We give a name to everything and anything. I know, what i am to say might sound silly. Well, it did sound absurd to me. At the same time, it made me think.
A particular thing is associated with it's name. Absolute chaos reigns when the names are interchanged. One does not understand what the other is trying to say.
B blurts out the names of colours at any given point of time. In fact, she corrects us to the T. 'Red' to her is the bright shade of red. Orange is the colour of a delicious orange(the fruit). A slight variation in the shade, she immediately disagrees with us.
Kids are taught various things. My opinion that asking them to picture that object for that specific name restricts the mind of the child. The broad channels of different thoughts are narrowed to a single stream. Mind you, this is an everyday phenomenon. Thousands of such processes occur in the mind of the child.

To re-initiate those broad ways of cognition is time-consuming and a tedious process. But, it is hardly done.
What is your take?
