•READ CAPTION "Hope is a good thing, Red"
- Shawshank redemption.
What? You seriously thought I won't mention this alluringly heroic dialogue.
Okay, run down to a quick short story.
Personally, I believe there is no need of religion in this era. Because it's just breaking us apart.
So, I was debating with my mumma about the necessity of religion in our era.
I kept my arguments as it, saying " it is being used by the people in power to suppress us and break us." She smirked at my cynical philosophy about it and answered, " Who gives you the right to take away hope from people? If you take religion away, you are not reducing the tyranny. You taking the hope, the faith people have in their Gods" " If religion is giving people hope, a hope to live, a hope to love, a hope that things will be back; then why is it not necessary?" She added.
I paused for a moment to understand her perspective. And then, and that very specific point of time I realise what hope does to us. The fact that a we applaud a person's resilience is an example of the person's hope.
Now the question is, why is hope necessary?
Remember that time when you were drowning in the stream of your gloom?
Remember that time as a kid when you and your best friend has a fight?
Remember that time in your 20's full of Existential crisis?
Now, think about what helped you get up in every one of those stages.
No matter how nominal, difficult or life-death situation it was.
Think about that thing, the thing that helped you rise from -5 to 0 and in no time you were again back to the top of the world at +5.
Think!!! You probably must've gotten your answer.
But let me clarify too.
It was ' HOPE'.
Yes!! Hope. Hope in yourself,hope in your friend, hope in your dream or maybe hope on the God. Maybe hope in a freaking chair.
It was hope all the way along.
Sometimes, you just need to hope that things will be better and they do.
Hope is the best motherfucking thing to happen to all of the mankind.
Not just necessity but also hope is the mother of all inventions.
Hope is a good thing Red.. @dishahahaha Here's your word. :)
