Value of Truth?

I happen to discuss a topic with one of my pen pal it was regarding Truth. His comment “yes, atleast 10 people walk on the path of truth” on my question, “is simplicity and truth being valued today?”

I had subscribed for his blog post. It was a post on Mr. Narayan Murthi. I value him a lot. And I happen to ask him that above question.

As per my observation, we don’t dare to speak truth as we are afraid. Afraid of being scolded, afraid of loosing some time. If we are not afraid, we speak avoid speaking truth to gain some benefits. Consider under listed examples.

Raj, (this name is a dummy name) he is a student of class 7th. He loves to play and enjoy life. His interest in studies is less. His mother use to make him study. But he loved to play. He use to study as mom use to force him. It was exam time and he had not completed his studies. He copied certain question’s answers from his friend and lied at home as he had fear of being scolded. Also he would not be allowed to play and would be asked to study more. So he lied. He was successful in hiding truth at that moment and made a habit to hide truth whenever he want to win the game.

Dipen (this name is a dummy name), a graduate of Science faculty. He just joined job and luckily got engaged with a girl. Girl was a village girl who took less interest in his job and he didn’t care to inform her about his job. After marriage they had financial problems because of job. He explained her, it was not necessary to tell her about his job. Actually he had fear to loose her, so he kept details of his job hidden.

Pratik (this name is dummy name), a graduate working with accountancy company. An out going person, who loves to smoke, drink and visit prostitute for fun. Married an educated girl but didn’t dare to inform her about his habits. She learned about his habits after marriage. She was explained, it was a strategy to marry a girl like her.

Radhe (this name is dummy name), she is a graduate, to earn a job, she boasted about her studies. As time passed she was not able to perform and she was asked explanation.  She had no explanation.

Many or most of us speak lie, to get some or the other benefits. Thinking what will happen if we speak lie or cheat others.

Nothing happens if you speak lie or cheat others. You are not cheating others. When you are speak lie or cheating other, in true sense you are first cheating yourself. You are actually telling lie to your self first then to other.

Think on this before lying next time.

Strength of Truth

Truth!! I will not be able to say anything against truth even it will be difficult for me to accept anything against truth. As my life and my strength is Truth.

Yes, its strange and surprising but its true like sun and moon. I don’t fear to accept my weakness, wrong deeds, mistakes.

It was my school days when I was made to change my school. I had hard time to mix with people, because, all was new for me, the culture, environment and then my extrovert nature. I use to observe people around me each hour, I learned there difference between boys and girls. Boys use to play in a different group then girls. It was not an innocent atmosphere. I learned there in order to pass exam you can use support of chits. I believe its a universal truth, we learn bad habits first than good habits. I too learned making chits. It was my first day, first time when i tried to open chit and was caught. 🙂 those who taught me this was not able to teach me how to do all this. I went home, told my mom. To my surprise I was not scold much, I was told to work hard and stay away from such things. I hardly had strength to go to school. I use to feel like I had done a big crime similar to that of killing a person. After a week I was bit normal and made up my mind. I will not copy.

I still have shadows of my 1st standard,  when I had told my school principal, “I was tried and the paper was boring so I didn’t write.” Ya, I had stopped writing paper in between exam and lay down on bench. My parents were called and I was asked why I did like that.

Coming to that main point, then many of my teachers tested me. They use to go out of the room keeping book open but I never use to copy. It was me who was then made stand in front of class and class was told to learn from me.

That gave me strength. Then never I looked back I had strength and courage to speak truly whatever I did and do. This made me strong enough to face anything. Then I never filled shame to admit about the above listed facts of my life. Even I didn’t feel shame to admit any thing good or bad I did in front of my parents.

But today when I observe outside world I don’t find enough people who have strength to speak truth.
