Lie and live or else think different and die!

                          It is amazing how the world rejects new born ideas and how it humiliates the people who look at the world in a different angle. Socrates had to drink poison and die. In a world with such a history we are taking about the freedom of thought and expression. "Whatever the church says the earth is a globe and it rotates round the sun" Galileo said. When Charles Darwin introduced the theory of evolution the whole world was against him and considered him as a man with mythical beliefs. Albert Einstein was labeled as an idiot and was thrown out of the class. Sometimes it is funny that the same world which rejected to admit their ideas finally embraced them as truthJ

                  In life you have two options. One is following the same hackneyed path followed by thousands of others and nodding your head to whatever others say. The other path is quite tough. You have to build your own way of imagination and create your path with it. People will sling mud and stones, tease you, pull your leg and do each and everything to stop your venture. For someone to select this option he must be brave, strong hearted, broad minded and creative and even has to sacrifice his life.
                   When you think different either you are a lunatic, extremist or a betrayer or a person who doesn’t love the motherland and a person who doesn't repect traditions. These are the common labels you get!   
                 Martin Luther King who dedicated his life for eradicating the colour bar was shot dead. American president Ebraham Linchon also had the same fate as a result of talking and working for the rights of slaves. John F. Kennedy introduced a number of reformations to the traditional American society and initiated to the space explorations.However he also was murdered. There was a person to kill Gandhi who was the father of non violenceL
           It’s true that one may have personal comments on these people. But it is obvious that the main reason for them to die untimely is emerging as different characters kicking the so called orthodox beliefs. World can never develop without innovations, but still the people don’t understand that everyone has a right to express their own views and to like what they really like! If all start thinking in the same way, exactly the world will be a very boring place to live. It is hard to think different and live. Sometimes it will be a life time hurt because of the way others react you.
Anyway it’s always your choice whether to lie and live or think different and stand for the truth and die J
