Black and White

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 24; the Twenty-Fourth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for this month is BLACK AND WHITE.

Is there anything like Black and White? I was thinking on this from the instant blog-a-ton announced the topic, and I quizzed myself day and night and actually was not very convinced on the very existence of something black or white. Of course they are colors and exist as the two extremes of its nuance. The point of discussion lies in whether there are two extremes to anything. Let me take an example to put it and that too of colors, we all have seen the night without moon as the dark night or the black night. But are we sure that the night that day was the darkest or the blackest night. When you would see it the other day, you may find it darker or lighter or darker or from the end of somebody’s imagination darker than the darkest; but you may face some hesitation in defining the darkest of the darkest night.

There are no extremes to anything in this world be it a pretty girl (you can always find a more pretty girl), be it a good movie, (you always find a better one the next day),be it a good job (there is always a better one, waiting for you), be it a tasty food and that too with the same chef ( you will always find it more tasty or less the next day). These extremes are just defined as a word in our language to see a relative difference. Even in mathematics, we say that there are two limits 0 and ∞ (infinity), or -∞ and +∞ but in real sense it is not achievable .

Let us also say that two extremes exist to every thing around , but then I think that it would defy the nature’s law of a constant change. How would you feel that you get the best dress one day, and then the other day you are unable to get a better one from that best dress. It can be better put in like this there is always better than the best.

There are so many colors blue, orange, red, green, yellow, magenta, etc fill up your life with any shade of color you want, and I am sure you will always be happy in your life. Whenever you feel that you are going towards any extreme just think about Madhubala, Sridevi,Madonna,Kate Winslet, Madhuri Dixit, Angelina Jolie, Katrina Kaif…etc and there are more to come, but not the best one, always the better one.

Be the better person in your life.

  4. An extreme is an ideal. To be better, we need to have a goal, no matter how unreachable it may be. We would always keep trying to be perfect. All the best for BAT.
