Things without names....


That big tree full of golden yellow flowers in front of the old house near the right bent of the road is yet to be ‘known’. It is better not to become a ‘known’ thing. Is ‘knowing’ just process of associating with some name? Let the tree remain free from all names. A name is often like a cage. Like the frame of a painting it ends all the other possibilities that big tree have got. MIP try to see that ‘ fascinating beauty’ seen in distance, in front of the old house near the right bent of the road without the help of any name.

ur blog is really interesting i must say n i found dis post particularly interesting:) (n wt makes it all d more interesting is dat no1 has commented on ;-)

cumin bk2d piece,i believe that being 'known' is nt just bou name, though name is an important aspect. u cant deny its importance coz it gives a sense of identity. a name does not limit rather it opens up new possibilities which can be explored.
however its true dat name alone cannot define something/sm1 bt atleast it gives a starting point...

anyways! overall a really nice bog.. looking fwd2more such interesting stuff:)
plz feel free to refute my comments.(i hope its not 2long;);)
n thx4commenting :)

Yes, name definitely is only the starting point.The problem is that our brain develops a sense of "numbness" by general words.That was the real point of the post.How does "numbness"creep in to the most sensitive parts of our brains?Without sensitivity brain cannot sense "that wonderful feeling of balance", we are used to call beauty.
i only expected very few readers for this post.Thanx a lot for the caring you have given to the writing.
In literature we can only invent "new" words to keep that sensitivity alive...

Yes.thats so truly I believe in........A relation when named gets its boundaries, defines its limitations and the two people making it undoubtedly have to follow it....
Its so wierd, I totally appreciate

It was only today that I asked one of my friends on the lunch, "whats the name of this dish?" And he asked me back-" does everything have to be known by a name?" And there started a conversation on similar lines. Your post I definitely agree with it. name is needed, no doubt, to know a thing or some one but it doesn't stop at that

this is certainly very interesting blog must say..

starting from anything and everything we need to have names.. true for ppl we sometimes have to give names.. but then.. you find things more free without any names given.. and then it might end up complex..

so you have to give it a name after all...

People think, with a name its an identity. But it puts u forever in a nutshell where people claim you this is what u are and your background. Freedom in name exists by not calling names but even a hi/ hey gives a close relationship.
Does that make sense?
