Silence may help at times when the situation is heat Ed but I am all for communication since it difficult to gauge what a particular silence means 

usha manohar

They say Silence is deadly weapon. How deadly is silence , I can tell a few examples in my own life.

Whenever my Better half asks me to do a job not liked by me, I simply walk away from the Place. Another example is, when a visitor or relative comes to my house, whom I hate, I simply walk away  as if I i had forgotten to to attend a meeting. All the above deeds are done in Silence.

If we can't speak right thing that it is better to keep silence. When some one come to my house and I don;t like them than after wishing, I never speak single word with them.

Silence is my weapon. I am a polite and firm parent and spouse. When upset with my daughters or my husband, I become silent. My silence conveys a lot to them and it has always been more effective to make them realize that something has not gone well. Silence also helps me to regain my sanity and even inhibits me from showing my ugly face of anger and hurtful words. 

Even in disagreements in a formal setup, I prefer to stay silent and listen. It also helps to imbibe other's view.

Sandhya Rani Yes sometimes silence is better than ugly words. I too prefer to walk away in silence if I am not in a mood to keep friendship with the same person later... - Sandhya Rani - 4 years ago

I often resort to silence with my son when no amount of coaxing and requesting works. When I remain silent and refuse to answer to him, only then he realizes that I was dead serious about what I had been telling him. But of course, this strategy does not work all the time, which is when I can no longer remain silent. :D

usha manohar @kalyani, I too used to that but eventually would speak out because my children would sense that I was upset and go all out lol.. - usha manohar - 4 years ago

In some situation or you can say among some relationship it usually happens that if you express your disagreement people resort to arguments and bitching. In such kind of atmosphere, it is better to remain silent and it speaks a volume. People who love to pick up a fight do not dare to do so when the other one remains silent and does what he/she prefers to do.

For those days it is suitable and silence which may be the good tool. But today it is not work and not suitable. Because in my case, I'm very calm nature. My husband and in law who doesn't consult any family matter with me. It is very much hurting me and still because of my calm nature I not even ask anything. I cannot change by nature and so only I want to say silence is not a tool where the person who doesn't understand feeling of others otherwise it would be a tool.

Silence is a deadly weapon because when we talk less we hear more and when we hear more we understand the situation properly so being silent has it benefits.when I am angry I try to be silent because in anger we take wrong decisions. 


When Venkatesh Prasad was bowling to Saeed Anwar in a tensed Indo-Pak world cup cricket match, Anwar lifted  his bat to show Prasad the boundary line after hitting a four. Prasad was silent and bowled a leg-cutter in the subsequent delivery to shatter Anwar's stumps. Indeed, silence sometimes is a great weapon and an excellent instrument for taking revenge.

according to me silence can not take form of weapon or revenge but argues can be transform into weapon and revenge.
