Jahandost is an ‘idiot’: Reason # 1

3 11 2007

One of the most lovable (and may be even pitiable) character in world literature is Dostoevsky’s The Idiot. Prince Myshkin is sincere in his heart and thus he is taken advantage of by other people and thus he is an idiot. Jahandost does not claim to be as pure of heart or likeable as Prince Myshkin but Jahandost can be an ‘idiot’ nonetheless, at least some of the time. So there was a friend was in desperately in need of some help and had some problem in rent, so Jahandost stepped in since no one else was willing to do so. ‘Of couse’ he would pay back Jahandost at the end of the month but ‘of course’ the friend left the country at the end of the month and then refused to pay back Jahandost. This is so because he will not be getting the money (the security deposit) that he was supposed to give to Jahandost as it has been confiscated (because of fines) and now it would be ‘unjust’ for him to pay Jahandost. This is despite the fact that Jahandost also paid the fine and not getting the security deposit. So basically Jahandost ended up effectively paying the other person’s rent. Afterall aren’t we supposed to supposed to help our brothers and sisters in time of need? Yes we are; even if they think that we are idiots when we help.

So, “Whatever happened to brotherhood?” Now do you know why I am the way I am.

I hope youve learnt your lesson jahandost. Be very careful before lending or borrowing money from someone, no matter who it is! Like shakespeare said ” never be a borrower or a lender be”

Peace.

Salaams Jahandost,

It’s sad when people rip us off. But, giving redounds to the credit of the giver, whereas theft and deception will bring this person naught but misery in the end.

Ya Haqq!
