You know one thing I have seen that we people find it very hard to accept the defeat, may it be of any kind. We some how or the other find a way out to satisfy our selves temporarily. For example (I will give examples related to the elections as it would be my focus here) I have heard people say things like, ‘had the Burger party supported me I would have never lost’, or I have even heard one say that there has been an element of rigging in the elections, which in my opinion is all rubbish. Hey, I know it’s hard to put up with the setback, but what’s the point in blaming someone.
‘But he was my friend, at least he should’ve voted for me’ I heard one of the candidates say who lost in the recent TISF elections. You people must have also heard people saying the same thing. If a friendship is being affected by elections, then let me tell you that it was not even friendship in the first place; it was just an interaction, which was broken due to unavoidable circumstances. People don’t really realize the meaning of friendship. It has a much superior meaning and significance than it seems. Friendship is not something, which can be easily affected by this small thing like elections. It is high time that we should realize that what friendship is and give it ample amount of room in our hearts to reside comfortably.
