Let Truth Create Sensation

Let Truth Create Sensation

Man is a slave to some false perceptions where the lie is considered a better approach to an easier life; better than the truth that is harsh and unfriendly. Such perceptions fill us with guilt.

It was a mid-day break during school hours. I was having lunch alone as my bestie was absent on that day. There was this ‘so-called’ friend of mine who gave me a lesson on the importance of truth. She came to me and asked for a company to the school canteen. Agreed.
The canteen supervisor was busy, so he asked my friend to take out the ice-cream herself from the freezer. She did so. But instead of one, she took two ice-creams from the counter. She snatched my handkerchief and covered one ice-cream to hide from the supervisor. I became furious. How could the girl take me for guaranteed? I had agreed to accompany her to the canteen but not to commit a crime.

“How many have you taken?” Canteen man asked casually.
“One!” My friend was extra cautious in replying.
.
.
My parents always taught me to be truthful and honest in my actions. The situation was a far cry from my morals. My friend paid for one ice-cream and took two, leaving me bewildered. I rejected her as my friend and took my hanky back, baring the ‘stolen piece’.
“Two ice-creams!” It was me. I was beaming with pride. The truth freed me from guilt.

On that day, I lost a friend but learnt an important lesson for life. When I tell the truth my conscience lauds me. Somewhere in my heart, I feel satisfied that I’ve not broken the trust of my family who has complete faith in me.

    A family is a strange thing. If they are good and supportive, that’s the best gift. The biggest support system one could possibly imagine. On the contrary, I have been seeing families where siblings and parents have a blood-bath over a tiny piece of land or inter-caste marriages. Where’s the faith and love? Where’s the compassion? Lucky, I have a wonderful family adorned with a little kid.

    People lie to make life comfortable; don’t understand that it’s going to load them with moral burden forever.
