Black or White?


All of us have seen movies where the superheroes defeat the supervillains and save the world. But,is it so that superheroes are full of benevolence and villains are made of malice? Is everything either all-black or all-white?

1/6 Struggling to stand in the war against her alter-ego,she had started to lose her own identity.An optimistic girl was succumbing to the darkness of her own self…so much so that she started hating the light.Every single ray of light felt piercing through her body and left her in the pain beyond the limits of being bearable.

2/6  She was on the verge of losing this fight. Her dark side had started to overpower all the light within her. Fallen on her knees, she had almost surrendered herself to her alter-ego. 

3/6 She could see through the seemingly beautiful cage that she had been locked in, her alter-ego looking her in the eyes. She looked exactly same as her, yet, something was totally different. To the world, she was a girl of values, who was empathetic and caring. Her alter-ego, on the other side, was wild and diabolical, that always opposed the social maxims and was full of lust, hate and revenge.

4/6 As her body felt limp, exhausted by the battle, she started asking what were they fighting for? Why was she struggling to defeat her own alter-ego, who shared the same body with her? Both of them were the different sides of the same person. Then why did they have to dispel each other? Was it fruitful to that person they were representing or to them in any way? 

5/6  NO! It came to both of them in an epiphany. Then why not stop antagonising one another and work in harmony? After all, light has no existence without the darkness. One cannot appreciate the cleanliness unless one has disgusted the dirt and mess. 

6/6 Finally they had learnt to live with each other peacefully. It was as if all the broken parts of her had fallen into the right place. She realised that nothing is either pure white or entirely black, because everything in this world is a different shade of grey.

Villians lie towards the darker side and heroes stay towards the lighter side, but there no clearly defined boundaries for them. So yeah, everybody is a hero…and a villain too! However, it all depends upon you which side you want to nourish. So, which shade of grey would you prefer to be?
