DP Daily Prompt: The sincerest form of flattery

My answer to this is I’d write a post about an author in my style,even if it sounds too plain. I thought about favorite authors,I am not feeling the urge to use their technique. I wish to use mine to see what I can come up with.

I consider Tagore my favorite author more than any one else,yet I am not sure I’d like to adopt his style to write a post. I feel better choosing an author  I know personally,  who has a lot of potential.

I have learned lot more from him than even Tagore or Iqbal or Shakespeare. Flattery when it’s sincere goes a long way to help anyone. It’s all about helping a fellow human being to reach their  potential.

One of the distinctive feature of this individual is, he is very smart but humble. It’s good to be humble,but taken too far it might work against oneself. While I like to adopt some of the characteristics,I have reservation about being too humble.

I consider humility  a plus point if it doesn’t interfere with my work. Sometimes I may portray myself as a pushover if I am too humble.

I’ll conclude by saying,I’d like to be nice,generous,humble as long as people do not take advantage of me.

  4. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this. I think Iqbal points a lot to potential – in a person – that often goes unnoticed or dismissed.

    All good wishes,
