    We should be broadminded

    Flexibility refers to broadmindness in thinking or having perception or establishing any notion about anything whereas rigity is just opposite to flexibility. It is exhibited when two or more people coming from different backgrounds are engaged in debate or argument and how they present their views and the manner of disagreeing with each other while taking things  logically or illogically, rationally or irrationally all such parameters manifest how these people who are engaged in debate, discussion, argument are flexible or rigid. Some people are extremely stubborn to tow their line of illogical ways. They realise their flawed ways of thinking nevertheless they are too rigid and presumptuous to accede to flexibility. Such people are to be discarded from arguments. I had observed such people who are well qualified but still they are narrow minded and they don't want to come out of their shell of ignorance. In this situation a flexible person will keep quiet in debating with them and these  people take it as their victory. They don't know he discontinued debate because he knew that these people will get exasperated and even start quarelling.

    It is really unfortunate to note that very few people on this planet are broadminded, may be none of us. Tolerating others even for their bad actions is not broadmindedness. Listening others talking and speaking, however useless and boring it might be, is also not broadmindedness. They all are in fact accommodating others just to avoid conflicts and confrontations. So, what is broadmindedness then? What comes to my mind is one must be above from the selfish and vested interest and also above any feeling of group mentality or community or religion. For becoming broadmindedness education and cosmopolitan life style is a basic pre requisite. If we are bound to our social and cultural myths, we can never be broadminded. For becoming broadminded we have to sacrifice our handcuffs of blocked mind and prejudiced characters. There are many evil and clever elements in the society which exploit the gullible people and will see to it that they never become broadminded because if it happens these crooked people lose their jobs.
    Knowledge is power.

    The big problem with many that they want to stick to their way of thinking and does not budge to the thought process of others and thus consensus and broad minded attitude need to be inculcated. Even in politics there is a bad practice being followed now as there would not be pre poll arrangement of fighting the elections together and there would be abuse and face off during the entire campaign and once the verdict is out and when it seems to fractured then the same parties try to have post poll alliance much to the dislike of voters who would fume for their wrong decision in life. And those who are having give and take policy in life can have the trait of board minded and thus many fail to compromise and stick to their ego and thinking. That is the reason being so some are not successful in their life approach.

    We are iindulged in the double standards when we express something reflecting our broad mindedness and at the same time we are preoccupied with the thoughts of our own interests and to achieve the same, we can go to any length even bypassing the usual norms of the societies. The broad mindedness for which we are giving some much importance in the society since when followed religiously can lessen strain because of their noble charecters. They enjoy comfortable lives because they have less worries and have no intentions to harm others. Helping people in the hours of need and listening their pains and anxieties is a kind of broadmindedness. Such acts don't involve the investment of huge amount of cash from our end but doing so mental peace can be attained.

    We need not be rigid and we can accommodate the thoughts of others also. But an important issue is that we should get the best solution for the issue on hand. We need not be rigid and think that we are correct always. We have to think based on the issue but not based on the person, We should not think that we are correct always. Best solutions will evolve only when different people debate and accommodate the views of others. This is about flexibility and rigidness.
    One should be broadminded. We should see the pains of others as pains of ours. We should treat others the same way we want to be treated by others. Respect the feelings of others. Never make a bad opinion about others. Consider the reasons for their behaviour and think about how we behave in such situations. That will give us a good understanding of the other person.
