Speaking truth is difficultMostly, speaking as well as listening to truth is always difficult. Generally, people know when the situation demands truth should be speken. If the situation is adverse to truth then truth is restrained because the expression of truth may cause them harm or leave detrimental effect or negative repercussions in future. Nobody wants to be harmed for speaking truth.
Some people have two faces. They masquerade as truth bearer but in reality they are worst creature. Some people notice which direction the wind is blowing to and accordingly they change their stance . These people are more successful in their lives. They speak truth when they find no harm for them and they refrain from uttering truth if they may get inflicted with problems. These are pragmatic people. But some people who are truthful and they always stand for truth can't stand silent. They are fearless. These people always fall in trouble because of enmity of wrong people but they are ready to face every challenge in their lives. The don't glance at pros and cons of speaking truth. They can't restrain themselves from uttering truth. Their germs of truth keep them disturbing in case they are pushed into incommunicado and they can't have mental peace until they speak what is right and what is wrong. Such people are rarely seen in today's world because they know standing for truth at the face of the powerful people may drag them into deep trouble. Different elements will corner and marginalise them and also nobody will come forward in their support, nevertheless, they vent out their stopped truth. Lately I saw a video of Rakshat Singh, a journalist of ABP News who vented out his anger loud and clear on Kisan Mahapanchayat in Meerut. I felt pity for him when he spoke," I earn 12 lac 7k package. I have a son and my wife . I don't know how I will give good life to my family, good education to my son because nobody will give me job. I have been stopping myself for a long time but it is unbearable to me." and he kept on speaking almost screaming. As he had been fighting himself for a long time and all what he has stored in his heart was coming out.
