The newly wedded couple had started their life in a hired house.
one day,the wife was looking through the glass window,
she saw a poor lady,her neighbour,who was washing her clothes by using her hands,
and putting it on a rope to dry it,
(as that lady had no washing machine)
She felt that it was not washed well.
she told it to her husband….. “that lady doesn’t know ,how to wash her clothes ,it is not at all clean”
Her husband didn’t respond.
After few days,
while she was looking through the glass window,
she got astonished,
she said to her husband “look,that lady finally learned to do the good washing.her clothes are clean,someone had educated her to wash well”
Her husband smiled and said “today I woke up early and cleaned our dusty glass windows”
This is a short story(micro story) to show that our perception depends on various factors within ourselves
our mood ,
past memories,our culture,concepts about self and the world
all colours our perception
Could you tell me few more factors ,that colours our perception?
