Drawing Parallels.





"The only situation in which it would be justified for me to kill a man who was trying to kill me would be if I were incapable of killing a man. Any man."

"Only then, of course, I wouldn't be able to kill him."
~ Aseem Kaul



“The only situation in which it would be justified for me to point a finger to a man’s mistakes would be when I made no mistakes myself.”

“Only then of course, I would not want to point fingers to that man. Any man.”

If only people incorporated it in real life, the world would be a better place.
Not many of us look inwards and introspect...

Anita :) said...

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

It's but a selfish motive which might do good to others too.

Tanishka said...

I know that its something really serious but somehow it reminded me of my school days... When we were in school and we used to fight and end up pointing fingers, how conveniently we used to say put your hand down coz three fingers are pointing towards you.... How innocent we were then and how simple it was to sort things out...

As always your post managed to bring a smile to my face....

♥ Solitaire ♥ said...

you just can't KILL !
Only God will judge wrong and right !
its his work because yes, everyone make mistakes..
if not, you're GOD !

Vivek said...

A nice thought , As hurting someone is a big sin which kind of do knowing or unknowingly ..can be justified but killing someone can't be justified at all ..especially innocent people , I often think where this new disease is talking the world.

Rek said...

I love how you used the perfect word twists to get the message across...have you tried to substitute the original killing quote verbatim on the finger one?
we point out those mistakes, many a time which we are afraid of making/ made already...and how many of those finger experts like their howlers being pointed out?

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

@Tanishka
It actually is a beautiful way of saying something much more profound. :)

@Solitaire
Hmm... could be true. But it is but human to try.

@Vivek
:)

@Rek
I've just tried to draw a parallel line.

Sh@s said...

If only each one of us could understand the meaning of these words this world could have been a lot better place to be in.

Felicity said...

I can't believe you're 22.

Keya said...

Profound. Couldnt agree more !!
Been visiting your blog since last week. Liking it :)

Enchanta said...

The people who doubt other's honesty are the most dishonest people themselves.

Beautiful thoughts.

Enchanta said...

*others'

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

:Sh@s
might be true. :)

@Felicity
But I do believe that your pencils sketch magic. :)

@Keya
Thank You.

@Dimitri
Yes, and I am the worst of the lot. :D

Wow...what an imagination....
Totally justified title...and gr8 post

Usama Rehman said...

indeed quite insightful!
you have trapped one big idealogy of life in just a few words....Awesome!!

Angel said...

Anshul...reading it i remembered certain line which says that its alright to point a finger to somebody else but just be sure that those fingers are clean :) As always a deep thought provoking post of yours.

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

@Restless
Thank You.

@Punam
You shifted to wordpress?

@Valli
Thank You.

@Usama
Many have done it, before me too. I am just borrowing words.

@Angel
Yes. But when they are clean, you would not want to point them :)

Rose said...

Brilliant! It's a legit inference you have drawn.

That goes to show how you just need a few words to make an impact on someone. :)

Punam said...

@Anshul: Yes :)

Snow Leopard said...

:) But difficult to inculcate. As they say, "to err is human, to blame it on others is more human"

jojofeelings said...

words... we all say and listen to... it's the incorporation in life that is needed.
great post.
