Editorial November

Pessimism plays the role of an antagonist in willpower’s story of the struggle to succeed. It acts as a stereotypical villain, and reeking of vice whilst wearing a malicious grin, makes its motives evident. All it wants is to bring you down and leaves no stone unturned to ensure that it gets its way. However, to what extent you let it exerts its influence is entirely up to you.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent initiative to curb corruption has been widely talked about and as a consequence, bad mouthed, even by members of his own political party. Politicians have condemned him by stating that his deed of revamping Indian currency has “disrupted the political stability of the nation. But as far as Mr Modi is concerned, that does not pose an obstacle to him for he has been quoted making the following blatant public statement-

“Agar tum mujhe aaj zinda jalane ki bhi dhamki do, mai apni bharat maa ke liye accha karne se sankoch nahi karunga’’

Negativity finds its way in all forms. It creeps up to you when you least expect it, often externally but mostly from your voice within. The good news? You’re the author of your own story and a full stop at your will can get you rid of negativity’s barbaric antics in a jiffy.

May the odds be ever in your favour.
