Wild Man

Man is not very different from animals. He has a lot in common with them and mimics most of them on a daily basis. There are numerous characters on God’s good earth that can be fairly compared with man. Let’s look at a few bad qualities man has adopted from animals, insects, birds and later have a look at the good qualities.

Bad qualities

 Here are some bad qualities: There are men who resemble a two-faced amphisbaena; slithering snakes disappearing into woods; lazy sloth; pestering bugs; tail-wagging dogs; color-changing chameleons; large-mouthed crocodiles devouring the flesh along with bones as in cash and valuables; fire-spewing dragons, always spewing insults; reputation-denting termites; wily foxes; loan sharks; web-spinning spiders who create controversies for people; flesh-eating moths; ravenous wolves hunting in packs; chattering monkeys; headstrong bulls and a lot more.

Fairly Good qualities

Some of the good qualities: Singing nightingales; coochie cooing lovebirds; peace-loving doves; faithful dogs; indignant lions and a lot more.

You can see that man is no different. He is at God’s good humour and very close to animals. The thing that is not compatible with them and him is socializing. He is a social animal.

Sharing and Caring

Many people in the world have very different tastes. Something that looks good to one as private, passes as not so private to the other. Many individuals who are not a people’s person, have inhibitions regarding the sharing of their belongings. They have a large subset of things labeled personal and are in no way interested to share them with their partners.

While others share everything with them, these people are very reclusive to this idea. They won’t part with things such as clothes, flash drives, favourite mugs, etc. But, this is in stark opposition to their fellowmen, who regard things more gravely personal such as dentures, toothbrushes, spectacles and etal as not worth sharing.

The former people mostly share things with a large part of their compatriots, just to keep themselves in their good books. While, they may be in their good books, the liberal attitude takes a backseat among their close family. Imagine, who wants to share ‘personal’ belongings with their kin, only to find later that they are lost by the borrower. The liberal friend of the borrower is hated for this.

The people with this mindset wherein there are no inhibitions in sharing, just want to please their friends and are dependent on them for the sake of fun. More the people they acquaint with, more is the fun and frolic expected. This is the very base of relationships prevalent in the society. But, company of friends should be kept after a lot of deliberation.

No one wants to have their secrets revealed in public because of a sour friendship. Do they?
