The Daily Nash-on

a mindstream from just another statistic…

This day started on a most uneasy note, but I had not expected it to be so determinative. A few hours later, it is clear. The long period of smooth riding has ended, things are no longer the same.

Once again, some things must be learnt and taught the hard way. And I learnt today that even the bonds that one thinks are strongest , must be tested. A person’s credibility is always earned. It is never something one can expect to recieve on account of the bonds you share. A late realisation, but when life wants to teach you something, it makes sure you get the point. The number of incidents in the past weeks that have shown me this are most unusual.

Of course,the eternal marketing and PR fact has also smacked me in the face. People do not want to hear the truth. It does not matter if you are right, people want to hear what they like to hear, what gives them a ray of hope however illogical or foolish that may be.

Excuse me for being a stickler for fact and reality and having no reason to hope where there isn’t one. And yes, I realise that my intolerance is very unreasonable.

So be it then…Like all things, I will walk away from this with a lesson, and find some minor justification of my intolerance in the words of George Bernard Shaw :

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
