Critical thinking is a way we analyse a situation or a statement under logical reasoning and independent thinking. Critical thinking could help us detect inconsistencies and common mistakes in reasoning or belief and formulate our own conclusion. We can nurture this capacity by having the habit of using critical thinking to analyse any situation in our daily life.

Here we have found on the Web an amusing story to share with you. Please enjoy reading it; at the end we will submit a question to your critical answer.

“A merchant bearing fifty rolls of cotton on his shoulders stopped to rest from the heat of the day beneath a shelter where a large stone Buddha was standing. There he fell asleep, and when he awoke his goods had disappeared. He immediately reported the matter to the police.
A judge opened court to investigate. "That stone Buddha must have stolen the goods," concluded the judge. "He is supposed to care for the welfare of the people, but he has failed to perform his holy duty. Arrest him."
The police arrested the stone Buddha and carried it into the court. A noisy crowd followed the statue, curious to learn what kind of a sentence the judge was about to impose.
When the judge appeared on the bench he rebuked the boisterous audience. "What right have you people to appear before the court laughing and joking in this manner? You are in contempt of court and subject to a fine and imprisonment."
The people hastened to apologize. "I shall have to impose a fine on you," said the judge, "but I will remit it provided each one of you brings one roll of cotton goods to the court within three days. Anyone failing to do this will be arrested."
One of the rolls of cotton which the people brought was quickly recognized by the merchant as his own, and thus the thief was easily discovered. The merchant recovered his goods, and the other cotton rolls were returned to the people.
A very interesting story, isn’t it? Now we have a question for you: What is your opinion about the judge in this story: Was he really a good judge?

NATURE ART  is a new way to express 
feeling and thinking of the artist through an image 
from the nature taken as it is. 
Seen by eyes and interpreted by mind. (cph 2016)
