We, The Slaves of Destiny

We, The Slaves of Destiny

We, The Slaves of Destiny

By Rishika Desai

Destiny is a word that has led most of us into a dilemma that should we work or should we not? It’s prevailing since ancient times that you get what’s written in your destiny. So people take it in two ways, to make the best of it by giving it a tough grind or to let the luck take its course. In olden days, all the saints and sages have preached that a person has his destiny prewritten right from his birth to death. So, the question arises that- why should we struggle for something that we are already going to get?

It is because everyone is going to get what written in their destiny, and honestly no one can have an escape from it. It’s something inevitable course that has to happen in your life. Indeed, you get a chance to blame your luck or fortune that has made you into today. You have seen a flower blooming on concrete pavements and wilting in dense forests. But have you ever thought of a thin line between destiny and fate?

Man is certainly the slave of his destiny but not of his fate. For instance, a human being a thief for a living can be prewritten in his stars, but for him to continue working for it is his destiny! You see people blame their destiny for not achieving success is completely right, as it was their inadequacy of understanding the two diverging terms. You can put all your hard work into a thing and even upturn your fate and even it's proven, take any scripture. Man is able to alter his destiny through his thoughts and actions. Slavery can be swapped with mastery. Undoubtedly, your fate decides who you’re going to be, but it’s your destiny that’ll decide how you’re going to be!
