Blogging 101, Day : Eleven, Personal prompt: Tunnel vision
Day Eleven: Make a Prompt Personal
Today’s assignment : Publish a post based on your own, personalized take on a blogging prompt. My favorite prompt right now is:
Tunnel Vision: these two words immediately reminds me of narrow mindedness, just like retinitis pigmentosa, it’s an incurable disease, while the latter is an eye disease that eventually causes blindness to the patient with this symptom. The former plays with the mind and makes it blind.
We make up our mind about things based on generalization.
In my case when they find out I am a ‘Bengali’ they immediately associate it with the word ‘traitor’. How did this thought come to their minds?
History tells us there was a certain man named ‘Mir Jafar’ was a Bengali who jeopardized the fate of the people of his country by trading secrets. He did it because of his selfish interest. Mir Jafar was a traitor , hence all Bengalis are traitors.
It seems my being a Bengali, is a terrible thing. They will discriminate me just because of of this. It is becoming difficult for me to endure it.
I find solace thinking , I can do something which makes me happy, Blogging is one of them. Here everyone is sincere eager to help when I need it , will never ignore me because I am a Bengali.
I had the most pleasant experience a few days ago, I wrote to Michele I was unable to do Day Ten assignment, I did not understand how it can be done. I found a detailed explanation in my reply box, how to do it. It certainly made my day.
Although in my reply I thanked blogger, Azhar Youssef, yet I felt it is not enough.
I came to the conclusion, not everyone is narrow minded, there are a lot of them who are broad minded, which makes our world pretty special.
