A - Ask

One of the most gifted animals in the world is human being. The best gift that he is endowed with is inquisitive instinct. Curiosity that sparks a question in mind is very important for a man. The need to find answers to one's questions, the very search to satisfy the curiosity in a man takes him a long way. It is important to ask, to question and to know. A yogi, a scientist, a student, a lover and everybody else is driven by curiosity, questioning and knowing.

I have palpably experienced the benefits of asking. When I had doubts about anything, I never feared asking about it, no matter how foolish it seemed to others. Nobody is a born genius, so why should I worry about others' perception about my questions?

The important lesson I have learnt from life is, when you don't know, ask!

I so agree with you. Curiosity is one of the greatest gifts. You can learn so much and experience so much more if you are perpetually questioning and questing.

So true! It's always better to ask than to go on not knowing. Good luck on the challenge! We're doing “I’ve Got The Music In Me” this year on The Road We’ve Shared. – looking at how important music is in the Down syndrome community. I hope you’ll stop by and see/hear!

Nice post - and I agree with you. I've noticed that in the past few years, I've started to get over the fear of asking questions; maybe I'm not at the point where I wholeheartedly agree with there's no such thing as a stupid question (in terms of me asking them) but I'm getting there.

Great post! :)

Most people love to be asked as it's in their nature to be helpful. There's nothing worse than an know-it-all!
