In every sphere of our life we keep communicating through strong and weighty words that impress our personality on others. Its importance has not only been laid down in scriptures but also in the modern world. The mighty power of words can be seen in the stories, poems, essays and the other forms of artwork in which  writers ponder deep to penetrate their meaning for exhibiting their true feelings and emotions. The impact of such words is different on the different set of people as they perceive its meaning as per their pre conceived notions and common understanding of things which help them derive conclusion; a quite complex definition of communication. The aim of this paper is to highlight that efficient and positive words enhance the beauty of speech while negative and poorly chosen words demolish one’s image.
