Coma vs Comma

Dead log on desert sand


COMA – is a state of unconsciousness in which a person: cannot be awakened; fails to respond normally to painful stimuli, light, or sound; lacks a normal wake-sleep cycle; and does not initiate voluntary actions.

COMMA – According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word comma comes directly from the Greek komma (?????), which means something cut off or a short clause.


If i have to really define the above two words in a much more simplistic way then Coma is a situation which describe end of responsiveness and something without life, where as Comma is a condition used in a context where we are telling there is more to what we are referring to and its not an end.

When this is taken in a literal meaning what differentiates both is the letter “m”. When this gets related to human life – the “m” can be referenced to “me” (our-self). Its the m(e) which decides weather something has to cut short and end or something has to continue with importance on life. So one has to take a wise decision when shaping up his/her life weather they want the m(e) to play a significant role to continue with their life. So when you are stuck in life and are unable to make progress and get a feeling of dead log – give a second thought and importance to the m(e) and unwind-refresh-rejuvinate and give a second life to yourself.
