Erotic Elephant #BlogchatterA2Z

Day 5 #BlogchatterA2Z

E for Elephant and E for Erotic!

To start with I am at work and I can’t keep myself from giggling like a kid at these unstructured and unrelated thoughts 😛 . This challenge has its side effects and I have started experiencing them too.

For sure this post is about none of these but EDUCATION.

Education is the foundation of every civilization and is an integral building block of the social setup. An organized structure is always attributed to fine tuned and flexible minds.

Significant is the fact that we quite conveniently set benchmarks and are quick to proclaim the definition of the term. Anyone able to read and write, provide logical arguments and instructions, debate and so on are some of the established ones with major consensus. I feel it is more about the real life sensitivity and compassion rather than the degree of reading and writing skills we posses.

Education means empowering and liberating, providing a sense of right and wrong, instilling acceptance, perseverance and being open to thoughts. Do not restrict the scope to learn, analyse and shun what is wrong.

Values, ethics and order in life are true markers of being educated rather than chaotic sophistication. A beggar willing to share and care is much more educated to me than someone aptly read and dressed yet ignorant to be an influence of change for the less fortunate.

Coming back to the Elephant, it’s important to educate about the good things but ignoring the complexities (Erotic) is not recommended at all. Deviations and distractions happen only when we decide to avoid certain integral aspects which return to haunt us as the anxious daemons.


Erotic and Elephant have the same significance in our lives and help to maintain the required balance lest you decide to ignore one and deny it the required EDUCATION.

Rest I leave it to your scrutiny as I am still in the process of educating myself 🙂 !

Till then keep SMILING and LIVE some more while you can, for there’ll be plenty of time to drag on 😛 !

Stay tuned for more interesting and thought-provoking posts.

  1. Aah! What all we do for challenges like these! The other day, I was commenting on the sly at work too! 😀
    This made for an interesting and thought provoking read.

  2. This is not only very clever writing but a touch of marketing genius too. Loved how you chose a title tha would make a reader curious. Your thought are food for thought. Loved it!

    1. You made my day by such kind words. Wish I could find a mentor to hone my skills and improve further 😊. You are an observant and well read blogger 👌.

  3. Loved the way you have taken the E with this post. There are good and bad values and which E we choose is the education of the present time.

    1. I am relieved and glad that I was able to connect with the lovely readers and the message went across as intended. Thank you so much for your time and thoughts.

  4. Education is complete only when it is sprinkled with humane values. The men who built concentration camps during the Holocaust where are all highly educated engineers. The only problem was they were filled with hatred. Learning and being educated does not guarantee good values.

  5. Indeed education is complete when you learn from it too. Being educated is not sufficient one has to be learned as well to inculcate the education in their lives and in order to build a civilisation.

  6. Education is certainly much more than simple reading, writing and earning a degree. It has to ensure inner growth, development of reasoning, discerning right from wrong etc etc. But reading and writing helps us acquire other skills at least empowers us to explore other possibilities. Yes, I agree there should be no prudery when imparting knowledge. Erotic and elephant should be taught equally powerfully. But world over educators. have accepted that at certain age, meaning of erotic may not be understood by students.

    1. Yes indeed every kind of education has a specific age related significance. The point in contention is that it’s avoided or ignored altogether most of the times.

  7. Interesting. In my last post, I spoke about my love for academic education. I’m actually thinking of doing my 3rd post graduation but it is the not the only education. We keep learning from people and circumstances and that’s the practical form of education. Very interesting topic.

    1. It was tricky as well as challenging to pack a punch with so many limitations of not straying too much and not getting carried away with the preaching part 😛 . The hardest part is to infuse humor.

  8. I loved reading this post, as not only it was thought-provoking, original and precisely balancing the erotic and elephant side of the education belief system, but also it was so beautifully written which made me smile as I finished reading the post.

I would love to hear from you :)
