The writer has to write keeping in mind what the reader wants. What about the reader then?
The reader has to hang on the tail of ideas the writer is presenting just like this baby elephant is doing.
The baby will begin to follow the path set by the mother and then will start exploring things on its own.
The problems arise when we either refuse to follow or follow blindly without exploring things for ourselves.
Keeping our mind open will help us learn from others and still not lose our original thinking.
