1382 : Debates and the life after

I enjoy my debates with Prashant. He is easily one of the more biased folks I know, but then to most, I appear opinionated as well. Opinions and biases should in no way be construed as impediments to an open conversation….it almost always means that the person has rehearsed the thoughts a million times in his head (in the past).

the other day, we had a raucous debate on “inclusiveness”….we completely disagreed – but then I still learnt a lot.

I have learnt how to leverage his views and opinions to aid my decision making process….like when he was helping me decide “should you be allowed to choose your surname” debate?

I cant say that I enjoy my debates with most folks though…with most of the folks…at some point….I am amazed at the frivolous in their voice.

To debate, you need to be open to learn and adopt, and the idea should be to solve a real life problem….rather than pontificate.
