Lateral Thinking is Inborn
Lateral thinking is inborn and exists in children to a large extent
. But as they grow up our system at home and school education generally kills this urge to think creatively since our parents/teachers are incompetent/hesitant to answer the questions particularly the why's of many things and hence shut the door to creativity very early.
We are looking today at a problem with many solutions but not the challenges of many problems with a single or simple solution. If you ask the right question perhaps we have the right and lateral solution.
