The Enchantment of Elicit

A man is a social animal.  He wants to belong somewhere- to some social group or the other…. Once he is a part of some group, he elicits some response or the other from the group members.

A pat on the back, an appreciating glance, a verbal appreciation, a ‘like’on the Facebook account, a ‘like’ on the WordPress blog, a ‘like’ on Instagram makes us happy, doesn’t it?  A blogger , especially a nouveau blogger checks innumerable times to find whether he has received any notification from WordPress!!!😃.   But, what about disagreeing comments, opposition from the members? Not many are prepared for it. A person, who is truly a good sportsman, will receive them without any irritation, anger, sadness. If he thinks rationally and realizes that the opposing remark or opinion is right in its place, it will be encouraging for both – the receiver and giver…

I had read in a book about ‘ Organization Business ‘  that ‘ It is healthy to have conflicts .’ Conflict resolution is vital. It is more important for all the group members to focus on ‘ What is right ‘ than on ‘ Who is right ‘.

All said and done, appreciation is a natural blusher for the recipient ! That encourages and motivates us to move ahead!


The Enchantment of Elicit

The precise primp

She came early from office , today. She had a quick tea and biscuits followed by a quick refreshing shower. She was getting ready for her colleague’s wedding reception.

She wore an embroidered , sequined peacock blue salwar kameez. To complement the dress, she wore silver bangles, silver jhumkas ( hanging ear rings), silver pendant. She wore light make up. She combed her hair. She looked at her reflection in the mirror. It was pretty. She blushed. She took her purse and gift. She moved out of the room.

She looked at the mirror in the passage. She thought of doing the last minute primp. The pendant was hiding behind the dupatta. She adjusted it. Everything seemed to be precise. But she still felt that something was a miss. She looked at her forehead. She spotted the missing spot! She removed a matching silver coloured oval shaped bindiya from the bindiya album and stuck it on her forehead. She was not satisfied with the position. It was slanting!!! She kept adjusting and readjusting. She tested the bindiya’s patience and sticking capacity! Much to the relief of the tiny bindiya, another hand held it and perfectly placed it on her forehead….She was delighted to be with him unexpectedly. He had arrived one day prior to his schedule. Now, the picture in the mirror was perfect !!!😃😄
