Ebony and Ivory

Ebony and Ivory
Live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard
Oh Lord, why don't we ?
We all know that people are the same wherever you go
There's good and bad in everyone
We learn to live, we learn to give each other
What we need to survive
Together alive... ... ...

-Sir Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder


Point of this post is not about racism as you may have thought...it's about the Ebony and Ivory in you. Have you pointed a finger at anyone else? When you do, have you noticed that 3 other fingers are pointing towards yourself? Need I say more :) What I want to highlight in this post is that we all make mistakes...all of us are good and all of us are bad... no one is error-free and no one is perfect. Human error is the biggest trait about us that keeps us perfectly human :) The imperfect perfection of being human. The reality of you and me is that we are both good and bad. But that should not make us sit and sulk about it or point fingers at others. What it should do is make us seek for better human qualities such as Acceptance (of your Ebony), Sharing (of your Ivory), Forgiveness (for their Ebony) and Gratitude (for their Ivory).

So you have some Ebony in you and as well as some Ivory. But how many of us are ready to accept our weaknesses? No one! But all of us would love to speak of our strengths. Nothing wrong with that but we must accept that we have weaknesses too. Self-righteousness is the result of a terrible ego. What we must have is a healthy ego - one that preserves our self-respect but one that does not humiliate others - atleast that's what I think. But if that ego over-flows, self-righteousness sprouts. I'm-always-right-you-are-always-wrong kind of attitude. It will bring so much pain to you later in life...'cos people who care for you will be afraid of you...run away from you 'cos to be around you would be like to be around a bossy teacher who always points fingers at his/her students. Instead, try and be like a student among other students...know your Ebony and accept them...learn to apologise for your weaknesses instead of covering them. Also know your Ivory...flaunt them (yes :) and teach others to be better. And then know the Ebony of others too...tell them when they are wrong instead of approving them in fear of rejection and forgive them when they accept their faults. Get to know their Ivory as well...learn from them instead of being jealous and thank them for sharing.

Self-development begins when you recognise that you too can be wrong sometimes and that others too can be right many a times.

Now who's game enough to speak of their worst Ebony...and best Ivory? You are most welcome to point out my worst Ebony and best Ivory too. Oh ok, let me start then...

My worst Ebony - Impatience

My best Ivory - Kindness

What are you waiting for now guys? Let the Acceptance, Sharing, Forgiveness and Gratitude begin!

Jay said...

I am man with simple rules in life..

1) I admit and apologize when I made mistakes and expect the same from others, if not, I will be pissed off.

2) I will be nice to people who are nice to me and animals, if not, I will be pissed off.

3) I listen and respect to people’s opinion even if I disagree and expect the same from others to mine, if not I will be pissed off.

4) I don’t like to say “I don’t know” but instead I would say “I am not too sure but will find out” and expect the same from my colleagues / subordinates, if not, I will be pissed off.

5) I don’t like to be some smart ass (must be right all the times) and expect the same from others, if not, I will be pissed off.

6) I will make jokes when the occasion calls for it but if someone "over do" it, I will be pissed off

I am by nature a kind and nice guy but usually people tend to make me to be so unforgiving. That is something I don’t like about me. I wish if I don’t have to work or bump into assholes who always change me from Mr. Niceguy to Mr. Rudeguy.

My level of patience is very slim and that is why I wish if nobody will hurt me… because when I am angry, it ain’t pretty!

Het Waghela said...

One of my negative point is my temper. I get anger very fast. Positive thing on that is it flows down also as quickly as it comes.

Whenever I become angry on my loved ones, mujhe hansi aa jati hai, i mean i can't control my laugh, coz I can't remain angry for long time.

Good thing bout me is well there are plenty :) :) :)... I am very adjustible in various situation/condition.

Keshi, its good to see such nice post from ur side. I am becoming assiduous reader to ur blog.

Ananthan said...

sooo... taking it back to race, how come ebony's the negative and ivory's the positive

Jewel Rays said...

Hey Keshi:),

Intresting post:)

My worst Ebony - Distraction

My best Ivory - Encouragement

PuNeEt said...

hiiii
good one dear...

What we must have is a healthy ego - one that preserves our self-respect but one that does not humiliate others
thats so so true...
I do have a big nice healthy ego
;-) lolzzzz
not the I'm-always-right-you-are-always-wrong kind of attitude
lolzzz

My worst Ebony - Hot Temper

My best Ivory - Determination


Keep rocking
Cheers

my worst ebony - hot tempered

my best ivory - practicality

sittingnut said...

heyyy keshi!
a nice new post to get one's moral compass in to order. thanks.

my worst ebony - temper and harshness to others - i take offense easily - i have consciously tried to be mellow down and to a extent succeeded, but it's ongoing work. advice to anyone with similar problem: always take a time out when offended. as you say It will bring so much pain to you later in life...'cos people who care for you will be afraid of you...run away from you 'cos to be around you would be like to be around a bossy teacher who always points fingers at his/her students. - hope i can avoid that fate.

my best ivory - how to choose from so many :-) - i have a terrible ego too as you see- hmmmm.... my independence - i am my own man. may be that is not a good thing in some ppls thinking but i have always valued that above everything else.



Subha dawasak ....Dawasa hondhin gatha karanna...hehehe...did u get it? :-D lol, i am having a terrific day probably bc of those wishes from you. thanks!

I better stop b4 u get annoyed with me. - annoyed with you! impossible!

huggggz!
hope you are having a good day too, mate! :-)

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

one small qn here , sweety .....

why is it that ebony always points to some bad characteristic while ivory to a good one ???

both ebony and ivory are beautiful ... na ??

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

i really cant talk about my good n bad pts ... coz what may seem to be a good quality to me often seems bad to some of the people i love .....


I used to be patient
As i started growing up,
i lost that

I used to believe in fairness
Now , i believe in it even more

I believe in faith
I distrust suffering
I believe every man should be happy

I wonder why i lose my temper these days
Regret it the moment i cool down
But the words spoken in anger
Hurt all the more later

cheesemeister said...

One of the hardest things for me in this life has been to learn not to see everything in black and white. Most things are shades of gray. Almost no-one is entirely evil and none of us are entirely good although there may be some who come close.
Peace,
Cheesy

La_Surrealiste said...

Hehehe..kesh..when i first saw those two cute lil dollies in the pic u posted...i was gonna write about this one time that i went to the toy store and was about to buy a cute black dollie but didn't. The concept of Ebony n Ivory within oneself is really interestin..letz see..here's mine:

Ebony: Self-centredness,Self-indulgence, Arrogance, Jealousy

Ash/Grey: Conscience

Ivory: Will, Consideration :)

Ash said...

musings (m000nie) said...

Gangadhar said...

very nice post,Keshi.As Het said am becoming assiduous reader to ur blog.
I've got problems with my kind of impatient attitude..And I wanna confess this thing on occasion of this wonderful post...And i'm trying to control it...
And on the other side I always want to seek frienship from everybody I know...
My philosophy some what depicts as I said it as my blog's opening statement..I repeat it here...
"We all come in different SHAPES and SIZES.We all have STRENGTHS and weaknesses.What's right for one person may not be right for another.There are things that are important to me, that you don't care about at all! And sometimes your behavior doesn't make any sense to me.But I want for us to understand each other, and communicate well,because we live together in the same world"
That's it!!

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

I never thought u wud be impatient ... i thot u were one of those calm n cool types!

My worst Ebony = My temper

My best Ivory = Am Friendly

Loved the pic btw ... looked like kids made of white chocolate and black chocolate! :P

Gangadhar said...

Dis time you told your results first...
This is good...otherwise we have to scan through the long list of comments here for your choice as it was the case for the previous posts...

niki yokota said...

Nitika said...

awwww...hugzzzzz babezzzzzz......inspiring post asusual
my worst ebony - aggressive,too much sensitive,high temper, moody...:huh: i do have infinite worst character....lol

my best ivory - loving n caring

take care

Invincible said...

Ebony : Although i m not vindictive, i remember everything of wot others have done to/for me.

and i m selfish no matter how much i try to avoid.

Ivory : Everyone's good, everything's beautiful attitude.

Invincible said...

i read ur comment on last post.
It talks of my EGO. Yah, i do have ego (although not strong). nice to know about other symbols too :)

johnny boy said...

Hey kesh ...
What i wanted to ask, has already been mentioned by some fellow bloggers - why is that ebony signifies 'negative aspects'? If ebony and ivory are the 2 ppl on that pic, i think both are equally cute! So why dont we consider ivory to be negative, for a change? Why alwez poor ebony? :)))

johnny boy said...

I totally agree with what u said.. No one is perfect.. U know what, this is something i alwez say -> When we laugh at the mistakes that someone else did, we shud keep it in the back of our heads that this 'someone' is capabale of making u look like a fool, when it comes to some other walk of life! :)
Everyone has their own strengths! No one is born inferior... So we got no right, to laugh at ppl for their mistakes!
Nice post...

johnny boy said...

My weakness -> Proud at times, sometimes I care too much...

My Strengths -> Even if the going is really tough, i can wear a smile, and work my way thru it.
And, making ppl smile.. No matter what... Nothin like making ppl around u, happy :)

Jackal said...

nice one again Keshi....sometimes i wonder where do u cum up with such ideas...sometimes i wonder if shud steal a v bit of ur intelligence....tcc byee

Kroopa Shah (Kr00pz) said...

Very true indeed.
If I were to point my worst ebonies, this comment would never end :-P
My best ivory on the other hand- I consider myself a good friend, always willing to listen to anyone.

The optimist from utopia said...

Very nice post. Made me think.. And thats an achievement in itself ;)

My worst ebony: My so-called will-power
My best ivory: My sense of humor :)

Keshi said...

temper temper tenmper lol! Many suffer from it - great to know that cos I thought I was the only one with a phone-smashing temper ;-)



ok ok for guys who asked why is Ebony considered negative here....that's why I said at the start of the post that this is not abt racism...I wanted to take Ebony as Dark qualitites and Ivory as Light qualities...simple as that - not that I thought being black is negative and being white is positive in terms of people - No way!

Ebony as Dark qualitites...and Ivory as Light qualities...that's all. And yes they live in perfect harmony within u, but would u accept that harmony in another? We usually like to point out other ppl's Ebony and boast our Ivory...so this post was abt accepting that harmony in another too and leanring from it :)

Got it? Hope so...:):)


Thanks!
Keshi.

Keshi said...

***Amutha

***Jay

hey matey...hope u know that the last comment in ur blog abt that death penalty debate isnt from me....it's the Keshi-imposter. Click on theId and check the blog id...thanks!

I think u r a very kind soul..or else one wouldnt feel so much for animals. And abt patience, well I lose it on a daily basis and then temper follows..lol!

yes u r right...when ppl go overboard in any quality, it's damn annoying...there should always be limits. That's why I said that u should point it out to them when the jump the limits :)
Thanks mate!










***Het

Good on ya mate!










***Ananthan

Hey WC to my blog and thanks!

**taking it back to race, how come ebony's the negative and ivory's the positive

I answered that in my very first comment here :)










***My_Unveilings

Heyyy there hows u?


**My worst Ebony - Distraction

talk abt it...that's in my light Ebony areas...hehe...I always get distracted easily and that leads to my impatience and then temper...lol! oh god looks like Im an Ebony mountain...:(
What u must do for Distraction is perhaps take up some Yoga classes..it helped me...it makes ur mind relax and ur head clear and vigilant...try it...


**My best Ivory - Encouragement

**my best ivory - practicality

Thats brilliant! Cos I dun consider myself a very practical person...sometimes I follow my heart and not my head...and I end up crying oceans..:(










***Sittingnut

hellloooooo :) hows ya my matey?


**my worst ebony - temper and harshness to others - i take offense easily -

Hey it's not only u...me too :( I take offense very easily...I cry at the slightest offense lol! But lately I have become very strong...cos words said by ppl that dun matter to me is no big deal...but if someone close offends me, I's feel very hurt and angry..yes I agree. Are u a Buddhist by any chance? If so, u wud know that Anger is a wasted emotion...that being angry only wastes ur energy and burn u inside. I will come back to Anger in a different comment...cos alot of us seem to suffer from it lol!
Ur adive to others was great....yes, when u r angry just take time to respond...cos words said in anger can damage minds forever...


**my best ivory - how to choose from so many :-) - i have a terrible ego too as you see-

I have an Ivory coast...lol look at my ego..it's not only u mate :)


**my independence - i am my own man

thats soooooooo good to know..I think I can tell u r very independent...from ur posts and views, I can see that very clearly...it's imp that we think for ourselves than depending on others...


**i am having a terrific day probably bc of those wishes from you. thanks!

awwww so good to know that ;-)

Thanks and Hugggggggz!










***Deepa

hey sweety hows ya?


**why is it that ebony always points to some bad characteristic while ivory to a good one ???

I have answered that in my first comment in this post..have a look sweety :)


**I believe in fairness

I think thats a great quality to have...not many ppl r fair...they only think abt themselves...


**But the words spoken in anger
Hurt all the more later

thats so true...thats what we should calm down and then speak...

Thanks hunnz! Hugggggggggz!











***Cheesemeister

Hii again :)


**Most things are shades of gray.

Very true..I agree. But this post was to highlight ur worst and best qualities...that may help u to realise that u have to work on making urselves better...perhaps...:)


**Almost no-one is entirely evil and none of us are entirely good although there may be some who come close.

true again. I hope I didnt say that anyone is enitirely good or bad in my post :) What I meant is we all r good and bad...a mixture of it...no one is perfect and that we should realise it and live together in harmony :)

Thanks mate!

sittingnut said...

hey friend!
huggggz

I was the... one with a phone-smashing temper- lol i am trying hard to imagine that!

I cry at the slightest offense lol! But lately I have become very strong...cos words said by ppl that dun matter to me is no big deal...but if someone close offends me, I's feel very hurt and angry. - closer they are the greater the anger and hurt isn't it.


I will come back to Anger in a different comment...cos alot of us seem to suffer from it lol!- great idea!
it's almost comforting to know that lot of others suffer from anger. shows how we are all the same with same problems.

Are u a Buddhist by any chance? If so, u wud know that Anger is a wasted emotion...that being angry only wastes ur energy and burn u inside. - i understand what you are saying and the buddhist teaching on anger. btw i am not a buddhist, i do not follow any religion. my father is buddhist, my mother is a catholic, i got to learn both religions when a child, which was great. i think i was lucky that way.

thanks! hope you are having a great day as i.

sittingnut said...

btw your kindness certainly triumphs over impatience. see the comments above as evidence

:-)

Keshi said...

***Sittingnut

hugggggz matey :)


**i am trying hard to imagine that!

hehe u cant believe it na? well I did. One day I had a stupid argument with someone very close to me, so I smashed the phone on the floor after the conversation...it opened up but I could fix it lol!
I dun do such things anymore..cos Im single now :) it's peaceful..hehe...



**closer they are the greater the anger and hurt isn't it.

yep..cos they matter the most...



**it's almost comforting to know that lot of others suffer from anger. shows how we are all the same with same problems.

yes alot of us have uncontrolled temper...unfortunately...



**btw i am not a buddhist, i do not follow any religion. my father is buddhist, my mother is a catholic, i got to learn both religions when a child, which was great. i think i was lucky that way.

oh good to know that, thanks. My my granpa was a Catholic, my dad was a buddhist, mum hindu, I went to a Christian school, my best friend was a muslim...lol so u can imagine my experiences :) I respect all religions...



**btw your kindness certainly triumphs over impatience. see the comments above as evidence

aww thanks u always make my day :) Have a good rest of the day and a great weekend ok.

Rita said...

"Acceptance (of your Ebony), Sharing (of your Ivory), Forgiveness (for their Ebony) and Gratitude (for their Ivory)." Very well said, Keshi. I agree with you completely! :)

Jay said...

Interesting thought!! :-)

Rohit Talwar said...

it's an amazing thought, Keshi.

err..

my worst ebon(ies) - partial & impatient

my besy ivory - hmmm...


great post. :)

Het Waghela said...

Hey Keshi,

There is no one at home who annoys me. But its my fault or my ebony of short temper, which makes me such of small and unnecessary things, childishness I can say, or that "Male Ego" sometime pops up. Which is bad on my part so I am trying not wear Ego anytime. But sometimes mistakes do happen.

And and and,,,, I will not get angry so fast on ur sweet request of new post :).

Was drowned in bit of work these days, so just visited few of the blogs with which i am assiduous to like urs, Gangadhar's, Sumi, Smyta and so many to name ;). Also was not striking anything to write of, but recently something were drolling in my mind like my latest post on Leadership, so just striked that chord on today's post.

Have a gr8 weekend.

my worst ebony - wrath

AmitKen said...

hey keshi,

that was a lovely post, absolutelyly wonderful. I just love you say all the wonderful things about complexities that we tend to create within ourselves and around us - in a very very candid and simplified fashion.

i just love this post.

Jigal.. said...

my 1st comment to ur blog keshi,...
nice concept...
i like ur post,..

My worst Ebony - impatience

My best Ivory - Caring

tsduff said...

Keshi, loved this topic. I've seen a lot of good reflections in here - it is difficult to just pick one worst and best as I have such a multitude of each, LOL. Some days I'm less apt to be accepting of the Ebonies.

My worst Ebony - Procrastination (sloth)

My best Ivory - Encouragement of others

sittingnut said...

hi mate!

I dun do such things anymore..cos Im single now :) it's peaceful..hehe... - being single is peaceful i agree, but is that worth it?

.....so u can imagine my experiences :) I respect all religions... - that explains your kindliness and tolerance.

i am writing this to ask whether i can do anything to help you get rid this piece of garbage that has cloned your profile ?

i think ppl here can tell the difference even without checking the profile number who the fake keshi is.
you are simply one of a kind and unparalleled, every word you write shows that.

anyway have a nice weekend and do not let the loser disturb you.
hugggggz !

Johnny B. Good said...

was dat a keshi clone??
well wat do ya no



the real keshi hasnt banned me

Johnny B. Good said...

i agree wid Poison
besides ebony and ivory are colours

dis is racist



BLACK AND BROWN IS BEAUTIFUL
white suggests sickly white, anemic,
always indoors No sunlight


Besides i hate the Britishers
i love Americans

Johnny B. Good said...

my strength: i can kick ass, like nobody can

my weakness: my ass

Boldnbeautiful said...

First of all I would like to Congratulate Keshi on appointing a Personal assistant to reply the comments on her blog on her behalf. hehehehhe

My worst Ebony - Impatience, non forgivable nature, temper

niki yokota said...

"A few seeds make
a small harvest,
but a lot of seeds make
a big harvest."

Each of you must make up your own mind about how much to give. But don't feel sorry that you must give and don't feel that you are forced to give. God loves people who love to give. God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others.

The Scriptures say,

"God freely gives his gifts to the poor,
and always does right."

God gives seed to farmers and provides everyone with food. He will increase what you have, so that you can give even more to those in need. 11You will be blessed in every way, and you will be able to keep on being generous.

Thanks!












***Sittingnut

**being single is peaceful i agree, but is that worth it?

hmmmm...depends...if it gives me much more than I have right now, in terms of peace, joy and sense of worth...then i'd go for it. But in the past, I didnt get that from the guys I went out with...but who knows what the future will bring - keep ur fingers crossed for me ok ;-)


**i am writing this to ask whether i can do anything to help you get rid this piece of garbage that has cloned your profile ?

garbage belongs in the bin...and that's where I put em...so dun worry. As long as u can see it's not me - and I know u wud have known straight away, cos what this loser writes is pure crap and out of pure joblessness - what a sad life.
