Chikku always remembered me. Even when I miss to see him for a year, he would come to me with affection and love.
No life without Sun
"If you are killed in action, you go to Heaven. If you win, you rule this Earth (as beautiful as Heaven). That is why, O son of Kunti, take a firm resolve and fight!"-- Shrimad Bhagwad Gita
There was a dog at my house. It had given birth to 3 puppies. After few days when the puppies started walking, one of the puppies died at my neighbour's house, could be some unknown disease. So a small boy who had come to visit his relatives at the neighbour house carried the puppy which was dead and brought it to our house. And the dog felt that the small boy killed the puppy and started chasing him, evenwhen ever the dog saw the boy.
The boy left back to his native. He visited his neighbour after 2 hours again and when the dog saw the boy, it again started chasing him. So no doubt dogs have a very good memory power.
This has made scientists question what does intelligence and memory even mean. We often quantify animals, taking humans as a baseline. Which isn't particularly effective.
Elephants have a large brain and remember everything from faces to maps. They are also capable of painting in captivity which shows just how strong their memory is. But elephants have a weak eye sight. Dogs have a better eye sight than elephants but their primary sense organ is their nose. Animals that remember smells have a much better memory power when you ask me. Dogs can map their way home using their keen sense of smell. They can remember faces. If not odor and sound atleast. Since we humans memorize things visually its hard for us to even comprehend such memory power. But we do it in daily basis. I only once tasted a Korean dish. But it still lingers in my mind. All our senses equally contribute to our memory.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Knowledge is power.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
