Decreasing Forgiveness; Increasing Revenge. Where the society is leading us to?Forgiveness is the key factor to turn your enemies to friends and acquaintances. The great Indian culture from the times of 'Treta Yug' has been teaching us this moral. Even lord Rama before attacking on Dashanana sent him a peaceful agreement so that there shouldn't be any war which is ultimately a result of revenge; directly or indirectly. Talking about 'Dwapar Yug' Lord Shri Krishna himself went to Hastinapur for deriving peaceful agreement prior to the war of Mahabharata.
So great is our culture where it is said that even enemies and criminals have the right to speak for themselves and to bid a sorry for attaining forgiveness. Indian law is still following this by giving due rights to suspects of hiring a lawyer who can take their case and speak in their favour.
But, the societies have been changing day by day. The people residing are slowly forgetting their great value of forgiveness and have starting becoming revengeful. Most of the criminal cases these days coming in front of police are based on revenge. The revenge which is resulting out of insults, taunts, bullying, financial comments, non developmental stages in jobs and economical fields and even sometimes love affairs.
Brothers, sisters, lovers, neighbors, relatives and all the relations of the society which previously used to be shoulder for everyone have become venomous these days. Even in a kid of merely five years one may see an anger of revenge when he is scolded. At the same time if he is taught not to fuss about such petty things and all what's done with you is for your up gradation; hasn't the society us going to change again? Why and from where kids are learning this? Undoubtedly from the family and society. If family members stop taking the favour of children on mistakes, which usually people are doing these days, isn't the situation going to change? Why are we forgetting the great virtue of forgiveness day by day? If this value is vanished the society will reach to heights to cruelty and brutality which would be extreme painful. We should inculcate thus virtue in the children from beginning and at every stage and age.
