5. Listen to Heart - Believe Trust, Prevent Rust ………..
Trust is firm belief in the reliability and truth or ability of someone or something. It leads to confidence. You Trust a person because you believe him. Trust is free from suspicion or doubt. It emphases on certainty and assurance, it is ‘conviction’. This leads to reliability & thus faith. We all believe in the Supreme Power & thus have faith in him (Lord). Trust is the foundation of Mutual Trust & Respect.
Marriage is a big and important event in every family and so was in my friend’s home when his brother’s marriage was finalized. The atmosphere started changing. A positive vibration with excitement started. The works of the marriage preparation was decided. We could observe people coming and going now and then. It was a happy going atmosphere. The elders planned all events and distributed responsibilities after several round of discussions. During those discussions certain changes were also made. The responsibility was decided based on the individual ability which was required for that particular activity. This is Trust. Various functions were organized. You could participate in sangeet samelan (Music & Dance), Mehandi (Henna) decorations, leg-pulling, jokes, etc. The final day of Barat came. An open car was decorated so that everyone could have a look at bride. In all this happy moments my friend’s mother called his son. She made him to sit next to her. Slowly he kept his head in his mother’s lap. He told his mother that I would like to talk to you and reply to this she said “I know beta something is troubling you, so speak out“. His mother got a shock after hearing him. He told her that he is committed to someone else and he cannot say “No now”. She was shocked to listen this. The whole atmosphere became quiet and did not know what would be the next course of action. She conveyed this to the father of the boy & her father in-law. The whole atmosphere changed within a minute. There was silent in the whole house. The positive vibration got disturbed. It was a tense situation.
Let us now see what Trust is. The boy is committed; it means he Trusts his girlfriend and the Girl Trust her boyfriend. The two families had trusted each other which were leading to family tie up. We all will agree that relationship is always built on Trust. Now if the marriage takes place between the two lovers then the Trust builds between them but the two families’ relationship starts getting rusted. If the marriage continues then the Trust is built within two families but the Trust gets not their between the two lovers. As a normal human being we will start finding who is to be blamed and tag him or her. It is up to you all to decide and find a solution. But this is a situation which is increasing in our country. Is it taking us in Positive direction? Is it taking us in Negative direction?
Duryodhana was full of negative thoughts and ideas. Duryodhana had committed to Pandavas that he would return the Kingdom which they lost in Poker but for that Pandavas had to stay exile for thirteen years. Pandavas trusted Duryodhana and agreed to his terms. The Kingdom was under Duryodhana’s control. The terms were agreed only on Trust. But after the said tenure was over Duryodhana refused to stick to his terms. This lead to mistrust and the relationship got rusted which resulted in Mahabharatha.
