An arrangement of 26 letters makes words. They have the power to build or break. They have the power to make someone feel love or hate. It’s quite simple actually, how you put your power of words to use…
For an example, these politicians use them to mislead us, to make us believe there will be a change.
While, Gandhiji used them to win over our freedom (and also our hearts).
Words have the power to make someone consider suicide; but they also have the power to encourage someone. Words can motivate a person from Yipps syndrome. Words can motivate a person who gave up in their dreams. On the other hands, they can also hurt people; they can cause people to dislike themselves.
Words, I repeat, are just an arrangement of letters.
I distinctively remember learning ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.’ But in actuality it’s more like ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will only leave psychological damage.’
Similarly, I, Aranya Johar, will have a segment each month on Akash’s blog. With my use of words, I will try to send a message across. Something that will either motivate you or something that will inform you about something you haven’t known before. I will also include poetry here and there.
Thank you for welcoming me!
And thank you Akash for this opportunity.
Words can make someone feel beautiful or absolutely worthless… so remember to use your words wisely.
