IDEA – They sat on the floor chatting with each other. The family was happy with the son’s performance. The mother remembered that time when there used to be innumerable hot arguments between the father and the son.

Ever since the evolution of mankind, ideas have been a very important part of human brain.

Your ideas are more like a splendid bird that can articulate patterns emerging even in the time of distress or chaos.

You learn and you think. An idea clicks your mind only when you think, which happens because of your knowledge depth. If your idea is accepted by a number of people out there and appreciated in terms of money, matter and quantity, it is your knowledge which is being talked about.
