My Column : Truth about lies

Like’ To be or not to be’ , hard Truth or easy lies: which road to follow. when going is getting tough- is always a challenging situation. Same goes when on a turning point in life. This thought of fools paradise or taking the easy road, always knocks at our consciousness whenever we are tested. But sometimes even a minor lie can do too big a damage or an innocent truth can give a deep wound. On the other hand life is nothing but continuation of good and bad choices. To brood over the subject I have collected few sayings of the wise sage on the subject –
“The truth is always an insult or a joke, lies are generally tastier. We love them. The nature of lies is to please. Truth has no concern for anyone’s comfort.” — Katherine Dunn
“The trust of the innocent is the liar’s most useful tool.” — Stephen King
“Always remember… Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.” — Ziad K. Abdelnour
“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” — Alduous Huxley
“Fools lie, clever men stick to the truth.” — Michael Scott
“Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly.” — Mahatma Gandhi
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” — Dumbledore (J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone)
“Being honest may not get you a lot of friends but it’ll always get you the right ones.” — John Lennon
To see the world in a grain of sand and hold the eternity on your palm’ sounds romantic but takes titanic effort and concentration. Still ‘Lekhni’ is rooting for hope, for belief in heart’s goodness; it is a search not for an utopia, but for that ‘ Lost Paradise’ where everything was right and full of hope.
Once again this issue on Truth and lies is no exception.
