Why direct communication is paramount rather than heard it through the grapevine?We all have seen that the communication gap gives rise to numerous troubles in our lives.
A game named Broken Telephone in which several people stand in one line. In which a person from one end of the line conveys some message to the person next to him. The next person does the same thing by passing the message to the person next to him. The special thing about this game is that whoever tells the message to the next person communicates it according to their nature, ability, and information what he thinks is right. This sequence continues until the message reaches the person standing at the other end of the line.
It is often seen in this game that what is said by the first person changes entirely as soon as it reaches the last person. Its real argument is that everyone in between interprets the message to the best of their ability and passes it on to the next person without contemplating whether the message was right or wrong. This type of video is also becoming quite popular on social media.
This demonstrates that if there is no direct communication then it is nearly impossible for the actual message to reach the intended person. Naturally, new problems will arise which will result in ill effects on health and mind. Therefore it becomes necessary for the sender and receiver to go for direct communication rather than hearing it through the grapevine.
