    TOUGH TALK

    How many ways are there to classify a person? Read on….
    If a man speaks too much,
    He is talkative.
    If he talks too less,
    He is reserved.
    If he spends too much,
    He is a spendthrift.
    If he spends too little,
    He is a miser.
    If he advances too much,
    He is wayward
    If he lags behind,
    He is laggard
    If he insists too much,
    He is obstinate
    If he insists too little,
    He is fickle
    If he is accommodating,
    He makes himself cheep
    If he remains stiff,
    He is proud.
    So it is too difficult to satisfy all.

    Oh yeah! It is true. It shows the mentality of the people who are not satisfied with the way others behave and they want to change them. This reminds me of the story we know.
    An old man and small boy were walking with a donkey to do some trade in a nearby village. After their work they are walking home. It is a long way.
    When they were walking with the donkey, people who saw them- told them-Why to walk with the donkey around. Hop on to it. So they did the same.
    after some time, another set of people saw them and told them that this is outrageous. why torture the donkey. So these guys go down. After some time another group saw them and they told the guys that why make an elderly person walk like that. So the elderly person got on the donkey. After sometime, another set of people saw them and were pity on the small boy and asked the elderly person why you are making the small boy walk. So the boy got on the donkey. After sometime ...... This goes on like that. I think this story reveals that you cannot satisfy anybody.
    To reveal the mentality of the people our forefathers had lot of proverbs and short stories to understand them.

    Hi Sriniketan,
    You had given the correct example by quoting the story.
    Really it is difficult to please all people. Each ones mentality differs.
    Love,
    Pushpavalli

    Dear Mrs. Pushpavalli, Nice poem revealing the true identity of people. Vazhnthalum Yesum, Thazhnthalum Yesum vaiyagam idhu thanada. That is world and we should take things in the right spirit always and continue with our duties to keep the ball rolling.

    thanks and regards,

    sujatha
