Darkness and light

An eye for an eye. Tit for tat. These are things that we have grown up listening to. 
Many circumstances in life hurt us. People and situations can have such a bad impact on us. Some people lash out in their anger without thinking the problem through. What were the circumstances behind the lash out or the reason behind such illicit behavior. Revenge might seem like a very good option.


Darkness cannot drive out darkness only light can. While watching a movie, this line got stuck in my head. I'm a person who strongly believes in this. It's always darkest before the dawn. So how ever bad a situation in your life gets, you should believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Same goes for those who believe in revenge. There is no need to rush off at someone who fired out at you or put you down. If you believe in revenge; it shows you are actually a weak person. It shows you are not able to withstand the downfall and rise up on your own. You are a person who will only be able to get up again after you have returned the favor.

What we fail to understand is that there is a reason behind every action.
Some people are just short tempered. Its their upbringing. So does it mean they can blame it on their roots? Definitely not. I believe it is something that can be changed over a course of time. It's like substance abuse. It might seem like it wont go away but it is not impossible. It's just very tough to give up.

At some point of time in life each one of us would have fallen prey to some form of revenge or hate feud. But it's how you react that decides the fate of that feud getting out of hand.

Some people do these stuff to other people cause they too were victims of such attacks but they haven't found a way to get out of the mess. They think that if they hurl the same insults back at someone else they win. But that achievement is short lived till they find their next victim. I think its because they think they can't forgive themselves or think they are not good enough to live like normal people. There's always a choice. You can either be a good person and talk to the person or go ahead and be just like him or rather worse and hit him back. But just think for a while. What are you gonna get out of hitting him back with the same insult? Pleasure to soothe your ego that you are better than him? Or think about how you could talk to him and find out the reason for the attack and find a way to bring him up. Not only will you have saved yourself but also him. Bring a smile on other people's faces not a frown. Make the world a better place to live in. You must be the change you want to see in others.



You can take a stand and be the light to pave the way for those whose souls are darkened.

Realists & Dreamers

So I came across this while watching an episode of modern family and it really got me thinking. I'm just gonna quote the lines below:
"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground."


Yea well people might be divided broadly into two categories: You are either a Realist or a Dreamer, An Optimist or a Pessimist.

I consider myself a Realist. A Realist is a person who considers every aspect to a situation before making a decision. It's not that he is afraid to dream ; just that he realises that sometimes the dreams may be too far fetching. He could be termed as a pessimist. We are those kind people who only dive into stuff after  thinking about it a million t…

Brown Family Problems #2

And continuing from my previous post..
Dowry as I said earlier is kind of like a price tag. You hit the bull's eye when you get your target right on the money. It's quite a debated topic with a lot of laws in place to abolish the practice of accepting dowry; but that's all just in paper. In order to come into effect it's gonna take a long time. It basically means changing the mindset of a chunk of society which can be quite the challenge.


Another thing about Indian marriages or so would be the qualification of the bride and groom. If the bride is a doctor then she can only get married to a doctor. Equally important is your religion or caste. Getting married to a person not from the same caste or religion is like the biggest sin anyone could commit.If  He/she proceeds with a marriage of such sort, they would bring on themselves the shun of society and family. The family would practically disown you and kick you out. Trust me I am not exaggerating when I say disown. Its v…

Fate or Destiny?

It's probably the most debated topics out  there. One always wonders whether he lives a life that is just his fate's way or is he living his destiny.
Now there is, quite a big difference between fate and destiny. Essentially they are opposite in meaning.Fate is something bad or rather negative in nature. On the other hand, Destinyis positive. Fate is what happens on its own. It's unpredictable and the course of its nature cannot be changed. It happens regardless of what you might think or do. Whereas destiny is what you make of life. Everyone can chose their destiny. It's all the result of their choices over a period of time.

I'm a staunch believer. I believe God is the reason for my existence and survival. So in between the fate and destiny, there's one big person that actually determines your life. And that is God. You might think it's karma when u start suffering.  But in fact all that wouldn't happen if God did not want it to happen in your life.
