Curiosity is intrinsic and comes naturally to all of us since childhood. This tendency can be observed in children and adults too when they’re curious to explore what’s on the other side of ‘NO’. When you put a baby in a cradle, it always tries to climb out, crawl and see what’s in its surroundings. When we were teenagers, we would always go against what we were told and still do I guess. 🤣 “WHY” is the first question that comes to our mind when we’re advised not to do something and the “WHY” leads to us deliberately doing it.
Back in the day, I absolutely hated eating rice. My mother had to force me to eat a morsel of rice every time she cooked something. When I got into the film industry, I was given a diet chart that said “Avoid rice” (as if I was eating rice in the first place) but guess what? I developed a liking for rice out of nowhere. Today, my meal is incomplete without a bowl of rice. I love me some carbs! 😋
Until the last 15 years, foreign foods were alien to all of us. I remember when my brother first offered me a pizza, I refused to eat it because it looked like a mess. My first reaction to seeing a burger was much rather the same and noodles looked like worms to me. Today when people tell me not to eat them, I find these junk foods irresistible. I’m sure many of you can relate to this.
Prior to the lockdown, we would all wait to get home while at work. I remember how I used to rush at the speed of light as soon as I was done with my shoot. Now, people have a sudden urge to go out and explore, when all they’re being asked to do is just stay home. Human tendency is such that we tend to do things that we’re told not to. This might be because we are so in a hurry to seek answers to all our questions. However, there would be no evolution if man never explored. Thanks to our curious nature, we’re so ahead in terms of development and innovation. So, always keep the curiosity in you alive. For now, don’t forget to stay safe everyone!
