Faith and Promise
|by Subrata Mukherjee|
These days life has become tough for the common man. In the past nine issues I have at least attempted to discuss important issues in our life. The world is changing rapidly and situations and environment around us is also under constant regeneration. With this entire hullabaloo, the constant man can easily loose focus. They can easily forget their priority and get into unnecessary habits and anti social deeds. And with all the pressures of existence, words like faith, promise and respect can easily get lost in the haze of modern civilization.
Promise is a million-dollar phrase, which made or broke civilizations in the past. Promise is a non-negotiable instrument of faith, which should never be bargained upon in the future. It is a pity that today, we use this term casually with a general slack, not knowing the consequences of non-compliance. People, these days, make random promises, knowing very well that they are not in a position to fulfill it. Then why make it in the first place? Well everyone understands that sometimes promises cannot be kept, but there should be a genuine effort.
Faith and promise, unfortunately has become a thing of the past. As we have started to look at things with a more open mind, non-negotiable promises have fallen prey to this sense of liberalism. We now tend to take promises casually and we use the phrase more often than we should.
It would be my humble submission to my fellow friends of the world, to the common man of this millennium, not to forgo these virtues and keep up the spirit alive. Take hardships as challenges and not try to take short cuts in life.
Although I had asked readers to send in their opinion, the response was not too heart warming. Common Man's Millennium is not about a series, it is about a philosophy which would govern the success and failure of this world. We must remember, for the World to truly prosper we must respect and understand the common man. Thanks again everybody for your time and patience.
