I read this article “Take a Right Turn “in newspaper today where the author mentions about brain tilt in India. I totally agree with his notions that Indians on an average are left-minded people; they have a better logical and analytical thinking skill, but lack in terms of creativity and innovation which seem the forte of the right-minded people.
Why is this peculiar trait seen in Indians?
Do we truly lack original and creative thinkers?
Probably! And the reason behind this might be our redundant education system and our the upbringing also to some extent. All kids are creative, inquisitive, and love challenges. But as they grow up these qualities seem to disappear gradually. Why? I think it’s because we as a society curb their uniqueness, their creativity and push them to follow the ‘safer path‘ , or ‘a path taken by majority‘, or ‘a path which gives good returns in terms of fame and finance’, but never a path which is of one’s own calling.
