I have grown up hearing people saying that what all happens, happens for a good reason. I do trust this quote. But wonder that really whatever happened or what is happening or what will happen, will happen for the good reason.
I would like to quote some examples and then want to ask that what all good is there in all these cases.
- In my school, there was as senior of mine. She lost her father when she was in class 11. It was very sad to hear that. And within six months when she hadn’t overcame the pain of her father’s loss, her mother passed away. I did not knew the reason why she passed away? Was she ill or were there some other reasons. ? The ultimate conclusion is, she lost both her parents at a very tender age. How difficult it is for a girl to live without her parents at a teenage when she needs their support and guidance the most. What’s good in this?
- In class 12, I used to go to a coaching institute nearby. I was in a batch comprising of 72 students, among which 12 were girls, rest all were boys. Among those boys, there was a boy who didn’t came for classes for about two weeks or more. When he came and teacher asked the reason for not coming to classes he told that he lost his father. I felt sad for him. I never talked to him but whenever I saw him in class, I wondered how he is able to live his life now? How much strength has he got? And few years later, when I was in college, I came to know another sad news about him. My friend told that he lost his mother as she was ill from long time. I was shocked to hear that. How could God do this to his children? Didn’t he care for his children? Again a question, what is good in this?
- Here, I would like to take up my situation. I too lost my dad when I was 19. I was so much attached to my dad that I have no words to explain. Even the bonding between my mom and dad was also awesome. They both were my “love birds”. I bet every girl wishes to have a husband like him. He was so understanding, loving and had all qualities a girl wants in her husband. We were not able to understand nor did we want to understand what happened to us. It seemed as if life has stopped. There was nothing left . Days passed just by crying and remembering his memories. Two years went like this.Then we tried to accept the fact and tried to start our lives again. Who knew that our life would never come on track from now? Who knew that my dad was my lucky charm? This was the point when destiny played well. I got another big hit. And till date I am trying to maintain a balance between the two. Now I am on a situation where anything could happen next. It can be good or it can be bad? Nobody knows what God has for me in store. At this point again, I want to ask that same old question. What is good in this?
In above quoted three examples, I don’t find any brighter side to these stories. All I see is the darker side of all characters. Then why do we say that whatever happens, happens for a good reason. I cannot find any single good reason in above examples which gives me a hint of this quote. Then why we believe all these type of quotes.?
Despite being a very spiritual person ( Yes, i am very punctual about my prayers and my lord Shiva)when these types of cases happen, my faith dwindles and questions from every corner pop up in my mind.
All those people who have faith on God will get this kind of result. Or in mythological terms, i should say , this is kalyug. Here bad people will flourish and good ones will suffer. I do not get this strategy of God.
Well, I can debate on this topic the whole day, but to sum up with. I would like to say that till date I am still glued to my point and I want a clarification that what good is hidden behind in all the above three characters’ life and waiting for a miracle to happen?
