The Daily Post Discover Challenge : Perspective

For this week’s Discover Challenge, let’s focus on perspective: share a post, in whatever style or medium (textual, visual, or something else entirely), that tackles the question of point of view.

You could experiment with a new perspective — write as if you were someone else, take a photo that highlights your unique position — or reflect about the vantage point you currently occupy (literally or figuratively). Or take the topic in a totally different direction: whatever you do, just be unabashed in your deliverance.

“It is said we can understand a person only when we step into their shoes and look at life from their perspective.”

Two different people

Two different ways of thinking,

Same age group

Or a different one,

From  same part of the world

Or from different places

All go to make what we are,

They make for different perspectives.

What we look at is one and the same

But their different angles

And so many different perspectives

Make them seem so different.

We see what we want to see

And each one of us

With different perspectives

Are correct in our own way.

We just have to remember

That different perspectives

Are as correct as ours,

And this understanding

Would make this world

A better and more peaceful place.

But human nature

Being what it is

Does not allow

For different perspectives

To exist with mutual understanding.

That is a sad but true fact

In any part of the world

In any age.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
