90% Truth ... 10% Lies ...

"Peter, With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility. Never forget that." I wanted to start this week's blog with that Movie Line because I somehow relate to that. Every week I get more and more people waiting to read My blog and it is My duty to give them a good read every Sunday. Yes, I know I am late, again and for that I truly apologize. Well, you know Me, I always have a reason. But I will make it a point to write My next entry on time next time. I am right now under the weather. I have a soar throat and a running nose but since yesterday, I am feeling better today and that is why I think I have the strength to get up from My bed and write this week's blog. Yes, the Awards Function was amazing! Infact, more than I thought it could be! I interacted with some of the biggest names in the industry and I also got the chance to make some wonderful friends! So My Shout-Out Feature this week goes to all My New Friends! Thank you for becoming a part of My Life. :-)

There was a time when I was addicted to My Blackberry and whenever I saw a person {especially girls} carry a BB, I use to make it a point to exchange BB Pins. Well, now, even though I have a BB I am no longer an addict of the BB Pin. Now, I ask everyone for their email addresses so that I can send My Blog Entries every week! As they say, times change and people change along with them. But I guess more than changing I am evolving. Knowing what really matters to Me and each day I become a better person. Well, I hope so. To be honest, writing these Blogs just doesn't give My view point to the world, it some how also gives Me the strength to be Honest about Myself to the world and in a way, even to Myself. So here goes ...

As I just mentioned above, about being Honest. Well, yes, I am becoming honest with Myself and with you guys but am I, really? I mean do I have the courage to be absolutely black and white with the world?To tell them every single thing about Myself? I guess that is a Big NO-NO! I mean, come on, you don't expect Me to tell Me everything now, do you? Like for example what I did last night? Or with whom I was last night? Or am I in love or not? Or you know, what color underwear I am wearing? Some of you must think, "Hell Yeah! We will really like that!" But the truth is that no one can 100% truthful. Even if we try. I know I don't. And there are many reasons to that. Sometimes it is fear. Fear that you may sound weak and small. Sometimes it is insecurity. Insecurity that if I tell her who I truly am, she may not like Me. Or sometimes it is just the fact that you wanna show the other person that you are the most amazing human being on the planet! Some of My readers are also My friends and who know Me very closely and whenever they read My entries they message Me that I am a hypocrite and a Liar. That what I show the world is only a farce. Well, those things are true. But so are the things that I write here.

Don't get Me wrong, I am not here to justify Myself. I have done bad things too. I have cheated. I have lied and I have hurt many people, people who cared for Me. Intentionally or unintentionally. Today, when I think of all the things that I have done, I don't feel bad. Not because I have no emotions. It is because all those things that I am a better person today. My mistakes have made Me come closer to My Self-Truths. That if I lied once and hurt someone, then I shouldn't do it again and that can only happen if I have the courage to be a little more truthful than last time. As they say, 'Honesty is the best policy.' Now, little by little, step by step, I have come this close to My Truths. Yes, I do lie but in comparison to the truth it is only a mere 10% of it.

So yes, whenever you read my blogs again in the future, you will know that what I am writing is only the 90% truth, not the whole truth because write right now I only have 90% of the courage to be honest with you guys. There are still somethings that I fear. There are still somethings that hold Me back. But hey, the 90% truth is better than 50% truth, right? Every week, I try to convey a message to all of you. This week, all I am asking is try to be truthful. To anyone you meet, no matter what relation that person will be having with you, 'cause as they say, 'The truth shall set you free.' :-) And try to be as truthful as you can be. Free will was given us by god for a reason so I can't promise you that everyone who hears your truth will love you and hug you and accept you. They may even despise you or even hate you for it. But in time, I promise you this, they will respect you because out of all the people out there, you were among the few who had the courage to be truthful to them. Even if it was the 90% truth. :-)

This is Me, Mahaakshay Chakraborty and this is My Story.
