There are people who never want to see the dark side of the life. They don’t even want to talk. It may be a good approach that breeds positivity. Even in this pandemic, they feel optimistic, “this too shall pass.” Yes, it shall pass, but not for those, who have lost their near and dear one(s). We can simply empathise with such families, but they can’t just wish their gloom away so easily.
The fact remains that whatever is there in this world has been created by God -both good and evil, the two sides of the same coin. Where there is no good, we see evil.
Can we imagine the existence of cold without realising what is heat? Similarly, there is no darkness, it is just the absence of light. For us, both Sun and Moon are important. We can segregate the things at will and choose the good ones for us, but can we do it without knowing what is bad? I think for developing a well rounded personality, we must appreciate both sides.
I remember when I was hardly twelve, my mom gave me one hundred rupees to go alone from Varanasi to see Lucknow. The experience I gained during my solo visit was more than reading ten books. The low EQ among today’s children is due to the fact that we are always ready with our protective umbrella and don’t allow them to see the other side.
I feel that absence in a way gives a feeling of presence, because if someone is absent, we miss him or her and if we really miss, that means he or she is present in our heart.
