Many people wondered how he could resolve so many issues with his vision, attitude, and not responding to any criticism. A thorough gentleman in Indian politics and bailed out India while it was facing a critical economic crisis with his visionary appointment of Dr.Manmohan Singh as his Finance Minister. Thus Dr.Singh, another silent performer was brought into the political arena who later served the country as Prime Minister for two terms.

Coming back to the point of discussion, silence is the best weapon when there is no need to make the other person understand the content as it would be clear by that time that there would be no use of explaining or convincing. There is no use in some occasions counterarguing to have your say as it would be a futile exercise and waste of energy. Moreover, we can have space and time to analyze and understand the situation better and wiser way. No other way of communication would be better than being silent when we are hurt or ignored by someone. When someone is using offending words and enjoying a higher position, no use of wasting words and silence is the best option which lets the other side know where he went wrong. But do not let silence to play an active role in your life as it is not 'Zinda Tillismath' for everything.
"Don't waste words on people who deserve your silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all."
