“Everybody gets so much information all day long they lose their common sense.”— Gertrude Stein
Do you agree?
I agree with the above statement and it’s true we forget to use our common sense and eventually lose it. We do not give importance to our thinking because someone out there has all the answers, we do not value our common sense we begin to doubt ourselves.
Having said that I will be the first one to admit some information we get through media and different ads teach us things we are not aware of. It does not necessarily mean we should follow anything or everything.
Tell us about a time when you should have helped someone but you didn’t.
I do remember someone I know wanted me to help her with some of the translations I’ve done of Tagore’s work, actually she wanted to have them for her son who was working as a story teller somewhere outside North America. I felt I didn’t want her to have them because I wasn’t sure what she intended to do with them.
This is one I can remember,I always do help when I’m asked, I met a new resident in our town she wanted to learn how to make “Ras Gullah”(cheese balls in Syrup) it’s a dessert famous in Bangladesh, I went to her house and showed her how it’s made, whether she tried or not I don’t know.
