Conversation is an art. It springs from the need to communicate with others. Through conversation we give expression to our thoughts to get the desired results. To participate in a dialogue with a wise man is a pleasant sensation. Longfellow has very aptly said, “A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years“ study of books.“ Words most often are spun for the joy of life. A good conversationalist adds novelty to the art of conversation. He turns his arguments and narratives into good dialogue. He becomes master of the situation when he provides chance to other to share his views under congenial circumstances. Talkativeness is not the sign of ability to converse. A good conversationalist creates an environment in which everyone feels included. He avoids certain topics like job, marriage, salary, religion or some sensitive issues. Conversational ethics demand that no participant should interrupt in between or cut short another“s talk mid way. To listen patiently to each other“s views is one of the virtues of a good conversation. One has to be a patient listener. Patient listening gives a feedback to the speaker. Active participation of both the speaker and the listener keeps the conversation alive. Conversation is said to be successful when it is properly understood by the listener. A docile listener becomes a yes man and merely nods his head in assent. Here the purpose of conversation loses its purity.Lord Chesterfield says, “Words sre the dress of thoughts, which should no more be presented as rags and dirt than your own person should. One“s talk should be purposive, pregnant with ideas, satisfying to the minds of the listeners and capable of creating favourable response.“ We should shear our temporal garb of status and disposition in our conversation and share the platform of reason and understanding. It gives charm to life regardless of cares and worries that human life is beset with.
