Bansot – this word reminded me of the first poem that we had to memorize for our Filipino class when I was a freshman in high school.
I can’t remember the first lines of the poem, but it goes something like this:
“… Maraming uri ang pagkabansot, ngunit ang pinakamalungkot na uri raw ay ang pagkabansot ng isipan, ng puso, at ng diwa.”
In a lot of ways, I think the pagkabansot is one of the problems of this office, and it roots mostly to some people being satisfied with just being mediocre, hence there is no growth in them. Bansot.
