This Hardly Makes Sense!


At school, we were made to mug up the definition of man, which went like – Man is a rational animal.
At that point, I had a picture dictionary, gifted me by a friend of my mom’s. The picture dictionary had found its way into my lap from the US, and it was a big deal at the time. However, it did not feature the word rational.
The definition was mugged up well and it has endured.
As time went by, I came to know what the word ‘rational’ meant. Whatever it was, going by the definition, my young brain was always trying to make out who was a man – according to the definition – and who wasn’t. It was an interesting time, nonetheless.
So it is now. I just hope the definition hasn’t changed.
This page is dedicated to such findings.
