Here comes another Wednesday and the letter C needs befriending, to start a little conversation with it.
For letter C, my mind mapping steered me to choose the word ‘Care’. Care subsumes under its sweet canopy so many warm emotions and insights, which are integral to our wholesome existence on this earth. The term ‘Care’ acts as a root, when specific suffixes form a part of its structure. For example, words like caring, careful, caregiver, carefree and careless are generated. All of them relate semantically to the word care in some way or the other.
However, I‘ll limit myself to dwell on the concept of ‘Care’ as it singly encompasses a whole gamut of feelings and emotions. They constitute robust passions of love, kindness, altruism, sympathy, generosity and many more.
When you care, it is implicit that you possess all the life-promoting qualities. The primary one is the constancy of character. A caring person has a positive orientation and is devoid of any type of maliciousness or envy. Rather he endeavors to help others to succeed. He is inspirational as well as aspirational and rubs the same attitude on those who come in his contact.
His dealings with others are rational and his belief in equality and righteousness is unfaltering like a rock. Without expecting any credit, he contributes to societal responsibilities with genuine commitment. Caring people are noble and do their utmost to uplift the less privileged. The motto “service before self” becomes the mainstay of their personality.
A caring teacher is a sensitive human being. Being judgmental is inimical to his nature. He believes in encouraging his students to excel in whichever field they choose.
On the other hand, a caring parent would instill a value system based on morality and goodwill in his children.
A caring child would understand the difference of outlook of his parents from his own and will learn to accept it and respect it.
Those who care are sympathetic listeners and perform a valuable service to the community by building trust and dependability.
Caring also means ignoring the idiosyncrasies and flaws of others and giving precedence only to the goodness of the individuals.
The world will be a much better place, if frictions and conflicts, which have vitiated the life of the law-abiding citizens, are replaced by a caring and loving attitude towards humanity.
Let's not forget that caring also means that we should remain steadfast in our principled points of view.
Friends,welcome here as always!
