Let’s always be Truthful

Dead Editor,
Through the medium of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to state that Truthfulness is a great virtue and a great voice. Truth is the oldest of all the virtues antedated to man, it lived before there was man to perceive it or to accept it. Truthfulness is the greatest and most important of all human virtues. Truthfulness means to speak the truth habitually. A truthful man will never tell a lie. He always says what he means. I have experienced that in speech, the man who makes Truth his watchword is careful in his words, he seeks to be accurate, neither understating nor over-colouring. Telling yourself the truth can be the best habit you can develop, and asking questions and talking things through with yourself can be the easiest and quickest way to establish this habit. We ourselves tell lies, half-truths, and anything but the pure truth every day. No one likes to tell lie but we feel being dishonest with others and ourselves is sometimes easier than telling the truth. In life, learning to be honest and eliminating the need for lies can help to clean up your conscience and your relationships. Sometimes we feel that our confidence lives with us and it is permanent part of who we are but with enough lies we keep the greatest force of confidence silent. Truthfulness has proven to be a more successful life strategy than lieing. A truthful man has strength of mind. He is not afraid of any body. He is never ready to suffer by speaking the truth. Truth has a great power and it is the rock foundation of every great character. Ancient Indians were noted for their truthfulness. We know the examples of Yudhishtra and Harishchandra. Harishchandra sacrificed everything for the sake of truth. As truthfulness is a great virtue, truthfulness is a great voice too.
