…KNOWLEDGE…


We all are familiar with this word. We always use this word in our day to day life. I don’t think that there is any day when we don’t use or come across this word. This word “knowledge” is of utmost importance in everyone’s life.  We also use this word in sarcastic manner whenever required. We also tease others sometimes with a joke or in serious manner that “how much knowledge do you posses???”  When we say like this or ask such type of questions to others do we ever realize what knowledge do we posses? Do we have the right to judge others on the basis of their knowledge? Do we know everything? Or we are having so much over confidence that we always try to demoralize others by throwing such kind of questions???

 

   Before i go to answer the above raised questions let me put one more question in line.

       WHAT IS A KNOWLEDGE?

How many know the answer to this question? I know this is one of the shit question being asked by someone or this might be the worst question to many of us.  But this question cannot be ignored. We should find the answer to this question. Are we really a knowledgeable person? I will not throw any more question as of now because i have already bombarded many questions.

 

So let me come to the point now. What is a knowledge. Is knowledge means reading thick books only. Or memorizing all the topics like a parrot and score good marks in the exam.  Or knowledge means understanding each and every topic thoroughly  and implement  it according to the needs and requirement. If i say that this person is very knowledgeable then within a fraction of second his/her image is generated in our mind and our perception starts accordingly. We start thinking in one direction. The picture comes that he is the most intellectual person of this world.

Here comes our fault… When we say that he is a knowledgeable person then we always perceive in one direction and that direction is knowledge related to books or “bookish knowledge”.

In my opinion there are two kinds of knowledge. They are:

1. Bookish knowledge
2. Behavioral knowledge

We all are familiar  with bookish knowledge and most of us is having bookish knowledge. But do we have behavioral knowledge.   Yes  most of us are having bookish knowledge but  when it comes to behavioral  knowledge , i am sorry to say the  count is very few.

In this fast moving world we are able to gain bookish knowledge and there is no problem in it. I am not criticizing the bookish knowledge which is a must requirement  to survive. We must have the knowledge related to our fields but at the same time we are forgetting our behavior or behavioral knowledge.   When it comes to behavior it is very difficult to find a person having proper behavior.

 

In the present world the number of knowledgeable person is increasing but at the same time the number of behavioral person is diminishing. There might be some reason why the behavior is getting degraded day by day. One of the reason may be the greed  to get everything even though we didn’t deserve to have it. That greed may degrade the behavior.  Other reason may be the lack of healthy competition now a days. People use foul practices in order to defeat their competitors which definitely affect their behaviors. One of the most important or i can say root cause of lack of behavior is “lack of satisfaction”. No one is satisfied now a days and that leads to unfair activities being done by them which ultimately leads to the degradation of their behavior.

Let me give few examples where lack of behavior is being observed.

   Suppose your friend needs your help. He/she might be in trouble and needs you. You helped him when he required. But after that there is a sudden change in his behavior. He has stopped talking to you suddenly without letting you know the reason for the same. At that time you will really  feel bad  and you will definitely think for sometime that what went wrong. Here comes the behavioral picture of a person. It didn’t costs anything to talk to that person who helped you when you were in vain. But it happens as we all know because nobody knows when and where there will be a U-turn in the behavior of a person. This is one of the biggest drawback of any person to take a U-turn anonymously which should not happen .

 

  This is one of the simple example i have given. There are many more. I am sure you all might have come across the situation where the behavior of person have hurt you. Life is such full of twists and turns.

If the behavior of a person is good then he will be happy and can lead a good life. I agree good behavior cannot decide how much sum of money will you earn in your life but its also true that your behavior decides who will stay in your life. 

 

As i mentioned above the two kinds of knowledge : Bookish and Behavioral. 

Having only bookish knowledge can make your career bright and you can earn many thing.

Having only behavioral knowledge  but no bookish knowledge  can make people available for you or you can have people surrounding you.

But having the combination of both bookish and behavioral knowledge is an optimum one which will make you a “good human being” and becoming a good human being is the toughest task…

    Good thought-provoking post, Ashish.

    But I’ve a little confusion. Why would a person stop talking to someone who has helped him without any reason? And if he stops talking, why the person who has helped wants the person whom he helped to talk with him? Is helping some kind of price he paid to earn other person’s talking? Isn’t it greed also?

      This is an example which i gave regarding how a person might take U-turn.
      Well as i mentioned that he suddenly stopped talking without letting the person the cause of doing so. No one can guess whats is going in others mind.
      Suppose someone asks you for help. Then there is two options for you:
      1. You may consider his request
      2. You may not consider
      If you don’t consider his request then its fine. But if you agree to help him then afterwards whatever the reason being, if he suddenly stops the conversion with you. Then at that time you will get hurt for sometime. Its a human nature. But if he stops talking by providing a reason for it then this cannot be said a U-turn.

      Now coming to another aspect if i am helping someone then it doesn’t mean that i am having a greed. i will not say talking is a greed but i can say that its a type of “expectation” from my side that he will behave properly in due time. Its a general feeling of human.

      What i wanted to focus with this example is that it sometime happens and people do take U-turn which is not good in my opinion. There are other examples also where you can find the same from the real life scenario.

      And i would like to welcome you at my blog. Its an honor for me to have your views sir. So kindly keep visiting and motivating me with your valuable views. 🙂

      Regards,
