Is it worth trying when the results are foreknown?Generally it is believed that one should try his/her best irrespective of the outcome. Also one's role is limited to performing his/her duty ('karma'), without thinking too much about the result etc. It is also said that participation is more important in any activity, not the results.
However one question often haunts me.
Should one try even if the results are foreknown?
In the society there are many examples of bias and favoritism. There are biases on the basis of caste, religion, region, language , gender or many such other factors. Not only that while appearing in very challenging competitive examinations also, sometimes it is foreknown that the individual concerned has no chance of winning or clearing the examination.
