Well ,Had not been Newton curious enough we would never have known why apple falls downwards and not upwards, Curiosity is a great thing, it has led us to reason,to know and eventually to grow.
I see curious people everywhere , meet them every now and then, offline and online.
No no, my post is not about differently curious people like Newton but generally curious people around us, who are always curious to know what is happening in others life , What are rest of the people doing ? Spying around more than intelligent services.
Some very normal questions in India –
If you are unmarried , so when are you getting married ??
If you are married, when are you giving us good news for the baby?
If you are student, when will you get your results ? Your marks?
That was the funny part, but problem arises when you start asking intimidating questions which has nothing to do with you .
You know that someone is looking for a job, why ask him about his job every time you see him ?
You know she never talks about her husband or in laws, why to ask her about them You never know what she is hiding behind her silence.
If someone shared his wedding pictures, to tell him/her
‘I thought you were already married ‘or
‘ I think I saw your wedding pictures before as well,’
until he/she tells(actually yells at) you ,‘Yes I got divorced and am married again,’
‘Oh I am sorry,’
No, he/she doesn’t need your sorry, You already did your job of hurting that person.Just be more kind, empathetic and sensitive.You never have to be sorry then.
Sending messages to someone you never talked in years just to know something about him/her that you heard from someone aka confirming the rumors??
Asking questions starting with ”If you don’t mind ?? or ending up with a hehehe..” If you think he/she will mind,Why to ask? and It is not funny even with a ‘hehehe’ !
Why to become so insensitive just to feed your curiosity?
( Disclaimer : It is not for anyone specific.Many of us do get curious and might end up hurting others unintentionally , For everyone who reads it, It is ‘you’ asking your inner self and not Me as writer 😀 !)
We are all guilty of doing it sometimes to feed our curiosities, Just think for a while, before asking a personal question to someone .
Could it hurt some one? if Yes! better not ask it.
Do I need this information, What do I have to do with this information about him/her ? If your answer is nothing , better not ask it.
