"When a person hits you once, it is his mistake,
When the same person hits you twice, it is your mistake."
- The Vedas
We are responsible for our deeds, our actions, our perceptions, our negligences, our ignomicity and our sluggishness throughout our life. We must introspect and reintrospect anything which is put before us, not merely give it a glance and let it go at that. The dormancy which surrounds us from within has to be penetrated to get a first-hand knowledge about an action which may later turn into inaction, just because of the lack of our deliberation. We do, we perform small actions round the clock, but many a time, we prefer to keep our consciousness away, which costs us everything.
Similar is the case of our behavior towards other persons, may be our parents, well-wishers, friends,etc. We behave the way we like, with them disregarding the dire consequences we may creep into. What we need is 24X7 consciousness and alertness in playing the role we have been assigned to on this world's stage (referring to Shakespeare's quote -'The world is a stage and all men are merely actors.'). We must visualise our way of presentation in front of the audience (single person, or more), lest we regret it later. Note, a stitch in time saves nine. We are required to present our thoughts in an unambiguous manner, lacking all types of vagueness.
