A wise man changes his mind, a fool never will. —Spanish Proverb


This proverb states a wise man has the wisdom to change thoughts, opinion, mind based on the situation; however, a fool never gives a try.


The heart of this proverb is in the word ‘change’ isn’t it! When we talk around the change—which is the hardest job for anybody. If I asked you a question “what lunch did you take three days ago?”

Why the change is hard?

Can you recall? Most of us not; if yes then it will be something special meal like a party or maybe your favourite food. It happens because our smart brain does not give importance to repetitive activities in doing; so it supposed to resist any kind of change.

Change is the principle of Nature.

Now we knowing change is hard to adopt for our brain. However, change is the principle of nature. Take an example of a change in seasons i. e. summer, winter, monsoon, spring. These all happen naturally not the climate change and global warming—we do not focus on this topic today.
 Importance of Changing Mind

Changing mind is a crucial choice for anybody as discussed in the first section. In order to understand it better let us express thoughts on current J&K issue.

We as an Indian global society hared a lot in news of attacks, casualties in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K state). Many profound leaders of India believed that article 370 is the main harder in the several occurrences. Though, it survived for more than 70 years until the Modi Government change his mind and take a brave decision of changing the law (Made article 370 ineffective). The decision making is hard indeed, especially for the change and the only wise men able to achieve it.

In conclusion, it is a wise decision to count on change considering the circumstances.
