Who should we aspire to become, Ram or Krishna?In today's world where there is a constant struggle between ethics and management, the revered personalities of our Hindu culture would always be the epitome of the mentioned characteristics. Ramayana and Mahabharat, the great epics of different times with different central characters Ram and Krishna have everything from philosophy to way of life. Ram, an obedient son, a loving husband, a great warrior, a humble character and a just king, is someone can be aspired to become to have more ethical conduct. But he is also strict and vulnerable at times and proved to be a disaster at times, at important ones.
On the contrary, Krishna, the rule breaker, a women charmer, a strategist, notorious but powerful warrior, is all about giving new perceptions to existing rules where there is only love is the base and conduct can be compromised for the greater good.
Both these superhumans or supergods have deep impact on our lives in the form of stories but in this practical world what should we aspire to become or is it the wrong question from the very beginning? You decide.
