Every single minute, we humans live with Emotions. To be transparent without Emotions we do not exist. Take a minute and guess how many emotions we express in a day. It’s not that easy to list it down. To understand how we are using different emotions in our routine, a quick example is there.
Look down at your smartphone where we express our feelings through Emojis or Emoticons. But, sincerely we can accept that we do not know the exact name for all the emojis. Because we tend to use only a few. Way back, our ancestors have identified nine different expressions through Bharatanatyam called ‘Navarasa’.
LOVE, COMIC, COMPASSION, ANGER, BRAVE, FEAR, DISGUST, WONDER, TRANQUILITY.
Emotions are not meant only to Humans. Every creature in this world expresses their emotions in their own way. In fact, the same range of emotions is experienced by Animals too. Looks interesting Right??
If you are so keen to know about the emotions expressed by the Animals then give yourself a read on the book “Beyond Words”- How Animals Think and Feel.
Emotions were considered to be so powerful. But the proportion has to be so perfect. I want to compare our emotions with Salt.
If it is high = it may change the taste of the food.
If it is low = We can’t enjoy the food, even the food looks Appealing.
Food = Life
Salt = Emotions
Add it’s right to enjoy the GOOD FOOD.
Emotions are so powerful. It is a non–verbal communication where we express what we feel inside and that represents through our behavior. Emotions are like flash short-lived.
