The moment you try to become intelligent, You cease to be intelligent.”– J. Krishnamurti (from Think on These Things)
How true? Our whole effort in life has been towards becoming intelligent by acquiring as much as garbage possible in the name of Knowledge. People respond out of Knowledge. Slowly our universities are taking away entire possibilities of intelligence. Today universities test you on how much you can remember?. Today universities papers consists of questions where students has to answer based on what they rememeber like a parrot.
To me intelligence is when you give a box to a child for the first time and he manages to open it. To me intelligence is of farmer who looks at the sky and tells you it’s going to rain any moment. To me intelligence is the ability to respond to any situation without getting upset. To me Intelligence is when you respond new ways every time you face same problem.
