“V for VenDeTTa”

V for Vendetta/vengeance/vindiction are the most dangerous bugs from the evil Pandora’s box.

Among all the negative feelings in a person’s head,revenge is the purest notion.The effortless power of this verb can have critical consequences.

Be it the creation of facebook or the implantation of bombs in Hiroshima-Nagasaki,this emotion consistently proves its superiority on the human brain(s).Ofcorse,this doesn’t mean every insane mind, thirsty for vengeance will always end up doing an assassination or an invention,but its definately mind boggling.

As a child if you’ve ever tried snatching ur friend’s candy(which I always did :P),his instant reaction would be snatching your share and in a more notorious case you’ll also be gladly rewarded with a kick or a facepunch (which my buddy always did :P)

Not that this feeling comes inbuilt in a Sapien,much of it is because it is superhyped.From Tom n’ jerry to Angry birds,all of us are quite familiar to its ambience.

But Real life is verdictless.We have to mark our own checkboxes.There are phases when the angry bird inside us drives us to vengeful actions and just like how the game is played it can either be fully planned or a gut feeling.

But is it always about winning the game?Is it always a righteous deed?I agree revenge comes with enormous satisfaction but two wrongs do not make a right.
When god created revenge,he also created forgiveness.
If revenge brings satisfaction,forgiveness brings peace.

I might be the person who hooted the most when I saw Avengers defeating Loki.
However,my personal opinion still says “every action has an equal n’ opposite reaction” is only true as long as it is applied in physics.
So whether its an eye for an eye or a tit for tat,they are not just idioms.They are huge,life costing phrases.Think before you start believing in them.! 🙂

P.S.: If you got your hopes high that it was a movie review,then me is sorry.Well,sorry for you 😛

  1. eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, soon the world will be both blind and toothless xD

    well said, think before you believe. Well said. 🙂

  2. Nice piece.
    But isn’t Revenge necessary in Life, for that Spark for that Extra Edge which makes Sapiens better. It’s not that I’m all Pro-Revenge, but a revenge-less life would be a lot less bechancing and a lot less enriching.

    1. Thank you 😉
      Revenge and forgiveness go hand in hand.We both know that the world we live in is neither revenge-less nor forgiveness-less.I’m just trying to address a view which supports forgiveness when we find ourselves stuck in this mind conflict.
