You don’t get to the top without pissing off people along the way...

If you take a look at history, even the greatest of men/women could not escape the controversies. Whether the controversies arose during their lifetime or after they had departed is immaterial. M.K. Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Steve Jobs, Anna Hazare, Kiran Bedi etc have faced the mud smearing campaign launched by a few fanatics. If you listen to the World leaders, they will tell you for a fact that - "You don’t get to the top without pissing off people along the way."

I have wondered about this for long and have come up with two theories regarding this. A couple of Aasthik's theories eh?

Lets begin with the first theory which will try to prove why this happens - meaning why a few people always get irritated even from the noblest of work. We will need two laws of physics for this:

1. Law of conservation of Energy
2. Energy Mass-equivalence, i.e., E=m*c*c;

From these two we can deduce that everything in this Universe is Energy [since mass is a form of energy]. Now when you are doing some good or great or a noble job, you are actually redistributing this energy. Since the sum total energy is a constant, you just transfer it between resources, places, forms and people. As a result when you give the world a better thing, you have actually taken it from the same world. A few people lost out. And this set of people are the ones who aren't happy and are complaining or carrying our their mud-smearing campaign.

I think its pretty logical explanation if you think clearly. :)


The Second theory deals with the fact that the first theory has its limitation and can be turned around. Another theory of science tells us that the universe cannot exist unless you have a mind entering into it! [Ref: Documentary: The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know?.]

This theory of Mind over matter is present with most of the religions and specially in Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism deals with this by calling Universe as Maya. It tells us that Universe actually does not exist. It is just the perception of the mind. This concept has been well illustrated in the movie series Matrix Trilogy.

Basically speaking, everything and anything is possible if we chose to believe in it; which means that the Laws of Physics are not same as the Laws of the Nature and Laws of the Universe and that the so called Laws of Physics can be challenged.

To conclude, one must follow the true desires of his/her heart in order to something Good for the Society. I am Aasthik - a true believer in God, Goodness and Goodwill - and I am here to tell you one thing - Keep up the good work going and you'll shine like a star - in this world and the after world.
