There is nothing good or bad, only thinking makes it so

MBA aspirants may be asked to write essay before GD & PI. Today, you will read Essay on:  
 
"There is nothing good or bad, only thinking makes it so"
 
William Shakespeare conveyed in one of his plays, the Hamlet, that “There is nothing good or bad, only thinking makes it so”. It is true that we label certain events as good as certain events as bad. It is because we have been taught from a young age to differentiate good from bad.
 
These terms are subjective in nature. What is considered good for one person can be bad for another. Our interpretations of events are based on our cultural backgrounds and upbringing, which shape our thinking.
 
For example, in India, killing a cow and eating beef are considered bad because Indians worship cows. However, outside India, eating beef and killing cows is common and not considered bad.
 
Beef is a form of diet, and is a delicacy. So, why is it that Indians consider the killing of cows wrong whereas people abroad just view cows as food? This is because from young, Indians have been socialized into thinking that a cow represents the symbol of Dharma. This is not so for other races and religions.
 
Good and bad occurrences are classified by the behavior of the majority of the population. So, if an event occurs only in the minority of the population, it is considered taboo. For example, in the past, a marriage between people of the same gender was considered taboo by people all around the world.
 
Today, societies are slowly accepting such marriages, although they are still frowned upon to a certain extent. The fact that the viewpoints of people are changing shows that our classification of things in society are based on our thoughts, which can be altered from time to time; they are not fixed.
 
Many things that were considered taboo in the past are not necessarily bad today. In modern India, we see an increase in the number of inter caste marriages, a change in the dressing sense of women and a change in people’s lifestyles in general. This is because no event or occurrence is bad or good. It is only based on our thinking, which is fluid in nature, shaped by the forces of society.
