Shades Of Grey
As children, we are told of the world in two colours - black and white or good and evil, a world of the ideal and the non-ideal. As you grow you realise that life is full of shades of grey. The reality of today may not hold true tommorrow. The close friend who is now only a notch above being an acquaintance, this highly pessimistic person who has a virtual reservoir of compassion for other people and the auto-rickshaw wallah who will bargain crazily over fares but will tell you stories of how he left his village in Bihar. There is no good person and no evil person. Both dwell in each of us.
