Society has become so complicated these days that its best not to ask any personal questions. Why?
1. How many kids to you have?
Last weekend, I met this interesting British fellow. He said: “From my first marriage, I have 2 kids (one of which did not survive). My second wife has 2 kids. 1 from a previous marriage and another which I have fathered.”
After this, in a friendly way, he threw back the question to me: “Now you tell me what should I answer? Whenever someone asks this question, I am perplexed should I answer him the number of kids I have fathered, or the number of kids I provide for, or the number of surviving kids?”
2. Where do you belong to?
My forefathers come from a region which I have never visited. My grandparents build their house in a second state, where I have lived only for a year. My father build one in a third city, where I have never spend more than 10 days. My education was done in 9 different schools across 5 different states and the longest period I have stayed in one place was during my Under graduation. So to which part of the country do I belong to?
Is there a simple question in your life to which you have no answers?
