Chanakya Neeti 1: Be afraid of danger till it shows up, when it does strike it.
Very wise words for sure, at least, in my dictionary, I too believe in being afraid of dangers, but never cower, if they do decide to mess up with me I will stand my ground. I was never the one to stick out my head into the jaws of a lion or alligator, as a child I used to try by hook or by crook to escape, now being a grown-up I don’t try that anymore but do avoid it with great enthusiasm and eagerness.
Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
As I am too engrossed with my twins (agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com and agnijaat.wordpress.com- check them out guys, my twin Ezines Agnishatdal and Agnijaat) I will use him as my own and your teacher for at least a couple of months. Hope you will benefit too!
