My Experiments with Jhooth

Pardon the bad pun in the title, you see, I'm good with bad puns and other mokkai. Anyhoo, coming straight to the point, how many of us can say with conviction that we've never lied, never had to make up stories just so that you could save your sorry ass. Not many out there are they?
Parents lie to their children to protect them from reality, friends lie to each other so that they can remain friends, lovers lie (again, no pun intended :p) just so that they don't end up flinging hard objects at one another, corporations lie to employees so that their "employee retention"  level stays high., politicians make a career out of lying and I lie so that I don't end up in a soup. I don't see why honesty is the best policy. It certainly doesn't do any wonders for me. If it was, then, the Jaswant Singh would not have paid so dearly for being forthcoming in his opinion. I digress. So, as I was saying, fibbing through my teeth has saved me more times than I can even count. I'm so good at it that, sometimes, I even end up lying to myself. I fool myself into believing whatever tricks my mind plays on me. I can imagine what thoughts would run in your mind the next time you are speaking to me.. Gotcha! ha ha...

I think... what you hide and what you reveal to a person defines the relationship you have with them :)
