Dear Editor,Norman Cousins, a great American journalist, says that the greatest tragedy is not death, but the greatest tragedy is to kill one’s own skills. “At the same time, I sometimes observe that the biggest push we make is when we move beyond our skills to another field or profession, spending the rest of our lives carrying the workload, he said. We are all aware of the fact that God has endowed every creature with a special skill or art, but it is human nature to ignore the virtues of others as well as sometimes our own. I have seen ordinary people crying for something or a virtue that they do not have, instead of recognising their potential and honing it further. Man cannot be omnipotent. Sometimes it happens that people want to be like whoever they see moving forward, for example, if they see someone in a police uniform, they want to go to the police. If they see someone writing, they too start writing. It does not produce any meaningful result. The first step is to recognise our skills. Now the question is how to recognize your skills? The simple answer is that we or the parents have to take care of what the child is paying the most attention to or what he is doing with full dedication, attention or pleasure. The child is not alone in what he is doing. The work that one enjoys doing and does not feel alone means that there is both interest and art in that work. So first of all, recognise your skills. After recognising it, work day and night to hone it, after working hard, make the same art, skill your profession. When we make our art our profession we live life happily, less of a burden on us and more passionate about setting ourselves as an example. So be sure to recognize the hidden skills within you. Because one of the easiest ways to rule people’s hearts or the world is to make your art your strength.Harkirat Kaur,Hiranagar.
