MUNDAE MUNDAE MATIR BHINNA
Few days back I sketched Michael Jackson & uploaded the sketch in some websites. Many people visited my sketch & commented on it .However no two comments were same. All the viewers had different opinion about Michael Jackson’s sketch .One wrote that my sketch is very lively & beautiful. Another left a comment saying that my previous sketches were better. Somebody wrote that the sketch is not of Michael Jackson but of Hollywood celebrity Richard Marx .Another visitor asked me to sketch his avatar picture as he loves my style of sketching.
For a single sketch I received so many varied comments because of ‘ MUNDAE MUNDAE MATIR BHINNA ‘ .
Mundae Mundae Matir Bhinna is a Sanskrit proverb meaning as many brains as many opinions. In other words people vary in their intellectual & thinking abilities & therefore each individual views & thinks differently. Every one should understand the proverb ‘ MUNDAE MUNDAE MATIR BHINNA ‘ , since if we know that every individual thinks & views differently we will never become disappointed or develop negative approach when somebody passes an undesired comment for our work . Also we will not jump on our toes & develop superiority complex when somebody praises our work. Thus one should not form any conception about one’s own self or work on the basis of remarks made by people because every individual thinks differently. For one you work may be a master piece &for other it may not carry any value.
Either it is a negative or positive remark / view /opinion /rating /comment for our own self or for our work , we should always take it in positive direction .For instance , if a person comments poor on your work take the remark positively & try to improve . If somebody comments well try to be better next time. If somebody says better try to be best in future & if somebody says best than do not start pulling your collars upwards but instead try to maintain the quality of your work. We can survive only if we accept that every individual has unique views & thinking & we should always take remarks of people positively. If we do not accept this we develop negative attitude & because of this people go into depression as they think that the are good for nothing.
As we all know that one burning candle forms infinitive number of images when the candle is kept between two mirrors placed at equal heights facing each other . Similarly for same article or composition or any thing people have several different views & we should always consider the opinions of people positively.
