Words too are diet, but.....

Words too are diet, but.....   By HARISH MONGA DIDO

Apart from eatables, words spoken or listened too are diet for me and others to survive.  Like, we eat for survival, we speak for other’s diet in this developed civilization, otherwise there is no necessity to speak or even write, which we too do for others.
We pick the words from our memory, spoken by others or read somewhere or quoted by someone. Some are golden words and some are unwanted, un-parliament, un-digestible to be used while interacting with others.
One should be very careful while speaking to someone, must be choosy in using the words as words once spoken cannot be taken back.  Sometime, you have to regret, say sorry or tender apology to close the confrontation with your close ones, to put an end to any controversy later on.
Words have its own significance.  Some are encouraging, positive, fabulous, powerful, and sharper than knife.
We too sometime consult the dieticians for a balance diet chart to maintain our body.  Similarly there is always a need to retain the vocabulary of word diet to use them at the appropriate time for a particular person, or consult the old-timers to seek a word of advice.
Most of the people like good strong words that mean something.  It is always better that one should speak the words of the language, one understand as that goes direct to his heart. It is always easier to do good work when you have good words to say and work with good people.  George Herbert has rightly said, “Good words are worth much and cost little”.
For doing marketing of any product, the seller has to use the selected words. Words have an ability to evoke emotions and feelings and those who specialize in marking exactly know how to trigger those responses.
It is said. “The six most important words: I admit I made a mistake. The five most important words: You did a good job. The four most important words: What is your opinion? The three most important words: If you please. The two most important words: Thank you. The one least important word: I."
Frankly speaking, words too are a diet.  A writer lives in the world of words.  The words are so innocent and powerless while standing in the dictionary. The moment they are used they become your actions, which become your habits, character and ultimate your destiny. They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.
I have observed that use of words depends upon the circumstances and situation. The moment we understand as to which word is to be spoken at what time and then there would no great chef than you.  Words from Holy Scriptures are the best words to suit every ear. But, be sure to taste your words before you spit them out. Over to your words...!!!
