I was thinking of the film “Don” “Gunday” “Ek Villian” “Godfather” “Maleficent” or for that matter “Once upon a time in Mumbai” and the other films which tell us about the other side. The side of the gangsters and how they got into it the business. It is always a sad story or a story that somehow and in some way makes you accept them.
Not just that, we actually sympathized for them when they lost their loved one or when they were being chased by the police or when they themselves died. What does this tell you? I realised that the minute you know someone’s story from their side, you do understand them, their reasoning and feel sympathy for them.The proverbial walking in their shoes surely works.
This helps me understand 2 things.
- Accept everyone for everything. Have trust, they truly must have a reason. (I personally need to work on this a lot. 😦 but now I understand and keep me in your prayers and I think I will.)
- and if there is communication amongst people, then probably relations would be better. More than that, if there is love, I guess everything is solved if there is love but Communication is what I think could help in understanding the other person.
I know a close someone is feeling hatred and a lot of negativity for the other family members. I feel sad. I feel worried. Sometimes I think that we really live in the best of times but when I think too deeply, I really feel scared for my future and of my coming generations.
Anyway, something to think over the weekend. I hope this helps you understand a little better.
PS- I am sure there are many books and films that must have the bad guy as the central character, these are the latest that came to my mind. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend and keep smiling 😀
