In my blog, have always spoken about brighter, happier side of life.Well, what about the other side?
When I take the following names, take a moment to remember them and try to picture them in your mind. Why? read to know!

Television- I’ll just name one very prominent – the ‘Dexter’ series starring Michael Hall.
Back home in Bollywood- The iconic characters of Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan), Mogambo (Amrish Puri) to the bad men of all time, Pran, Prem Chopra, Lalita Pawar and Shakti Kapoor to Nana Patekar, Aushtosh Rana to Shahrukh Khan in Darr, Baazigar, Don to John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan (Dhoom Series)

As Albus Dumbledore says ” It is our choices, and not out abilities that determine who we are”
Hence, those who are termed as “bad” have many good abilities and characteristics, but it is their “choice” which makes them “negative” or “evil”
Let the dark get darker, don’t be vexed, let it get more murkier and uglier, because after a point it can’t get more worse or murkier because eventually after a point, it becomes lighter, clearer and beautiful- After every night, the day eventually follows! There is no other option!
” The shining sun is hot fire
the moon has dark spots too,
the bright looks the brightest
The dark is at its darkest
Take not the world at the face it displays
Because there’s always an other side
which it conceals ”
So learn from the passion and strength of the dark while always sticking upto your original, true, good self.
Yes, there are negative people out there, from sadistic killers to murderers to terrorists, but if they weren’t there, we would have never understood the tremendous significance of things like friendship, compassion, love, morals and the absolute joy of giving and helping.
Like I said earlier, the good always triumphs over the bad. it may be sooner or later, today or tomorrow, but it always will. It’s just that the real sense of victory over the evil can only be felt if the evil is at its best! Like’em or hate’em you just can’t ignore them!
