The urge to communicate

It is perhaps the greatest dilemmas of mankind. Man is always looking for someone to talk. The reason I am writing this, is that I want to communicate. But I have hardly any idea what.

You ask me how I am, or the question patented for me these days 'How is your preparation going' I will always give the same answer. I won't ever say I am bad, nor will I say that my preparation is not OK. I do not blame the person who asks me. I know it is because of their urge to communicate.

The dilemma comes when we have this urge and we don't know what to talk. If the person you are talking to is from fairer sex, then it is a different ball game. But for our normal considerations, let's take the case of naïve, harmless, aimless communicator, the communicator of my type. I know if you are reading this, you belong to this category.

At times there is guilt. When we think about our aim in life, our worth and time being precious, this communication looks futile. But take it from me it is a noble quality, to talk, to gossip. No one gave me a penny for my 'precious' time but I have derived eternal bliss from many pointless discussions. Puritans would like to know its advantage but I say who cares. I have enough time in life to waste in useless talks.

I know this blog hardly makes a sense but I cannot resist my urge :-)

Anurag, I found your post very thoughtful and honest.

As far is my personal opinion is concerned it is quite in line with yours. Communications we consider, worthless or full of cliche´s and social niceties are inseperable part of our lives and are important.

It is just that we may find such discussions boring at times just because we are too tired to answer the same question again and again. But just imgine a situation when nobody asks you anything about you or your life. To Communicate is an important part of being alive.

Well said! Look forward to read more of your ideas.

It is sort of feeling that w are not alone

By formal communication we try to probe a person, if he is our type or not...

and perhaps man is too habitual to communicate and not doing it brings a sense of unasinss
