Philosophy of Life

Hard work and fate

There are two widely prevailing and mutually contradictory views on hard work. One is that however hard you work, you are only going to get whatever is there in your fate. Other one is that 'nothing is impossible'. First view is held by those who are influenced by experiencing failures in spite of hard work. Second view is held generally by those who have experienced success.

My views on hard work are somewhat statistical. To me fate is nothing but chance. While people say somebody is born in rich family by fate, I would say it is so by chance.

Thus it would be more appropriate to say that hard work doesn't guarantee success, but improves its chance.

"All fingers are not alike. If you stretch smaller ones to make all equal, it is socialism. If you cut bigger ones to make all equal, it is communism. If you do nothing to make all equal, it is capitalism. "

Alternate medicines

In greek the 'allo' means different. Perhaps allopathy meant a different therapy. Today it is no longer just a different therapy but since long time has established itself as main therapy. Alternate systems of medicines harp on the fact that allopathic medicines have side effects. Many of today's so called alternate medicines do not have any effect. Where is the question of side effects ?.

"Poor are poor , because rich are rich"

Existence of God

Existence of God is matter of faith. He exists at least to those who have faith in him. But it is the society which creates the faith and society consists of men. This brings us to famous question 'Man is God's creation or God is man's creation?

“In past people never questioned existence of God, because they knew he exists, in future also they will not. Because they will know he doesn’t."
