Participation is taking part or getting involved in something. Only if participation is there, you will get an insight into the details and will have a say in any matter. Some people simply refuse to take part and be a mere spectator. This will never help you to gain an upper hand and pass on judgment, just for the sake of it. Participation is essential and it needs some amount of courage for participation. Standing ankle deep in water and learning to swim will take you nowhere. You have to go deep into the waters to learn swimming. So, participation is the essential crux of the problem and without it, you are no more than a spectator. It will not give you the authority to comment unless you participate. ‘There is a fine line between participation and mockery” said Scott Adams. Here is a nice collection of quotes on participation and read them and share with your friends to participate.
