No Good deed...

In the midst of an important checkin, as I logged into one of my systems, this MOTD flashed and there was a strong urge to share it with you... right away!
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!
(- Clare Booth Luce)

What a wonderfully correct statement in, what is called in
Hindu Mythology, Kali Yuga, that is, in this modern pitilessness world, filled only with greed, war, fight, cruelty, lust & corruption! Be good to people and one day or the other, they screw you left-right, top-bottom-and-center; take you for granted; consider you to be a pushover.
I cannot agree more with Luce. Not that I'm being anti-social, nor am I propogating inhuman qualities, but just expressing one point of view.

Hi Atul

We've interacted earlier, and have been following your blog pretty closely and not to mention, am impressed immensely!

Ofcourse No Good Deed Goes Unpunished, guess this is the only way to ascertain that the Deed and the Person were/are Good!!!

Keep Up the Good Work!

i don't agree.. i feel : achhe logonke saath kabhi kuch boora ho hi nahi sakata :) Then let it be Kaliyug or anything :)

What you sow, so shall you reap... Do good to others and good automatically will come back to you.
May not be in the same form. Why do you want to expect something in return from the same person/thing? It may come in a different form. Its all balancing of energies in the universe. All the good things happening to you could actually be the returns of the good deeds that you may have done in the past... Think about it :-)
I am fwding you something that i have written few yrs back over this thought. Check it out ...
