The power of questioning

All the symbols were living happily in their joint happily. They were all doing their jobs peacefully without creating nay noise. And it was a world of monotonicity in a way. No curiosity, no challenges and no questions too.  But the people [symbols] never realized it as they never know the other world of curiosity. So one day a ? (question mark) was pushed out of heaven[or was it from hell] to the joint family of symbols.

Ahh… the miracle started from that moment. People started to question things.. new discoveries were made..the life changed totally..

Questioning is always an effective tool. In fact a question can catch the attention of even a wandering mind completely as our brain always works in the direction of a question it heard.

And yes, “asking a question is a good way to catch your crush’s attention too”

    ….and then the crush must be smart enough to give a convincing answer to get back the questioner’s attention too.

    Sure the A has all the power but I liked when you said all the A’s slipped out of the alphabet. Ending was good.

    Absolutely correct.
    A new question leads us to several answers , telling us the several ways to reach the horizon.

      Exactly…. restating the problem with added questions always helps one to dig further and reach the horizon

    Liked the way you have written about question mark. It has power to change normal situation to chaotic . It creates problem but gives many solutions too.
