We tend to think in terms of extremities. Good and bad; evil and pious; brave and coward; black and white.
Reality in life is hardly defined in extremes. A guy could be good and bad at the same time, in different capacities and contexts. A generally coward person may surprisingly exhibit courageous behavior under certain circumstances. I have seen in my life a very diverse combination of attributes in people; I assume this would be a common human experience.
It makes me smile when Mullahs term me as a ‘secular’ without having the slightest idea about my personal life and background. At other times, secular/atheist people have recurrently termed me a ‘mullah.’ So much for the human tendency to think in terms of extremities.
I can relate to the feeling that may have inspired the great poet Baba Bhulley Shah to come up with his masterpiece, 'Bhulla ki Jaana mai kon?' - 'Bhulla, How do I determine who am I?'
