Klein ( Travels with Epicurus 2012) advises slowing down,enjoying play and focusing on relationship.
