Evil !

Saturday, May 24, 2008

When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before. I believe that what the rich have done to the poor people in this city is something that a preacher could call evil. Somebody has power. Pretending that they don't so they don't need to use it to help people -- that is my idea of evil. Without followers, evil cannot spread. The evil that men do lives on and on...

Evil unchecked grows, evil tolerated poisons the whole system. The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. He who does not punish evil, commands it to be done. But, he who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

Bilkul sahi kahan Purnendu bhai. Agar sab samarthya wale jaruratmandon ki madad karne lage to fir duniya se saitaniyat k anamonishan hin mit jayega ....

is sandarbh mein Swami Vivekanand ji ka ek kathan yaad aa raha hai:

"So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man as a
traitor, who having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to
them."
- Swami Vivekananda.
