I Wish to be a Child Again!
Yes, it is true when a person becomes young or old; he wishes to be a child again because of many reasons like when society is killing his dreams, or when he is in trouble. Childhood is an age always full of fun, relaxation; tension free, no duties, no responsibilities and carelessness about future. When a person faces problems and difficulties in his life then he wants to get rid of it and that’s why he wishes to be a child again. Every person in this universe is suffering due to his wishes, desires, grief sometimes from family and friends and it a part of life and nobody is wondered about his life, so we can say that this is natural phenomenon. When new born baby comes to this world, he weeps and this is natural process and when he is going back from this world, at the same time he weeps too. A person is in his childhood, he is non- serious, careless, innocent and naughty as well but when he is grown up and leaves his childhood and reaches in puberty stage, he already committed so many mistakes but when he is stepping forward in his practical life, he realizes all his mistakes that he committed in his past. Alas! Now he cannot do anything correct because time has been passed and time never stop for anyone in the universe. But when he is not succeeded in his mission then at that times he really wants to be a small child again and wants to come back where no worries, tensions, responsibilities and duties exist.

Pen is Mightier than Sword
The power of a pen is enormously larger than a sword. What a sharp edged sword can’t achieve can be achieved by the help of a minute tip of a pen. What it implies is that the power of writing is much stronger than the power of hatred, war and fighting. A war always ends in killings and has only a single directional ending – defeat, death, loss. There is no end of the tunnel when a war is there, and even if it comes, there is no light. Writing is priceless. Can we pay back for the stories told in our childhood – by parents, grandparents, teachers and elder siblings? Can we pay back for the stories read during our childhood from storybooks, comics etc. bought for a meager cost but the impression of those stories, learning gained from those stories and the legacy that is carried from generation after generation give us a return that the amount paid for buying those books seems minuscule but the return is huge. The story of one stick versus a bundle of sticks, taught us the power in unity, a collection of just a few words but providing us a lesson for life. There are so many examples of such writing we read during the childhood that stays with us till the last breath. There are so many quotes about books and those are so true – “Books are the best companion”, “Books are the treasure house of knowledge”, “and Books are the way to the Truth” and so on. We all know that those who love reading, are never alone. Books give us the freedom to think. Books make us fearless. Books are the best way to learn about the places where we can’t travel to, in person writing has built and destroyed kingdoms. Writing has created peace during wars and created wars during peace. Writing has made the whole world unite to fight against an evil. That is the power of writing. A fight can impact on two or more people, a war may impact thousands of people but a book can shake the whole world. A book can turn dark into light, slavery into freedom, dumb into speech, weak into powerful, and poor into rich and successful.

What if telepathy worked? Well before answering this question, I would like to explain the term “Telepathy” to those who don’t know what chaotic concept it really is. Telepathy is a fictional art which is thought to be a way to read minds and communicate thoughts and ideas by means other then known senses. Simply said telepathy is a way to read minds of other and knowing what they are thinking, well thank God it is fictional because if it was real, I for one would get punched often by a lot of people if they knew what my precious thoughts are about them. Just imagine your inner chaotic world displayed to the world and you can understand my point. We all have some dirty secrets and messed up desires which we hid from the whole world, there are things we can’t share with anyone not even with bestest of our friends. For that I would say that human mind is really a freak show! Don’t agree? Let me give you a few examples. There must be a time in your life when you are sitting in your college/university café and you see a guy/girl enter that you hate for no apparent reason (we all hate at least one person for no reason) and you start to wonder about some really bad and sometimes violent things from which that person could get hurt. That example doesn’t apply to you? Let me give you another one and it’s about the secret “crushes” we all had on a person in a certain point in our life, what if they knew you had a crush on them God wouldn’t it be embracing as heck? If that example doesn’t apply to you too (which is impossible by the way) but let assume another one. We all have done or thought of doing things we are now not very much proud of, what if these “things” are out and everyone would know about them? My parent’s would certainly kill me in this case scenario.
On the other hand if we could read peoples mind knew what they are hiding behind those lovely smiles and gestures believe me it would be really hurtful, this is exactly the reason a wise man once said “ignorance is a bliss”. Sometimes and in some cases not knowing is the best thing.
So if telepathy worked life would be really hard (which already is enough hard). But that is what I think. What do you think? I will leave you with this question.
