Variation of Values - A study of behavioral psychology


Health of Language


Courtesy Times of India, August 23, 2010 
On August 23, 2010, the Directorate of Health and Family Welfare Services, Govt of Karnataka, published an advertisement for dengue and chikungunya awareness. However, it turned out to be an advertisement of the state of health of English language in the state of Karnataka.

Some phrases that could not be digested even with antacids:
1. Prevention of mosquitoes... - Do you prevent diseases or disease causing agents. Thankfully, they did not go a step further to say "prevention of rain."
2. The first three stages of 7 days are egg, larvae and pupa -  What a structure of the sentence!
2. Severe head ache - isn't headache one word?
3. Treatment: Contact any government hospital... - as if private hospitals don't have the license to treat these diseases.
4. Please co-operate with the mosquito control measures undertaken by the Health Department - Shouldn't it be ...cooperate with the health department for mosquito...
5. Don't allow water to stagnant - Never knew that stagnant was a verb.

YOU by Maharishi Shivi


Another nonsensical composition by Maharishi Shivi smelling of Arabian sea. May you, the reader, be blessed with dyslexia before reading any further because reading it all the way would lead to corneal collapse and understanding it would cause to cerebral hemorrhoid.

You are the Greedy and The Kind
You are the Hunter and The Hunted
The Slayer and the Slain.
You have known Joy and the Pain.

You are the Boundless and The Bound
The silence and The Sound
You have known both peace and Fury
You are The Victim,The criminal,

The Judge and the Jury.

May you hear The Judge's Verdict Loud and clear.
You are all of this and you are None.
You are everywhere far and near
and in everything Under the Sun.
May you Find yourself
Discover the road and the Destination

May you hear the judge's verdict loud and clear
and recognise its your own voice.
