COMPARING QUALITY PRODUCTION IS FUTILE

Few weeks ago, my friend, Ibk, was designing her Disha page. While she did that, she had the page of a role model we both shared as guide. After she was done, she showed it me to review. I saw a bit of word tardiness and I pointed it out. In her defense, she replied that it was the same way our role model did hers.

LETTER TO MY SON

The day love would find me
In the eyes of my son
Is the day I would shame milk

Silence will not be golden the day you come
Everyone will need you to cry!
Oh my baby! Sing the song of tears
Tell us the stories of foetal fears
That you had growing within years!

Dear young man,

Two things can be right at the same time. I say again, two things; two views (opinions/people) can be right at the same time. Difference does not mean wrong. People have different backgrounds, with different experiences. Hence, it is normal we respond to situations differently.

With this in mind, the next best thing is to appreciate this difference. Understand that not everyone is out to get you!
