MERCY

To the world, the murderer condemned to die has no mercy. To the murderer, the world has no mercy; and so the long, strong chain of man’s inhumanity to man continues. It is the story of man judging his fellow-man and extracting what he thinks is the price to be paid for an action…non-action. There is always a price to pay.

Now a days, it is felt that to show mercy is a sign of weakness in character. Not true. Rather it is a sign of great strength, vision and wisdom. To be merciful is to show an accurate understanding of the situations in life which go way beyond the facts and evidences as they are presented visibly.

To be merciful indicates an elevated consciousness, so high, that in spite of the disparities and bad actions, we can have the strength to say “I understand and I forgive”.

She was determined each of her students became a linguist…

On this Teacher’s day, a very nice thought came to my mind. Who is our first teacher? I think it’s our mother.

It feels very satisfying when a mother says I will learn again with my kid as I forgot few basics. What does it mean? I think it’s a very positive approach towards life. I came to learn this during an interaction earlier. It can reignite the passion in you and motivate your kid as well. This is an win-win situation for all in society when both can act as teacher and student for one another.

Do you have a second opinion?
You think and I…
