Every coin has two faces
( The thought process was triggered by a tamil post of my friend A G Kesavan in face book. My thanks are due to him )
When four friends go a hotel ,
Togather and take food,
If one of them pays the bill,
Does he want to show us he is rich,
Or does he show that our friendship,
Is greater to him than the money?
Suppose some friend does an action,
Which is considered not good by us ,
And he says “I am sorry , friend” first,
It may mean he has committed a mistake,
Or that he considers that he respects ,
Our friendship more than his ego?
Suppose some friend whom we are,
Not bothered to contact by phone,
Contacts us , It may mean,
That he does not have any work,
Or That he likes us and ,
He wants to talk to us.
Suppose some friend of ours,
Does not bother to laugh ,
When we v crack a joke ,
It may mean that our joke is useless,
Or that he is a very serious person,
Who does not laugh at any one’s jokes.
Suppose some friend of us ,
Does not recommend our name ,
For some job with his another friend,
It may mean that he believes ,
That recommending some one is dishonest ,
Or it may mean, we are not worth recommending.
Suppose a friend of ours in school/office,
Does not bother to share his lunch with us.
It may mean that the food he brings is useless,
Or it may mean , he does not like to eat,
Any food other than food prepared in his home.
Suppose a friend of ours does not join,
With us in talking harmless gossip,
It may mean that he considers ,
The matter concerning others,
Should not be discussed or,
It may mean he is a prude who acts like honest.
So friend , every coin has two faces,
And every action can be explained ,
In more than one way and ,
If we take the negative side only,
Without any reason , we are inviting misery.
Please understand “Life is short but pretty”
