As a matter of fact, Liberty is a very misunderstood word. People think, it is their Liberty to do what they like in their house,it is their liberty to eat what they like, It is their liberty to sleep when they want to sleep,it is their liberty to dress up the way it pleases them, it is their liberty to listen the music they like, it is their liberty to party in their house till wee hours. THE LIST IS ENDLESS OF SUCH LIBERTY CLAIMS. Well,I have nothing against people’s liberty as mentioned above.It is perfectly okay – Nothing wrong.
BUT, BUT LIBERTY COMES WITH A RESPONSIBILITY AND TO EXPLAIN IT, I WILL TELL YOU A STORY.
Mr Swaminathan and Mr Bhandari were staying in Mumbai in the same apartment and they were neighbors. Mr Bhandari often use to return home late evening and was fond of listening to loud music at a very high pitch. This was his daily routine. Mr Swaminathan used to badly get upset with this loud music because he could not sleep.But he kept his patience and tolerated this loud music for two weeks in the hope that better sense will prevail with his neighbor and things will improve.But that did not happen.
Mr Swaminathan decided to take up this matter with his neighbor and one night,while the loud music was going on,he knocked at the door of Mr Bhandari,who opened the door.Mr Swaminathan requested Mr Bhandari to keep the volume of the music low,because he could not sleep with such a loud music. Mr Bhandari said,Mr Swaminathan,I am in my own house and I have the full liberty to enjoy the music the way I like and this should not bother you.To this,Mr swaminathen told-Mr Bhandari! If it is your liberty to listen to such a loud music in your house,it is my liberty to sleep peacefully in my house!!
SO,YOUR LIBERTY ENDS WHEN YOU START INTERFERING WITH MY LIBERTY.
Mr Bhandari realized his mistake and apologized to Mr Swaminathan. He also promised Mr Swaminathan that, henceforth,he would exercise his liberty with due responsibility and not cause disturbance in his sleep.
MESSAGE-YOUR LIBERTY COMES WITH A RESPONSIBILITY.ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS!!
