Pure truth, like pure gold, has been found unfit for circulation, because men have discovered that it is far more convenient to adulterate the truth, than to refine themselves.

Always speak truth that’s what we have learnt from our teachers, books and from our well wisher. Believe me so many people tries to maintain the rhythm of truthness in their life but fail to do so most often, because when they observe the area around them or people around them, the ice of truth start melting. Outside temperature of people, society or principles the people follow, compel a ice of truth to melt. So the purity of the people start melting and they change themselves and take the help of a lie. This equation made by so called society where truth seems to be ugly, senseless, tasteless,baseless and wasteless.On the otherhand a lie, a deception comes in a attractive package, most appealing, most rewarding. Visiblity of lie is so clear and you can recognize it from far distance . On the other hand try to see the truth, visibility would be blurred, even any spectacle would not give us the clearity and in a result truth seems very doubtful to us.
I don’t why I am writing this but one day my nephew came and shared that he got selected in school badminton team and was happy. After hearing this I also felt happy because I knew he played well and and would usually get maximum guidance from me. But after two days he told me that if he had not spoken lie he would not have been selected. That’ gave me shock, because a guy who is eight years old, studies in 3rd standard, having his own perception about truth. Being the uncle of him I always encourage him to speak truth and forgive him whenever he speaks truth . After that I was thinking how I can help him to change his perception.
Now the second incident happened with my friend who also was believer of truth. After getting the tag of job hopper he did not want to speak lie infront of interviewer and this habit of him always got no entry from the company for the job he is looking for. He shared everything with me and said now I will have to change the gear and should take the help of lie. Though he was mature enough so I left everything on him and within a week he was smiling and was having appointment letter in his hand and showed the result of speaking lie.
Take any politician, any businessman or any category of man, they are ready to mix a pinch of lie for the betterment of their life . Today we talk about to eradicate corruption from the society but how will it happen, when the basic of people going other way round. So In order to become corruption free society we need to correct the basic and the basic is to prevent ourselves to speak lie otherwise corruption will remain in the society and lead us to fatal situation where the coming generation would feel suffocation and will not get proper oxygen. I hope we don’t want to build tomorrow like this.
