The secret is simple – fairness. Fairness is the secret formula for all success. Fairness can open doors to opportunities that you did not know existed. But of course, this is a truth that all of us know. Here is a quick look at the amazing principle of fairness.
Why does fairness work?
From time immemorial, man (and woman) has used his wisdom to discern between good and evil. Day is good, night is evil; white is good, black is evil; clear is good, muddied is evil. For reasons beyond our comprehension, we are not comfortable with the principle of goodness without an evil to contrast it against. With the subsequent expansion of “civilization” and the “discovery” of the lands of the unfair, the fair people finally got proof that this was how the creator meant things to be. Otherwise, it would have been the unfair who discovered the fair, innit?
This belief has been nurtured and perpetrated down the ages, till it has become ingrained within us. It was the fair that gave our nation the first taste of modernity, in education, in governance, and in healthcare. It was the fair who were at the forefront of the newly formed nation of ours. It was the fair who have given leadership to our country. The only time that we were stuck with a leader who was not fair was when a person who knew more than a dozen languages had nothing to say. That’s “not fair” for you. Of course, the fact that a new and different (as good as alien) kind of fairness was being groomed is beside the point. Over time, fairness, indigenous or otherwise, has been proved to be the touchstone by which all things and people are judged.
How does fairness work?
Fairness works on the principle of cause and effect. If you are fair, you will automatically do the right thing, make the right decision, and take the right path. It might seem inconvenient in the short run, but your fairness will bear fruit in the long run. Being fair is simply being in accordance with the principles of nature. People who are not fair might seem to be making gains but in the long run, they will lose out. See the consequences of being unfair below.
I was not born fair. Can I become fair?
Not being born fair is the result of past karma. Your parents must be either unfair people themselves, or have done some very unfair things in their lives, as a result of which you are unfair too. The other possibility is that you were a very evil person in your previous birth. There is no way you can escape from the fact that you have been born unfair. At best, you can try and capitalize on the reservations and quotas that the fair have made for your type. However, there are steps that you can take to become less unfair in this lifetime. The first step you have to take is to publicly disown your unfair self. You can do this by cutting your hair short, wearing long overcoats and always carrying a large handbag. This must immediately be followed by a conscious decision to dissociate from all things and people that are unfair. If you practice this diligently, in the course of time, you may be eligible to be counted among the fair.
Fairness is like religion. You may be born without it, but there are many who will help you acquire it. You might lose it once you have it, but you can get it back with a dab of foundation and a flick of the compact. The best part of it is that you can lose it over and over again, and get it back every single time. Remember, public memory is short, and no one wants to remember things that are not fair for too long, so just go for it.
How to become fair?
Some ways of becoming fair are easy, some are not, but all of them are fair. The easy way to become fair is to use fairness creams. Remember that one cannot become fair overnight, nor is there one surefire formula for becoming fair. You have to use these creams day and night on a regular basis, and keep using different brands of them, in order to get result. Also keep in mind that you need one kidney to survive, so don’t go about selling the second one to buy those products. You must also be careful not to overuse them, since you might just wake up one morning and find that all the ammonia in them has bleached your face away. Of course, then you will not have to worry about where to hide your face, since you will no longer be having a face to hide. During this process, since you have already disowned your unfair self publicly, if you need to make a public appearance, you will have to resort to foundations and face powders that are meant for fair people. If you use the less fair versions of these, you will be rejected by those you care for, so be very cautious.
Fairness goes deeper than the skin, so just using fairness creams is not enough. You have to shun all the ways of unfair people. Three excellent educational aids for achieving this are the all season DVD packs of Friends, Desperate Housewives, and Sex and the City. Study these carefully and try and personify the superior values that they promote. Many people make the mistake of discarding their unfair accents and adopting a fairer one. This strategy can backfire and people might think that you are nothing but an unfair person with lot of makeup who works in an outbound call center. However, if your speech is anything like mine, with a preponderance of aiyo’s, haila’s, and why because’s, you may want to go for an accent training program, and mind your pee’s and kaiku’s.
What are some of the consequences of not being fair?
If you are not fair, you will not be able to sing well at college functions. You will not get interviews with stars if you are a television newsperson. If you are not fair, you will end up paying more dowry. If you are not fair, no one will complain if you do not burn with an even blue flame. If you are not fair, your chances of being in an accident engineered by the fair multiply. If you are not fair, you may succeed in the short run, but sooner or later, your unfairness will catch up with you, and you will be eating crow, maybe Jim Crow. Even the best of education, the most expensive jewelry and the best designer clothes cannot help you if you are not fair.
But surface level jokes and double entendre's aside, if you are fair, the world might look past you, you may be ignored when opportunities arise, and people might reject you, but you will sleep well knowing that you have done the right thing. If you are not fair, on the other hand, you might get a high score in an exam, but have already flunked the real test of life.
