What do you mean by the word 'story'?I read a saying in Bengali which I am sharing with you all after translating it in English. The saying is: It is easy to write a story based upon life, but hard to adorn life like a story.
After reading the saying, a few points crossed my mind:
First, stories can depict the life of any person is undoubtedly possible.
Second, The last part of the saying says that it is tough to decorate life like a story which is quite confusing. It is so because whenever we see something beautiful or all of a sudden something good happens, immediately we conclude it by mentioning that it seems like a story. Does that mean we always consider stories to be joyful and colourful? Is it a reality? There are stories written about the lives of troubled people, and that cannot be a pleasure to read.
Now suppose we consider the stories to be gorgeous, then yes, it is impossible for most of the people to ornate their lives in a glorious way as written in the saying because the reality is far away from a story. On the other hand, there are numerous stories which are tragic and painful, should we decorate our lives with literary tragedies?
It is confusing that what the word 'story' reflects actually. Kindly share your thought.
