    • Hi Jaya ji 🙂

    • Ankit

  • Piku

    UPSC in its essay paper puts forth a variety of topics and not just quotes. Insights, if you really want to give us practice, understand UPSC’s flavour in asking questions. No point giving quotes every week and fooling people with your so-called initiatives.

    • minaxi

      Dear.. I think Insight is doing it’s best.. However philosophical quotas are it’s favorite. But UPSC also have a taste for it. have a Nice day.. 🙂

      • Piku

        I am listing the topics of this year’s mains. How many quotes can you see? And how directly they are framed? What insights is doing is making a list of proverbs and quotes and giving it every sunday. This is really far from what UPSC has to ask.

        Lending hands to someone is better than giving a dole.
        Quick but steady wins the race.
        Character of an institution is reflected in its leader.
        Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make a man more clever devil.
        Technology cannot replace manpower.
        Crisis faced in India – moral or economic.
        Dreams which should not let India sleep.
        Can capitalism bring inclusive growth?

        • minaxi

          Thanks Here four are quotas.. I am also in favor of diversity of topics… But it do not diminishes the importance of quotas as essay Topic.
          Thank you… Hope to see a topic from socio-economic issue. 🙂

          • Piku

            Quotations are important. But such direct ones and simple ones are never asked. My point is we should practice according to the trend. Because ultimately, we have to give UPSC’s exam and not Insights’. I hope you understand. 🙂

            • Pikuji review kar dena 😀
              and quotes are also important 🙂

        • Michael

          hey bro/sis… first of all congratulations for clearing mains and i wish you find your name in final list too…
          this forum is keeping us on track.. whatever “insight is doing ” is giving us a platform for regular practice.. i think essay requires vocab, grammer,flow, structure and not to mention content… we can find a lot of sources for this food.. but we people learn a lot here… vocabulary,phrases and a lot more… so you might endorse or ridicule something thats your concern.. but what’s the point?
          anyways dont be offended..god bless you

      • Minaxiji review kar dena mera! 🙂

        • minaxi

          Sure Sir Lord…

      • Prash

        hi…kindly review my essay..

    • aashish 2000

      Dear piku,
      Blaming insights is not the option…Please use your right to speech carefully in public forum….. If you dont feel like, topics are not upto the mark of UPSC..you must suggest instead of pointing out…
      See my friend, you or me or insights cant able to judge the pattern of questions in coming exam… So I suggest you to consider it for writing practice and transform your way of approaching..

      • Piku

        My simple point was that these topics that Insights is giving will never appear in any form in our question papers, unlike secure questions that helped us approach the GS papers this December.
        And this right to speech and all are separate things, I just stated my point which is quite valid if you take a broader picture in concentration with respect to the UPSC exam.

        • aashish 2000

          I do consider the broader picture my friend… I understand your view, I only commented on your tone of suggestion….It represents a demand tone instead of request…

          • Piku

            Yeah, maybe!
            Because while writing GS papers, I felt that secure questions made me frame and write answers well. But essay initiatives didnt help me in the Mains. 🙂

            • aashish 2000

              See my friend….These initiatives are for Utilitarian perspective.. It may not helped you or me.. but it might help someone….
              I wish you good luck and hope to see your name on Insights Succeeded Candidate list…this year…

            • Piku

              I mean writing and practicing definitely helps but if the quality of topics is improved, output can be better.

              • aashish 2000

                I do agree with you..and I prefer the usage of language in the above post, is different to your main post…..Our fellow aspirants and friends are opposing the tone not the content you stated…..
                We always support the change… Change is essential commodity for us…

    • Under Article 19 you are free to write or not write philosophical essays. Even if you don’t, people will keep writing. So instead of blaming, try to diversify your options. Section A this time were all philosophical quotes. Thank u 🙂

    • Bhokal

      Dear Piku,

      Insights donot want you to be limited on the specific topic.

      Whenever u write an essay you have to write multidimensional points.
      If u think this is simple topic then I think you have to study and practice more and more.

      Quotes help you in two ways :-

      (1) Remembering quote to put in essays.
      (2) Explore the internal meaning of the sentence from multidimensions.

      About the trend :

      Every year in UPSC minimum 2-3 questions are from philosophical quotes, 2 questions from education and technology and 2 questions from economic.
      Can u write essays on science and technology without paragraphs of society, polity and history.

      The quotes help you to explore the multidimensions. So better keep practicing with clear approach in mind. Dont stick to the logic that in technology related topic, you have to write only technological facts.

      I am noone to judge you or suggest you so if you disagree then plz dont waste ur time on further commenting.

      And you have to right to blame Insights like this, because you are not paying Insights for anything. So stop stooling out ur frustrations here.
      If you want any initiative to be changed then request Insights humbly. I hope you understand.

      Thanks
      An IAS Aspirant

    While playing with father in a playground, Rekha jumped from a plateau intentionally where her father caught her. The only thing stucked in the mind of Rekha is Trusting her father. Trust can be described in different ways in different situation, but defining it is universal. Trust is a firm belief which tagged with reliability. It also facilitates secrecy which is unique to this term. The only thing which is complex is gaining trust involves thousands of hours, but losing it can take only seconds. Every person in their life should trust someone or something to move on in their lives.

    For instance, a person from the initial stage builds trust on parents and viceversa. In later stage, focus shift from parents to friends and later on some institutions to get the things done and move on. At individual level, it takes prior importance with social relationships. Whether it is a partner or friend or parents the impact of breaking it is more severe and can be a threat to life. Economically, individual believe in economic institutions with economic interest. The impact of breaking trust at economic level is quite bareable than social. Usually, people see the low trust factor at political level due to unambiguous circumstances.

    Subsequently, from our Human history it is evident that Trust plays a keyrole as a deciding factor of kingdoms and civilisation. For instance, Sayyid Brothers in Indian history act as a trust factor for Faruk Siyar to held the throne. Trust takes many years to build, because attaining it requires truth, honesty and reliability. India trusted China in the early post independence period and paved the way for the permanent seat at UNSC. But invade by china into Indian territory shattered the trust of India, after many decades still India perceive China as a threat suited as best example of importance of trust.
    In a like manner, at organisation level, a strong group with trust factor which build up that for years, produce promising results than the other groups which lacks it. Sometimes trust comes with necessity. For instance, India in 1991 Balance of Payment crisis accepted the rules by IMF as a necessity to bail out the crisis. Later on with time, and the efficient condition of economy developed the trust on the rules were accepted.

    Furthermore, trust is a questionable factor in a political sphere. Though with long period of time, it is quite complex to attain trust in this sphere. The irrational behaviour, nepotism and favouritism are the roadblocks for the trust factor to gain. For instance, US policy of snooping on other countries will effect the relationships and can wake up into serious threat to the nation itself. Though Indian political brains didnt build up trust with Pakistan, but recent warning of attack from Pakistan ISI, accepted by India and increased security showcast India’s readiness of trust in Pakistan.

    Finally, building up of trust is an essential thing for everyone and involves time. Breaking it takes only few seconds due to the intensity of the factor Trust which deals with the issues of higher senstivity.

      Please review these few lines….

    • OPTIMUS PRIME

      bro i liked all FIVE EXAMPLES you gave about the trust…………..LIFE, HISTORY,IR,ECONOMICS,SECURITY……….GOOD ONE…

      • aashish 2000

        Thank you my friend….Looking forward to read yours…

      • Hi, kindly review my essay 🙂

      • Hey brother, review mine too when you find time 🙂

    • minaxi

      Hello Ashish beautiful lines..
      However , I think focus of trust do not shift, it is always present at the center of individual and entity. However sphere of influence widens with time, at early stage, we develop trust on individual level with our parents ans siblings subsequently with society, economy and government.
      One more thing, I find implicit in your write-up- trust is two way- first it depend upon the person who is trusting, that he is comfortable in trusting others or not(everyone do not feel like trusting others) second one is, another person to whom we are supposed to trust is credible or not. It lead to the relationship based on loyalty, and being committed is very much necessary to maintain this relationship.
      It is also necessary to have transparency and openness to maintain trust, but political and government can not have transparency for various reasons some are reasonable, therefore many times it lead to trust deficit.
      Thanks…

      • Dear Minaxi, find time to read my essay! 🙂 thank you

      • aashish 2000

        First of all thank you for the precious jewel(review)…
        I respectfully rejecting your view as everyone dont feel like trusting others…
        In this society everyone must trust others or any institution to lead the life…
        That’s what I explained in the essay.. .For example… We must trust insights(others) when we are reading anything from it…as reliable…
        I dont agree that credibility of other person depends upon you…If other one is not trustworthy, we dont take an initial step of trust… If we did..we learn the lessons…that What I portrayed in the few lines…
        I do agree that it is essay but not matching the UPSC word limit…..
        Transparency and openness are not the direct factors…for trust…I feel these are qualitative reasons which are counted while trusting…
        Looking forward to read your essay and learn more points on the topic…
        Keep reviewing….

        • minaxi

          I never said, trust s not necessary, willingly and unwillingly, every body have to trust others. Trust provide base for sustainable and smooth development. Any way, I tried to mention some issues in my essays, will post in short time.. 🙂

            It might be a typo.
            I usually type very fast hence idhar udhar Ho jaata hai 🙂

    • YdoVfall

      Trust is luxury in today’s world especially the world driven by the short-term motives and easy-returns. Many do not hold long term trust because of implicit scepticism about other party. Lehmann Brothers crash says it all. So trust in economic sphere is different.
      However, in diplomatic relations with nations, we can see the ongoing strains in relations between Saudi and US. How the trust of Saudi Arabia in considering US as all-weather friend has been belied by US Congressmen who sought to introduce bill to put Saudi in dock for 911 attacks.
      In India-Pakistan relations, trust deficit is often the case. Mutual distrust is factor that brings the relations back to square one.

      The above are few examples.
      The mention of Sayyid Brothers was not apt according to me. They only held him as a puppet and murdered him later. You could have mentioned instead Timmarusu, the Prime MInister of Sri Krishna deva raya who held his throne till he came of age. Needless to say, their combo created one of the greatest empire in the medieval history.

      India-China relations that you mentioned was a very good example. But you could have put more info about the inherent distrust about each other’s motives.

      • Hey Ydo, review mine too 🙂
        I’ll review urs too,when u write! Thanks 🙂

      • Hi Ydo, kindly review my essay 🙂 thank you

      • aashish 2000

        Intially…thank you for your precious diamond(review)
        I do agree with you partially… Because economic aspect concentrate on necessity rather than complete trust. But India’s trust on Russia rather than US….explains the importance of trust factor in economic aspect..
        I believe it has different perspectives according to the situation… I do agree it has stability in few aspects…
        Yes, In case of India and Pakistan, trust deficit but the recent actions of both the countries, move the relations ahead positively if continues on the same lines…
        I respectfully disagree with your trust as luxury…. Though we live in globalized world….. Joint business are still prosperous… As a matter of fact, if you observe… We can conclude trust is the only factor which runs the economy… For example: major business like petrol, softdrinks, steel etc comes under oligopoly which needs trust as oxygen…to maintain stability…
        Looking forward to learn from the essay written by you..

        • YdoVfall

          Yes, trust is running the economy and people have more trust on legal documents (or Contracts) than their fellow brethren. But is this trust sustainable? Or are we running economy on mutual distrust? But people are investing because some are more credible legally rather than ethically. Ex: Satyam scam. How investors’ trust was belied. (just to show a different perspective)

          The philosophies of individualism and atomism in some nations often create scepticism for any attempt for improving community relations.

          Trust is a luxury in philosophical way and not in legal language. At personal level, isn’t world moving towards mutual distrust?

          You mentioned joint businesses. If I take example of cooperatives, what is their share in the economy. Very low and haven’t taken off successfully in big way except in Scandinavian nations.
          (Sorry I can’t write essay, I’m just limiting to reviews)

          • aashish 2000

            Understood your view….Eagerly waiting to read the precious literature from you… I suggest you to write the max you can my friend….

            • YdoVfall

              Even I hope so friend. But more than trust, time is a luxury 🙂

      “URGENT” Secure 2016
      Hi ashish i am sorry to write on you thread but its important..

      Caution: Many of you may not like this post

      hello everybody,
      There is an Insight user on SECURE 2016 platform. He is a good writer no doubt. His answers are generally good. Yesterday he posted an answer. and to be frank its useless to read the way he wrote it, and people blindly upvoted him because it was funny. he generally usethese tactics to gain popularity i guess.
      now, the problem is sometimes people miss out due to some circumstances and later they refer back through the SECURE 2016 photocopies available at market. The top answers are printed in those copies .. and when the top answer is written in filmy style can we gain something from it? nooooo…
      we are here to learn from others. But did we learn anything from his answer? while we read we look into phrases,vocab,sentence,approach,structure and hell lot more things. but since such answers are on top we miss ut everything.
      Also there are people who work hard. write answers and post to get reviews and critics to improve. but since such answers are on top they dont get reviews. nobody looks at their answer..Why?
      c’mon guys we should understand that this platform is meant for learning not for publicity and Swag show off and all.. For that Facebook is already there. Yes fun should be there.. but it looks good in comments not in the main body of answer…
      there are people who cant understand hindi. Now it becomes a little roadblock for them..

      Please guys , a humble request to you all.. not to upvote ridiculous and useless answers which are just to make fun. and dont downvote good answers.
      think yourself. Please be a little serious and curious.. we can learn a lot together..

      • aashish 2000

        I do agree with your concern… I strongly recommend you to remove the name of the user…you mentioned….Its not good on your part to focus on a particular person….
        Please write the comment without hurting anyone…. My friend… you dont have any right to comment on a single person….. I request you to edit the post and re post it….

        • Lord buddha

          yes ashish… i forgot..

        • Michael

          ashish review my essay yar..

      • Sonia mehra

        Hy,

        I don’t want to comment on any individual case.
        But I acknowledge your concern and at a personal level would strive to upvote only good answers.

        Thank you.

      • YdoVfall

        Your concerns are valid. This can’t become forum for sarcasm and fun especially for Answers. Let’s leave that for TOI and other websites.
        Also no naming and shaming please

      • briganzza

        well i thought the same yesterday
        i think you would be better off writing some answers in notebook or laptop .

      • Jaya Swatantra

        yes your concerns are genuine but please re post by deleting his post .. this forum would be upvoting good answers from future.. 🙂

        • Michael

      • GODDAMN Batman!!

        C’mon.. Give him some credit. The points are actually good.. Lol
        Just kidding.. I agree with you @disqus_910zpofSOj:disqus
        🙂 While space for fun should be there, it should not replace space for serious answers..

        • Lord buddha

          exactly… i admire he got points.. but see the answer below.. they got many important points… people like us carry no laptops,we have to hit to the cybercafe for internet.. we dont have smart phones.. we depend on xerox copy of secure bhai..our hindi sucks,,, while such answers can be posted in comments of leading answer.. those who want to read can read.. but atleast it desnt go to market.. however its our discretion wether we write a funny answer or a answer the way we will be trying to write in mains,, anyways i just shared my concern… no personal enimity.. i admire his answers.. he is an established writer…i am really sorry if i have hurt someone’s sentiment… please ignore

          • GODDAMN Batman!!

            Its allright Buddy.. I guess the community should take care not to upvote such answers.. 🙂

        • Michael

          goddamn batman.. will you review my essay.. i wrote one of the worst essay of my life..

      • Oh Teri

        Anyway
        Buddhaji
        — I had written 3 answers yesterday when I thought to take a chill pill and write this answer just for fun. There was absolutely no intention to get upvotes, show some swag, become more popular (As if Insights pe main bahut popular hun..aur hoke bhi kya milega? UPSC ki seat?) or anything for that matter..i just wrote this answer in 2 minutes and went to back to watch a movie, satisfied that i had done my answer writing practise for a day

        — If you want to know as to why I do all this, why I think for a while and try to be funny or witty with every comment of mine or for that matter WHY have i taken up this character of Pandeyji to write on this forum?

        — Mera jawab ye hai ki mujhe lagta hai har UPSC aspirant mein ek normal insan chupa hai jo pure time nahi padhna chahta and thoda masti bhi kar sakta hai (I believe that every UPSC aspirant has a normal human hidden beneath him to stop studying for a while and enjoy a bit)

        — I do that so that this answer writing forum does not turn the aspirants into robots who write their answer not just to gain marks finally in the exam, but have some incentive to their daily practise in the form of small chit-chats with each other and some fun too

        And on the first place, I do that because I find myself as one of you guys. Answer writing is not a simple task. Writing a good answer in a time-bound manner exhausts you and churns your mind to throw up the knowledge it has..you need some relaxation time

        This post of yours certainly wont stop me and the kind of comments and actions I write on this forum. I do it for a reason and as far as i find that reason to be correct, I am happy and satisfied.

        Next time jab aap Pandeyji ka answer sabse zyada upvoted dekhen, toh Pandeyji ko popular hota mat samajhiyega
        AAP SAMAJHIYEGA KI AAPKE ANDAR KA CHULBUL PANDEY UPVOTE PAA RAHA HAI 🙂

        TATA!

          pandey ji… dont get angry.. the thing is there are many people who have to rely on xerox.. we belong to remotest areas.. no fone, no internet, no computer.. we visit to market once in a week or two… and my intenstions are not to hurt u stop u or snatch your popularity.. i myself couldnt write here…i follow answers of people like you… you are an established and credible writer.. the fun way we enjoy … you are right we all love fun.. if you would do in comments we would love even more. but if its in answer writing its not a loss to many of you but for many people like us… its totally your discretion bro.. no one can ca dare stp you… its just an appeal… listen or ignore.. ball is in your court..

        Secure ki Xerox?? for what? kya ab yeh sab bhi market me mil raha hai.

        • Himaanshu

          yaaa,… write the best answer and get your stuff printed for sale. hahaha……. You should seriously think about copyrights… 😉

          • Nupur

            “बहुजन हिताय बहुजन सुखाय”. but seriously i personally think that being a copycat doesn’t helps to a great extent. Just i wish UPSC ke haath me na lage ye xerox nahi to gaye kam se.hehe

            • Himaanshu

              I feel the same but dear we have the luxury of saying that. But for people living in remote areas without any access to The Hindu and internet things are bit different and very challenging. I don’t think our friends living in remote areas use these xeroxes for mugging up the answers instead they must be using this for having an idea about the ideal answer and they must be using this for evaluating their answers as well.

              – Don’t know why but I am feeling more responsible about posting anything on Insights. I had no idea that things written by us are travelling to the remotest areas of the country.

        • Lord buddha

          yeah its available.. one who miss out on secure for any reason for that matter may get back to the questions of secure.. the top answers are printed.. and people can extract some points if they dont know.. thats y upvoting the right answer means a lot.. its not about copying someone.. but its all about information some answers carry..

      • Himaanshu

        We can understand your concern and there is no doubt that this is a very genuine concern. But, I have a little objection with the way you raised this issue. You could have avoided being personal here and raise doubts over someone’s intentions. Anyway I still appreciate that you raised this issue and I am sure that Insightians will take care of this.

        Chill bro and keep calm….. Happy learning 🙂

        • minaxi

        Very much right @lordbuddha, I have also noticed it…by Copy-PASte from PREvious answers and such type of sarcasm,these people end up making fun of himself…thankfully UPSC dont go by upvotes and filter them out..dear,Kudos for raising this ,its a genuine and very serious issue..Hopefully, it will be taken care of by reviewers and our insights.

      Hi Ashish, Beautiful essay you wrote, I am Beginner here, can you please give me some insights as to how to start?
      Thanks

      • aashish 2000

        Dear Nitesh,
        Please dont think how to start… Just think about the topic and write something which strike your brain and post that…and ping me back.. I do review it… and when we do it consistently … we can make good essay….All th best…

        • Nitesh

          Please please review it, and honestly and brutally point out the mistakes, it is my first essay, i worked very hard on it.

          Little girl and father were crossing a bridge, the father was little scared and said to his daughter to hold his hand while crossing the bridge, but the girl told him to hold her hand. It was because the girl trusted his father more than herself, as she may let go off her father’s hand in case of trouble, but she knew her father will never let go off his daughter’s.

          Trust is to organization is what lubricant is to the Engine, it keeps the moving parts from seizing up and stopping forward motion. There are several people who people trust, they take them at their word, when they are absent people speak well of them. Opposite is the person who is trusted by nobody. People always seem to suspect them of her motives, take every action of her to be a reason for not to be trusted.

          There are several factors in trust building over the years.

          Reliability – do what you say, be consistent and honor your promises. Trust is like a mirror, it doesn’t get fixed if it breaks, it was evident in China’s behavior when we were displaying sense of brotherhood with Panchsheel and Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai, China attacked us on two fronts. Since then We are wary of China and the trust is still on in place. On the other hand, in the Cricket Rahul Dravid is trusted because he is reliable and will take any responsibility be it wicket-keeping, captaincy or batting at any order. He could do it because he displayed sense of reliability over the years such that people came to trust him.

          Honesty – tell the truth as much you can, don’t lie, admit to it. Speak from the heart and express your feelings. Honesty is critical factor in building trust as public see your actions and hear your words, thus actions should show sense of honesty. This is harder than it sounds. Most of us like to think of ourselves as truth-tellers. But it’s easy to round the numbers up, spin the facts, or conveniently leave out the evidence that doesn’t support our position. In 1999 when India called for renewal of relations with Pakistan and started bus service from Delhi to Lahore, Pakistan was not honest and hid its actions in the Himalayas, which led to Kargil war.

          Being open and Transparent –People will not trust you unless you learn to share yourself, wants and all. You have to take a risk and be vulnerable. This creates rapport and rapport builds trust. British Prime Minister Winston Churchill after the second world war famously remarked that “an iron curtain has been drawn over Eastern Europe” when Stalin had communism all over Eastern Europe and hid all the activities from the outer world. Western Powers didn’t trust Communism and Truman famously remarked Its US job to Contain, reduce and end communism. Same is going over in China Today, with ban of social sites like Google and Facebook, and gross violation of human rights. Thus world sees China with eyes of suspicion

          Integrity – keep secrets told to you, display loyalty, keep your feelings under control, avoid abusive behavior, use assertive communication. A person can only trust you, if he is comfortable in feeling vulnerable in front of you, share all his faults and secrets to you. He trusts you with his life, and displays loyalty towards you, when Humayun died shortly after claiming the throne of Delhi leaving his 13-year-old son Akbar to his General Bairam Khan, it was Akbar’s sense of trust and loyalty of Bairam Khan’s loyalty towards the Mughals that Empire was stable until Akbar could rule himself. Consistency in your actions in also required which lead to integrity in your character. For e.g. Flipkart is known for its delivery, it has achieved so by consistently delivering the right product at the right place and at the right time, and without any mistakes. Any delay or problem tends to weaken the company-consumer relationship.

          Trust is developed by various acts of loyalty, faith and accountability and responsibility towards one another. In case of husband and wife, trust is the most important factor in the relationship it is the fuel which keep a relationship going, suspecting husband or wife may lead to relationship problems even if the party suspected for guilty is actually innocent. Once you lose someone’s trust, it will always be in back of their mind even if they have smile on their face.

          It is said that in political sphere, there is lack of trust among the contributors, and in international relations, the policy of self-interest and being a diplomat helps, however successful foreign policy is based on being out-rightness and honest behavior with a focus on well-being of your people and not doing any harm to others. If the public loses trust in his political system, it is often takes into revolutions which human history has witnessed from French revolution to Indian struggle for independence. The revolution often short termed and struggle long term is for reestablishing the political structure to establish lost trust.

          Trust can always be rebuilt. Granted, in some situations, it can take years. It takes doing the right things over a long period of time. Unfortunately, you can lose it overnight. Coming back to story of daughter and father, it is trust established over the years by her dad that he will not let go of his daughter and will always be there to support her. Thus it is rightly said that it is hard to trust someone second time around after, they already gave you one reason not to trust them.

          Thank you for reading

    • Rishi

      Positives :
      1. Good examples
      2. Mentioned different perspective.
      Negatives:
      1. Word limit
      2. Limited articulation
      3. Vocabulary could be improved.
      4. Examples could have been from day to day life.

      • aashish 2000

        I agree with word limit and limited articulation…and Vocabulary working on that…slowly… you will see the change in my next essay on this…. Examples from day to day life…. can you list out one example…please…

      • Hi Rishi please review my essay too. 🙂

    • HappyIAS

      good intro.
      a small grammatical error: the only thing that stuck (instead of stucked) in the mind.
      Please add more dimensions to it. International one is well covered.

      But, it’s too short. Looks like just half of what is required. u can cover many things in the remaining word limit.

      Please review mine too. Thanks 🙂

    • ajay

      very nicely explained the imp of trust and numerous egs of how it can be broken in seconds…overall gud essay aashish just that more can be written and conclusion can be more gradual and effective….

IF YOU THINK THAT BY DOWNVOTING MINE WIll GET YOUR ESSAYS REVIEWED, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. GO AND GET A LIFE!!! IF ANYONE OUT HERE HAVE ISSUES WITH ME, PLEASE SAY IT, BUT DONT BE SO IMMORAL. IT DEMOTIVATES US.

    Please review Dear Friends and Insights 🙂

    Prakriti is a single parent. Most of the time, she is busy doing her office work as she is General Manager of a big firm. She hired a caretaker for her 6 year old daughter Alia, who needs her mother’s time and care. But due to time constraint, Prakriti can’t do so. The caretaker instead of doing her rightful duty, is busy watching shows on Television and other things in the absence of Prakriti. It’s been 2 years now. For Prakriti, her little girl is all getting love and affection as she trust the caretaker fully. But is that so? And how did she developed that trust?

    Trusting someone is not an easy task. You can’t go out there and trust every other person you meet. It takes time for that “faith” to get develop in a person after he analyse other person’s behaviour and finds it in his definition of being moral, and afterwards starts trusting him. Once “trust” develops, it connects both the persons emotionally as well, as this is the reason “why it takes seconds” to break when your emotions get hurt.

    Trust is like cleaning your home. It takes a lot time to clean each and every piece of tile at the floor and corners at your home. What happens when someone comes in the room, and throw a handful of soil in the air within a fraction of second? All of your earlier efforts get wasted and you have to clean the room again, but then you know for whom you don’t have to open the door next time.

    Trust is like a piece of paper, once it’s crumpled it can’t be perfect again. India’s relationship with China can be looked upon in this case. Panchsheel agreement was all for mutual peace and cooperation. India invested a lot of time of her in China. Indians even believed that, “Hindi-Cheeni Bhai Bhai”(India and China are like brothers). But that brotherhood was stabbed when China attacked India and violated Panchsheel agreement in 1962. After that, the Indian government always analyse the situations whenever they have to deal with China, for once trust is broken, it can’t be perfect again.

    Trust is like an eraser, it gets smaller and smaller after every mistake. But not every time it is the fault of both the person’s involved. It might be some misunderstanding. India’s social problems like Communalism and Casteism implies to this direction. For personal benefits, handful of politicians indulge in this type of politics and give hot speeches. Both the major communities which are living from centuries on Indian mainland with trust and brotherly relations, gets affected and start looking at each other for even puny mistakes. Illiteracy also plays a big role in it, as the people fail to understand why a divide is being created between people. This all results in the breach of trust.

    Trust is like a mirror. You can’t fix it once it is broken. We see the cases of dowry, violence against women in families and in extreme situations, some cases of marital rape which our law don’t yet recognize. In all these situations, it become so hard for a woman to decide whether to be morally correct and raise her voice against injustice, or just stay silent, as the so called “respect” which society have marked to stay in limits, will be lost. For how can a person live at a place where his trust is infringed regularly and respect is denied. Surely, it can’t be fixed perfectly even if the broken pieces of mirror are kept together. Because you’ll always see a crack.

    However, there lies an argument which should be surely touched. We in our expectations with other people, develop high emotions which keeps on breaking even when the other person is not at fault. We tend to think the other person loves us the same way, we love him. It would be better if we learn to see people who they are, not who we want them to be. That will result in better relations and better mutual trust.

    Along with this, there lies a simple logic of being correct whenever the need arises, whether we are right or wrong. When we’ve done something wrong, we should admit it and be sorry. No one in history have ever chocked to death from swallowing his pride. Because DISTANCE doesn’t separate people, SILENCE does.

    Little Alia told her mother how the caretaker behaves with her when the mother Prakriti, is not at home. Prakriti have not got many options. She can remove her and hire a new caretaker, she can give caretaker another chance as she has apologized for her past behaviour. What should Prakriti do? She should just act in a way, what’s best for her daughter even if the cracks of broken mirror are viewable.

    The word is a small place to live. It can be huge for the people who have trust issues. Loneliness can haunt them. It is not possible to live without healthy relations let be in the family, in friend circle or overall socially. Trust takes years to build, but seconds to break. But it might not take forever to repair, if we learn to be respectful toward others. Because a relationship without trust is like a phone with no service, and what do you do with a phone with no service? You play games.

    • aashish 2000

      Good to read… and noted few points…
      I feel connectives from one para to para can be placed instead of Trust is like….
      I also noticed which I left is pointing out women attributes.. while speaking to anonymous guy…can be drafted in your piece of art…will add extra points..
      In conclusion.. comparing trust with mobile is not apt..because relationship is a term with wider connotations..it can be happened with necessity…then service is available without satisfaction… You can modify it…
      I like few lines like distance doesnt seperate…… Keep writing..

      • Thanks a lot Ashish. Will look upon ur suggestions.
        Thanks for the honest review 🙂

    • Ankit

      “Trust is like an eraser” – I couldn’t stop myself but literally applauded you after reading that 🙂

    • YdoVfall

      Well I have to mention, you made a lot of objectification of “Trust” :p.
      You mostly focused on the charactar of trust and went into its philosophy. I can’t find any wrong in it. Yes trust is like a mirror.
      I don’t know but when I look for essay, I want to see multiple dimensions in it.
      You went deep into philosophy of trust.
      You could have explained some real life examples; even political ones will do; Or you could choose historical example or international relations.
      Further you could have added how to sustain trust; how to gain trust; how to make sure that it is not broken and what steps must be taken; Breaking the trust of allies, is it good thing or bad? What will be its repercussions, Must we only focus on strategic utility of others or go for Ethical relationship based on understanding mutual concerns.
      You could have added a lot. Lot was missed. But I enjoyed your writing.

      • omg bro..you got my trust in you for this honest review. 😀
        i see some more angles now. Thankyou so so much bud 🙂

      6) Trust is like a mirror wala example padhte hue mujhe ye lagne laga ki aap trust pe likh rahe hain essay..na ki trust ke ghanto banne and seconds mein bigadne ke baare mein
      7) Mujhe aapka essay bahut pasand aata agar woh UPSC essay ka review ki tarah nahi, switzerland me baithe hue kisi park ki haseen vaadiyon ko dekhte hue aaram se padh raha hota..yahan mujhe critical hona padh raha hai jo main nahi chahta
      Switzerland wale Pandeyji aapki baaton se bahut sehmat and khush hain..but India ke thane mein baithe padneji ko lagta hai ki aapne trust pe likha hai and na ki trust ke banne aur bigadne pe
      P.S. itna toh dikh raha hai ki ap ek Love Guru hain

          ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

          Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

          Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

          But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

          Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

          Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

          Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

          We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

          • hahah very good brother!! ye line is type se use hogi, i never thought of this. smiling 🙂
            trust ko thoda aur define karte to acha hota!
            Very good flow in the satrting. Also,examples are good. Dadri case type ki controversial things should be avoided, as you have all other examples in the world
            later, nehru and gandhi par alag alag para! historic angle ek dum se zyada ho gya. Diversify. Use some thing else.
            Conclusion can be improved. Conclsion means summing up all the things. End me do not touch any new thing. just conclude in passive way.
            Overall good write up. Keep writing Sir 🙂

    • Jaya Swatantra

      Arre vah so fast very good just going to review yours in a while.. please review mine too.. 🙂

    • Eco-friendly

      I liked your comparison of trust with different things and making it easier to understand. That women part and following para is good too. And your connection to the story in the end is great (i think you worked on some of the suggestions made by Insights- keep it up).

      Improvement needed-
      1) Do touch multiple aspects, may be contemporary(though I do find some difficulty in doing that today)
      2) Though comparison is good but elaborate more on others. Philosophical part must be sometimes limited.
      3) Conclusion can be made better. I do have similar problem, may be we can learn from others.
      4) What I see in your essay is you have points but may be because of hurry you have not used your full potential.

      Although the essay is ok but dude your level is quite higher than this and I am sure you will come with beautiful colors next time.

    • Ankit

      TukTuk ji mera bhi review kardijiye please 🙂

      • You got my words. Will do. Thoda wait 🙂

    • black mamba

      When we’ve done something wrong, we should admit it and be sorry. No one in history have ever chocked to death from swallowing his pride. Because DISTANCE doesn’t separate people, SILENCE does. ——> WOW ! 😀 love this

      however, i didn’t see how exactly the story was related to your essay. you simply threw in the word ‘trust’ and boom. that’s all to it.

      secondly. trust is not just faith. it develops with time and involves acts of-
      1) faith
      2) loyalty and reliability on each other
      3) accountability (of accepting mistakes when committed)
      4) responsibility towards one another
      5) truthfulness
      repeated time after time btw two people. then they both trust each other.

      i just see u dwell in one dimension of trust. It in my opinion is grossly inadequate.

      can also talk about :

      1) in a democracy, people trusting their representatives (they choose); when it is broke, it can take a long time to build it back (lalu is no doubt an exception 😛 )

      2) trust btw army and executive (govt) is necessary for our country to run properly. Else can result in a military coup (see the neighbour — we have Nawaz Sharif and THE REAL SHARIF (Raheel Sharif) 😛 lol)

      3) trust btw husband and wife for children to become an equally emotionally healthy, emotionally intelligent (as opposed to self destructive) and independent citizens – can contribute better to nation building and personal productivity.

      4) trust between different ministries is imp ( recent case where finance ministry issued notice to MEA asking it to curb indian diplomats’ foreign visits, and directed MEA to use video chats/conferences instead; whereas MEA refused—> such cases are not good, especially at a time when foreign relations are very important for india)

      5) trust between international allies for a common cause. Especially for –
      – climate change
      – terrorism (very very important for all countries to have a united front and stop funding of terror. united front requires mutual trust.)
      – poverty + sustainability.
      if any one country slips, we as a world will lag behind a lot.

      These are just dimensions of trust and importance of trust, I know it has to be moulded and knitted up in order to fit in as per demand of the topic. But the point is that, they can be written along with those components i guess.

      it’s a mini essay i wrote, m so sorry 🙁
      liked the flow but i feel more can be added, especially about ‘trust’ – make and break to add on hota rahega…

      KWAR 😀

      • padhta hu review baad me, mere downvoters aa gye h :/

        • black mamba

          WHAT
          had h, why do people down vote :/

          han, i wrote quite a bit.
          apologising abhi se :/

          • last 3 essays se kar rha hai mera koi, me kabhi ni bolta kisi ko kuch na karta hu downvote. Really feel sad about all this. Demotivating. Kaash insights ye sab notice kare.
            And dont be sad. I was waiting for your review. Lamba hai , aaram se padunga! Will tell then!
            Advance me thanksssss mamba :))

            • Eco-friendly

              They are the jealous people who downvoted yours. Its such a bad practice. Why they do such things when they r given enough opportunity to put their comments. Don’t pay heed to them.

              • Profoundis

                does people would also be jealous to strangers? .common yaar ….
                u mean whoever gets more votes are supermen/women..?
                this platform is getting adulterated by some dubious people as one of our friend rightly put …i.e most of the people not concentrating on the content n relativity of the questions rather banking on popularity ..who writes first n who gets more reviews n more upvotes ……which doesn’t serve any purpose at all even for themselves as well intact in the process they are cheating themselves , sooner we realise better we would be …all the bests

                • not jealous to stranger, but rather towards essay, even not so good essay because they themself have not written maybe? i dont know really whats the problem!
                  you tell profoundis, why its downvoted?
                  adultered? wow
                  All the best to you friend 🙂

                  • Profoundis

                    y dont u see like this way …
                    the people who are down voting some one is to make them more better as like every parent do to their children…
                    even our teachers beat us for y .to get us well educated n get good marks …isnt it ?
                    by ur logic does parents scold us on the pretext of they can’t be like us ….which one is right ?

                    • Yes Profoundis. I got what u want to say. But you’re partially correct.
                      Will not go much into it. I respect your thoughts and the way u look at things.
                      Thankyou 🙂

                    • Profoundis

                      thanx my dear friend ,

                      i don’t know whether it is my destiny or my luck i.e .with whoever i converse they understand me the way i want to convey including u ..

                      i was blessed for that and would love to bless further with the blessings of people like u and i urge u to bless urself as well.

                    • Thankyou so much Profoundis for your blessings. May God make you more wise, calm, composed and happy . 🙂

                    • Dear Profoundis, can you tell me how can i bless myself?
                      You told me, ” I urge u to bless urself as well.”
                      Is that possible? And how?

                    • Profoundis

                      yes it is ..
                      ncz i don’t believe in any blessings other than self blessings ..
                      i don think god/godess will bless us
                      n some one blessings would be biased …..like favourable if they like us n curse if they don’t like us …
                      so only pure blessings is self ..even parents also biased since they were ambitious always abt their son/daughter…
                      so the pure blessings is self since we only know our own potential

                    • Dear profoundis
                      I think if ur parents blessings are biased as they are ambitious, then ur own blessings for u will also be biased as you too my friend, are ambitious. Even every person is ambitious. So what’s the benefit of even self blessing!!
                      Sorry for my incorrect english. I hope you understand me.

                • Eco-friendly

                  nhi I did not mean that. What i wanted to convey is instead of simply doing downvote (and showing -ve attitude) and not commenting the grey areas is not a good practice at all. I do read your reply and i would say yes parents and teachers do beat us but at the same time they tell us our mistake and help to rectify rather than silently beat.

                  And no one becomes superman/women by sheer upvotes or comments. Its a platform to practice and improve and not a battle ground to settle scores. So downvoters can downvote but they must speak up too.

                  And i do like your reasoning and positive approach. Aaj essay nhi likhe ho? Sry us din me nhi kar paya review but next time I will do for sure.
                  All the best.

            • Himaanshu

              deal with it bro. When your write up gets flagged or downvote trust me you are writing well and going in right direction. This was a very common issue 5 months back infact flagging answers was more common than downvoting. In downvoting atleast people will be able to read your answer in flagging no one would be able to see your answer. Imagine when I used to devote precious time in answer writing and some Einstein comes and flagged my answers every now and than. Enjoy this yaar 🙂

              • yes you’re right brother. 🙂
                thanks for taking out your time. I respect your thoughts 🙂

        • minaxi

          Can’t believe… Article 19 ke hote hue bi log downvotes ka sahara kyu lete hen.. 🙂

          • Because hypocrites are omnipresent. :/ 🙂

          • Profoundis

            intolerance of criticism arising out of irrational faith

            • minaxi

              Sir.. If you will explain in plain English…

              • Profoundis

                what ..! i never come across a term like plain english/rough/mountain english……could u plz explain me what does plain english stand for….so that i would be continued

        • Down voters know they can not write better than you! 🙂 chill! 🙂

      • Hi Mamba,
        Please find time to review my essay too 🙂
        Waiting for your feedback! 🙂 thanks in advance 🙂

            Tq! :))

            • black mamba

              I was in fact searching your essay before u pinged me.
              I was in a serious ‘review’ mode yesterday.
              No wonder didn’t write anything myslef!

      • Sabse phle to thanks Mamba for taking out your time and giving such a detailed review! Really appreciate it dear friend (: (:
        That story was related 😡 i hate you!!

        secondly. trust is not just faith. it develops with time and involves acts of-
        1) faith
        2) loyalty and reliability on each other
        3) accountability (of accepting mistakes when committed)
        4) responsibility towards one another
        5) truthfulness
        Surely someone have gone through some good and bad relations 🙂
        yaar serioulsly i though to define some of them, but totally failed. thanks for pointing out. Next time se hoch-poch nhi karunga, even if it takes time.
        Lalu 😛 ( all of them are ek hi thaili k chatte batte)
        Nawaz sharif khareed le ebay se! on sale! goolge it! 😛
        3,4) Good one 🙂
        yeah, you’re right! much missing and thanks for the mini essay 😀
        Thank you so so much. All the best dear friend 🙂 🙂

      Hello Lord..
      I will say… it’s is engaging peace.. No break. And like the flow, especially like a good TV serial, especially combination of story. 🙂
      Now most important part..
      Story – I think it do not relate with trust part completely or in my opinion, do not reflect the importance of trust and it’s breach completely.
      Dimensions- You have mentioned the incidents or importance of trust breaking events in many ways like eraser, piece of paper, mirror, But other dimensions are missing. Could have added some other aspect.
      Sorry fried, I myself is not a good essay writer, But i felt, by pointing out these things, You can better care about essay in future.
      Thanks,,, And plz spare some time to review my essay.. I will post it shortly.
      P.S- Article 18 prohibit any title in India and By Indian.. Lord. 🙂

            ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

            Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

            Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

            But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

            Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

            Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

            Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

            We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

      hi bro…nicely written..flow was beautiful..I have following observations..
      1. u had beautifully explained trust..but it was too much I think…other dimensions like why it take too much time..why its fragile..what ti be done to have a trustwothy world etc..need to be explored..
      apart from that it was just beautiful..
      kindly review mine..
      thanx and regards

      • briganzza

    • Jaya Swatantra

      Hello Tuk tuk ji,
      So here goes my review
      Your intro is catchy but you must mention how that caretaker able to gain such trust.. uts basis..
      Many more dimensions may be added, you did justice with philo part but i think there should be a balance between practical aspects and philosophy
      More focus on flow and connecting the threads…
      but overall a nice attempt.. you may write better than this as i sensed from your critical reviews.. All the best.. keep writing.. 🙂

      • heheheh thank you Jay 😀
        Haaanji i write awesome, but kabhi kabhi nhi!! 😉
        karta hu aapka b review! thankyou 🙂

    • Ganga kinare wala

      The trust aspect has been harped upon more and the second part could have been done better. The introduction is catchy and the conclusion is impressive. you could have also talked about various dimensions of trust

    • Aseem

      Very comprehensively dealt.. Good essay.. Just a few observations:
      1. Try elaborating the EXPECTATION point
      2. Acceptance to deed needs some clarity
      3. In the conclusion you mentioned trust can be repaired, you can give one example on this also which I found missing!
      Rest your essay is really lucid and the flow is wonderful…

      Please do critical review of mine too! I have just posted mine…

      • briganzza

        Hey Hi! 🙂

        Could you please find time and review mine too! 🙂

        It would be really helpful! Thanks!

      • Thanku Aseem 🙂
        Thanks for being critical.
        I’ll review urs in a bit 🙂

    • Ash

      Hello Tuktuk! :))

      I would start from here: Trust takes years to build, but seconds to break. But it might not take forever to repair, if we learn to be respectful toward others. – Wow! 🙂

      To the review :
      1. Too many exs on trust… shattering mirror,, crumbling ppr.,… live examples give a better view.. 🙂
      2. English few places but a remarkable change … I’m surprised to see some1 learn so well and so jaldi.. good! 🙂
      3. Only policians indulging in casteism .. I don’t agree.. they are singing a song the majortiy wants to hear.. I hope you understand… Its like channels want TRP they want votes.. map from this ex.
      4.where his trust is infringed regularly – trust can’t be infringed regularly .. evaluate your statement you will understand what I’m trying to say!
      5. But it might not take forever to repair – you just called trust a mirror.. mirror how much eva you repair … cracks are visible… when we write something we stick to it throughout our essay!
      6. I like the games conclusion! 🙂

      Overall, its an okay essay because dimensions can be added….. And yeah! there was coherence so I appreciate that!

      Now I’m off for lunch you’re expected to review mine .. so please find time… 🙂

      • Hey Ash! Review mine I’ll review yours! 🙂

        • Ash

          Sure Sim! 🙂

      • Hello Dear Ash 🙂 ( i know i used Dear,will explain later)
        2. Learnt from you and one more friend. So thanks for always pointing out.
        3. I didnt wanted to play much blame game, so politicians tak hi rha! i could have mentioned some media wale Karan Thapar and barkha Dutt type extra secularism pseudo game i dont know how to put it in essay. Also, many angles aur b the, but i thought not to go in that much
        4. I was tring to point about marital rape and domestic voilence 😀 us case me socho! vaise here i agree with u partially. Can be improved.
        5.haha agree
        6. Conclusion se on another note, sorry for that day i almost scolded u! (i dont know if that was scolding or not, but was not good). I had a fight with my sister and at the same time, you called me that word. so that made me angry. later, i realized i was wrong and should have took that on lighter version. I thought to apologize but failed. So here i say i’m “sorry” for that day. Maaf kardena Dear 🙂 you’ve been a good friend till now, so accept ,my apology!! that’s an order!!
        Will review urs in a bit!! too much reviewing today! 😀 😀
        Thodi der wait!

    • Sonia mehra

      Dear Tuktuk,
      1. The introduction is good.
      2. What is trust and the process of gaining has been explained nicely. But what is trust has been stretched too far, rather than trust takes years to built
      3. I doubt whether there is an official version of India-china war of 1962. I believe most of our knowledge is through leaked papers or reports. So it’s better avoid such example. If there is any authentic version which is accepted by GOI, then plz do let me know.
      4. Trust can’t be fixed once broken= It would be proper to say trust can be fixed, but it won’t be able to achieve earlier heights.

      Second last para is interesting.
      Thank you and please review mine.

      • Thanks Soniaji for ur review!
        3) i too have only read that in papers etc. Dont know if thats the case.
        karta hu me aapka review, just need some time 🙂

      • Ash

        Sonia plz find time and review mine too.. Btw long time and where is the Calvin dose?? 🙂

      • Dilkhush

        review mine if u could get time..

    • MJ

      Very nicely written !!

      I would like to mention here that too many trust issues are taken care.

      Examples given by you are very apt. Examples of politicians for propaganda approach in election campaigning. Relationship between employer and employee.

      Trust in international relations plays important role for sustaining international peace….!!!!

    • Isha

      Hi Tuktuk, my views-
      Intro- good, but can be better.
      Flow problem and connectivity missing this time.
      Ideas were good in each para but they seem segregated due to missing connectivity.
      Examples were pretty apt (Y)
      II half was good too.
      Second last para- kuch clear nahi hua thoda.
      Conclusion (y)
      Overall, it was a nice read and an improvement over the last one. Flow problem hai bas thodi.
      KWAI 🙂
      Review mine as well as and when you get time.

    • Subhash tadala

      Your review is very nice.

    • Affu

      good attempt,u started well but to be more relevant ur anecdote should have included point where prakriti’s trust got broken,as in this case, she still trusts her care taker
      ur analogies though good can be reduced to accomodate different dimensions
      india-china good example,can include india-pak:kargil incident
      u can move on to economic aspects also,social relations,there are various dimensions to be explored
      keep writing:-) btw,last week i promised taht next week i shall take up ur essay review on priority basis,i didnt break ur trust:-)

      • minaxi

        india-pak:kargil incident??? Well Affu, I think, only friends have power to break trust not the foe.
        Any way.. nice review.. If find it possible than review mine too.

        • Affu

          haan,but vajapyee jee ne jab dosti karli thi na lahore jaakar,context mein woh dushman se dosti!lekin dushman dost na bansaka,Mr.vajapayee ka famous statement bhi tha w.r.t. kargil taht he felt like someone stabbed in his back

        • Neelotpal

          Madam, there is implicit trust between among civilized parties that they will behave in manner that well behooves their being called civilized. And the parties could be warring (enemies) or aloof (starngers). Ab ye alag baat hai ki Napakistan ko civilized samajhna hi hamari bewakoofi hai….

      • Thanks Affuji
        hanji thoda miss kia hai mene! Next time se try karunga
        thanks yaad rkhne ko ki review karna hai 🙂

        • Affu

          haan woh downvotes etc dont bother,there are some elements on this forum, ahve also handled some who troubled me in their own way,just ye soch lena, “ye einstein,newton sab aapko administrator hone ke baad bhi milenge,they are just training u to handle such kind of people”
          Keep writing,dont get distracted

          • Thanks Affuji for motivating.
            Actually this is going on from some time. Last 2-3 essays me b yhi hua! So thoda bura lagta hai.
            Nonetheless, now i dont care. Thanks to all of u guys. Will keep writing.
            Thanku 🙂

          • Aaj mujhe bhi bhot down votes mile :'( have no idea why 🙁 itnaaaaaaa bhiiiii bura nahi tha 🙁 🙁

            • Affu

              Arey ya,chodna,those are nt worth ur time to even think about

              • But it is demotivating 🙁

                • Affu

                  acha jee,hamare saare dost itne bade bade motivational quots post kartein hain,toh itna instantly motivate nahi hote aap,ek downvote aur depressed,bahut nainsaafi hai,insight par quote/video post karne wale aapko maaf nahi kareinge

                  • Ab nahi hogi ji naainsaafi. I shall do my work and let down voters do theirs. Dekh lenge who wins at the end 🙂

      • Nik_Almighty

        Is this also relevant?
        China’s attack in 1960’s and loss of trust in NAM and peace of third world countries.

    • HappyIAS

      a very good start.
      u have a good command over language.
      The essay is well connected.

      But,
      there’s too much of philosophy. The essay lacks more dimensions.
      Avoid too much “Trust is like” thingy..

      Conclusion is good. Especially, “Because a relationship without trust is like a phone with no service, and what do you do with a phone with no service? You play games.” Loved it.. 🙂

      Overall, a nice essay.
      Keep writing and reviewing. 🙂

      • You’re right! Dimension is missing. Will work upon that too from next time 🙂
        And if u write, ping me! i”ll review urs too! Maybe by tomorrow, kyunki abhi i have to go somewhere! upr se baaki kaam :/
        but Bta dena! I’ll review
        and thank you bhai for appreciating 🙂

        • HappyIAS

          I’ve written bhai. Thanks for asking me. Please review it when u have time. Looking forward to it. 🙂
          thanks for appreciating my critical review. Let’s keep helping eachother to improve. 🙂

          • will try to review maybe in a day. 🙂
            too much to do today. I hope u understand. But will review. Thoda sa wait bhaijaan 🙂

            • HappyIAS

              sure man.. take ur time 🙂

      • G.

        happy bhai
        i have seen good reviews from you. its been long time on this and other platforms.
        please take some minutes to review my essay. it will be really helpful to me. its somewhere down here or alternatively here is the link.
        https://karankre.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/trust-takes-years-to-build-and-seconds-to-break/

        post your link as well. i would love to read and learn from your essay

        • HappyIAS

          Sure man.. here goes:

          bhai trust and faith ka difference seems out of context here. u could use faith as a pointer towards building trust but differentiation is not req.

          “Is it necessary to be present, or rather without which one cannot survive?” – unclear statement.. rephrase it please.

          “Among them, the nature of humans that needed the life of trust to be there, also is suspects trust. the reason is for its survival. For the reason of survival there is selfishness in it.” – couldn’t understand it. :-/ In fact, this para seems vague.

          liked ur last 3 paras but body needs to be improved a lot.
          a good read. Keep writing friend. 🙂

          I’ll be glad to learn from ur review of my essay. U can find it by going to my disqus profile. Insights k comments mein dhundhte dhundhte to budhaapa aa jayega 😀 I don’t have a blog like u 😛

    • rajjoo!!

      review mine plzz…..u just believe in urself and say yes u write well 🙂 dnt get demotivated… critics are good just dat u have something good and hence a critique…

    • Anubhav Pandey Kautilya

      very nice flow….coherence….the dimension u took –philosophical kind of was very well explained….though u tried to connect it with things like Indo-china relation…cast issues…communal tensions…..but in the end it was bit one sided only…with no emphasis how bridging trust deficit and all….

      for me it was goodd……but from overall essay’s point of view…a bit other things would have been pinch of salt…and u know no matter how good u have cooked the foodd…..without salt it does not give that pleasure to eat…

    • Keshav Singh

      readability ,,flow and conclusion are good…
      china wala pt is apt…
      i think Introduction a bit dull, as it does not withstand the high moral ground in the body…apart from this you have mentioned(Prakirti) it at the beginning and end no mention in between….
      I think Marital Rape is still subjective,,,it shows your opinion,,, what if examiner has opposite opinion ,,,, then you may loose marks….so preferably choose well settled examples to support your argument….

      overall good essay ,,,,nice attempt keep going.

    • Keshav Singh

      dont bother about down votes,,,

      it is a TEST
      if it has some weight then you improve(not everyone will spend time to improve you),,,if it is out of malice then show some magnanimity to forgive them……

      after reading your reply malicious down voter will be happy

      and genuine will be antagonized ………both is wrong(atleast i think so)

    • aashish 2000

      Its better to spill out the names who downvoted… Please raise the voice by listing them……

    • G.

      hey tuk tuk
      you are an oldsport here and wrote like it.

      flow was good and smooth read

      it really ended well

      please review mine as well. it will harldy take few minutes. it is somewhere down here. or alternatively here is the link of the blog

      Seriously I liked your essay. Though should be of some more dimensions. But it was a good read. I even don’t want to read mine. One qs, do you read whole essay after completing ?
      Thanks 🙂

      • No brother, most of the time i just post what i have written. But i correct some mistakes and typos which are in the essay afterwards. 🙂
        i’ll try to review. Lagging behind very much. I hope u dont mind. Might take some time.

    • yogi

      Hello Tuktuk Bhai, kiaso ho 🙂
      brilliant essay 🙂
      i liked the analogies that u made, though thoda si zyada ho gayi, but padhne me maza aa gaya:)
      as far as the given quote is concerned ur essay is very good, but if i have to consider the width of the essay, then it is lacking in dimensions like whether the quote is always applicable or not?,
      good that you gave suggestion also, i missed that in mine 🙁
      flow, language, simplicity all good
      that ‘s it from my side
      keep it up !
      too late today but still if u get time plz review 🙂
      thanks 🙂

      • Hello brother. I’m doing well.
        Kha ho itne time se? Itne time baad review?
        Yes thanks jeetu, that dim. is missing in essay! itna serious hoke nhi likha tha, but its my fault overall. Will improve next time.
        Me kar dunga aapka review. Thoda kal ki wajah se lagging behind. But will review in sometime. I hope u understand. Thanks brother 🙂

    • Mrinal Mukherjee

      Dear Lord Tuktuk ,

      First of all don’t get demotivated by such trivial things brother.The person who is down voting you is afraid of the competition you are posing to him/her.Cheer up !Rather than getting demotivated you should feel at peace that you competition is not with them.Even if they downvote you , neither the quality nor your attitude of writing top class answers would change.Just be consistent and maintain your flow.These are hurdles that make you realize that you are on the right track ..I know this comment will get flagged soon , but anyway my job is done :p

      Enough of gyaan , coming to the reviewing part ,

      –Starting every paragraph with a quote on trust is innovative but i don’t know whether it would be safe or not
      –In the fourth para , you can also talk about the violations of the Karachi and Shimla Agreements with Pakistan just to add more dimensions
      –5th and 6th paras were difficult to comprehend.Can you please explain them to me ?
      –6th para again : “It would be better if we learn to see people who they are, not who we want them to be. That will result in better relations and better mutual trust.” Dont you think this would increase the acceptance level and not mutual trust ?(I may be wrong here … Like i said , i coudnt understand this para properly )
      –I think the story is of little significance to the aforesaid topic
      –Conclusion was innovative
      –You could have added more dimensions by taking contemporary examples like The Maggi case , The Maria Sharapova case (drugs wala), the Volkswagen emission scandal etc

      Kindly review mine bro !

      Just wanted to confirm a read of mine with you. “Hindi-Cheeni Bhai Bhai”(India and China are like brothers). But that brotherhood was stabbed when China attacked India and violated Panchsheel agreement in 1962.

      But on wiki (I know wiki isn’t a genuine source, Hence asking ) I found that panchcheel was signed with 8 year validity and China honoured it. Fr some reason both the sides never tried to renew it.

      Here is the line of article : “The 29 April 1954 agreement mentioned above was set to last for eight years.”
      The 8-year provision is in Article 6 of the Agreement.

      And the war started on 20 October and ran till 21 November 1962.

      Rem ! I’m still asking if this is true 🙂

      Regards

      • Dear Don 🙂
        To be true, i don’t know about it.
        You can check below in comments that Sonia Mehra too raised a question. She even told me this, ” I doubt whether there is an official version of India-china war of 1962. I believe most of our knowledge is through leaked papers or reports. So it’s better avoid such example. If there is any authentic version which is accepted by GOI, then plz do let me know. ”
        So the info you provided is from some official document?
        Thanks Don, it was nice to hear from you after so long.
        I hope you are doing good. Please let me know too if you find anything else about this point. i’m sure you’re going to check.
        Thank you Dear friend.

        • Don John

          Thanks Lord 🙂

          I’ll keep you posted, If I ever come across further info.

    • Pandu

      beautifully written….
      but revolves around the importance of trust…
      u missed the 2nd part that it took seconds to break…

    • Harsh (Learning Unlimited!!!)

      Good one , A very good read…

    • Ghost

      Why u started ur essay with a hypothetical story?? it is out of any convention? I saw other essays starting with similar hypothetical stories. What is the matter? Please clarify.

      • Hey Ghost! Sorry for the late response.
        You can start the way you want. It may be an anecdote, a quote, a doha or shlok.
        People keep on trying new things while writing essay and settle down with which they are comfortable.
        Neither there is any hard and fast rule nor any convention. Just maintain the flow. Thanks 🙂

  • KINDLY REVIEW! 🙂 🙂

    Trust me!” These are the two words we get to hear the most. We keep saying this to others and others keep saying this to us. But what exactly is trust? Is it honesty of a person towards you? Or is someone’s kindness towards you? Or is it someone’s truthfulness? Well, ‘Trust’ is a trait of believing in ‘honesty’ and ‘reliability’ of others. When a person starts developing faith in someone, he/she starts trusting him/her.

    Being trustworthy is the most valuable asset. Trust is required in every possible sphere. Be it in a family, or in friendship, in business or in an organization. Then, question arises, that what makes trust, so important? Can we not do without trusting one another?

    Trust is required everywhere because it brings loyalty. It is natural, if you trust a person deeply, the chances of you playing with his/her trust will be minimal. Similarly, trust comes with expectations. Here, expectations are not ‘gains’ but expecting to be trusted back. Hence, when you trust someone, you expect the person to trust you back.

    If I ask you, how long to you take to trust someone, what will you say? Take for instance, if you meet a stranger at the bus stop, talk for five minutes, will you start trusting him? The answer for maximum of you will be no. This because, it takes time and efforts to build trust. It takes going the extra mile to show that you are someone who can be counted on! And unfortunately, the same trust can be crushed down into a million pieces by letting someone down.

    Hence, it is rightly said that, ‘Trust takes years to build, and seconds to break.’

    The trust you have in your people and your people have in you, is the reason of incredible success of relationships. And once that trust gets broken down, it cannot get back to the same situation. Things don’t appear to be the same. Thus, trust is like a precious glass piece, which should be handled with great care!

    Here are few illustrations where trust results in magical things and if at all it gets broken down, can result in life long lessons.

    Foundations of trust between parents and their children. The most beautiful thing that can happen in a family is parents showing complete faith in their children, giving them the required freedom and the children never letting them down and keeping their word. Parents become best friends of their children when children prove them that they are someone who can be trusted. But when the kids at some point of their life play with the trust of their parents, situation starts appearing to be gloomy. It would take a considerably long time for parents to develop that same faith in their kids.

    Our lives are incomplete without friends. We might not have a long list of friends, but we must be having some friends who we can completely rely and count on. This reliability comes with trust, when we start trusting them with our secrets, our weaknesses, our strengths our problems and so on. A trustworthy friend stands with us no matter how worse the situation gets. Handful of friends who can be trusted help us to a large extent to shape up our personality. We tend to learn and adopt their good traits. We always keep a trustworthy friend close to our heart and never let him go.

    The foundation of trust plays a very significant role in any organization. A leader enjoys his work, brings innovations in his plans, when he is surrounded with trustworthy people. With trustworthy people around, he knows he can deal with any situation, overcome all the hurdles. Trust, develops a healthy environment in any organization. It promotes smooth and effective functioning of the team which in return brings massive success. But what if an employee leaks the secrets of the organization to the rivals? Will it still mark the success of the organization? And if the higher officials come to know of such a thing? Will they be trusting the employee ever again? The answer is no. Because, as said earlier , success of any institution depends on faith, trust and reliability. The organization will not only lose trust over that one employee but also, it would get hard for them to trust others as well.

    Foundations of trust between political parties and voters. We have seen political parties making a long list of promises during their election campaigns. The promises are made keeping common people in the centre, to benefit them the most. The political party and the political leader who gets successful in creating direct connection with the masses get benefited the most. People show trust in them by giving their votes to them. Now, the ruling party which forms the government can withstand the trust only when it fulfils the promises made in the election campaign. And if the promises not met, the trust of the people gets broken down. And the impact of the broken trust is seen in the next elections.

    In the era of globalization, when countries have come closer, the boundaries have become porous and the world has contracted to become a global village, the foundation of trust has played a prominent role. No country can develop by keeping itself in isolation. No country is self dependent. Trusting one another is of great importance. In the global arena, when we talk of trust between two countries, it takes a long time to build that trust. Economic issues, security concerns , social issues come forth and when two nations overcome these, a strong bond between them gets developed.

    For instance, India has the image of a big brother among its neighbouring countries. Most of them rely for funding infrastructural development in their country or agreements lifting up education system. There is a sense of trust these smaller countries have in India that India won’t misuse its powers against them. But when that trust is broken down in the form of violation of cease fire from Pakistan, it takes years for the situations to get normal. This because, trust is like a paper, once it is crumpled cannot be perfect again.

    Hence, trust is something that exists everywhere, is expected by everyone and enjoyed by only those who are honest and can be counted on. We must be trustworthy and we must chose wisely those we will trust. When we realise that some people are not trustworthy in your life, better create a considerable distance with them. And when we find those rare gems , who have shown they can be trusted, keep them close and never let them go. Because these are the people who make this world a beautiful place to live and because of them we do not lose hope in humanity.

    • hey Sim 🙂
      Your intro made me smile. Reality of our society.
      ence, it is rightly said that, ‘Trust takes years to build, and seconds to break.’ is se phle wale part ka philosophical angle is very strong. Keep up 🙂
      You took a different stance than mine i.e parent part, frnd and organization part. Loved this approach too.
      End me pakistan wale k sath aur bhi justify kar skte the Maybe China?
      Overall well crafted essay, keep writing 🙂

      • Hi Lord,
        Glad you liked it 🙂
        My point of going with Pakistan was to show how India keeps acting like a modest friend to Pakistan and it keeps breaking India’s trust. 🙂 yes China would have worked as well. 🙂 thanks pal. 🙂

        • Yes Sim, but i was talking as both Pak and China are different. China more powerful than us, Pak ko to chodo, kya baat karni! 😀
          Thoda acha compare ho jata!! but overall it was good. Acha likha hai aapne 🙂

        • ESWAR

          Dear, I am not getting your essay seriously please post it to quiz or current affairs comment section of yesterday. request

    • aashish 2000

      Good one….
      Introduction with questions is not good… It connotates the questioning aspect..instead of drawing a curve to a beautiful picture.
      Add intro as you like and tag the question part of essay to the starting point of your essay…like drawing face…
      I suggest you to take your essay into stating condition instead of answering queries…
      Conculsion is good and can be modify if changes happen above…
      Keep writing…

      • Hi Aashish 🙂
        Thanks for the review 🙂
        I had once asked insights team about asking questions in the start . They said there’s nothing wrong in it, if we could link the questions with the next para or link the conclusion with the questions raised in the introduction 🙂
        They said it enhances reader’s interest and link in the essay. 🙂 thanks yaar

        • aashish 2000

          Thank you for enlightening me….. Please ignore the above comment…my friend…

      • sankar

        plz rvw mine bhai

    • briganzza

      really nice essay
      hey if it is of not an inconvenience can you please review mine
      i could really use a critical review from someone like you

      • Sure briganzza 🙂

        • briganzza

          hey buddy plz give your critical feedback

          ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

          Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

          Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

          But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

          Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

          Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

          Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

          We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

          • Hii 🙂
            Intro is unique and innovative! 🙂 🙂 🙂
            Satyamev Jayate part was really good! 🙂 🙂
            Flow was superb! 🙂
            My only suggestion would be to always skip controversial topics ad examples 🙂
            If this is your first essay here, you’ve done great work! 🙂 keep writing buddy 🙂

    • Eco-friendly

      Trust me you wrote beautifully.
      Specially how you bring some day to day things and i liked this para and following para too- “No country is self dependent”. Through this point I am sure I can now frame 2-3 points more. Thank you for this.

      Conclusion was nice. I should learn this thing from you.

      More aspects can be added though.

      All the best….:)

      • Thanks eco bhai 🙂

      • Hi Pandey ji 🙂
        Not sure if you liked my essay, because you didn’t say anything 😛

        Haann I framed a structure before hand.
        Breaking the quote into pieces and explaining it in the starting paragraphs.
        Then bringing in various dimensions and areas where trust is required it plays a major role what happens when trust gets broken down. Then an optimistic conclusion 🙂 🙂

        • Like ya dislike ki baat nahi hai Night Thinkerji
          Mujhe aapki approach janni thi
          Kyunki main aapke nazariye se essay padh nahi pa raha
          For me my essay was entirely about writing how trust builds in years and breaks down in seconds
          Aapke essay mein mujhe trust pe zyada padhne ko mila ki trust actually hota kya hai..will give it another read now that i know your structure and approach..will tell you then

    • Michael

      mere dost … “trust me” bahot mast likha hai… padhte hi ja rha tha mai… however, in my opinion if you give your answer a little ethical tinch like persuation,attitude,emotions,integrty,behaviour etc and interconnect them then i would salute you three times… the flow in too good.. simple language … no BIG WORDS today.. liked it man.. the example of international relationa and big brother stuff is appealing.. just add little masala with examples of nepal, Sri lanka.. and if you have something in mind related to phillosophy then use it..also there was this system of trade in gujarat yar i forgot “chit” or something which is based on trust… comprehensive answer..

      however about hisaab barabar thing..

      i didint write properly.. just wrote two three points.. was not in a mood to write.. still if you want to review you are welcome..but “trust me” i know i didnt write a good essay today.. didnt even complete 1000 words… however you may find an interesting begining and end.. “just like old times” (school days ) hahahahahaha B) 😛 😀

      • LOL thanks for the review Michael! 🙂 🙂
        Glad you liked the essay 🙂
        And I’m surely gonna read your essay! You’re obviously acting modest saying you didn’t write a good one! LO I WON’T TRUST YOU IN THIS MY FRIEND! Thanks yaar

        • Michael

          hhahahaha 🙂 see it yourself bro…BTW loved your essay… copied some of your points.. no IPR issues right? 🙂 😛

    • Prash

      hi….nicely written..
      1. flow is beautiful
      2. very simple and soothing..one can keep on reading without any headache..

      3. different dimensions are touched
      two points..
      1. u have not emphasised on topic..trust building take too much time and breaking very easily.. which was center theme
      2. ur conclusion is good but just read it while keeping topic of essay in mind..u will feel its slightly offbeat
      thanx and keep writting..
      beautiful attempt

      • Hey buddy,
        Thanks for the review 🙂
        No headache lol this means a lot!! 🙂 🙂
        I’ll surely write a much much better one next time 🙂 KWAR

    • black mamba

      hey night thinker
      a well written piece 🙂
      all the points i mentioned above in a comment, are actually included in here ! lol! such a deja vu moment !
      but, u have focused too much on the first part of the statement – more on trust and not enough on what happens when it breaks.
      the quote requires us to focus on both equally. so some instances of what happens when trust breaks, and how after once braking of trust, it can never be as good as before, should be there in my opinion.
      start was good
      ending again – doesn’t really keep on the track as required. talks only about the ‘beauty of trust’.

      i hope it helps. ignore if not useful.
      KWAR 😀

      • Hey Mamba,
        Every review is useful and important. I have focused on the second part ad well, the ratio might be of 60:40 😛 lol thanks yaar

        • black mamba

          U have but not nearly enough as per me. Or maybe the first part is too over whelming for a reader (u wrote it so you’d see it differently )

      In an essay i believe one shouldn’t present ideas by saying a few illustrations, the start is the best i have read, its simple with no farji story :D, the second part hasn’t been touched in the essay. Overall a very good essay

      • Ganga kinare wala

        Bhai kindly review mine as well 🙂

      Good writing skills and the examples picked up from a common person’s life is really good.

      Please review mine too!!

    • CSE2016 aspirant

      came here to see the example of belief in Dhoni on his players like Jadeja and Raina, even after getting betrayed many times 🙂 Dhoni’s trust does not break even in a decade 🙂

      • Akhil

        Kohli brother review my essay if you have time.

    • sankar

      good one simiji
      the best thng is your flow and connectivtiy, arrangement which has beeen of very importance in almost every essay.
      thank plz rvw mine

      • Hi Sankar 🙂 thanks for the review 🙂 I’ll surely review yours 🙂

    • CSE2016 aspirant

      What about counter view – that we should not break trust instantaneously ?
      why are you writing essay like u are chatting with anyone ?
      Why you are giving examples after examples without coming up with new philosophy, new angle ?
      And examples are too big . Full para dedicated on frd , one full on parents
      Introduction – not so powerful to attract people . Make it innovative. Kuch substance, example, issue, sayings daalo . Dhoni ka hi example daal deti :).
      I find essay missing diversity. You should come up with diverse issues – like mindset of human. Children case – they trust easily. What is that which prevents us from trusting others, Need to make intelligent decisions while trusting or not trusting. You can say regular offenders ko trust nhi karna chahiye, 2nd chances should be given.

      You should have written – even if 2nd chance is given , Man main shanka rehti hai apology dene waale ke ( Like wife ke man main hamesha laga rahega ki uska hubby firse to nhi betray kar rha – may be more formal example than this one )

      Examples should not consume entire essay – but they should act like supporting blocks of your view points.
      Hope you got the point 🙂
      (Sorry for only criticising, but your language is good and you can write better than this ) 🙂 🙂

      But remember, essay should be well poised with

      (1) Philosophical angle
      (2) Social angle
      (3) Economic , IR and political angle
      (4) Counter view of the statement
      (5) Examples (3-4 lines max each so that more and more can be accommodated and support your view points)
      (6) Angle affecting India ( you wrote this fine )
      (7) Any other innovative issues/ angles you can generate – they will fetch you better marks

      • CSE2016 aspirant

        Views are personal – And may be my taste is different. Waise bhi maine to essay likhan bhi start nhi kiya hai 🙂
        I just saw other reviews and upvotes – sorry maaf kar dena – I think I did mistake in my review 🙂 🙂
        9 upvotes _/_

        • LOL!! upvotes don’t matter 😛 mostly I’ve observed that the essays and answers qguch are genuinely great dont fetch many upvote s and reviews 🙂

          • CSE2016 aspirant

            Thinker – but regarding your tendency to ask lot of questions in intro and somewhere else (I also made such mistakes in an essay) – I think you should look forward to it – it looks informal like you are chatting with someone

            • I’ll tell you why I started bringing in many questions 😛
              I keep reading many blogs how to write essays or how to improve marks in essays. The ones who’ve got selected say, it shouldn’t be straight away formal we need to maintain the interest of the reader as well 🙂
              Hence started this.
              I don’t kowif I’m fully correct 🙂
              Let’s wait for what insights says!!

              Hello Virat.. Plz mera esssay be review kr dena.. I have posted it here as well on blog too..

      • Hi Kohli Saab,
        I am not in the favours
        of using too many examples. 3-4 are enough.
        If a topic is philosophical one, we should first elaborate the quote breaking it into pieces.
        In the start I talked of the areas where trust holds importance. Family friends organization elections and countries I used as AREAS to cover up dimensions like personal life, professional life and global life. Those were not examples 🙂 not al essays demand examples of Dhoni and Sachin 😛
        Here expansion of idea was most important.
        What is trust, who to trust when to trust, when does it break, what happens when it break.
        My idea was cover these areas under the essay. 🙂 thank you.

        • CSE2016 aspirant

          Thanks simi –
          Don’t take my review as blatant criticism 🙂 Hope you will not
          They were my viewpoints 🙂 – Dhoni waala example ke liye I was kidding 🙂
          Sorry if you minded it (SORRY if Kohli has made Dhoni (you) angry )

          • Hey Prabhu 😛
            Dhoni never gets angry 😛 Dhoni girl neither :). 🙂

              On a serious note – I should not have written review like this – Essay is a thing where everyone has different style of writing – sometimes it may match your tastes, somewhere they do not.
              Sonia ji – keep writing and reviewing 🙂

    • Namrata

      hey thinker dhoni 😛
      a very good reading indeed .. flow was good .. examples were good .. but one basic thing ..most examples revolved around “trust is there when ? and what will happen if u break it? ” u know it kind of took away the theme of “years ; few seconds to break” .. ur essay was perfect for an abstract topic “trust” ..but according to me it needed a little more explanation to link with the topic better.
      nonetheless overall good piece of writing .. keep writing and reviewing 😀

      • I kind of agree with you friend, I got a bit deviated 🙁
        Thanks for the review 🙂 🙂

    • minaxi

      Simran.. The Thinker.. your essays just relaxed my mind from writing a heavy essay:)
      Flow is great- as usual
      Actually, at moment , I am unable to detect any flaw. However A second read is needed, I will read it again at night.
      Thanks,,,

      • Thanks yaar! I’m glad some of you are liking my essay. And some are simply down voting without even stating the reason 😐 I hope @InsightsOfficialReview takes this thing into their notice. 🙂

        • minaxi

          Do not take down votes seriously,, neither expect reason from them. There is no reason, they are just getting bored at home and have nothing good to do :).. let them do their work( Downvoting)..

          Plz review mine.. whenever get time

    • Isha

      Hey Night, my views-
      Intro- can be better. Can make it more catchy.
      4th para- “maximum of you”- it should be majority of you
      Similarly, later- ” The trust you have in your people and your people have in you”- not sure about this if it can be written like this.
      Till here- “Here are few illustrations”- your content was nice. But this line broke the flow. Uske bad ka content is perfect in itself. But.. segregated sa hai due to missing connectivity between paragraphs.
      Conclusion is nice.
      You have content. Just work with the structure thing and flow, connectivity problem.
      ATB.
      If you get time, read mine as well. Thanks 🙂

    • GODDAMN Batman!!

      Hi @night_thinker:disqus
      I found the essay quite lucid. Not too many hi-fi jargons etc. And quite a great flow.
      In my limited understanding, I think the essay is quite good.
      Few teeny-weeny points though:
      – Instead of “Big Brother” better go with “elder brother” as BB has a bit different and negative connotation.
      – I’m also not very sure of saying “trust you have in your own people.” Own people maybe replaced with a better phrase like “your close ones,” “your kith and kin” etc. “own people” seems a little vague.
      – “Conclusion” part felt as if you have just rushed through. That’s a bit sad, because after reading your essay, I felt like reading it again. Perhaps before writing the conclusion, you should’ve re-read your essay. Then you’d have come up with a more hearty conclusion. 🙂
      I especially liked how your illustrations went from an individual to a global level. It gave quite a sense of completion. I also got an idea of ‘Dhoni trusting his teammates, and his teammates trusting him’ as an example while looking at your DP. :p You could’ve used that one. 😀
      “That’s all folks!!” :p
      Good writing.. 🙂
      Keep it up..
      All da Best..

    • Nupur

      Nice attempt Simi:) Few observations are :
      1: Trust is honesty, truthfulness ….you can also add “is trust a kind of bargain in a society or it is selfishness or a base on which society is formed”. Why i am saying this is because in next few paras yo are writing need of trust as a kind of bargain. So if mentioned in intro will give a complete picture to examiner.
      2: In fourth para i think what you want to say but missed is the “character” of a person which you see in a person while you trust him.
      3:Why trust is important has been dealt in very detail. i personally will cut down the friends part.
      4: Why trust is breached is missing.
      5: How trust deficit can be build up is not there and while the trust is break down who is responsible. as par your essay it seems that only the person who is being trusted is always responsible but there are many exceptions to this also. Trust breach done for the betterment or for the greater good of society can be permissible.

      I think if you could make your essay more diverse will definitely fetch you great marks dear. You have potential to write a wonderful essay.Overall a very nice effort. Keep it up.
      Thanks:)
      and plzzz review mine also:))

      • Thanks for the input Nupur 🙂

        • Nupur

          Simi ji agar samay mile to mera bhi review kar do:)

    • Bharath

      my humble suggestion. please correct me if I’m wrong
      1.flow of essay is good. it follows different tiers; from family to international relations…
      2. we can write in alternate dimension also. trust does not always take years to built and seconds to break. we should not universalise the quote. there are many exceptions for ex: trust between parents and children is always there, it is innate and doesn’t take any years to built. even, if child done something wrong, it doesn’t take seconds to break. even the trust is broken, it will not take years to built again. similarly, between friends and other over ones.
      3.also, take the case of politician jayalalitha, when she was clearly involved in corruption charges and convicted, the trust kept on her by people didn’t break and infact her popularity has increased.

    • Mrinal Mukherjee

      Dear Simran , here are my views :

      –4th paragraph .. #Trust on a stranger , It all depends upon what sort of stranger you are talking about.Say for instance , the advise given by a stranger doctor or the trust a blind man has on you when he is crossing the road.(now you are the stranger for him)
      –“Hence, it is rightly said that, ‘Trust takes years to build, and seconds to break.” — This statement is breaking the flow .
      –6th paragraph : “And once that trust gets broken down, it cannot get back to the same situation” In most cases yes but there are exceptions : Despite calling of the CDM by Gandhiji after the Chauri Chaura incident in 1922 , the breach of trust among his supporters was temporary to an extent which was regained later because of his straightforward policies of Satyagraha .So , yes it is possible but requires tremendous amounts of patience and hard work
      –Your essay has wonderful illustrations but lacks contemporary examples.You could have talked about IPL match fixings , VW emission scandal , Maggi , Maria Sharapova to add more dimensions
      — Second last paragraph , you could have named some agreements like Shimla Agreement to add weight to that paragraph

      Kindly review mine 🙂

      • Hi Mrinal 🙂
        Thanks you took out time to review 🙂
        Thanks for the feedback yaar 🙂 I agree, there’s a lot that’s missing. There’s a huge scope of improvement 🙂 now my focus will be include max of the things in 1200 words 🙂

        Give me some time. I’ll surely review yours 🙂

    • Himaanshu

      – very nice write up behana 🙂
      – very comprehensively written…. Few concerns :-
      1- You could have structured the essay in a better way I guess. Like you could have started from self-trust/believe and than touchother aspects like family and friends, educational institutions and working organizations, politics, international relations. Though you already presented your write up in similar form but still more connectivity could have been achieved.

      2- You could have dedicated few lines to types of trust. Like a relationship of trust with yourself, with family, with friends so on so forth. I believe every relation has different kind and intensity of trust. You could have presented a unique point also like we always engaged in the relationship of trust with strangers for example – while travelling we trust the bus driver, while having food in a restaurant we trust the quality of food given by the restaurant, while purchasing any item we trust the claimed quality and if this trust gets violated we feel offended but we don’t stop trusting because we can’t live our life without having trust on others.

      3- I would have love to use the example of maggie case that how it allegedly broke the trust of its consumers and what impact it had on its business. An example from history could have also been mentioned. Betray from Mir Jafar during the 1757 battle of plassey changed the course of Indian history at the sametime trust relationship between Hindus and Muslims during Khilafat movement shook the mighty british empire. I am just trying to say that try to touch as many aspects you can.

      – Well done dear… Keep writing 🙂

    b) entire Arabian sea current advances towards India, whereas only a part of the Bay of Bengal current enters India.
    c) both (a) and (b)
    d) none is correct because Bay of Bengal branch is more powerful.

    4. Secondary circulation in atmosphere consists of
    1. polar easterlies

    Which of the statements given above is/are correct?
    a) 1 only
    b) 2 only
    c) Both 1 and 2
    d) Neither 1 nor 2

    • Delhi boy

      answers

      1-a) 1 and 2 only.
      Large and continuous supply of warm and moist air is the most important condition for formation of tropical cyclone. Where coriolis force is zero (like equator), tropical cyclones do not develop. An upper level outflow of air (and not inflow) helps in formation of tropical cyclone.

      2-c) 1 and 3 only.
      Relative humidity (RH) decreases when cold front passes over an area. Cold fronts are associated with clear sky and weather while warm fronts have clouds and rainfall.
      3-c) both (a) and (b).
      The question has been formed from the geography book by Khullar. The Arabian Sea branch of the monsoon is much more powerful than the Bay of Bengal branch because – 1. Arabian sea is larger than the Bay of Bengal and 2. entire Arabian sea current advances towards India, whereas only a part of the Bay of Bengal current enters India.

      4-c) 2 and 4 only.
      Primary circulation – planetary winds, includes polar easterlies. Secondary circulation – cyclones, anticyclones, monsoon etc Tertiary winds – local winds like land and sea breezes, mountain and valley winds etc.

      5-c) Both 1 and 2.
      These are the two essential differences between the monsoon of eastern Asia and southern Asia.

  • Trust takes years to build, seconds to break

    The given quote is intriguing because it involves the law of nature that states that building something always takes patience, time and care while destroying the same takes a simple impulsive wrath. Same goes with trust. Trust is a bond between two entities that signifies the understanding they share amongst them; a bond that represents how much a person believes in the other; a bond which helps one predict the action of the other. Such an intricate bond will surely take years to develop as two entities meet, come closer, develop an understanding and start believing in each other. What stupefies us is the second half of the law, how a single misunderstanding or negative event can tear apart the entire building with its base which took years of labour to build.

    This happens because the impulsive behaviour of a person has much more reactionary power in it than the usual temperament. The tone, the thinking, the energy, the behaviour and everything that is related to a person’s disposition remains at a lower level when things go smoothly and slowly in life. But when it gets rough, when there comes an emergency, when an unexpected event happens, the reaction becomes impulsive, more energetic, more powerful and more dangerous. A corresponding situation exists in construction areas. It takes constant labour to build a wall brick by brick making it stronger day after day. A day comes when the plan of construction unexpectedly changes and the wall needs to be broken. The same constant labour force cannot break it even when applied for years. But it will take one heavy blow of a bulldozer to bring the wall to ruins.

    History has its events to exemplify the quote fully. During the Indian national movement, it was in the 1920s when Gandhiji added a new layer to the national movement i.e. the masses, and for the first time the nation came together against the British as a whole. It took years of endeavour, train journeys, village to village visits, myriad speeches and campaigns for Gandhiji to let the masses develop faith in him and his ideology of non-violence. He made it clear that the movement can go forward only if remains non-violent in nature. The people believed in him as far as they sensed progress and passion. But it was one single event of the Chauri-Chaura that made Gandhi call-off the non-cooperation movement in its entirety. The impulsive situation had arrived and suddenly there was a sense of indignation all over India. The people were not ready to agree to him. The trust was belied.

    Politics is another area where one can easily find the quote’s significance. No matter how long a minister or a popular figure might be the hero for his citizens or no matter how many changes he brings in the society for good as a legislator, one bad event or one scam can detach him from the entire image he had developed. Rajiv Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru despite their manifold achievements, their images were struck har with the controversial Boforce scandal and decision of taking the Indo-Pak issue to the U.N. respectively. Even in the present scenario, a person with a grand stature such as Amitabh Bachchan with an impeccable career in Hindi Cinema blemished his image with his name being found in the Panama leaks.

    Not restricted to only day-to-day life, the given phrase has its implications in international geopolitics or diplomacy as well. Indo-Chinese relations were on a high in the mid-twentieth century but it was the 1962 war with China that has left a dark spot in India’s diplomacy. India since then has never reiterated the slogan of ‘Hindi Chini bhai bhai’ and has always looked the neighbour as a dominating as well as dangerous nation.

    Such events lead to a phase of emptiness or voidness (if that’s a word). The person who feels cheated is not able to believe how the events turned around. It is this confusion that makes him go berserk and snap the bond with his mate entirely. Listening to no-one, no arguments, no discussions he quietly moves into despair. Such phases explain the confused behaviour of a person that is not able to cope up with normalcy. (ye paragraph thoda zabardasti ghusa diya)

    But it has to be pointed out, that in all the above cases, the breach of trust was never permanent, and it never is. Since permanence can hardly be accorded to anything in life, so goes with the breach of trust. The longer the bond of trust prevailed, the harder it is to erase it completely. It might break in seconds but only temporarily. Life comes back to normal as it follows its transient nature. Had the trust in Gandhiji been completely rubbed off, he would not have been able to launch many more movements to come in the future. Similarly, although the war of 1962 left India startled, the Indo-Chinese relations have been coming back to terms lately.

    Same goes with every event that led to a period of mistrust between any two entities. Since it is the impulsive nature that acts for those moments, sooner or later, it dies out and gives place to normalcy. This also happens because the bond of trust, while taking its time to develop, build along with it a lot of attached memories and feelings. When the breach of the bond happens, it blinds a person temporarily and after a period of time, it is those memories and those times of togetherness that makes the entity ponder that how could something so strong and something so good end up like that? It pricks his mind, he thinks the other way round and realizes that something so strong cannot be erased in moments. And thus he established the bond back again with the other entity.

    Hence, it is better to say that trust takes years to build, seconds to break and some more seconds to rebuild it all over again.

      Pandeyji jaise acting karte hain waise hi essay likha hai bahut e badiya 😀

      But I would suggest Chauri Chaura ko positive sense me lijiye. Trust was never belied yeah there was a sense of resentment. Trust na hota to firse unke peche koi khada na hota. Yes there was anger and anguish and if you analyze the incident it was justified calling back the movement (at least writers justify karte hain 😛 wo bhi UPSC ke fav writers :D)

      Please review mine 🙂

      • Haan Ankitji

      Pandey ji thane me ho ya round par??

      you wrote well specially your Intro was dhamakedaar. Second para’s last two lines and third para can be reframed. It is not advisable to say Gandhi ji broke trust of people. May be examiner is a follower of Gandhi ji. Panama parer leak part is good

      Conclusion and previous para has new dimension and is good.

      Try to bring in more aspects. Although today it is difficult to bring but now after writing I get few more ideas where I can write.

      All the best.

          indirectly to bhut like- we use electricity which comes mostly via-coal fired plants, sometimes I have to use polythene too, that creates many problems too. I use bike which consumes petrol produces harmful gases….and so on.

          But still we should be conscious about our environment. Use less polythene, use public transport, etc. May be solar energy aa jaye yha bhi to achh hoga.

    “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”

    In a village named Nathpura there lived a family, Harilal was its head. Whenever there is some function or festival they used to buy gold from the only jeweler of their village. They are buying jewellery and other ornaments from him from last 3 generations. The trust build over so many decades was so much that they do not even bargain while buying. One day Harilal has to visit city for some urgent work. While travelling someone theft all his money. He was left with only his gold chain. But when he tried to sell it in market, he found that the chain was not made of gold. The trust which was built over many decades is now lost.

    In our daily life too we come across situations when the trust we have in others is being broken because of greed or because of some difficult situation. But we still continue to trust others because world cannot sustain without trust and hope. Trust is one of the most valuable assets we can have in life. It is valuable more than anything else. It is that quality in a person which is most required in today’s world, be it friendship, business, relation, etc. Even a government in power remains in power until Members have confidence and trust in it. A simple vote of no-confidence can force government to resign. So trust is a bond of loyalty between two entities.

    A child when started learning how to walk trust his guardians who are there to support him. A deer while saving its life from tiger trust his ability to run faster. A captain has trust in his team members when they play. Citizens trust their leader and vote for him. Boss gives important work to an employee whom he trusted most. All these situations require time to build trust. But what will happen if the child falls and there is no one to support him or the most trusted player falls to perform in a game or that employee cheated his boss. Trust will break and things will never be the same as earlier.

    When we lose trust we lose our credibility. And when the credibility is lost no one would like to befriend us or keep relation with us. But when it is upheld we see miracles happening. Eg- There are people (read Vijay Mallya) who borrow money even at lesser rates and cheats bank by becoming willful defaulters and there are people (villagers) who borrow money at rates as high as 24% but repay it on time (MFI- Bandhan success story). All this can happen because Bandhan has invested in trust building between people who did not let them fall.

    It is the trust over India and its armed forces that Myanmar’s government has allowed Indian armed forces to carry an operation inside its territory. It is the result of friendship and trust which was built over so many decades. Presently India has open borders with Nepal and Bhutan which is again the result of decades of friendship and trustworthiness.

    Marriage’s takes place because two families trusted each other. Bride’s family trusted that the groom’s family do not carry out atrocities on their daughter and keep her safe and happy. Similarly groom’s family welcome’s new bride with trust that she will bring happiness and joy to the family.

    Similarly any intelligence agency hires and trains its employee’s and in that process develops a relation and trust over time. The agency believes that the employee will not share the secrets of their country to the enemy country. Even at the time of National movement people trusted our freedom fighter’s like Gandhi ji and others and gain independence. It is trust only from which we can gain so much.

    But when trust has so much to gain from then why do people break it or are the people at fault when they trust wrong person or entity? In the story (at the beginning) the jeweler has become greedy and wants to earn more money by resorting to corrupt practices. So can we say greed was upheld over trustworthiness? Not exactly there can be fault in our selection of people to trust also. Has the Harilal family created checks and balances they would not have fallen prey.

    Sometimes trust is based on expectations. We expect things from person we trust and this expectation sometimes becomes the litmus test for them to prove their trustworthiness. We do not look for the rationality behind those expectations and blame others for breaking trust. Every person has expectations from government that it can bring “acche din” (good days) but can it happen just by expecting. No, it cannot. We have to maintain the trust at the same time do our part and encourage other people also. Being rational is utmost important before expecting.

    Being trustworthy is what everyone wants it from others while do not want to become one. And because of this also problem arises. US wants other countries to join Global terror database to get the sensitive information others have but itself do not want to share the same.

    Similarly in the early post independent years of India, India has shown its trustworthiness by maintaining healthy relations with China through Panchsheel doctrine but China diched India in 1962 and since then we look towards China with suspicion.

    If the problems are so acute then should we not trust anyone and suspects some conspiracy every time. No, because without trust it is impossible to live. If trust is not there then people will not deposit their money in banks, they will not work as a team and even they do not get married. So you need to trust if you have to do anything. And for that you should be honest and truthful to others. It is the prerequisite before someone trusts you. You also need to be rational and keep various checks and balances so that you would not trust blindly.

    Internationally too we go for confidence building measures to build trust, held various bilateral and multilateral talks so that mere apprehensions do not bring down the relations. Even when trade starts we first go for PTA (preferential trade agreement) and then go for Free Trade Agreement. Trust building is a step by step process. And at every step it is your responsibility that you do not lose out because of greed or some short term achievement. So be trustworthy and see the change. Let’s trust and not ditch and make this world a better place to live.

    • black mamba

      hey eco friendly 😀
      in my opinion, hands down it is the best written essay 😀
      (there are a few grammatical mistakes here and there though)

      There are so many points that i loved in this 😀 specially the layout is very very well structured.
      1) “But we still continue to trust others because world cannot sustain without trust and hope.” –> very good point not mentioned by many.
      2) “There are people (read Vijay Mallya) who borrow money even at lesser rates and cheats bank by becoming willful defaulters and there are people (villagers) who borrow money at rates as high as 24% but repay it on time (MFI- Bandhan success story).” —> again a gem of an example.
      3) “open borders with Nepal” another great example, and you can club it with how Nepali government use India as the reason for their lacks —> a serious jolt to relations between the two.
      4) the question of ‘why trust is broken’ is actually dealt with very well. 🙂
      5) but the last line became a nail forcefully hammered on the top instead if being the cherry on top :/

      Ignore if not useful.
      KWAR 😀

      hi..nicely written..flow and language is awsome..I have following observations..
      1. I find essay moving in a bit hapazard manner..imo..like when I write , I put stress on one thing , complete it and then move to next..here things are crissing each other like while talking about importance of trust u have also explained trust definition…may be its ur style…
      2. just read only conclusion and read the topic..is not it abit mismatch…..conclusion se lga ki essay is about why people broke trust…

      rest is beautiful..nice attempt..

      hey eco a very nice read ..with lots of good examples and covering very well the various dimensions of trust .. but i guess the essay got slightly carried away and in most examples focussed only on “trust” part of it and so the actual essay topic takes a backseat ..so kindly look into this aspect .. like intro eg was complete as in it took care of both parts of the topic really well .. overall indeed a good one .. keep writing and reviewing 🙂

      hey eco friendly,
      its a good essay from you
      diversity is the one thing that strikes me here.
      language has been good and smooth flow.
      trust broken part is defined well

      only negative is that you have focussed more on the trust part and left the breaking part and what the essay demands.
      anyways it was a very nice effort.

      please take some time to review my essay. it is somewhere down here or alternatively here is the link

      2. Flow was OK upto 4th para but later a bit deviated
      3. Story was good
      4. Overall impressive

      your essay had many things to fetch you good marks
      brilliant work brother 🙂
      Only suggestion from my side would be regarding your conclusion. Technical terms like PTA and FTA should be avoided in conclusion imo.. also your conclusion seems another para of the body (means giving another dimension)
      you can separate it into two to give a better conclusion.. last lines are good
      please review mine at your ease
      thank you 🙂

      • Eco-friendly

        Sorry for being so late.

        Your intro part and body part covered multiple dimensions. Liked trust deficit, India’s foreign relation and connectivity with social part too. Trust on self is also good.

        Areas to improve-
        1) 9th and 10th para though they are connected but something (may be flow) is missing. May be reframing of 10th para first line can help.
        2) You can add why trust breaks its after effects and how to prevent such cheatings and trust breaking activity.
        3) Trusting blindly can also be added and its side-effects.

        Thank you. Sorry again for so late reply.
        All the best

    • I4anI

      Comprehensive ! I think covered all dimensions. Bro please review mine too 🙂 Request 🙂

  • Prash

    kindly review friends..bhoot dil se likha hai ..:P
    INTRODUCTION – The very first thought that came to my mind after reading the essay topic was a small story that I had read during my school days. It was a story of a school boy who had accidently lost his school fee for that month and was very sad with this. After knowing the incident, principle assured him to give a fee waiver for that month but that was not enough for the boy. He said to himself,” what if, my parents will come to know that I have lost the money? THEY WILL NEVER TRUST ME IN FUTURE.” Yes, such is the value of trust.
    MEANING OF TRUST- Now, to understand trust in a better manner, take out a note (except rupee 1) out of your pocket and read the lines , written over it with the name of RBI governor,carefully. It states,” I promise to pay the bearer a sum of XXX rupees.”
    This promise reflects the deep trust that we have in RBI. So, in plain words, trust stands for deep faith. It’s about consistency and certainty in behaviour that we except from someone. For example, we trust our family and friends for their good will towards us. However, this concept is not restricted to only human interactions and can be extended to any sphere of society. For example, we have a deep trust in our constitution and democratic institutions.
    IMPORTANCE OF TRUST – Trust is very fundamental in functioning of all spheres of society. Trust deficit can lead to conflicts and chaos. Take the example of Tax that we pay to government. Surely, apart from legal sanction, it is the good will and trust in government that minimize cases of tax avoidance and tax eviction. Trust is also fundamental in creating Law abiding citizens who have deep trust in law of land.
    Further, the very foundation of the institute of family rests upon trust that all family members share with each other. Just imagine a family where there is not trust among husband and wife, brothers and sisters. Can such family survive? Surely, no
    Similarly, it would not be wrong to say that whole international peace and security depends upon trust that nations have upon each other’s intentions and good will. Two world wars of past were the result of the deep mistrust among fellow nations.
    TRUST BUIDING: A TIME TAKING PROCESS – Trust building a not a one day process. It may take days, months, years and sometimes even one’s life span is short for that. Reason being the two essential steps in trust building process –
    a. Good will
    b. Reinforcement
    Good will is the most fundamental step in trust building. For example, our constitution has a good will for welfare of its natives. This good will has generated a trust in us towards our constitution. However, only good will is not sufficient. It has been reinforced over the period of more than 60 years by its working. Judiciary has also contributed in this reinforcement by interpreting various provisions of constitution.
    This reinforcement step is very crucial and time taking in trust building. It is being tested in tough times. For example, India is capable of nuclear power. Its good will to use that power in a peaceful manner has generated a trust of international community towards India. And this trust is being reinforced over the period of time. Even in tough times (like war with Pakistan), India has kept its promise by not violating international law and has reinforced this trust.
    TRUST BREAKING: A QUICK PROCESS – Unlike, trust building which takes time, trust breaking is very quick process. This shows the very fragile nature of trust. For example, just look at our relations with our neighbor Pakistan. It takes a lot of time and efforts to build confidence and trust and then suddenly one terrorist activity spoils the whole process. Similarly, all good work and measures of government goes to vain when any minister is being accused of corruption and wrong doings and trust is being broken.
    There can be varied reasons for trust breaking like misunderstanding or changed priorities or change in good will or change in behavior. Whatever the reason may be, results are quick and instant. For example, varied stances of developing and developed countries over environmental issue have resulted in mistrust and halted the whole process of environment conservation.
    WAY FORWARD- After seeing the importance and delicacy of trust, it’s is important to take steps to make a trustworthy society around ourselves. Following measures can be taken-
    a. At personal and societal level, values of cooperation, companionship, mutual respect, love, compassion, loyalty etc. should be inculcated in the childhood itself. Pillars of socialization i.e. family, school, civil society should play a larger role in that.
    b. At organizational level, innovative practices like citizen charter, Right to information etc. Should be strengthened to bring transparency and reinforce trust.
    c. At governmental level, measures should be taken to curb corruption and make whole machinery citizen centric to curb the trust deficit between citizens and government.
    d. At global level, nations should set examples by respecting the international law and conventions to generate trust for lasting world peace.
    CONCLUSION- Surely, trust is among those virtues which got build after years of efforts. They are quintessential and indispensable for a harmonious and peaceful society. However, it’s fragile and delicate nature demands a careful handling. With the suggestions given above, we will surely build a trustworthy society with highest human values.

        keep writting

    • Hi Prash,
      Very good try.
      My only suggestion would be to not use headings because it gives a feel of school level essay. Rest, the flow was good 🙂 slowly and steadily it became a nice piece 🙂 examples were good.
      Under the way forward heading you wrote in points, try and avoid it.

      Kindly review mine 🙂 thanks

    • khush ho jao phle kyunki dil se likha hai 🙂
      You have explained your points quite well. I dont know if you can use headers like these or not. Ask other people about this as well.
      I was not able to get some points like “India is capable of nuclear power”.India is indeed a nuclear power? anything else you wanted to specify? 🙂
      flow was good, some examples de skte ho beech me social causes and historic or women centric.
      Dil se likha hai, acha likha hai! improvemnet can be done but it was good.
      Conclusion me aap apna upar wala sara part jo justify usko define kar skte in passive way rather than simply ending it,.
      Thank you dear friend. you may ignore this review if not found useful 🙂

    • minaxi

      Hello Prash…
      A nice attempt.. However I think, it will be bette, if you write in paragraph rather than points as you tried in last paragraph.Contents are good and beautifully represented. However overall presentation can be improved.
      Thanks… And if get time plz review mine too. 🙂

    • sankar

      very good contents

    • Eco-friendly

      bro your content is good and you have tried to cover multiple aspects too. You have given it a nice attempt.

      Where to improve-
      1) instead of points, work on writing in para’s, work on presentation part.
      2) you can add- why trust is being broken, its effects

      I know you will surely improve upon. All the best

      Sry for the delay too….

    Trust is like a pyramid of cards taking built by taking delicate care & efforts, but a second of adverse wave is enough to diminish the hard work built through years of pain & labor. As we refer that, Rome was not built in a day, likewise trust is not something developed within short duration, it is a concerted process through years of understanding & sacrifices coupled with truth, and once established it requires continuous effort to sustain the trust, & not letting deficit to arise.

    One of the best thing about trust is that it has to be double sided, trust can never be one-sided otherwise its lifetime is close to none. It is like a castle build with white marbles where each stone contributes equally & complement each other, even if a single stone gets damaged or blacken, the look is as good as piece of ruins. Strenuous kindness, and path of truth is the best way to build on trust.

    One of the best ways to maintain easy flow of trust is following the path of truth. It not only becomes easy to get along with your thoughts but also leaves no scope for damaging relations. Trust is essential not just for personal life, but equally in all spheres of all life, ranging from human values to business to studies till work-ship. Professionalism is a trait everyone wishes to adorn in managing personal & outer life, while undergoing business you not only need to gain trust of market, but of customer, bosses, seniors & also juniors. When people start trusting you, the passage gets simplified, obstacles are nullified & work output is efficiently enhanced.

    But, one should be extremely sensitive with maintaining care & compassion towards not letting it go in waste. Silly acts which give momentary pleasure need to be minimized, and long term aims should be aimed at which not just give greater amount of pleasure, but contains the importance of following right means to achieve Right path. A moment of lie, or a damage can harm the relations for rest of the times. If an act is done which disables trust formed in years, all good deeds are forgotten, and what is left behind is pain, agony, mistrust, & sufferings.

    Rich history gives us multiple examples which strengthen the resolve to follow path of truth, Gandhiji had an ability not found in any other personality which was trust of both diametrically opposite sections of society. He had trust of zamindar, he had trust of peasants. He contained trust of Brahmans, he contained trust of Untouchables. And this was not built in a day, it look decades of roaming around the nation with a single piece of cloth, understanding the concerns of people & never deterring from the path called Satyagraha. Till his last breath he never lost trust of people, and with contiguous efforts led India to being independent. Power of trust can be understood when August 1946, Muslim decided to celebrate “Direct Action Day”, when Cabinet Mission did not allow formation of Pakistan, Mountbatten had formed an army of 75000 soldiers to stop any incidents of communal violence. This army failed miserably, but then Gandhiji in Kolkata sat on a fast until death in a Muslim’s house against violence. The riots were stopped, and showed the world the greatness of a giant leader who constructed trust among Indians irrespective of cast, creed, religion, sex & stood tall when India needed him the most.

    The importance of trust was also seen in modern India when Constituent Assembly was drafting the Constitution & when it was getting adopted on 26 November 1949, not a single member who had reservation on various clauses gave a negative vote, all 284 members present gave their consent & India became republic. Independent India saw multiple incidents where Parliament stood by Government because it had trust in the functioning of its leaders which they had accumulated in years of hard work, like issues dealing with Kashmir, Pakistan, China in early saw negligible questions because of legitimacy Nehruji earned throughout his career.

    But, India does have examples where trust was broken in a single go & shook the Indian fraternity. A recent example of Cricket matches being fixed which blew away careers of several players including former Indian captain who was loved by all, but a mistake was enough for him to regret throughout his life. Not just a glorious career came to an end, but also created a dark spot in a game called Cricket.

    But, India does show examples where trust was not just regained by personalities, rather made them taller because they followed path of truth & defied all odds to bridge the gap again. One such example is Mir Ranjan Negi on whom a blockbuster movie was also made called “Chak De India”, after loss to Pakistan in finals of a hockey game, he was boycotted by family, society, Hockey Association, and Indian masses. But, he followed the Right path & helped Indian women team won the Hockey World Cup as a coach when they had rare outside chances.

    One should be careful of actions, & always consider the importance of means along with ends. A delicate balance is essential for both to sustain & the results are optimal when both continue to walk hand in hand. The time one would start considering its importance, chances of creation of trust deficit will be minimized, and prosperity will show its wings.

    TRUST is a trait which can’t be quantified.it is something which pervades many of our personal,proffesional,formal and non-formal relationships.good people often take years to build trust with someone by being honest and truthful.but sometimes it is just an error of judgement or a moment of weakness which takes away that trust.we can see numerous egs in this regard.like the husband -wife relationship is one of utmost trust,respect and dignity.people live a happy married life by building the same. but many a times this trust gets disturbed by some other person due to lust,greed or any other cause.here it only takes a few seconds to break years of trust they had developed between them.in such cases the other person feels cheated,disgraced and disgruntled.thus its important that people understand the depth of meaning of trust when they are trusted by somebody and act accordingly

    similarly the relationship with close friends is that of a strong bond bulid on trust,honesty and reciprocity.friends freely exchange their sucess,failures,joys,ambitions and prorities in life with one another.many of them who are childhood yaars and have known and understood each other for years.in such cases if a friend or close one breaks the trust due to jealousy,money or conflicting ambitions it shatters the relationship into pieces in a moment.trusting one another which was the base of the relationship on which the strong tower of friendship was established is broken down to pieces.this makes trust an indispensable trait of any relationship and needs to be preserved and nurtured carefully.

    however it is not only private but professional relationships are also equally demanding.the senior-junior ,employer-employee,master-servant,colleague-colleague relationships also need trust .the superior needs to be sure that his orders are carried out honestly.junior needs to be aware that he is not misguided.an unconditional trust needs to be developed here, not only just to enhance efficiency and effectiveness but also to create a positive atmosphere.in such scenarios if people adopt unethical and immoral methods with blatant disregard to orders and directives it not only braks trust but hurts other honest employess as well.eg- recently an officer walked out of MHA with sensitive files leading to leaks.thus the co-genial working of a department got disturbed by just one act of dishonesty braking not only trust of ofiicers amongst them but also that of general public.these egs reiterate that trust is a positive human trait and needs to be carefully encouraged

    the notion of trust is so pervasive that it goes even beyond borders.infact it is very imp component in international relations for better development of ties b/w nations.for eg-INDIA’S support to the cause of palestine since independence on moral and civilsational grounds has helped us develop better ties with them.infact trust is so imp that when the recent policy of govt started tilting towards israel govt had to recede beacuse the trust that you have build on ethical and just grounds since years will vanquish in secondS if we fully support israel .siimilarly india showed trust in CHINA post -independence through PANCHSHEEL and HINDI-CHINI BHAI BHAI policy.but the trust generated was broken in 1962 within seconds of hearing the news of attack of chinese forces on indian posts.this is the value and relevance of trust .here we need to be on constant vigil while dealing with nations if we want to maintain TRUST in these relationships

    seeing across the various dimensions of trust we can see that it genrally hurts bad when someone breaks it .for this its imp that we strongly analyse a person or any entity thoroughly before trusting him.whether do background checks , analyse his history or do previous relatioships studies,many methods can be employed but they need to be done as and when required and according to the situation. official matters,recruitments to sensitive positions,confidential reports ,character reports,employer grading are some methods that can be applied here. but as is said that TRUST cannot be quantified or inborn it needs to be gained. in this context it becomes necessary to nurture the same from chidhood.then only can we attain a trustworthy society free of social confilcts and tensions

    • aashish 2000

      Good attempt Ajay,
      Intro can be collective of points which you are going to discuss in the coming paragraphs my friend… I feel you can write better….
      The connectives can be used to enrich the content and links….. We all know ethical terms cant be quantified.. Instead of mentioning that… you can mention what makes it qualitative… how it can be build up…. like stating building trust between government and citizens is essential for good economy and harmony in the society.
      Overall, its a good read… Keep writing….my friend…

      • ajay

        Thanx for the detailed review aashish will work on your suggestions and try to improve the trust between govt and its citizens point is noteworthy..yes I tried for mentioning the qualitative aspects need to use more.connectives I think and work on more dimensions will review yours …thanx friend

    ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

    Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

    Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

    But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

    Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

    Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

    Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

    We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

    Trust takes years to build and seconds to break.

    When it comes to human nature, the most essential ingredient found in its relationship building process is TRUST. Whenever humans come in contact, the first thing they judge about each other, is whether they can TRUST the person or not. It is so because we always tend to get tilted towards security, towards surity, inherently we all are risk averse, and by risk averse I mean we wish to trust the person , be sure of his character and loyality, before getting any closer. This shows how important it is to have trust , that’s why it is difficult to earn , but at the same time it’s the most fragile element, takes nothing to losse it. Miniscule breach , and you losse it , with no coming back.

    For it being the basis of every possible relationship on earth, it is the most valued one and hence most difficult to be earned.while you maintain mutual trust, you become duty bound to be loyal, truthful,even if you have to be critical, and most honest to each other, which means that you just can’t afford to be even slightly unethical.
    Trust is something which can change the very laws of nature.
    Mutaul trust, trust on your own self, trust on the destiny, trust on your hard work, plays an important role in giving people a meaningful shape to their lives. But trust in another human being is the most valued one, the animal instinct of humans, makes it the most essential for mere survival in the society.
    Since the day we are born, we seek to trust someone , first its the mother, the baby searches for his saviour, then as we grow, trust in siblings, parents, even the blind trust on teachers, makes small kids believe in things which they may or may not believe, or are able to accept.
    With adolescent we try to find this trust in our friends, in our lives lines. At that fragile age sharing things becomes the need and for that trust is reqd.eventually with maturity hitting us we tend to make more wise judgements, we start picking out the people whom we can count on.
    At work place, at home, in a married relationship everywhere, the struggle to believe or not to believe changes the course of our action.

    But,
    Once this trust is lost, earned with so much of efforts, of years, the thin line b/w credibility and liability breaks down. History has been evident, the breach of many treaties has brought plenty of blood shed to the countries. The breach of trust has done nothing but brought hatred , anguish and wars. At the same time the trust has won many unbeatable wars.
    While, history gives us lessons, international relations makes us experience and make judgement calls. This is nothing but lack of trust which has led to no referendum in the valley of J&k.
    The lack of trust b/w tow nations, constant violation of trust has made the boundaries real ones.

    While Arjuna, put his trust in Krishna he won the war, Duryodhan couldn’t trust him and chose his army, results we all know.
    While a business partner pits his trust in other, mere breach leads tolaw suits, the extreme steps taken by the one whose trust is failed uopn, is because of the simple fact that , that perosn actually invested in him. When somones puts his/ her trust in someone, they actually play a gamble with faith that the other person will not make them loose. With trsut we actually RELY ON OTHER PERSON’S JUDGEMENT.
    and when that judgement doesn’t prove to be rational enough, we feel betrayed.
    The mere fact that once a person is hit by a car, always follows traffic rules tehreon, proves that it’s actually the instincts which losse credibility.
    The breach of trust leads the one to think of being victimised and suferrer, it makes one think that he lost something, while other didn’t care, hence it becomes really hard to again trust the same person.

    From daily life to political arena, we can see how, When one promise goes unfulfilled the doubt grows.this doubt is not on the person but on our own decision that if we were right to choose the person and trust him, thus,it becomes really difficult to go back,breach of trust intentional or intentional is simple, it takes just a guilty mind , a messed up mind,a mind not strong enough to think appropriately, but it takes real ethics and morality combined with loyality to gain trust. Hence, it takes years to build one while seconds to loose.

      Intro- simple yet good (y)
      Next you brought forth the importance and reason for trusting someone. Better to provide a example- like why do we trust our family, say, friends, and how do we try to maintain there trust on us through thick and thin. That gives inner peace.
      International scenario- usme positives bhi de sakti hai. Like how maintaining trust proved to be beneficial. Like India Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan- mutual cooperation resulted in mutual benefit. On the other hand China breached out trust. Pakistan se strained relations. The trust SE nations put on India because of the self less service provided to them unlike china who tries to dominate them and maintain a hegemonic appearance.
      Basically example se substantiate kar de apne facts ko to word limit bhi sahi rahegi beacause tera essay seems short.
      Uske baad- i mean positves ke baad, negatives pe aa. Like how breach of trust led to destruction in diplomatic ties, in personal relationships- usse flow rhega essay me.

      Businees wala example- good though, but randomly place kar diya hai use tune. Use starting me rakh- like personal, fir business, fir diplomatic, aise..
      “takes seconds to break”- ise bhi substantiate kar. Last me 1-2 para may be u can take.
      Conclusion was okay.
      Overall, i can say improvement hai- so cheers for that (Y)
      Bus aise hi improve karti ja. U will catch soon 🙂
      p.s- i haven’t written 😛

      • Tanu Singhal

        Hahaha thanks

        After many weeks I felt I am back in league.

        Right
        Ye business wala point shuru me Ana chaiye tha…
        Right totally missed the positives of trust building.

        Yes will continue girl.
        Won’t let u down, after all it was you who pushed me since starting 😉
        😀

        • Isha

          Kuch jyada hi critical ho jati hu main tere sath hamesha, but you always accept everything so easily (Y)
          Keep it up and keep improving. 🙂

      • silva

        your conclusion is good but beginning was not much attracting to me to read this but thik tha …thoda individualistic tha ..mujey laga aisa !!

    • aashish 2000

      First of all, I like your way of attempt…
      In introduction..you stated first contact human thinks of trust… I’m disagreeing with you on this point.. Because, humans never think of trust when they come in contact…. the point of trust comes in light when any personal issue should be shared with other…in case of humans….I felt your point lack practical view… Please be focus on that…
      In example of Duryodhana..you mentioned we all know…..Please mention what happened…it states that your view is particular and to the point…
      Overall, it is a good read… Keep writing…my friend…

      • Tanu Singhal

        1. A rational human always does think of trust no matter what. Rarely does we ignore how a person is, else while building any sort of relationship we always check that person’s character. If it can be trusted.
        2. It was totally practical, else tell me without trust how can u d
        eal with anyone, either u trust someone and be honest with them. Or u dontand be careful with them, u don’t remain fickle minded ever, wrt any person.
        3.duryodhan’s case, he didn’t trust Krishna and thought that he will betray him on field, here we can see sheer lack of trust made him chose the wrong side.another example your above mentioned doubt only.

        Thanks a tonne for the review 🙂

    • Iconoclast

      Overall a Nice read. Few suggestions
      a. Philosophy ke chakkar mein examples kam rah gaye
      b. Conclusion looks abrupt
      c. You have given examples what happens when trust is lost but not explained why it takes long to build
      d. Also Insights has suggested, to give suggestions on how to build trust like openness, reciprocity.. etc.
      Please review mine

    TRUST TAKE YEARS TO BUILD,SECONDS TO BREAK

    In famous movie Deewar starring Amitabh Bachchan ,Shashi kapur and Nirupma Rao as mother of duo.Vijay ( Amitabh Bachchan) amassed huge wealth from illegal means and had every luxury at his end. But the moment his mother came to know the source of this huge wealth all trust which she had in him was vanished in few seconds.He could not reconcile his mother for staying with him any more because being a mother it was very hard to accept the reality of his son.She was completely shattered from inside as her extreme trust in his son was shackled.

    Why did this happen?.The base of the relationship was false, treachery and a feeling of revenge.The foundation of any relationship whether personal or professional is trust.This trust is emboldened by honesty,truthfulness and commitment in the relationship.The relations between parents and wards,siblings,husband and wife,employer and employee,government and citizens,even international relations of any country follows the same connotations.

    Any relationship is to be nurtured first with love, care,concern,commitment,mutual understanding and a shared vision.But nurturing these divine values which strengthen the relationship takes time.Giving space to relations is equally important where one feels free to embark upon his/her due course without any undue stress and expectations.

    Growing matrimonial disputes , wards sending their parents to age old homes, youths resorting to addictions all reflects the constrained relations.What is the reason?.Reason is that of “Time” only because today one hardly bothers for giving ones time to others in such a busy competitive life.Time to understand the feeling of others and developing mutual understanding.People are so engulfed with the feeling of insecurity that they fear for granting space to others in relationship resulting suffocating relations and departed ways.Misunderstanding and Suspicion sucks the liveliness of any relationship and it ends in no time.

    In professional relations too it is the sincerity of employer and employee towards each other which builds trust in the whole organisation and attains success in the long run.This trust to be reaped consistently with hard work,discipline of employees and welfare policies of the management.Even organisation takes no time in demoting those employees taking long leaves citing no proper reason who had earlier given high performance.Even employees take no time in leaving the organisations for breach of trust and joining other organisations.But for the success this trust has to be ensured consistently among them.

    Lets see the relations between government and citizens.The image of government is tarnished due to corruption scandals.Any this is severe breach of trust on the part of government.Because it is the aspirations of honest governance of citizens who voted them to power.A single breach overshadows all the good work done by the government so next time citizens grow more conscious and vote them out from power.

    How much demotivating to hear corruption scandals for those whom one admired most?.Recently leak of papers by Panama legal firm Mossac Fosenka unearthed very prominent names from India and abroad.Although its efficacy has to be tested following its confirmation but already it tarnished their wonderful images.Many prominent personalities have also started resigning from their offices after this leak.

    Lets understand the given statement by taking India’s foreign policy measures in order to maintain better relations among them.1962 China war was waged after Indian the then Indian Premier J.L Nehru invited chinese counterpart to visit India and allowed him to see its military arrangements too.Chinese PM was quick to sense the shortcomings of India and waged a war later on breaching the very trust of India which India regretted later and thinks thrice before embarking upon any such thing.

    Even the relations with Pakistan is tensed due to its breach of trust several times and India has to be very wise in dealing with Pakistan and sense other nations measures too proactively.Recent agreement of US with India regarding patrolling of South china sea must be dealt consciously by India because India has no direct interest with it.And stop becoming a puppet in the hand of others. As India’s relations is normal with China and raising it against would not be a good move again because building trust takes a long time and seconds to break.So India should act in a balanced way seeking its all round interest for the long term.

    Trust is indeed magical .It transforms the nature of relationships and usher authenticity to it.No matter how the relations are but may be reaped by a genuine love and concern.Above all it gives a satisfaction of fulfilled life.But every relationship has to manured with commitment and a shared concern which demands time and should be a consistent to maintain a flow because flow is essential for life and stagnation is death.

      Please review!!

    • YdoVfall

      Explained trust well. But can you take example from Hindi movie? What if the examiner is a bit conservative Tamilian? (I want your answer regarding this, because I don’t know if such examples could be used)
      Good examples as well. And you explained them well.
      You concluded by why to maintain trust? This could have been eloborted.
      But again, go multi-dimensionally;
      What does trust mean in various jargons. Ex: what does it mean legally, ethically, etc.
      Where does “breach of trust” happen exactly. You could use examples while explaining the content. Not use Examples directly to explain the content. There is bit of subtlety.

      • Jaya Swatantra

        Thanks for review … yes i think this or any example from any movie may be taken just to let ones side truly explained.. your points duly noted … shall improve… 🙂

      • ESWAR

    • Beautiful essay Jaya ji 🙂
      Good use of examples 🙂 🙂
      Amazing read 🙂
      Mera bhi padh lijiye 🙂

      • Jaya Swatantra

        Bilkul bas thoda sa samay dijiye Simran ji.. it would be an honor to read yours.. 🙂

    • Eco-friendly

      Except for the fourth para everything is good enough.

      Your intro was quite innovative. But i would say- movie stories may be avoided as they are mere fictions. Some real life things can give your essay plus points. Also try to cover other aspects like- why do breach of trust happens, what are the solutions.
      Overall nice read
      Review mine whenever find time…..:)
      All the best

      helo swatantra!!:):)

      starting intro masttttt………:):)
      but one only thing is u started with great philo but at the end jst explain examples only >>> i mean ethical se batein thodi si kum thi phir>> better same content maintain rehta>> balance kar dete starting k philo ko baad k examples k sath……….. bsss itna sa hi:):):)
      baki coverage of examples is seriously very gooood:):)

          ethical se i mean philo base in snd half of ur eassy…….:):):D

    • Isha

      Hi Jaya, my views-
      Intro- i am not sure about this experiment. Lets wait for other to review.
      Flow was good, but connectivity problem was there between paras.
      ” Lets see”; “Lets understand”- aise mat start kiya kar new para. Breaks the flow.
      You focused only on the negative side- why and how, what causes the breach of trust till the 2nd last para. Starting me you can also explore the importance of trust in a positive way. Why is it necessary and what it provides you with in a positive way.
      Examples were apt.
      Conclusion could be better.
      Overall, you have improved a lot. Keep going like this. ATB.
      If you find time, have a look at mine as well. Thanks 🙂

      Hello Jaya..
      Very good write up Jaya.. really enjoyed it reading, But movie related intro do not look appropriate, (IMO)
      In third last and second last paragraph- looks policy and politics related.
      Overall a good read ..
      Thanks.. 🙂 If find time plz review mine too

    • G.

      hey jaya
      it was a good essay overall.
      there are too many ‘lets’. i think you should not use this, even if you use it use only once that too in the early parts of your essay.
      india china example is very common, even i wrote it 😛
      giving time to people is a good point, it shows you have understanding of relations and thier meaning. include the importance of communications as well.

      you have given many examples, which shows your diversity, but dont make your essay hostage of examples. use them to forward your essay. this is a moral ethical and philosophical essay, you should use some philosophy as well. you have used it, but it is rare.
      most people here in insights use more examples and less of substantive matter. i dont know if i am going wrong or what. but that is my view, you can ignore this one if you want.

      but nice essay overall.
      please find time to review mine as well. here is the link

    • Nupur

      Hey Jaya. Nice attempt as usual and some few observations also from my side:

      1: today when your essay was becoming a excited one then suddenly it ends. really was expecting more. i think you have over emphasised on the foreign relation part. you can cut down a example from them.
      2: Why the trust breaching occurs is somewhat missing. Are those reasons materialistic one or it is the lack of value education that causes the trust deficit is not clear.
      3: it seems that trust deficit is only occuring in modern times. though the intensity of trust deficit has been more nowadays but historical perspective of the trust deficit part is missing and if it is now more frequent in modern times than why ? what change has come in society.
      4: Solution part?
      5: Difference between trust and blind trust as the examples of international relations i think every country is a opportunistic one and if india lost to china in war it was our miscalculations about the strength of neighbour. so whenever blind trust had been there trust has been breached more. We never trusted anyone and just our relations were for mutual benefits. See we trusted russia in vikramaditya matter and again we were cheated.

      you have great potential dear and though it being a nice one you can do even more better. sorry for harsh review as i am also not too good in essay but i think my review will help you in a positive way.
      plz review mine.:))

      • Jaya Swatantra

    • yogi

      Hello Jaya 🙂
      why only 776 words ?
      intro: good, unique style, i liked it 🙂
      you have covered the time part indirectly by the time we don’g give to family, but the link with the give quote there is missing . In a line or two you could have mentioned why this time is crucial in building the trust and why investing in it is must
      flow is fine
      IR dimension of the quote is well covered,
      citizen vs govt. –good but not that strong. You could have quoted examples from history like indira gandhi and emergency and subsequent massive defeat in the elections
      in remaining 300-400 words u could have written the other aspects of the quote , suggestions to build trust,
      conclusion: needs elaboration
      plz have critical look at mine 🙂
      Om Shanti 🙂

        Thanks for reviewing Yogi ji.. sry for delayed response as there was connectivity problem.. would certainly review yours.. 🙂

    • Tanu Singhal

      Hey jaya.
      1.starting with a movie script, never do that. It’s almost fatal. U r writing for upsc.
      2.too much emphasis on love and care, while u can see a doctor and his patient, a lawyer and his client, all professionals are bound by trust, when there is no such emotional feeling.
      3. This quote , I think, refers more towards ideological and social aspect. Bringing the IR and politics is apt, but too much on emphasis family isn’t, cz family out of love , does give u chances.
      4.I saw lack of interlinkage.
      5.you have good command over switching topics but bring more connectivity.

      Keep writing.. I enjoyed reading it 🙂

      • Jaya Swatantra

        Thanks for reviewing Tanu…your points duly noted .. will improve.. 🙂

    • Michael

      Pehle Positives:

      The flow was nice.. Nice language… good connect .. proper articulation … a perfect fit…

      ab negatives:

      In my opinion when you qoute a story.. never write the name of movie,person or novel in the begining.. you need to keep the person in suspence .. he must feel excited to read the story.. bring variations in the story… make up your own story own characters.. or write your own life without naming yourself…

      2nd and third paragraph “clocked around time” hahaha… thats okay two lines would do no harm.. but again it went to the “time” “look out agent jaya” examiner might get bored…

      ah aa ah… the variety of examples missing.. bring international relation,phillosophy,ethics,economy,examples from kings,leaders etc…

      Q:How was jaya’s essay?
      a)poor
      b)okay okay
      c)good
      d)very good
      e) Extra ordinary

      ans: option (d+c)/2
      do the math 😀 😀

    Trust is like a skyscraper. It is constructed slowly step by step. First the foundation is built, then the next floor, and so on. It takes a long time to build such a strong structure. However, if even a single floor is damaged or destroyed, the whole structure weakens or may even collapse.

    The genesis of a society can be traced to the existence of trust between the different members. It is does not come overnight. Years of experience and adventure helps to weave the people into a society and the thread which binds them together is trust for each other. Even the early man understood the significance of togetherness and hence he formed small groups to build a united front in order to survive in a harsh environment. Such groups kept on expanding into larger and larger groups, culminating into the big societies we see today.
    Societies are based on trust at different levels which gives it a cohesive force. This may develop due to a common origin or may even develop due to the day to day experiences of a person. For instance, people belonging to a state have an affinity which is the result of a well constructed trust that has come into being due to years of living together. Another societal institution is family which is based on a trust of a greater magnitude. A child trusts her mother the most because there is trust that is built up from the minute she is born. Years of nurturing makes the child feel secure in the lap of her mother.

    Trust is fragile, therefore needs to be handled with care just like a glass. Take for instance the example of a piece of thread. The minute the thread breaks, we attempt to turn it back into its original state. We tie both the pieces and the thread turns into a single piece again. However, what we do not understand is that even when we have ties it , the strength of that piece of thread can never be restored. There is a knot and it will be there forever. Similarly, it takes years to build trust but seconds to break it and everything collapses.
    Today we are witnessing so many upheavals in our society because there are trust issues. For instance, the Muslims population in Europe lived peacefully until the surge of terrorism that has swept the world today. The trust which was present between the Muslims and people belonging to other religions has been injured by the bombings. It is not that all Muslims are responsible for this but because the majority of terrorists are Muslims, the trust has been fractured.

    In India, Nestle’s Maggi was a much loved food item. It was part of almost everyone’s childhood. Even the adults loved it as a life saver in exam time. But the minute there was the news that it had lead, the trust on this brand was broken. It will surely take years before people will have the same trust level they had before this incident took place.

    The National Congress party is a known face of the freedom movement in India.
    People had the trust on this party since it had given the great leaders of freedom movement like Jawaharlal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel and so on. However, in 1970s, because of the proclamation of emergency without any solid reason, at the time of congress rule, the trust the people had on this party was corroded.

    Recently, in the state of Haryana, there was massive violence on the pretext of jat reservation. The shops were burnt and the whole state witnessed vandalism. The harmony that existed between different factions of the society in the state was disturbed and the trust was broken. Years of good relations are now a sight of bitterness. Just a few days of violence has successfully broken the years of trust between the people.
    At international level, we often witness how relations between different countries are driven by trust between them. For instance, before the Indo-China war , the slogan of ‘Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai’ was famous. But after the war of 1962, both the nations are even today unable to trust each other and move forward.

    Life teaches everyone that there is strength in unity. The concept of karma guides us on a path of good deeds based on give and take in the society. All this builds the institution of trust which binds the whole society together. It involves a slow pace which gives it the strength to withstand in difficult times. Even at international level, the relationship between different countries is an evidence of how historical incidents of trust or mistrust are seldom forgotten. One instance of bitterness changes the whole way in which people behave and society operates. This is because trust takes years to build but seconds to break.

He loses all his contacts suddenly and peter’s wife also starts avoiding him. All staff members of the department are now against him. He stands on the verge to hit back to prison…
    A small mistake and he loses all respect. It took years for him to build trust but seconds to break

    Human being is driven by emotions and all relations base themselves on trust. A slight trust deficit has potential to ruin even the blood relations. our day to day live depends upon trusting our surrounding.

    What is trust?
    Trust is a virtual signature for authenticity. It defines the a part of a charater. If someone is worthy of trust or not depends upon his past behavioural tendencies and attitude. Trust has two entities. First being the one who has to establish his credibility and other is the one who has to acknowledge the credibility. To trust someone requires a rational and bold approach and confidence. Trusting blindly is nothing but jumping into the deep waters without boat where one may swim or drowned.
    A person who seeks trust of others have to be honest, Rational. His past attitude,decision and the success is pre-requisite for trusting him.
    Mohammed bin tugluq brought many schemes one of that was the currency replacement. All his schemes were failed. He almost lost the trust in his council and subjects.
    Mr. Pachauri was known for his work in the field of environment but the back to back cases of sexual assault has made government confiscate his official functions.
    Nepal was one of our close ally. We have a shared culture and a goodwill buit fir decades. The recent earthquacke and aid by Indian millitary in rescue operation is appluadable which got recognization across the world. But the madhesis issue and blockade of supply had hurt our relation with nepal and eventually china has succeded in building her influence in the Himalayan state.

    A famous doha from sant kabir reminds us of the notion of trust:

    “Bahuri dhaga prem ka, Mat todo chatkaye
    tute pe fir na jude, Jude ganth pad jaye”

    बहुरि धागा प्रेम का मत तोड़ो चटकाए
    टूटे पे फिर न जुड़े ,जुड़े गांठ पड़ जाये।

    {dont break the thread of love..cant be attached again,even if attached there will be a knot}

    • Hey Michael I’ll review yours. You review mine 😛 hisaaab Bara bar 🙂 waiting for the feedback 🙂

      • ESWAR

        Dear brother, I have posted essay, please review

    • aashish 2000

      Good one my friend…
      Intro you mentioned we cant trust blindly.. But it differs according to the party that you are going to trust.. For example. Government can be trusted in economic sphere….
      Parents can be trusted in personal sphere…. .I feel the relevance of that point cant be suited well in the picture you portrayed…
      After seeing and reviewing your answers, I feel you can write better…my friend with various dimensions…
      Anyway good read my friend.. .Keep writing..

      • Michael

        yeah buddy… i know i didnt put effort today… will write with full vigour next time

    • Intro is very very good. i like these type of stories. I dont know about examiner.
      Micheal, Truth part is well exaplined. Uske baad wale examples are also apt 🙂
      but diversification is not there. Aap wo kar skte ho. I will not tell you how, coz i have read ur many answers and you know how to do that.
      diffeerent angle se justify kar kste ho social, women etc jaise u find good. May be international also 🙂
      Keep writing bhai 🙂

      • Michael

        yeah buddy.. i know i didnt put my heart in essay today.. next time .. keep reviewing… BTW i read yours..i was quite busy so didn’t comment .. but well written

    • Bhai sahab… Kaha se laate ho dhakkad stories… Preparation chodo screenplay likho… 😛

      On a serious note, the beginning was extra ordinary. You have given multiple dimensions within this short essay of yours. Just add ur funda in this. I know u will write a masterpiece of this.

      Review kar dena blog pe bhai! (I guess u know who I am 🙂

      Thank u!

      • Michael

        hahaha 🙂 will hit your blog tomorrow.. thanx for review.. i need some assistance regarding blog…. will contact you in your free time..

      • Michael

        i know who you are “ethical vermoth” … hahahahaha 😀

    • GODDAMN Batman!!

      Awww man!!!
      Started with a bang, but then fizzled out. :/
      Really sorry to say that..
      You have just about all the ingredients for a fireworks display. Perhaps if you had given some more time and heart, you’d have given competition to Gandalf in that game 😀 (I trust you know what I mean 😉 )
      One thing I’d like to point out is, I think it would be better to somehow shorten the story given at the start. It took up over 200 words, which is plenty even for an essay of 1200 words.
      The doha in the end is quite good. and useful here, no doubt.
      I understand everyday is not the same in performance, so I guess we’ll have the pleasure to see an awesome essay from you next week.. 🙂
      All da Best @bharatavril:disqus
      Keep writing..

    • Jaya Swatantra

      Hello ji,
      apne accha likha hai lekin bhaut kam likha hai…………. 🙂

  • Ankit

    Review Please 🙂

    He is considered India’s most successful captain overseas. One of the most stylish batsman to has ever played the game. He used to be an icon, an idol for a lot of young players. And one day it all came down to ashes! Mohammad Azharuddin popularly called “Azhar” was banned for lifetime because he was found guilty of match fixing! It took him a career to build trust but he couldn’t sustain it. All of it was eroded in a split second! Moral of his story?? “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”.

    So, why does it take years for trust to build? What is so special about this priced possession??

    We all love it when people trust us. When we are told that we are trustworthy. It gives us a feeling of pride, a feeling not less that being rewarded for our honesty and trustworthiness. It gives us a feeling of content and satisfaction when our beloved trust us and we expect the same in return. Trust has always been a priced possession not many afford to have because it takes years to build. You have to walk that extra mile to show that yes you can be counted on. And yet after all that effort it takes just a split second for it to be broken and this is what makes is so priced!

    So. since it is so priced and valuable it becomes all the more important for us to surround ourself with trustworthy people and to revert their trust in the same manner so as to build an unbreakable bond. For once the thread is broken it always has a knot! Try contemplating it with the “HINDI-CHINI BHAI BHAI” era. Nehru gave his heart and soul to build up a brotherly relation with our neighbor China. But China backstabbed him and with him the entire Indian psyche. Though in the following years India started having better economic relation with China but never could we trust them in the same manner. There is always an element of caution when dealing with China. For wounds heel up but the scar remains.

    The same goes for any business enterprise. It takes a lifetime to build faith in the customers and a small laxity in norms like in the case of “MAGGIE” can erode the trust in the customers in the wink of an eye. A product which was trusted as much as a mother’s hand made food lost a moral battle with the news of excessive lead in it. Will it gain back the trust as it used to have??

    The most difficult attribute associated with Trust is maintaining it. As the above examples show that maintaining Trust not just demands walking that extra mile but walking down the road with the same ideals and commitment which helped in gaining the trust of others. It takes perseverance and efforts in maintaining the same even when the situation is tough. People trusted Gandhi ji because he never deviated from his ideals. His vow of Satyagraha even in the most difficult times was what got the faith of others going in him. Else who other than the great soul could have stopped the riots in Noakhali?? It was the faith of others his his vision and his words. The nation never lost trust in him or his ideals even when he was gone. There was never a “second” when his credibility was doubted.

    Trust might take a lifetime to build but with it we build a personality, we build a life of inspiration for others, we show it to the world that trust is what leads to a better world. Imagine a society where you can’t trust even your closest friend. Sounds horrifying, doesn’t it? Who do we look up to when we are in trouble? Of course our family because we trust them blindly. We know they will never let us down. This in itself shows the importance of trust.

    We all want rather we all need people whom we can rely on because we are social beings and we have to rely on others to achieve big things in life. And the biggest thing in today’s scenario when trust has become a rare possession is building up a trustworthy society. For that we must dig deep into our cultural roots when villages used to be extended family. Where a girl felt secure walking down the street because the bond of trust ran deep. It is on us for reforming this society. For giving that girl her trust back!!

    • learner

      it was good..as you tried connecting with varied and good examples..

      • Ankit

        Thank you 🙂

    • gagan

      MAGGIE example was.applaudable. Different aspects related to economy can be added like financial meltdown ,stockmarket crash becoz of trust deficit people hesitant to invest and become bear investors.Relation with pak,not allowing indian jit to visit pak which again breaches the trust.

      • Ankit

        PAK i ignored because there is never a feeling of trust which can be broken. There is always a deficit. But yeah Bear point is nice. But I thought ek aspect touch kardiya economy ka so zyada na karu. But I’ll keep that in mind 🙂
        Thanks for the review 🙂

    • aashish 2000

      Good attempt…my friend… But I do contrast with your view of why is it taking time to trust…it’s not because of easy to break… It because of trust can be build by time like a grown up tree… The fruits for a tree can be possible by time only…
      I liked your connectivity and can include more perspective…Keep writing…

      • Ankit

        I think trust takes times to build because we are not ready to have faith in someone too early. Somewhere back of the mind we want to take our time because we fear to trust early. Maybe because of past experiences or maybe cuz of the world we live in. Yes I concur with your view as well. But wo connect waise hora tha isliye I connected it to maintain a flow.
        Thanks for the review 🙂

    • You write well .. But unfortunately you don’t think on the same lines … You have to ask yourselves do I rally feel that way… Will I trust a stranger and have the guts to give him my address.. Or am I too scared for my life…. Just ponder over it for a Moment , suppress your urge to reply…. And put you trust in GOD… He will save you….
      Add ____________________________
      Come on MAn believe in what your write …
      And TRUST ME … You write well..
      It’s just the trust deficit that is keeping you alive…..:D…
      TRUST is not such a prized possession after all!! Have some guts!! And faith in God! AMEN

      • Ankit

        I have faith in my GOD that he will give a purpose in life to people like u who are ust here to brag bullshit without any civility to talk to other 🙂
        Rest I appreciate you review and you’re the last person I’d want to tell me to do anything. Trusting a stranger?? Lolz you contradicted yourself by saying”trust” and “stranger” in one sentence. Nevamind I wish u had the capacity to comprehend what you said. And about trust deficit and giving ears to dogs who bark…I think I have my way of dealing with them!

        • BACHA rone LAGAA ab… WO BHI chupke APNE KAmre MEIN..
          Hattttttttt… Hushhhhhh… Hurrrrr..

    “Trust takes years to Build, Seconds to Break”

    The one vital brick among the foundation, to build the healthy, happy and long lasting relation is the “trust”. Whether among family, friends, co-workers and life- partner, individual needs that bond of being trustworthy, to carry forward that beautiful amalgamation, which nature allowed to be in. And being social animal, human needs this virtue for its survival and existence. Therefore it becomes imperative to humanity. Let’s see how this “trust” is treated in the laboratory of mankind? What are its ingredients and how much time it takes to make one credible and authoritative?

    The answer is, on first meeting one gets the influence of the character which one carries with his/her self. Now that behavioural aspect can be good or bad, if that instinct is good enough means one shows his solidarity toward his sayings; showing generosity toward yours thoughts too, then one can find this relation to being in perpetuity. And with time ripening they starts sharing their confidential secrets, ready to confess their deepest darkest sides, starts relying on one another when thing go on downhill, opening up to one another about their likes and dislikes. As nothing can be perfect in this world, such bonds not always depend upon only happiness, they too face fighting and abhorrence. But “trust” as an adhesive factor, saves such affiliations too. Otherwise relations on false/double note suppressed themselves within a very short time span and can’t stand themselves with time preparedness. Here we can see the power of “trust”, how it becomes survival at times of need. Then… why it takes seconds only to get ruptured? When it takes so long for maturing?

    As long as one sails bond with authenticity, no one can dare to fracture it. But once, betrayal, deception and treachery enters into the alliance; breaking promises are inevitable then hatred starts takes over and these jerks in between affairs punch it hard and dent it forever. Because opposite side of “trust” is so dark, antagonist and hegemonic in itself that it swallowed whole thread of love/care/credence in no time and left that liaison into pieces/pain/agony. Such losses specially ruined those who blindly believed and sacrificed their every dear able thing for their beloved sake. Thus make “trust” non repairable for life long.

    If collision of trust brings such destruction, then why people opt for trust only? Is there any other route too to being in touch without trust? The answer is NO, one can try, relationship without benevolence/righteousness s/he will definitely came up with empty hands, as long as human nature is socialistic, highly dependable upon rationalism and survived only upon principled values, the “trust” factor become inevitable/ unavoidable. It generates on its own, no one first clarify or signed memorandum of credibility to be in rapport. It is natural/ immortal thing which comes with progeny of humanity in mankind. Therefore despite being painful on collapse, it is still present, as it promises prosperity, peace, and plenteousness in conjunction during its active period.

    But if, being in a bond of trust becomes sometime painful, then what one should do? Yes sometime individual binds themselves too much in relationship that it starts sucking their liberty and freedom after sometimes. In such situation one can go for divorce, here let me clear first that, once again “trust” plays it invincible role, as because both can’t remain in connectivity, due to any xyz reason, but both appreciate/ moving the head in “yes” on division. It is nothing but just that “trust” which allows to both of them that they can live better / happily without each other; here trust suppressed that after hat-redness which would arrive if betrayal first hit their relation. Thus honesty/ trust allow existence/ breathiness too on sickness.

    On bit broader sense, just check its practicality. Here we can take example of India Pakistan relationship, India always takes “first step” toward friendship, so that a realistic, responsible and sensible relation can be formed in between. Example like Bus services and opening of gurudwaras and dargahs for Pakistani pilgrims etc all are example of our honest steps but terrorist attacks on innocent, encourage to illegal trade in drugs and narcotics and insurgency via porous boundaries always disband India’s heart and her efforts for maintaining tranquillity in the region. Here starvation of “trust” factor, destruct the exchange between two brothers from same soil. Thus leads to huge physical –mental –materialistic loss.

    Here one example from international community I want to share, when American government scold from several world communities for spying its ally Germany’s Chancellor Angela Marker for suspicious reasons, which hurts their beautiful relation of very long time, then Mr. President, of USA, came forward and apologize in wonderful words that>>The interests that we share as human beings are far more powerful than the forces that drive us apart. Then these words emerged as heal, to the wound, that hurting very painful, to the very own Germany of the America. So, from here one lesson one can derive that sometimes, “timely” realisation of wrong doings can save the million dollar bonds and helps to pursue the jolly friendship, for the further life span.

    At last I just want to hum the appropriate couplet to substantiate this proverb from the one among the Navratnas of Mughal emperor Akbar >> popularly known as Rahim, that>>……. Rahiman dhaga prem ka, mat todo chatkaye…
    …….. Tute to fir jude na, jude to gaant pad jaye!…….. In laymen terms
    “….Do not snapping the delicate thread of unquestioned trust/ faith /love, if that has been broken for once, it would not join, if it does join, there would be a discontinuity/bitterness/jerk forever!….” Thus human must respect/ honour/ care his relations which are mostly building upon “trust” factor to live a life of enjoyment/ exhilaration/ and elation without any break.

    • Eco-friendly

      Bhai I would once again- hats off to your vocabulary (this time it is much simpler and impressive). I become your fan.
      Wonderful start you have given and will fetch you good marks for that.
      Explained how trust builds up and its importance.
      Doha of rahim to end was wonderful…i liked it.

      Where you can improve-
      1) add mutiple dimensions
      2) go further like why breach of trust happens and what r the repercussions or harmful effects at various levels. then go for solutions.

      Mr. President ki jagah Obama ya just president likhna tha.

      Overall a nice read…..:)
      All the best

        yp diversion km hain……….. only batein ki han…….appriciate ur review brother…gbu……thank u:):)

    • Hi Shaktimaan (my favourite superhero since childhood 🙂 🙂 )
      When compared to your last essay, you’ve used lighter words 🙂 so well done 😛 😛
      A much much better interpretation of indo Pak relationship than what I wrote ?
      My suggestion.. Write smaller paragraps because at times it appears a bit boring 🙁 I hope you won’t mind.
      Loved the end 🙂 doha part was BEAUTIFUL! 🙂

    • Hello bhaijaan! Sorry abhi bakio k bhi review karne h, so late ho gya! Special case h aapka , so phle kar deta hu!
      nice arguments you have put in intro.Gives an idea what gonna come 😀

      2nd para-Class!!! I dont want to read further, kahi bura likha ho aage to? 🙁
      But if, being in a bond of trust becomes sometime painful, then what one should do? Yes sometime individual binds themselves too much in relationship that it starts sucking their liberty and freedom after sometimes!! I just wanna cry after reading this! #DepressModeOn 😛
      Too much emotions in this part!
      Pak wala part is good.
      What about giving japan-America relationship example including Hiroshima-Nagasaki connection! Think of it too 😉
      ye end me mjhe smjh ni aya theek se what it meant :/
      and again, dont use this CHAT language in between ur essay!! see in the end, you did it again! Next time i’m gonna kick you digitally 😛
      Overall it was a good write up! Flow was good. Bit of jerks were there in between but can be ignored. Critical part was dealt with. A little more diversification will solve all problems. me khud nhi kar paya vaise!! but still keep writing!
      See ya 🙂

      • Shaktimaan

    • Akhil

      Bhai thanks for using simple words this time.
      Intro is good.. Philosophical one..
      Good connection between paras and nice flow.
      Pakistan india wala point I think not very suitable.. In do countries me kabhi trust tha hi nahi.. To tutne k sawal hi nahi aata. Sino India could have been better.
      -more dimensions could have been included.. Like national, corporate, personal and trust in self.
      -bhai conclusion really awesome..

      Overall good essay brother.. Keep writing
      Thank you

    • Hi Shakti bhai, my views-
      – in para on “why it takes time to mature”; you have also added importance of trust which you dealt again in other para
      – rather than “collision” of trust, use “breach” of trust
      – some statements too long and defeat the meaning of your expression- “The answer is NO, one can try, relationship without benevolence/righteousness s/he will definitely came up with empty hands, as long as human nature is socialistic, highly dependable upon rationalism and survived only upon principled values, the “trust” factor become inevitable/ unavoidable”
      – avoid writing “xyz” reason 😛
      – para on divorce as an expression of trust is well thought
      – do not mix honesty and trust and meaning is unclear- “Thus honesty/ trust allow existence/ breathiness too on sickness”
      – use inverted commas instead of >>; “Germany of the America” :O
      – you have used too many obliques “/”
      – few grammar errors but imporvement is there

      Rest is OK, some work on structure and keeping the examples and philo together would make your essay better 🙂

    Kindly review!!

    “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break”

    “You were my pride. I had trusted you the most that no matter what the odds are, you can never let me down. Based on this level of trust, I sent you to Delhi to fulfill your dream of becoming an engineer but today everything is shattered”, said Simran’s father to her. Simran’s father, who was a farmer at village had struggled hard, bearing the expenses of her studies while at the same time, fighting the conservative value systems of his village, when he sent Simran to an engineering college in Delhi. His relatives and friends had warned him that Simran would become spoiled but he had confidently replied to them, “I have complete trust on my daughter. She will always walk on the right path and eventually also become a successful engineer. You shall see.” Little did he know then that one day his pride on her daughter would be shattered seeing her in a pub, partying wildly with her friends, which was obviously in a contradiction to his values.

    The trust between Simran and her father, which had evolved gradually since her childhood, suddenly appeared fraudulent to Simran’s father. Those few seconds of seeing her daughter in such a condition had shaken his ‘for a lifetime’ trust. This is why it is truly said, “It takes lifetime to build trust, but just few seconds to break it.”

    Trust is the foundation of any relationship, personal or professional. No relationship can nurture in the absence of trust from both sides. A husband and wife cannot walk a mile together in the ‘pure’ institution of marriage if they do not trust each other. For instance, if they are suspicious of each other’s fidelity or if there arises a need for them to hide something from each other, it simply means they have failed the trust required in a marriage.

    Similarly, a child develops trust in his mother and father since childhood and this trust in turn, develops a sense of confidence in him that his parents would always be there to protect him and to support him. This confidence gives him the courage to face the outside world as well as to do well in life. For instance, a toddler when tossed up in air laughs because he is not scared of falling as he is sure that his parents would never let him hurt himself.

    Likewise, the trust of the parents in their children helps them to shine like a star in whatever work they do. For instance, if a child fails to clear a competitive examination, it is only the parents’ trustworthy words, that “We are there for you” and that “We trust you and you will definitely make it next time”, which will give the child courage to tighten his shoes and start all over again.

    Two friends claim that they are “best friends forever” based on the trust in their relationship. Be it covering up for each other in front of parents or giving advice for each other’s betterment in life or sharing everything with each other, all these things exemplify that trust is the unique factor that keeps their bond united. But after years of friendship if one fine day, one friend overhears his friend maligning him in front of some other person, his trust on his friend would surely take a backseat.

    For instance, India used to consider China as his closest friend before 1962. But the sudden attack by China on India, capturing the Aksaichin area alongwith some areas of Arunachal Pradesh, shattered India’s trust so badly that till today it can be seen that India always has one suspicious eye on every move of China like China’s increasing closeness with Nepal or Sri Lanka.

    Such is the impact of breaking one’s trust. Those “few seconds” which cause the long-lasting trust between two sides to suffer a blow ultimately result in lifetime of suspiciousness not only towards that person who broke the trust but also towards other people. The person whose trust has been shattered after years of commitment is usually never able to trust anyone else so easily. Professionally, if an employer has developed a healthy relationship with all his employees his entire life, but one day comes to know that one of his employees has been misusing the organisation’s funds for some personal gain or has submitted a false report, the employer’s trust would be broken and he would not be able to trust any of his employees or delegate huge responsibilities to them like earlier.

    More than trusting others it is important for a person to trust himself. Without having belief in himself, he would lack self-confidence and would never be able to perform well in life. It may happen that after years of being a topper at school, a person fails the competitive examinations badly. This may break his trust on himself and he may feel that his worth is negligible. This is the time when he should try and regain his trust on himself as it is rightly said, “Trust yourself, you know more than you think you do.”

    Some people also find confidence by trusting in the Almighty, believing that they need not fear because God is with them. This kind of spiritual trust helps the person to stay on the right path even under testing circumstances because he tends to believe that as long as he is right, his trust on God would never fail him. For instance, a devotee of God, who also practices philanthropy, is blessed with all that he could wish for, and hence has deep faith in God. But suddenly, one day his daughter, his most treasured gift of life, dies in an accident. This person would never be able to rebuild his trust on God again and may become a complete atheist.

    Shattering of such spiritual trust is beyond our control as human beings but at least we all can try to uphold the trust which fellow human beings, be it our families, friends, our employers or employees, the clientele which we serve, have on us and never ever become a cause for shattering that trust. One may not realize this but it is true that above all “To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.”

    • Eco-friendly

      You have written it beautifully. explained trust well with various aspects.
      Conclusion is good too
      Improvement needed-
      1) In story part some kind of negativity is there like- It is not a bad thing to dance in pub or so as we are living in 21st century and society is getting liberal. You can modify it and attack on social evils. Ignore it if found irrelevant
      2) cover other aspects like why trust is breached, harmful effects, repurcussions and how to maintain trust.

      Overall a nice read…..
      Do review mine if u find time….:)
      All the best

      • Namrata

        thankuu eco friendly for ur review and well-valued suggestions .. regarding the story the point i wished to highlight was ..there is nothing wrong as per liberal view ..but to the father it was .. thats y i mentioned as per his “values” and the daughter too knew about it .. meaning of trust between the father and daughter got breached ..had she told her father about the pub thing ..and he was okay with that ..then trust thing was irrrelevant .. this is the point i wished to convey .. but shayad hua nahi convey .. so yeah will keep in mind ur suggestion .. thanks again 🙂

        yeah will review urs too in sometime 🙂

        • Eco-friendly

          wo point convey ho gya but you can add-

          sometimes there is difference in understanding of the word trust or trust is based on fault lines/ideas/values(this point come to mind now). like we have false pride in honour killing, or when we “blindly trust” some baba/maulvi/other religious guru(PK movie) then also problem arises. And then can give solutions like- to be liberal, rational, not to trust blindly, understand the generation gap, etc.

          May be I am deviated from main theme…..

          Thanks…..:)

    • Ganga kinare wala

      The start is slightly dangerous as it portrays gender stereotyping of women which might backfire. the daughter has every right to decide her course of life as an adult. The examples are really nice but there is a lack of flow in some parts. specially trusting yourself para seems to be out of place. The “SECONDS TO BREAK ” part is nicely done. The conclusion could have been better

      • Namrata

        well the intention was not such but i agree now that i read i see my intro has become controversial inspite of me trying not to convey this .. and i could have used a boy’s name to avoid that stereotyping ..trust would still have been breached .. anyway thanks a lot for ur review and all the suggestions 🙂 keep writing and reviewing 😀

    • CSE2016 aspirant

      Upvote for using good language 🙂
      Introduction example – partying hard at pubs – You should add performing poorly in acads and partying hard – as everyone has right to enjoy, but not at the cost of the primary business/ job for which their parents have send them. So make it a complete one. Just emphasising on traditional values may not figure out well in some case :).
      I think you are giving exmples of competition again and again – please avoid it
      I found only 3-4 examples / viewpoints in your essay. You need to include more points
      Overall a good essay – but a lot need to be done to improve it.
      ( Was Character Simran inspired by DDLJ – Jaa Simran , jee le apni Zindagi ? )

      • Namrata

        thanks for review .. i totally agree with u on intro part ..focussing only on family values is becoming controversial here 😛
        agreed regarding examples too ..will keep in mind ur points in future ..keep reviewing and enlightening virat 😀

        haha no it was not intended to be but yeah the situation draws similarity .. 😉

    • Hi Namrata,
      Good flow 🙂 hence a good read 🙂
      Start could have been modified.
      You covered many dimensions but a few more are left 🙂
      Trust in a democratic set up, trust at the organization level.
      What happens when trust gets build up and what happens when it gets broken down.
      People have used only Indo China example. There’s no harm 🙂 while I read yours 🙂 I realised we can use USA and INDIA a well 🙂 🙂
      Nice over all.
      Please find time to read mine 🙂 thanks pal 🙂 🙂

      3.Also besides trust in personal relationships other dimensions could explored…
      Great overall.

      hi namrata

      its a good essay overall
      conclusion could be better. but the last line is a bomb. it just made good last impression.
      trust can be used between government and citizen, doctor patient and other patients as well
      but anyways there are lots of examples that shows diversity
      language is very good and smooth flow

      its a nice read.
      u did not posted this on your blog ?
      please review mine as well. it will take hardly take few minutes.

      thanks and keep writing
      cheers

      • Namrata

        hello g 😛 thanku for ur encouraging review 🙂 will work on the conclusion for sure .. 🙂
        no i dont write blogs yet 🙂
        yeah sure will review ..keep writing and reviewing ..cheers 🙂

    • Hello Namrata, my views-
      – story was long but well put esp why trust takes time to build and seconds to break
      – can avoid using “for instance” and incorporating examples like normal statements
      – break in flow as you transited to “two friends claim”
      – structure was a bit awkward. I feel first trusting yourself you should come, then relationship and then professional
      – more emphasis on breach of trust has been placed but why it takes year to build trust has not been due place
      – conclusion looks more of a continuation of penultimate para

      Overall, the essay looked below your potential. Need to explore more dimensions-corporate, citizen-government relationships, international relations, strangers like doctors. Similarly, emphasis on why it takes years to build and seconds to break can be detailed.

    “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”

    Entering college from school, where there is comparatively less restrictions than school was nothing less than a day of festival for me and my friends. For the first time in our life we got the freedom to explore the length and breadth of our city due to the two wheelers given to us by our parents.

    But soon we got the rewards for being careless about our studies in our first annual exams, it was the first time in my life that I failed in any subject. It came as a shock to me and had an effect of near about nuclear bomb on my family. There was grief in every corner of my home, friends and family started gathering in my house to offer condolences. It’s been six years since that day. In spite of being an above average academic student till 12th standard, that incident shook my trust on my ability and the last six years has been a struggle to regain that trust. Nevertheless the incident thought me the importance of focus in life. Trust is not only important in social life, but also in International, Political, Economic, Cultural and Ecological sphere.

    Maintaining trust is very important in International sphere where Countries work in their self interest. After the 1999 kargil war there was tremendous public opinion in favour of peace, which resulted in 2003 cease fire when Musharraf called for a ceasefire along the LoC during a UN General Assembly meeting, this was accompanied by composite dialogue process. But this environment of trust was lost due to the 2007 Samjhauta express blast and 2008 Mumbai attacks. Since then many attempts to build confidence has failed, the latest being the Ufa summit and calling off talks at the foreign secretary level.

    Prominent leaders of India’s freedom movement had friendly relations with the United States of America which continued well after independence. Even when India became the founding member of Non Alignment movement in 1961, there was no anti-american public opinion in India. But the 1971 Indo-Pakistani War, where US openly supported Pakistan and even deployed its aircraft carrier USS Enterprise towards the Bay of Bengal, has ensured that generations of Indians remain skeptical towards America. Even after the first ever event when a US president visited India on Republic Day celebration, there is still an underlying distrust towards American in public minds.

    The British rulers in India through re-writing of history painted the eight hundred Muslim reign in the country with misrule wherein showcasing their Kings and Nawabs being intolerant, prejudiced and bigoted towards their Hindu subjects to create mistrust and deep rooted hatred between Hindus and Muslims against each other. This was done to strengthen the reins of power in the backdrop of 1857 uprising. Thus, the British rulers adopted divide and rule policy to sow the seeds of communalism in India by getting the history distorted and suppressed the facts of glorious communal harmony traditions practiced by many Muslim rulers. This artificially created distrust has not only resulted in 1947 holocaust following partition, but is still pinching us in the form of riots, Beef ban, Love Jihad and Ghar wapsi.

    Years of misgovernance and corruption in public life has resulted in trust deficit in India’s political sphere. People do not trust the executive, with the result being higher caste Jats and Marathas are on streets for reservation, lower caste or Dalits are on streets demanding reservation in private sector, farming class are on streets demanding strengthening of consensus clause in “land rehabilitation and resettlement act” and relief in drought hit areas. Eg-Marathwada. It seems like a distant dream when different classes of our country will once again repose faith in the government and choose constitutional methods.

    The examples such as Narmada Bachao Andolan has created distrust among the people on government’s sincerity towards environment and people, thereby affecting conservation efforts in the country. The permission of the villagers who were to be affected by Narmada dam were not taken. A panel of four retired judges called the ‘Independent People’s Tribunal on Sardar Sarovar Project, has concluded that the Narmada Water Disputes Tribunal Award on Rehablitation was not fully honoured. Such past has affected the conservation efforts like Western Ecological area as recommended by Madhav Gadgil report and later by Kasturirangan panel.

    Trust in the economic sphere is represented through business confidence. In 2007 walmart announced winding up of its Indian arm, the group has been frustrated by the government’s new conditions for foreign direct investment (FDI), an internal bribery probe and the faltering relationship with Bharti, owner of India’s top mobile phone firm. Then the world was suffering from subprime crisis and India was suffering from scams like 2G scam, but today India is one of the bright spots in world economy but still there is no news of worldmart coming to India, this shows it’s very hard to regain business confidence. Even in current times, the IPL row in which the Bombay High court ruled to shift all the IPL matches out of Maharashtra has jolted the business climate in Maharashtra. Needless to say the efforts to instill confidence to “Make in Maharashtra” has gone down the drain. The state government would have known that a significant part of the state is hit by drought and should have anticipated the extravagant water requirement to field cricket matches. Hence shouldn’t have given cricket match permission in the first place.

    Thus after looking at varied dimensions like social, economic, political, economic, cultural and ecological dimensions, we could so without a doubt “Trust take years to buld but Seconds to Break”. This reminds me of the words which my mother told when I failed in college exam, “it’s difficult to gain trust but easy to lose, so don’t allow it to lose”.

    • Ganga kinare wala

      The start is brilliant with a unique perspective to trust. The way the idea of trust has been explained from various dimensions is also impressive. However i think the international one has been over done. The second part of “SECONDS TO BREAK ” has been completely missed and the conclusion too could have been more impressive. The historical example was outstanding. Kindly review mine 🙂 thanks

    • Iconoclast

      Hi Sonia,

      1. I like the way you could come up story for every essay.
      2. Today, I found philosophical part was bit lacking, and example you have given are numerous.
      3. Conclusion was short and could be improved.
      4. Some spelling mistakes, “thought” would be taught.

      Please review mine, when you get time

    • Dear Soniaji,
      I think aapko mera review acha nhi lagega.
      But still,
      After reading ur essay till the very end, i thought ki aapne badda diversify kia hai sab! so well done on that. BUT you’ve not touched philosophical part se zyada?
      You took different aspects International, Political, Economic but that was too much. It was like a GS type essay and very hectic too. Sorry, dont take me wrong 🙂
      And best review insights wale hi de skte!
      But your essay was good if i take the way u classifies them! Thankyou Soniaji 🙂

    • Anubhav Pandey Kautilya

      sorry sonia…but this was not upto the mark as per me….
      the start itself was not fine…as failing in subject leading to so much of distrust in urself…..one could not connect with it…it felt bit of exaggeration…
      they in rest of the paras as well…things were falling apart…i could not see coherence…flow…anything….
      sorry but for me it was a poor attempt….
      knowing ur potential…u can hit it out of the park with comfort…
      so good luck…

      • Sonia mehra

        Dear walking in storm,
        Duly noted your observations.

        My earlier essays were story based essays, the essays started and ended with the storyline. This essay was more like a traditional essay, where the effort was to cover varied dimensions. The problem here was since varied dimensions are covered in each para, it was possible to main intra para continuity or flow, but it was difficult to maintain inter-para continuity. eg- para number A will be on politics and para number B will be on economics.

        Thank you for your trust in me and an honest review..

    • HappyIAS

      This is the best essay that I’ve read so far.
      Multi-dimensional, full of good examples.

      Thanks for writing such a brilliant piece, friend.
      Keep writing and reviewing. Please review mine if time permits. 🙂

    • Shri07

      Very well framed essay but i think it will be difficult for layman to understand if he has no basic knowledge about the facts .I think it would be additional advantage if you add some philosophical or other view points too .
      This is what i felt . Sorry if my review isn’t good .

      • Sonia mehra

        Dear Shri,

        Glad to know you like the essay.
        I certainly overlooked the philosophical part. Would try to write a more balanced essay.

        Thanks friend..

    TRUST TAKE YEARS TO BUILD, SECONDS TO BREAK

    RAHIMAN DHAGA PREM KA MAT TODO CHITKAY TODE SE PHIR NA JUDE JUDE GANTH PAD JAYE”- Rahim Doha

    This famous doha by court poet Rahim of the emperor Akbar the great beautifully encapsulates the delicate nature of human trust, faith and love. It says that the thread of love and trust once broken cannot be repaired and even if it is repaired there will be knots in it meaning thereby that men should be extra cautious in dealing with matters of trust, love and faith and any betrayal will rupture the delicate human relationship. Similarly trust as a part of human psyche and emotion takes time to build specially when we grow up as adults and once it’s broken it is never the same again generally.

    TRUST TAKE YEARS TO BUILD

    The building of trust takes time because as we grow older we mature in life and are circumspect about the behaviour of others. A child however easily trusts anybody and is vulnerable, naive and gullible as his mental faculties of judging people haven’t developed. A child is considered innocent and even at times is considered to be a form of God as he loves without difference and doesn’t judge anybody. He readily believes anybody and anything. But as he grows he encounters real life experiences where the world is really a difficult place with a mad rush to move ahead at the cost of others. Slowly he understands that one can’t believe anybody and takes a lot of time before he trusts people. There is a saying “love all, trust few, trust only those who love you”. Trust on others only develops when we get to know the person enough and this can only happen with a passage of time. Once we have observed a person closely for a considerable period of time without any deviant behaviour from him is when they become trustworthy. Generally all out closest friends are the ones who we have known for a very long period of time and understand them deep inside. They have been with us in thick and thin. This is part of human nature and psychology to take time to allow somebody to become close to us and in our secret world. Human emotions are after all no chemical elements like Na+Cl that will result in the product spontaneously. However, in some situations trust might not takes so much of time to develop and grow and will be build right away due to the demands of the situation or the nature of the setup and organization. For example, in arrange marriages trust between partners flows from the holy and pious matrimonial bond. If a young officer is posted in a far off regiment or squadron, he trusts his fellow officers and men from the day 1. The same happens in the field of sport as well.

    SECONDS TO BREAK

    Since the expectations, emotions and faith is attached on a particular bond so much that a person is not able to digest the setback emotionally. The feeling of never being able to trust anybody envelopes his mind and heart. The person feels cheated and dejected as after having a particular bond so much time, emotions and energy he has been betrayed. The general tendency is to react which a person does by ending the relation once for all. This also smears of slight vindictiveness, a feeling of tit for tat. In a lot of situations that is the only possible solution left, however many a times a person is truly apologetic about his behaviour still people refuse to budge and annihilate the bond forever. This approach to life in large level is extremely reactionary and lacks maturity in depth of thought. To some extent this way of thought also draws from the current culture in movies and elsewhere of celebrating the idea of revenge. The thought that I don’t forget either my friends or enemies is a very popular notion nowadays. This approach works at all level from a very personal level to international diplomacy and public relations. The Sino China debacle, American-Iranian problem till very recently are various manifestations of trust having gone down the spiral after a setback. As human emotions take time to ripe and trust hence graduates slowly to the level of trust, thus I believe that even the reaction to the adverse situation should be more humane in nature if the person is genuinely apologetic and guilty about his mistake and wants a second change. It should ideally not take seconds to rip apart something which has been built and cultivated over a period of time unless obviously its inevitable. When we break ties in a matter of seconds something of the bond still stays with us and we carry it along with us. To forgive is the virtue of the brave Gandhiji said and it should be motto which should inspire human relations at large.

    THE CURE

    The pragmatic way to deal with this complex human emotion of trust and betrayal is to give the other person a chance if he is truly apologetic about his behaviour and regrets. In this way the person who forgives increases his stature in the eye of the person and he might feel twice as attached to the person who forgave him. A lot of complex human problems and issue along with international feuds can be overcome by following the Gandhian doctrine of forgiving. One can’t let the past control his future forever. America and Iran having being allies till 1979 Islamic revolution of Iran, have now again become closer burying their past hatchet after the recent nuclear deal. India China too were close friends till the war debacle in 1962. A famous slogan in the national media used to be ‘HINDI CHINI BHAI BHAI’. Now even India China have moved forward and have started collaborating in various international forums though still some fissures exist. Even in our very own Bollywood the two superstars Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan have buried their differences and are now friends. Trust takes years to build but it ideally shouldn’t broken in a matter of seconds !

      • CSE2016 aspirant

        Bro – I am really impressed with your content. You write your heart out. Examples are short and good
        Just one suggestion – use short paras, not long ones. Ideally a para should not be shorter than 4-5 lines and not bigger than 10-12 lines 🙂
        Conclusion could have been improved – You should have added summary of entire essay in 4-5 lines and then have put forward your final views in 1-2 lines.
        That would have made your essay perfect 🙂
        Avoid Salman Khan and Sharukh khan line

        terribly bad with technology, can you tell me how to reach your essay, will review it asap 🙂

        • briganzza

          ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

          Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

          Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

          But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

          Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

          Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

          Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

          We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

          plz review friend

          • Ganga kinare wala

            Hope you will take the review in a positive way. There is definitely a very smooth flow of thought but things end just there. India Pakistan is arguably one of the most unlikely examples you would want to take at the start. Secondly, the essay doesn’t address trust from a micro human perspective. The second para sounds more appropriate in a foreign policy argument. GANDHI Africa and Nehru are completely out of context. The second part of the topic “SECONDS TO BREAK” is completely absent. I presume you didn’t understand the question in the right spirit. Good luck 🙂

            • briganzza

              thnx for the informative review

    • Sonia mehra

      Dear Ganga,
      1. Rahim doha is very catchy. Kudos!!. But translation of Prem would be love. It’s difficult to imagine Prem as trust. Trust can’t be necessarily associated with love. Love relationship need trust, friendship also need trust etc..
      2. Lacks dimension= I felt the essay to be very tilted towards human emotions..
      3. Old people don’t trust easily= Negativity emanates from such lines, you could reframe the sentence in a neutral way.
      4. in arrange marriages trust between partners flows from the holy and pious matrimonial bond= here you are assuming that infidelty never happens between those who enter religious matrimonial alliance. It’s a far fetched statement, with no scientific basis. Plz have a re look
      5. Cure part is very good, especially gandhiji and america. Salman and shahrukh could be avoided, most of the times there fight is manufactured just before any major film release. And moreover it is not something which affect the masses or world at large.

      Have a nice day.

      • Ganga kinare wala

        Thanks Sonia, i agree on the dimension part could have improved there with broader classification like used. Rahim doha need not be taken literally :), I will improve further 🙂

      • CSE2016 aspirant

        I think here Prem can mean variety of things like love, trust and faith. And waise bhi Trust ke bina bhi kya love hota hai kisi main. So, I think Ganga kinare waala chora is right here.

        Agreed with 3rd, 4th and 5th point :).
        Regarding 2nd point – may be yes you are right – he must have incorporated some social, diplomatic and economic perspective too 🙂

        Keep reviewing Sonia

    • Namrata

      hi ganga .. starting was very great indeed .. unique and different .. explaining what u wanted to convey was good too .. first part of the essay was apt .. but second part focussed more on forgiving and remedy .. simply focussion on this for half the essay took the essence from the essay .. showed little deviation from the theme .. plus forgiving pe stress showed u urself contradicting urself w.r.t the doha in the beginning .. another suggestion: try not to write ur essay in sub-headings ..quite hampers the flow .. overall- a good read but improvements needed .. keep writing and reviewing 🙂

      • Ganga kinare wala

        Thanks Namrata, will remove the sub heads fro, the next time. I went into the forgiving part as a solution to “SECONDS TO BREAK”, and the doha holds true but this is a cure to doha’s philosophy but I could have made it short. 🙂

    • Iconoclast

      Loved the simplicity of your essay. I have also used the thread analogy in my essay, but not the couplet. Also I felt more dimensions could be added other than personal relationships. Please review mine when you get time

    • black mamba

      1) good that u included forgiveness in your essay.
      2) I’m not too sure of bollywood example u used. whether such stars’ name can be used or not, gives a good impression to the examiner or not. i dunno, so i can’t really say.
      3) i felt that your explanations of trust and and breaking it can have more dimensions. the current explanation’s more like a loop.

      that’s all i could think go 🙂
      keep writing and reviewing 😀

      • Ganga kinare wala

        Han bhai i agree bollywood is not the best thing to cite and ya i could have added more dimensions to the second part.
        thanks man for an honest review. 🙂 !

  • Aseem

    Please review friends… Writing after quite a time

    • Bhai, sorry but my net is very slow and these pics are not viewable. Not opening in new tab.
      I’ll try to review urs in evening when connection picks some speed. I hope u understand my problem 🙁
      Sorry bro, but i’ll try!

    Plz Review …

    Simba, is a lion who has escaped a zoo and entered a forest. Tired of running for miles, to quench his thirst Simba goes to a lake. He sees another lion chasing a deer (Cassie). Simba stares at Cassie for some time for some reason and immediately runs to rescue her. The lion after a short fight lets Simba have Cassie however Cassie had already escaped.

    Next day, Simba was waiting for Cassie by the lake. Having spotted her drinking water, he stood right behind her. Cassie saw Simba’s reflection in water and ran away. This continued for few months- whenever Cassie was in trouble Simba came to her rescue and she ran away. Eventually one day Cassie mustered courage and approached Simba. She asked him why was he protecting her. Simba replied in his early years he had a friend (a deer) named Ki-Ki and Cassie strikingly resembled Ki-Ki hence, he was protecting her. Cassie however, did not trust Simba immediately but gave him a chance to prove his friendship and eventually with time they became very good friends.

    Such odd instances of predator-prey union do occur and this happens because animals in their earlier days are more receptive towards interspecies bonding. Cassie was unknown to such behaviour and her reaction (running away) was quite justified against the ‘trust’ the ‘prey has built in the predator over the years’. They know the predator would kill them and hence escape. Though in this situation breaking of trust came up as a pleasant surprise in most of the cases it is the opposite.

    Having introduced trust, let’s discuss what trust is. We humans by nature are sceptics which is pretty justified because these days cheating-swindling is the new trend. But treating everyone on the same footing is incorrect. So how we do distinguish between people? We distinguish between people by testing them- not once- not twice – but time and again. If a person clears ‘all’ these tests we develop a ‘firm belief’ that this person would never betray us. This ‘firm belief’ is trust. Trust is not a superficial relation. Trust involves penetration at deeper levels. And what is this deeper level? This deeper level is when we are ready to turn our Brain to ‘OFF’ mode and our hearts to ‘ON’ mode, in short, when we stop thinking and connect with the other person via our hearts. Also, this connection can’t be done one-sidedly. Essentially trust is a ‘two-way traffic’. Ex- A trustworthy employee if needs a leave can get it easily. Why? Because his employer develops a feeling of ‘empathy and compassion’ towards him. Besides, the employer also knows that tomorrow when the Organization would need this employee, he would be right there in thick and thin.

    Another aspect of building trust and two way traffic is the power we bestow upon someone. The power to hurt us! After several tests we give such a power to a person. Wondering how did we make this person so powerful? We made him powerful by ‘expecting’ things of him. Expectations are very close to our hearts in fact the heart is where it originates. For the mind would always evaluate the pros and cons and be prepared while the heart, stands all armless and vulnerable. It is when these expectations get shattered, our hearts shatter along and the entire basis of the relationship gets shook. Let’s examine this with an example.

    When people marry they take an implicit vow to trust each other and do nothing that breaks this trust. In fact it is often said – ‘A fine marriage is like fine wine, it only gets better with time. So what is it that makes a fine marriage better with time? It is the ‘understanding’ the two people develop towards each other- the understanding towards each other’s ‘expectations’. And when people meet or try to meet these expectations- ‘every time’- this bond of trust keeps getting stronger. However, it can’t be denied when a person gets ‘sceptical’ about his/her partner and starts snooping around that person’s back- in a way s/he is breaking the other person’s trust. Many marriages fail because of this trust deficit.

    Such deficits if are based on mere untrue suspicion and lead to breakage of marriage makes the snooper guilty and he gets a lesson to learn. He would not repeat such an act in the future but if trust is broken due to infidelity, the person’s world comes toppling down. He not only stops trusting others but his own ability to trust. He starts hating himself for turning his mind to the ‘OFF mode’. Trust is like gravity which holds all relations together and to trust someone we first trust our own rationale. The breaking of trust off one’s own rationale is the biggest loss of a person.

    Reason is- while trust gives mental peace because we stop using our minds based on our past experiences with the person (we believe the person will remain the same- loyal and harmless) scepticism makes us paranoiac. The paranoia developed between the two Cold War superpowers best exemplifies this. Our decisions do not remain ours and become dependent on others. Deciding for ourselves-monitoring others-and then deciding keeping them in mind is too much work for the brain destroying its tranquillity.

    Having discussed of trust deficits between 2 superpowers, let’s focus on India. India’s 1974 nuclear test jolted the entire world because everyone held the ’firm belief’ that India wants nothing other than peace. This trust which we broke in few months after building it for years has led to India being denied entry into sophisticated Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and other such organizations which India really needs, to achieve nuclear technological advancement. India’s this loss can be credited to ‘disenchantment’ of other nations. Though steps taken by India after these tests, like support for no first use of nuclear technology, no use of such technology on non-nuclear nations were India’s baby steps towards trust building which have actually resulted in India being supported by the developed nations for NSG membership but the fact remains not ‘all’ members trust India. India here needs to make sure no further disenchantment takes place. Disenchantment is very powerful- it drove the British out of India, has possibility of firing an employee with an impeccable past record to be fired because of one dubious engagement.

    As we celebrate Dr. Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary, I’m reminded of ‘few’ reports calling him an anti-national. Grounds- He supported British rule in India. Here again we are failing to understand why he did so. Dr. Ambedkar trusted himself- he felt he with his initiatives and aspirations would change– the Caste system, the atrocities faced by the weaker sections. It was this trust which broke when he saw orthodox elements protest. Major jolt was the discarding of Hindu Code Bill. The ‘trust of reforming the society’ he build over years got disenchanted at this particular moment when despite support from few known and well respected people the majority defeated the Bill. This shattered his trust to an extent he took up Buddhism and asked the depressed to do the same.

    The pain this shattering trust inflicts on anyone can’t be described in words. At the same time the foremost virtue to build any relation remains this ‘Trust’ so there is no doing without it either. What we must understand is – ‘Trust is earned, respect is given and loyalty is demonstrated. Betrayal of anyone of those is to lose all three’.

    We must not view the world via our own prisms and expect everyone to be trustworthy. We need to ‘BE’ trustworthy to have trustworthy people around us.

    Personally I believe if we have to destroy a person- destroy his/her trust. But as we do this, we should always remember ‘What goes around comes way back around!’

    Hence, we should not take relations for granted and deliver on every commitment we make. ‘Communicate’ what we feel because trust and communication are the key to a healthy relationship. If I called trust a two way traffic relations too are the same and maintenance needs efforts on both ends.

    • Hello NAMami GANge 😛 (decode initial part only)
      Thankyou for FORGIVING me! 😡 :/ ROFL
      1)Your story is very intersting. But 3 paras. But is se short me b you cant justify it, so will let u go on this part 🙂
      2) Very good analysis of trust part.
      3) on mode/off mode- didnt like this much . Found it very casual type.
      4) wine and marriage- a good one Ash.
      5)Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) part- do u need to go so much in this? i mean u have all the examples in the world to expalin and justify ur essaya and u pick up this example. Personally, didnt like it. You could have written some other better example than this. you may differ 🙂
      6) I do not believe in karma theory much, partially only. What goes around comes around, but it was good to mention it.
      your essay was quite diverse. I can point out some puny mistakes but that would just be a case ki mjhe just mistkes nikalni h! You’ve written well.
      What i believe is ki thoda aur philosophy de skte the. but meri side se no harsh analysis this time.
      Sorry Ash 😀 🙂

      • Ash

        Hey Tuk-tuk! 😛
        Forgiving! Ufff! 😛
        1. I can’t cut it down. aptly noted! 🙂
        2. Tq! 🙂
        3. Would like to differ here! 🙂
        4. I was wondering y no one mentioned this.. this was an awesome quote I remembered coz it appealed to me!
        5. I will think about this one.. may be some striking ex can be thot of!
        6. I’m avoiding philosophy… my last essay went very philosophical.. you didn’t read it so you won’t know…. what I was suggested by the OfficialReviewer was it is risky to write philosophical essays.. what if the reader is some Phd. in Philosophy .. and our philosophy does not appeal to them! 🙂

        No sorries Tuk-tuk/…. Tq soo much for reviewing! 🙂

    • Narendra

      Hi !
      Nice attempt Ma’m :), Introduction can be better, may be give some real life example.

      1. Define trust, what strengthen trust,
      2. Include examples like Trial of revolutionaries and breach of trust, Battle of Plassey – Nawab – breach of trust by Military commandar,
      3. Can include trust on Economy – the way ratings of country are defined, BOP – outflow of money,
      4. INternation relations – USSR – best friend of India, and how India neglected…due to change in geo-political equations,
      5. What breached the trust – fear, Money, information gap.
      6. Trust in Public life – politicians, promises.
      7. In between , you can include difference b/w faith and trust.
      8. Can also include Ethical angle,

      others points like personal relationship and philosophical angle you have already included

      do let me know if these point makes sense in the essay or any points which can be added.

      keep writing.

      • Ash

        Hi Narendra.. 🙂
        Ash would do! 🙂

        1. Strengthening trust – noted! 🙂
        2. Good point… itz just word limit does not allow me to add these.. but these can be added .. Historic perspective type!:)
        3. Economic ex – I wrote one which I couldn’t add here due to word constraint…. Our trust on the Central Bank which is y we keep the money in banks.. that keeps the economy running!
        4. I’m afraid.. I would not want India being spotted in negative l8!
        5-6. Ran out of words.. but yeah… good points!
        7. This is awesome!
        8. Agree! I need to rationalize my words! 🙂
        Thanks for such an amazing review Narendra!
        KwaR! 🙂

    • HappyIAS

      Brilliant start – loved the cartoon story! 😛

      “ON mode”, two-way traffic : catchy!

      But then the essay lost its connectivity.

      India’s NSG example ain’t good. We had to become a nuclear power to gain power at international level. US is a hypocrite that wants others to destroy nuclear weapons but itself is not ready to forgo them.

      Also, you have discussed philosophical angle more. Please add more dimensions to your essay.

      Still, a good write up. Keep writing and reviewing, friend! 🙂

      • Ash

        Thnk you HappyIAS! 🙂

        Oh-kay .. I will just chk on the connectivity part! 🙂
        word limit forced me to restrict my thoughts.. I had more in my notebook but yeah… would try putting the same here from the next time .. Thank you so much for reviewing! :))

    • black mamba

      Hey Ms Ash. long time no see 😀
      hope your prep is kickass.
      So, loved the beginning, and initial body of your essay.
      Then it got a little dull till India’s example showed up.
      Then again it lost the punch.
      Conclusion could have been better in my opinion. though it is not bad at all.

      so u see – a rollercoaster of an essay.
      some parts are exceptionally well written whereas others are not (but can be). Now, things i loved 😀
      1) We humans by nature are sceptics which is pretty justified because these days cheating-swindling is the new trend. But treating everyone on the same footing is incorrect. — me likeyy 😀
      2) This deeper level is when we are ready to turn our Brain to ‘OFF’ mode and our hearts to ‘ON’ mode, in short, when we stop thinking and connect with the other person via our hearts. — another WOW 😀
      3) Another aspect of building trust and two way traffic is the power we bestow upon someone. The power to hurt us!
      4) the india example is fantastic ! omg, i never realised it fits so beautifully with this topic. WOW! hats off.
      5) We need to ‘BE’ trustworthy to have trustworthy people around us. — yes, another gem indeed 😀

      • Ash

        Hey Mr. Mamba!:)
        Where had you been all these days? Kickass? Not yet! But trying to get there.. But I’m sure you’re already there! 🙂

        I just end up taking my write ups to philosophical modes and try to bring it back to normal… may be that justifies the rollercoaster! 🙂

        Thank you for pointing out so beautifully.. I will revist my essay and see what did I do in between… Thank you so much for reviewing! 🙂
        And you didn’t write Sir? 🙂

        • black mamba

          U are a brainy kid.
          Ofcourse it has to be going on kickass. Stop being humble.

          I was drowned with optional and usual laziness until it stung me – PRELIMS r right here. And I had to be back :/

          I tend to give preference to GS based essays (I’d choose GS based topic over such a topic any day) But now I’ve made it a point to atleast read and properly review handful of philo essays as well to cushion myself in case UPSC decides to screw me up by giving abstract topics only.

    • minaxi

      Hiii Ash…
      Your essay has quality to hold attention of reader- Very good and You have dealt with trust part beautifully and remarkable, especially in body part.
      Now… The areas, I think, need more attention-
      Story- However story was beautiful and catching, But story is based on animals relations that too prey and predator.. It is against the nature, Here it shows that, trusting is risky and if it breaks, it will break the thread of life of poor deer. So these two animals can manage to live without trust.
      But in human life, trust is the base of life, We trust every other person for our development and betterment from infancy to old age.
      2- You have used, term ”having” two times, It looks little forces (IMO)
      3- I think, in NSG example, examiner can counter this point. Since India had to secure it’s interest and for many people, It was double standard action of west not to believe India, when they themselves were involved in arms race, and with time, India was completed to bit divert from it’s stand on nuclear use.
      4- Ambedkar part is beautiful and touching.
      You could have introduced some more dimensions, One more thing, I do not think, writing personally is right, Since from start of essay all are your view.
      Sorry Dear.. I am just learning to write and review essays, So it may not that helpful. If possible in near future.. lz review my essay too.
      Thanks..

      • Ash

        Hey Minaxi! 🙂 Reviews are always helpful Dearie! 🙂
        They trigger thinking. no one is an expert here… and even I’m learning you know .. so when you review my write-ups no apologies .. just come up with what you feel and I will come up with I feel – A secret to healthy discussion! :))

        1. I kinna love cartoons so made this story animated 🙂
        Thatz exactly what I’m trying to convey trusting IS indeed risky.. I know few people who say I don’t trust any1 except myself becoz trust break is like heart break … we get shattered! Here it is the life of a deer and human sense it is the very rationale of a man who starts doubting it.. SELF DOUBT is dangerous for our existence.. not evertym we havec nice ppl who encourage us.. and hence. growth of such ppl can b hit — even the personal life.. I just gave the marriage ex.. 🙂

        2. Okay! 🙂
        3. Exactly this is what I have pointed out.. Expectations.. Forget the West for a while…. Look at the image India created about itself.. now se Pakistan going for armament .. EXPECTED.. India sponsoring terrorism — NOT EXPECTED! C when expectations are crashed — trust deficit occurs.. Everyone knows the West will be involved in arms race.. I’m not getting into should India do it or not! I just say live by what you commit! I respect India’s decisions we need it…… but today if nations oppose (ignore China and Pak) India’s membership .. iz becoz of the deficit created earlier!
        But yeah I agree I need to put it in a betta way coz it may look anti-India! 🙂
        4. Thank yu! 🙂

        Trust me I had many more dimensions but word limit.. Darn!!!! 🙂
        I would definitely review.. just ping me I don’t scroll down the entire page.. I just read like few ppl’s essays like the ones I interact with!
        KWAR! 🙂
        Thank you for reviewing .. meant a lot! :))

        • minaxi

          • Ash

            Hey Dearie! 🙂

            1. First of all, you need to work on your English…. grammar and spellings (cud b a typo..so pardon me if they are)… you could consider reading newspapers ‘veeeeeeery slowly’… this wud help.. 🙂
            2. You have gone on talking about trust and its importance throughout the write-up which has given it a monotonous tone! 🙂
            3. I like the part where you have covered the NEED for trust
            4. At present, a single activity at border creates speculations and apprehensions. — I like the way you brot this up!
            5. Now see Govt ex, Panama leaks, border issues.. same examples just taking about one context…. monotonous!

            Bring in more dimensions.. One dimension- 2 examples would suffice.. 🙂 3-4 examples on same line are boring to read..
            6. I again like the part where you deal with y break trust..
            7. I like what you have conveyed in your conclusion but it can be projected in a better way..

            Overall, I like the simplicity of what thoughts… but yeah introduce more dimensions.. KWAR! 🙂

            • minaxi

              Thanks Dear… Suggestions to improve English are always welcome, And your suggestion is good and fruitful in many ways.:)
              Thanks, I will try to incorporate multi- dimensional aspects in future essays.
              Thanks You.. 🙂

    • Hi Ash, my views-
      – why are you using “her” for deer [let me exaggerate a bit- you are showing that females can’t save themselves :P]
      – story can be shortened a bit; innovative names- Ki Ki; Cassie; Samba 😛
      – “Though in this situation breaking of trust came up as a pleasant surprise”-WOW
      – you are equalizing trust with blind trust when you say Mind=OFF
      – if you have talked about Cold war, make sure that it gets its due space
      – instead of targeting India for breach of trust, take some other example like Nepal to prove India as right
      – acknowledge your hard work- “Trust is earned, respect is given and loyalty is demonstrated. Betrayal of anyone of those is to lose all three”- if you have written this on your own
      – conclusion has ended up with suggestions; try coming up with better conclusion
      – dimensions like why it takes seconds to break; importance of trust can be detailed

      • Ash

        Dimensions you mentioned are good! 🙂

    Trustworthiness is one of the immaculate and permanent belief, faith and reliance upon somebody which cannot easily be faded out. It is the creation of effort and time which a person has to invest in with a selflessness and non-greedy approach. It is the quality which has unparallel and invaluable importance in terms of any of monetary value whether in business, family and society. It cannot be snatched or stolen by someone. It has a permanent appearance not only in life but also even after death of a person which is being count on.

    Trustworthiness is a kind of immense faith (100%) which a person relied on individual, family, social, political, administrative and economical set up. But it has dual way of coming into people mind; in the one hand it comes as a hereditary and on the other hand it comes by an act, behavior and other kinds of practices.

    The hereditary root can be seen when a child is playing with his parents and grand-parents. In one case, a child is often educated by parents to jump off from an uplifted place like hill by giving assurance by the parents that they will catch him. The child does so because he carried immense trust in his parents. But even in hereditary origin, a parents and grand- parents have spared lots of time in acquainting themselves with child.

    Now, focusing on trustworthiness coming after an explicit behavior and act which are being followed by people in their lives for instance as human beings, we need emotional support from our family member, from our friends and neighbor. We are hungry for positive compliment and appreciation for right work. So, in the pursuance of doing right work with a right approach for well-being of the common man, we develop lots of friends. But we are always looking for reliable and responsible friendship upon whom we must have blindly belief. It is this reliability and immense faith in our friends which is required for the successful and effective execution of the purpose of our lives. But it also takes time to find a most reliable and responsible friends.

    Similarly, in professional life, a CEO requires a good team upon whom, he can believe for the rightful execution of a particular objective because a trustworthy team helps in bringing transparency, fairness, responsibility, accountability and timely execution of a work. It brings maximum cheers for the system by adopting non-partisan attitude.

    In the Indian context, looking back to the history of freedom struggle, the freedom fighters of different religion, faith, class, creed, region, language and society had shown immense faith and belief in one another which create a formidable trustworthiness among the citizens of Indian towards their leaders on the one hand and on the other hand the leaders have laid their immense faith in the power of people. The most sweet fruit comes in the form of independence was the result of being trustworthiness to each other.

    The path of peace, non-violence and non-interference followed by our ancestors has been followed by our ancestors, is yielding as making incredible India. The manifestation of this is seen in the fact that India, despite not being a signatory of NPT, CTBT and NOT BEING A MEMBER OF NSG, has been given, ‘special waiver’ status because of its neat and clean and responsible nuclear state. Although it has been the result of India’s great efforts and takes a long time but finally it is yielding fruits as seen in the form of making agreement with various countries like USA, JAPAN, AUSTRALIA etc.

    In this dynamic world, India has being pursuing for being one of the reliable and responsible economic driver, security provider and votary of peaceful world. For these objectives, India has developed too many friends, especially post LPG, but India has not alienated its most trusted partner like Russia. For instance, India has come way forward in coming close to the US in various sectors like economy, polity, social, technology and defense but it has continued to have good relations with Russia, the most trusted friend of India, especially in defense sector.

    The growing defense expenditure by various major countries has also seen as a response of growing rivalry between different states and the horror and fear are being created by various non-state actors like LeT, ALQAEDA, JeM, BOKOHARAM AND ISIS, the most-cruel group. In fighting this common threat, the world leaders still lacks trust in coming together. Even in some case, a group of countries are fighting against terrorist groups, they have been largely unsuccessful in eliminating and uprooting the terrorist organizations. The reason is that they have adopted a partisan approach in the form of good terrorist and bad terrorist.

    By citing terrorist activities, one of the greater manifestation of trustworthiness is the act of media. The place which looks invincible and inaccessible for many leaders and military establishment, media has been giving regular coverage of that place because of creating a trust in the mind of such groups by following their absolute code of conduct. Media has never been indulged in exposing privacy and secrecy of non-state actors, so they freely roam inside the stronghold of terrorist groups.

    Hence, being trustworthy is not only an act of developing closeness and showing great intimacy with a person, but it also depends on the rightful path of a person and an organization which is being followed in the execution of his legal work. Trustworthiness also gives a message of following the path of absolute flawlessness and immaculate because to build trust takes a long time, but breaking can be happened within few seconds.

    So promptness is the key to be trustworthy and thereby enjoying wealth of eternal happiness.

  • Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break
    A single incidence of violent outbreak against a minority or verbal slander against a community can sour the harmony in society and create a trust deficit that is there to last, as long as human memory may recall and remember and even beyond, through generations. A single evil deed may be enough to tar the reputation earned through years of hard labour and good intentions all along.
    However, having said that cooperation between all the stakeholders is inimical to this trust deficit from developing. Thus, the onus lies on all the parties to avoid such a situation from brewing up and ending in a total loss of faith in one another.

    Trust as essential – mutual value
    Trust as a virtue is a value to be possessed and showcased. Trusting somebody just for the sake of it, is something very hard to find.
    Human existence has its caveats attached.
    Human beings get insecure even about their own existence , let alone their company with others and how long would it sustain. This subtle insecurity manifests in various forms and one of it is a certain lack of trust about everything.
    However, it is implicit to stress upon the utility of trust in various dimensions of life.
    – THE FINANCIAL – Trust as efficient for the economy
    Trade, business and industry sustain on various dealings on daily basis that are based on a certain sense of faith, trust and continuity. A general lack of it would entail the whole association between all the stakeholders including the customers as redundant. This can be elucidated, by the fact, that substandard products supplied or marketed may have adverse effect on theft tire prospects of any trade
    – THE SOCIAL – Trust as the binding force of society
    The social realm is a complex one, and hinges on sustained and mutual cooperation, or an absence of hostility. Here trust plays an adhesive role in deepening the basis of an association as big as a functional society.
    – THE PERSONAL – Trust as fundamental to relationships
    The importance of trust can just not be overemphasised in the Private or personal realms. The closer the association is, more is the need for a greater compatibility and a general belief in each other’s positivity.Trust acts as a proxy for healthy relationship.

    There are several binaries that offer insights into how valuable is hard earned trust.
    Right from a pupil-master , to doctor-patient to highs echelons of the society, there are numerous binaries that stress upon the necessity of how critical is trust and faith to all the dealings in public sphere, notwithstanding of the fact that it is more so in the case of private relationships. A break of trust in any of this, definitely is detrimental to any prospects of a revival of prosperous and health dealings in the future.

    – Break of trust at the political level.
    Britishers had established themselves in India as a trading entity thanks to their negotiation capabilities with the rulers of the day. After firming their grip over the land they tended to encroach other domains that they had promised not to do upon their entry to the distant lands, in the first place.
    Thus, in modern history, this presented another example of breach of faith at the political level. Although there was a century of time in developing this nascent trust, it just took a single rebellion to end it all. This rivalry between the rulers then continued for much of the coming times.
    Later, in more recent history INDIA- CHINA bilateral relationships is an epic example of how relations can go sour for decades by a single act of aggression. India was first to propose the Panchsheel doctrine and had all the intentions in the world to adhere to it. But a general lack of trust from one side, led to the events, that finally went into the war, that has made it difficult to restore complete trust even to this day.

    Even at the mass political level, Political masters, even in a responsible democracy like ours, every now and then severe the trust of the masses, who have chosen them over others and imposed their faith in them through the ballot.

    – Break of trust at the institutional level
    The judiciary, the enforcement agencies, and the legislature in a nation are all pillars that operate upon the basis of reputation and respect for their integrity. All the renowned institutions of repute whether be in education, health or justice stand on the plinth of their integrity and reliability no matter what the circumstances be.
    Even a single instance of corruption, scandal or misappropriation can deny their authentic existence. In popular parlance, many guilty may be saved from the clutches of law due to want of evidence, but never should even a single innocent be subjected to punishment, because that would be the worst King of break if trust in an institution for upholding justice. Even a single such instance would be enough to tar the reputation of the whole institution, that would be detrimental to its existence.

    – Break of trust in the teacher- pupil relationship
    Long ago, in ancient India , the teacher pupil relationship and faith in each other was considered almost to the extent of being something sacred. The story of Dronacharya and his disciple Arjun is considered as the epitome of this faith, however the relatively lesser known is the one about the other disciple Eklavya. Although he was as good as Arjun, he was betrayed by his guru, because of his more humble origins. To this day, this may be seen as a compromise on the part of teacher and an undue use of the trust imposed by the pupil in him. Somehow this story evades all kinds of justification whatsoever and appears to be an instance of years of trust broken in a single instance as the self interests became supreme.
    Spiritual gurus and their following, based on the premise that trust in the divine is something sacred and inexplicable, has also not been spared from all kinds of worldly malaise. Many spiritual preachers have themselves been caught in the very acts of corruption and indecency that they condemn every now and then.
    A breach of trust by even a single person can be enough to create a general distrust of the whole lot.

    – Break of trust in personal relationship
    Be it an affinal or sanguinal relationship, all are firmly rooted in a trust in the sanctity of the connect. More important then the social sanction for any relationship is the need for relating it to the individuals involved. No relationship can sustain for long, even be it the one between parents and children, until and unless a total faith and trust in the goodwill of ‘other’ is maintained.
    The old age homes, the orphanages and the widow sanctuaries testify this fact that no amount of social pressure can keep these relationships intact until and unless the individuals involved take an initiative to fill the trust deficit that may exist in all kinds of relationships in the personal domains.

    Thus, to sum it all, Trust as a value and component of life, can be compared to a a glass castle, with each pillar hinging on the other, and the whole building coming down in a single hit, never to be repaired as easily as it was brought down. Taking years to build and maintain, an institution or relationship, whether be it in public and private sphere, may be shred by a single instance of anger, fury and loss of a sense of control.
    To conclude,
    ‘Trust is pretty easy to build, a little difficult to sustain and a whole lot tougher to preserve for ever’

    • InsightsOfficialReview

      Your introduction starts on a nice note. It seems like you will give a central theme, a direction to your essay. But, in introduction itself, you directly started providing solution which should come only after you have analysed the problems in detail.

      In your body, you have explored multiple dimensions. But what you need to do is to connect them together and bring a flow in your answer. Every para should be an extended argument of previous paragraph.

          • briganzza

            sir plz if you have some time plz review my essay as well

          • briganzza

            sir plz ek bar review kar do

            ‘Subah ka nashta Kabul mein, dopahar ka khana Lahore mein aur rat ka khana Delhi mein’(breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and dinner at delhi) these are the words which must have echoed through the hearts of many Indians and also our PM Modiji when he made the surprise stop at Lahore to wish his Pakistani counterpart on his birthday. The thaw, the warmth, the trust in the relationship was a surprise for the most people as they were not aware of the backchannel talks that had been going on for a long period. Then the Pathankot happened. A group of six armed combatants infiltrated through the international border and attacked the Pathankot airbase. Apart from lives of soldiers, there was one main casualty the India-Pak relationship. The trust that was built over years was broken in a second.

            Trust is a sine-qua-non for any healthy relationship. It is like climbing top of mountain you take time to get to top but one wrong mistake and it all ends. It is generated through care, warmth , affection, kindness , honesty , truthfulness and lot more things. It is that abstract concept that makes the relationships click.

            Trust is one such commodity that India has huge reserves of. Our values of sarva dharma sambhav , Vasudev Kutumbkam, Satyamev Jayate signify our ideals in 3Ts – trust, truthfulness and tolerance . Trust is our soft power that makes us stand out from the rest. Recently Chinese premier has also said India had dominated China for over 2000years without sending a single man. The civilizational history of India is fertile with values of trust and humanity where leaders like Ashoka, Akbar have left their indelible imprints. In modern times leaders like Nehru, Gandhi, Maulana Azad, Bhagat Singh, Ambedkar have kept their traditions alive. They have given us the constitution which preserves and nourishes our trust and tolerance.

            But of late there have been some incidents which can undo the years of work of our great leaders and break the bonds of trust. The diversity that they championed has been attacked. Take for eg the Dadri lynching incident where a man of minority community was beaten to death under the presumption that he consumed beef. Similarly a youth was forced to take his life as he was a dalit.

            Our leaders like Gandhiji who have fought Caste system have also stood against the atrocities of racism. They exerted the necessary pressure on the world to prohibit racism. But today racial attacks like the one on Tanzanian girl in Bangalore dot the country. Our great leaders also supported the independence movement of African and Asian countries. Our pharmaceutical industry has continued there tradition of trust and has acted as affordable and medical service provider to these underdeveloped nations. But the recent incident where our PM supposedly gave the private assurances to Multinationals to not use compulsory licensing clause is like breaking the trust.

            Take another leader Nehru who laid the foundation of our modern science established the temples of modern India. Have we kept up with our tryst with science ? If the last Indian science congress or the lack of spending in R&D is anything to go by then surely answer would be in negative.

            Fortunately there is a silver lining. There are still areas where we have fared well, where we have continued trust building activity. These areas range from implementing democratic values right from grassroots level to support of island nations ravaged by the surging climate changes. We have provided largest peace keeping forces in the civil war ravaged nations . We have continued to oppose and object the unjust like the nuclear world order.

            We have let ourselves down but have not failed . The future lies in making amends and following in with development of trust with all stakeholders. The 3Ts- trust, truth and tolerance have to be adopted in all walks of life. Recent acts of government to reach out to minorities, the backward and deprived through schemes like Nai Manzil, Stand up india , Mudra Bank are a great beginning. With Pakistan a new trust building phase has started with sharing of intelligence information related to terrorist crossing border by Pakistani NSA. Joint probe into terror attack is going on and who knows may be just like Modiji we all can have breakfast at Kabul, lunch at Lahore and Dinner at Delhi.

    “Trust take year to build, second to break”

    Trust is significant in it’s respective domain whether it is inter-nation or inter-organisation or intra-organisation or between two frinds becoming partner in thier common goal. ‘Trust’ is a classical case where on can co-realate with ‘success’. let’s see how?

    As success take 100% to sail off. However, no matter how near about success you were whether it is 99.99% seems useless until it is filled by another 0.01% . Same the case with trust, it takes alot to fill the trust deficit same as 100% but any minute deficit make it to suspicion and meaningless that has to be said a case of little trust but not trust is there.

    Building of turst is as same as it is being discussed above it take years to build but second to break i.e. a minute deficit make it meaningless within second. It has huge domain and signifcant role to play in building of peaceful world or bulding harmonious society or harmonious ‘state’ or a life full of happiness to an individual domain.

    India and Pakistan both being the neighbour country where alot potential has to be realised if it harnessed well through it’s better trust building and reducing gap of trust deficit. As India invest huge amount of GDP in it’s military and siyachin protection which is undue once this trust deficit is taken care of. However it remain the bigger challenge in last decades and remain to do so. Same amount can be utilised in the cause of humainty i.e addressing the issues of hunger, health, education etc. India being the soft power has foreign policy of peaceful co-existence and frindly relation with neighbour countries here trust building is critical to harness it’s full potential.

    Hence, we could achive the “Bashudhaiv kutumbkam” and will move to more peacefull world. It is much needed to current world order. However, it could not be so easy as it take long time to build trust between the nations. Once it is achived the result has to be great for humanity atlarge.

    An organisation where ‘trust’ has to be prime value for any orgainsation whether it is inter or intra. Until it is not there then it would be hard to harness the real potential in organisation as productivity of an idividual is associated with moral of individual. hence it is necessity of an organisation to take care of it. It develop more positive realtionship between emloyeer and employee.

    Life is a long journey we come across with many people in our personal life and professional life and we meet on many people as we move on from one place to another to achie more and more. Process goes on it never ends until we die. In this long journey which is life we forge long relationship with our friends and colleagues, sub-ordinates all these realtionship are part of life. One has to take care of this side also along his/her work. As it could be seen we channelise our energy to work if we hae great energy that all come from not only within but also othes and certainly they are indispencible. Hence, their role and your realtaionship matters alot in the context of one’s productivity. Trust is great factor in forging close and great relation between them. It develops with love and care and take time to reach it’s peak but some stupidity make it worthless.

    Trust takes years to build, seconds to break

    Trust is what you built a relation with human, organization, society, country over the period of time. To gain trust one should be ready to do sacrifice such as time, resources; more so attitude, ethics, punctuality matters. Whom you trust or not is entirely depends upon one’s circumstances, national interests, often personal – friends, parents, relatives etc.

    Trust building is related to multi aspects such as competence in profession, compassionate for others, caring attitude, respects towards society. It is also a continuous process. If Govt is deputing an official as a spy (RAW), it evaluates that official’s track record of professionalism, patriotism, sincerity, confidentiality among others. Such official is again put under test of given aspects – it can also be said a continuous process. At any point of time if he/she violates against the will of deputation what was built over the entire his service could be lost.

    Trust also tests one’s ethics. Recent reveal of Panama papers lists prominent personalities which include political, business, academic, theatre who most of them enjoyed high respects and positions in society, hierarchy. Now question comes what society had trusted over these fellows was justifiable or otherwise. No doubt, they might had been put hard work in their profession, sacrificed many a times for well being of the society through advertisement, charity, smart work etc If such allegations proven, trust they built up over the decades will be broken in seconds. There shall be a mechanism to test one’s trust and honest but it is a person who decides.

    Either in contemporary time or past a country do trust over another country – neighbour or distant one upon it’s domestic compulsions for meeting energy requirements, strategic point of view, cultural relations, technology advancement etc and often turned into bilateral agreement or alliance with checks and balances such as Indo Franc alliance during Tipu Sultan, Indo US nuclear agreement, MAUSAM project with SAARC nations, extradition treaties etc. However, abrupt steps without pondering over mutual relationship often led to trust deficit – what India perceived with Nepal in recent times and collapse of foreign secretary talks between India and Pakistan are fine examples in this regard. If we see China, it’s double stand over inclusion of India in UNSC, restricting process of sanctions over Masood Al Azar, JeM Chief, OBOR among few violates what India concluded six decades back in Panchsheel agreement for it’s core interests in global politics especially Asia.

    Trust concept helps to reap various benefits such as happiness, income, livelihood, respect etc. A person who gains trust of parents, society, employer through his attitude, profession enjoys all these given aspects. But it becomes indigestible when that person neglects parents in their old age, escaping from situation of crisis in an organization, involvement in a project/allocation scam.

    Revelation of wiki leaks brought USA (NSA) snooping over various countries citizens including New Zeland exhibited the kind of trust USA had over it’s allied nations. When such things come to fore the question comes whom to trust and to what extent it is reliable? Therefore, building trust and breaking the same in seconds is a debate.

    Two adults when tied nuptial knot often with parental compulsion start understanding, do journey of life together, living for one another as fundamental. They built family like a castle if social circumstances permit or everything goes according to their wish. However, when one of them eloped with opposite sex or commits a serious offence wilfully, the kind of trust they perceived over the period of time breaks away. It further led to litigations, disturbance, violence, loss of economy, unrest in life. Critics argue that it is necessary for economy to thrive but it is not good to well being society.

    Citizen and Govt always do journey on the concept of trust and mutual understanding; it is true in democratic set up. When key ministers of that democratic elected Govt involved in scams like 2G, Coal block allocations such Govts are not welcomed to rule – 2014 Parliament elections though had done good job since freedom struggle. So, winning trust of others also depends on your alliance.

    So trust takes years to build, seconds to break. Understanding of this saying is more relevant than the past.

    • Hello bhai 🙂
      bro, seriously speaking, never say u have to sacrifice ethics etc to be truthful and all. This is surely a hypocritical statement.( i know aapne flow me likhi hai galti se, but correct it).
      2nd para- didnt get much :/
      panama wala part good, can clarify more with more simplicity.
      Bhai beech me you have given a lot of diverse example even upto Masood. I liked that part but do not mention too much details. Just kuch points lo aur unpe hi focus karo. But beech wala part acha hai!
      Conclusion me you write what is the crux of ur essay!! aapne nhi likha hai wo! you can work on that part!:)
      Keep writing Eswar 🙂

    • Namrata

      hey eswar ..good attempt with numerous examples. However areas of improvement:
      1. with so many examples it just seemed listing of egs. flow took a backseat.
      2. there are numerous grammar mistakes .. regarding tenses and all .. do look into them .. if they are by mistake then fine ..but if they are genuine errors .. well no worries .. we still have time .. u can work on such errors 🙂
      3. conclusion is abrupt
      4. overall – connectivity between the paras and of each para to the topic seemed missing ..
      keep writing and reviewing .. nice attempt but lots of scope of improvement .. 🙂

    Trust, according to me generates acceptance and guarantees about the action and attitude of person or organisation. If we have trust in someone we are surely expect just response from him. It is a reputation which is built block by block. But can be ruined in a single blow of wrong action.

    Trust is a very important parameter of relationship and it is considered foundation stone upon which whole structure of relationship stand. Trust is a binding agent and crucial element in any relationship, be it Personal like marriage, family; Political like citizen state relationship, leader and follower, Business Organisation and its customers. Doctor and Patient etc.

    Trust building is a part of Public Relation management in big companies and political parties which spend a great deal of money and time on advertisement and other campaign to build a brand image. Recent example of how trust plays an important role in business is of a well-known noodle making company Nestle with brand Maggi, which has suffered heavy losses for violating food standard. This not only resulted in the monetary loss but also seriously affected the brand image and trust which it has built over the years by its extensive marketing campaign. But a single act of misconduct/ improper management of quality check resulted in the loss of trust among its customer. To rebuild the same level of trust is a toiling process.

    Being a trustworthy is quality which every employer demands from his employee, every follower seeks in his leader. It is a quality which help in building bonds and rapport. Similar is the Whistle-blower Protection Act which creates trust in the Whistle-blower regarding their anonymity and security post any complaint against any misconducts. In cricket, Captain is considered trustworthy and hence it develops confidence in his entire team with his trust. In India financial regulatory organisation like SEBI, RBI has developed its trustworthiness which has helped to gain Economic Stability in the time when other part of the world are in financial crisis.

    Trust in the Bhaghwat Gita can be related to Bhakti Yoga which says to have complete faith in the God and doing everything in the service of God. By constantly working with this faith, we will surely achieve the Supreme Goal. It is the same power of Trust which has shown miracles like treating incurable diseases, disability etc. Sometimes trust can be a motivator which helps in achieving difficult goals.

    Trust also puts us in vulnerable situation. Sometimes too much trust also result in the breach of trust. Like for example Sub Prime crisis in which investors put blind trust in good ratings provided by rating agencies. People trusting these high trustworthy ratings invested heavily in Real Esate which created bubble and blasted into Sub Prime Crises of 2008

    Nature of Human Being is unpredictable and there cannot be one pattern or standard rule of his behaviour. Humans have intellect and it is this intellect that force us t behave according to our own interest base on the Pleasure and Pain.

    Human Being is Political. He will act in the personal interest if provided opportunity. There is nothing like trust from realistic point of view. There are no permanent friend and no permanent enemy. Case in point is 1999 Kargil War, in which just after few days after the then PM Vajpayee’ s visit in good gesture by Bus and signing of Lahore Declaration, Pakistan’s Military govt had declared war on India. Thus to break or not to break trust is subjected to self-interest from realistic point of view

    Although we put ourselves in vulnerable situation by trusting another person, there is also an argument that trust develops trust i.e. if we trust others we are likely to be trusted. This is the case in personal relationship when husband and wife, Parent and Child…. trust each other and develops strong bond of relationship.

    Similarly it is important to have mutual trust between State and its Citizen to have ‘stable and united’ state. A state in which citizen loses trust is subjected to revolt, civil war and hence vulnerable to external threats. Therefore state should do all possible measure to keep state united by building trust in all section of society

    Sometimes our experience are such, that we don’t want to take risk with people or an organisation that has previously breached our trust. People or organisation with negative experience with other develops an image in their mind and believe that same pattern of behaviour may be repeated and in order to become extra cautious trust is lost. With this mindset of a person which has lost his trust in another person or organisation, it is very difficult and time taking process to build the same level of trust back. For example when a person has survived dangerous flood or saved from being drowned in river will fear large water body, because his trust with it is lost and hence will develop a sense of fear to avoid the prospective pain

    Trust is very important for building a long lasting relationship which can be developed only when integrity in behaviour is observed for a long period of time consistently. But it will take seconds to lose those efforts of building act by single mistake of immoral or unjust act. Trust can be seen from realistic point of view in order to develop more perceived sense of pleasure in political field. Being trustworthy is an achievement and a lifelong effort which we should try to become in our life in order to be accepted by the society.

    Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break
    Back in Year 1998,India’s captain Md.Azharuddin was one of the most
    beloved cricketer of our country.Some called him one of the greatest
    cricketing mind which our country had ever produced.This love,affection
    and respect was all due to hard work and performance of almost 15
    years.But, an year later the scandalous match fixing report emerged,
    Azharuddin was held responsible for it. He was imposed life ban from
    cricket, suddenly he lost all the credibility which he had achieved in
    years.All the trust was lost and that too in “seconds”, metaphorically.
    This shows how a single misdeed can waste all the hard work done over in
    years.This shows how fragile trust can be.Trust is a belief in an
    entity for coming up to the expectations which one beholds of them.Trust
    ,intrinsically, comes gradually only after passage of time and positive
    actions.However, an instance where the expectations are not met, breaks
    the trust which was nurtured only after sequence of positive
    behavior.Trust has a key role to play in our day to day life.Trust is
    probably the most essential requirement in politics,business and
    family.One would vote only to that leader who has gained trust of the
    masses, similarly people would invest money in only those companies
    which has showed element of fairness and trust. In families, trust has a
    much deeper impact.

    Why do we vote for a particular leader?Will we ever vote to a person who
    was involved in corruption or criminal activities? Answer for it lies
    in the trust factor which one has towards the leader. USA president
    Mr.Bill Clinton held a wide support among American masses. He was
    considered an astute leader and caring family man. But, Monika Lewinsky
    Scandal destroyed all the respect which he had gained. Still, today his
    PR team is involved in image makeover.People believed if Mr.Clinton
    can’t respect the trust of his wife then he is not worthy to deserve
    their trust. Similarly, even in economics everything is second only to
    trust. Capitalism took the world by storm once Adam Smith proposed it in
    1776. Soon, several European and American country chose it because they
    believed in this economic model and were influenced by its success.For
    almost 150 years, it proved it’s worth but a single economic crisis in
    1929 exposed the loopholes in it.Countries lost trust in capitalism and
    started moving to other economic model. On an interesting note have we
    ever wondered, why Late Dhirubhai Ambani chose the name “Reliance” for
    his company, probably because he knew that trust is the key to success
    in business, so by the name itself he gave the message to “rely” on
    their company as it was trustful. Trust between siblings,spouses craft
    the contours of their relationships.Roots of majority of family problems
    lies in trust issues such as property disputes and marriage
    troubles.Years of relationship ends just because of an unfaithful act of
    a single day.Thus, the keystone of every relationship is trust.

    However, there is also an other side of the story. Was the trust towards
    some one so weak that it broke from a single event? Does the support,
    help, returns provided by a company means nothing just because of one
    crisis? These let us to think that was it a “trust” in true sense. If a
    couple breaks up just because of one mistake, shows that it lacked trust
    from the initial phase of the relationship. Similarly, if a leader
    loses our trust just because of one failure shows that it was not the
    trust which converted into voting rather it was lack of choice because
    of which people voted him/her.Trust is something which stays with the
    bearer even in most hostile conditions. Mahatma Gandhi led 3 famous mass
    campaigns such as Non Cooperation Movement(1920),Civil Disobedience
    Movement(1930) and Quit India Movement(1942). Unfortunately, these
    movements failed to achieve their goals.Due to abrupt ending of Non
    Cooperation Movement, people got angry. But, the trust of the masses
    remained in Gandhiji. This is an perfect example which shows that how
    trust can’t be shattered in “Seconds”. Further, whenever relationship
    undergoes a trust crisis, it mostly matures.The understanding develops
    between the parties. Also, overall improvement of setup takes place.
    Such as earlier discussed how capitalism suffered trust deficit after
    1929. However, with Keynesian Economic model , it only came up with
    better and much improved version. So, trust deficit also provides an
    opportunity to reshape the premises of relationship.

    No doubt Trust is a sensitive component which requires extreme care and
    protection by the various stakeholders.A single mistake can finish a
    relationship of decades.But, situation where trust crisis arises also
    provide an opportunity to improve the existing relationship. Further, a
    relationship undergoes a true test in such time of crisis.However, in no
    scenario one should play with the trust of other person. Trust towards
    someone or something shows that how much crucial function the entity
    plays in individual’s life. Trust is one of the purest form of emotion
    that needs to be upheld in any situation as it is the result of
    persistent attempts and one should not let it go in vain just due to one
    single act.

    TRUST TAKES YEARS TO BUILD,SECONDS TO BREAK

    We all hear the word Trust in our daily life from people saying to others as well we also do the same . But what does TRUST refers to and why it takes years to build and seconds to break ?

    It is a belief on someones actions which makes us feel a sense of comfort that , the person wouldn’t do anything, that is against our will and only does perform any action which would be for our goodness .Every human do not immediately trust anyone. It is the natural process of a human being to put faith on a person by understanding his/her attitude towards them.

    From the day we step out of our house in our Life into a social environment which is mostly a school , we do make friends throughout our journey from kindergarten to the completion of our school . But,only a few remains in our hearts throughout our life with whom we who prefer to share our Happiness and grief .This freedom to share with our selective friends is due to the TRUST that we have on them which took years to build through various interactions with them in our life .

    If my marriage was fixed with a girl and i shared her phone number and photos with my most trusted friend who have been with me throughout my school days and one the day of my marriage, i hear that my most trusted friend elopes with my fiancee .This situation would surely bring a shock in me which clearly indicates my trust on my fiend have been broken within a second .

    Though such a incident might have happened in my life , there are many more instances from various spheres that can cited on the building of trust through years and which have broken in seconds .

    Recently , In the Business sector we could see the favorite noodle brand MAGGI famous among the kids took a sudden toll in business due to certain media reports citing that the noodles have been found with higher levels of Mono Sodium Glutamate ( MSG ) which is used to taste good but can cause health problems if consumed . The MAGGI noodles is yet to recover from fall in the business but the trust that it build among the people through advertisements and quality was lost in fraction of second . This clearly shows it is hard to build trust among the people but easy to lose it with a small deviation from standards .

    Another scenario that can be pointed here is of the leading tennis player Maria Sharapova revealing that she had unknowingly taken a drug that is banned by the International Tennis Federation which immediately made many of her Sponsors to drop her from further commercial advertisements .But , it is her hard work at the tennis court for more than a decade that made her a player of high stature which was lost in a fraction of second .

    Such incidents occur frequently and it can happen even at the slightest mistake of any of our members in a team . This can be shown by the previous government that ruled India for the past 10 years . The United Progressive Alliance came to power in 2004 which led to groundbreaking legislation’s and programs like RTI ( Right To Information ) and Mahatma Gandhi National Employment Guarantee Scheme which made it a populist government that helped the political alliance to again come to power in 2009 .

    Nevertheless of the hard work put by the UPA government to move India forward during the times of Global crisis but it was internally affected by allegations of scams related to 2G Spectrum and (CWG) Common Wealth Games which took a hard hit on the image on the government and ultimately people voted it out of power in the 2014 General Elections .

    From the above cases discussed , we can see a Trust does takes a lot of time to build but a sense of betrayal leads to Distrust .

    The questions that ponders me is whether all trust breaks in a second which have been build over years ?

    It is NO !!! A Mothers relation and trust with her child cannot be broken within a second . Even the child grows up into an adult and considers mother to be a burden and sends to an old age home but the Mother would still the feel the pain, when she hear ,her son or daughter is facing some problem in their life .

    From my personal observations , i am of the opinion that ,trust does requires a lot to time to be build which is evident from my discussion but, at the same time it takes to break depends on the impact of the trust and influence that we have generated into the minds of the people who feel we have betrayed them by actions which amounted as distrust to them .

    • Hey Aravind 🙂

    • Profoundis

      i loved ur examples which are so nice including the eloping one ( but my suggestion is just avoid undermining examples) but i beg to differ with the MAGGI one bcz i don’t think it lost any trust rather business which is a pure speculation which happens in any business and in society(riots, unrest etc ) and relations as well we do distance some for a time being then realise and befriends with the same and it was not on trust but misinformations ..

      the question u raised in ur answer that every trust breaks in the same way was mind shocking …

      conclusion was so diplomatic

      bless urself my friend

      • Aravind Varier

    • yogi

      hello Aravind 🙂

      my views :-

      Intro: direcltly hitting on what does TRUST refers to and why it takes years to build and seconds to break ?—did not appeal much. Prepare a background like u did in last few weeks essay, that suits you. (perosnal opinion)

      Though such a incident might have happened in my life , there are many more instances from various spheres that can cited on the building of trust through years and which have broken in seconds .—I think this statement is redundent. Say it is different manner.

      All the cases u have discussed very will hit the theme of the essay. Frind eloping with the finacee was most interesting

      To make it holistic insightsofficialreview suggest to see the quote from other angle like you did in the end of the main body, mother-child waala example.

      Similarly u could have included suggestions to build trust, and some others aspects of trust.

      Conclusion, not impressive. It is a conclsuion but just restating what u have already said. Use conclusion to write beyond what is asked. Since I have been reading ur essay for wuite a long time . So a personal suggestion form my side is to include a little bit of philosophy in ur essays. (Just an opinion u may disagree )

      clarity in expression and order in presentation of the content is what i like the most in ur essay , keep it up 🙂

      Thanks and ATB 🙂

      • Aravind Varier

        Dear Yogi,

        1) I intentionally went with defining the statements and giving a basic explanation of the terms . I did write it through a story in my previous essays and some of them told me not to get into a story and again getting back to tell we are going to explain so and so in our essay .

        This made me to change my approach Today .I know You and Batman generally start with a story but some other candidates told me it looks like taking an interval in the beginning of the movie itself . Its not my personal opinion but changed it due to the feedback from other candidates . Will see the difference and flaws in both the approaches and take the most suited ones depending upon the topic .

        2) Yes , you are right the second statement is little bit redundant but i did have any other opinion to get into the flow at that moment .

        3) Yes , you are right , i am giving different angles to the statement itself to get a better analysis and give a FAIR JUDGEMENT .

        4) I want to really discuss something regarding CONCLUSION with you .

        See , yogi , Its impossible for me to give some philosophical expressions because it takes a lot of time for me to make such statements .

        You and Batman expect conclusion to be philosophical but i did research on that today and found a new approach which is given below : YOU ARE WELCOME TO ANALYZE MY NEW METHOD and PROVIDE YOUR FEEDBACK .

        WHAT CAN BE WRITTEN IN CONCLUSION APART FROM PHILOSOPHICAL STATEMENTS .

        If the question of the statement of the essay for example today’s quote says “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”

        try to pose questions by analyzing the quote

        PART 1 :“Trust take years to Build” – questions that be framed contradicting it

        question : Does trust always takes a lot of time to be build ( search for examples immediately were you can find trust is build quickly )

        PART 2 : ” Seconds to Break” – questions that be framed contradicting it

        question : Is it always easy to break a trust .try to look for example were you can say trust cannot be breached easily 🙂

        LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR 🙂

        CASE 1 : If trust is build SLOWLY , but it break SLOWLY

        CASE 2 : If trust is build SLOWLY , but it break FAST . ( Today’s Topic )

        CASE 3 : if trust is build FAST , but it break SLOWLY .

        CASE 4 : if trust is build FAST ,but it break FAST .

        though today’s essay is dealing with CASE 2 as cited above but, if a candidate is able to think more on the statement itself in different ways and frame appropriate examples in mind, then it will be helpful to write on both the aspects of the statement of the essay and helps to write a better conclusion which be similar to the FAIR JUDGEMENT we have on the essay .

        I AM GOING TO GIVE A FAIR JUDGEMENT IN MY ESSAY FROM NOW RATHER THAN WRITING SOME PHILOSOPHICAL STATEMENTS

        NOTE : The main reason for me to think deeper on this matter is YOGI and Batman who have been continuously telling me ” ARAVIND ……. YOUR CONCLUSION IS POOR ” 🙁 🙁 🙁

        From my basic Understanding on the conclusion :

        1) some say write a gist of the essay ( I personally felt it is kind of repeating the same what is said in the essay as a brief manner )

        2) some suggest to write Philosophical statements ( you and Batman ) to catch the attention of the examiner ( i am personally weak in creating philosophical statements )

        3) some suggest to write way foreword in their essay ( I personally found it to be a measure or improvements suggested by the candidate in the conclusion which is not appropriate )

        4) STILL IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING ( Give a FAIR JUDGEMENT of the essay by making different CASES from the statement by analyzing it .

        This helps us to write different angles on the statement as well as help us give a FAIR JUDGEMENT of the entire essay in the conclusion .

        Today’s essay was my first experiment and will develop further this approach depending upon the feedback from people like you and Batman .

        PLEASE SUGGEST FEEDBACK AND OPINION ON THIS NEW STRATEGY DEVELOPED BY ME

        THANK YOU 🙂

        • yogi

          honestly speaking apart from poor typing speed , one of the reason for me taking long time in writing essays is creating philosophical statements, so you are not alone my friend 😀
          coming to ur new appraoch
          –Give a FAIR JUDGEMENT of the essay by making different CASES from the statement by analyzing it —-this looks like a brilliant approach, would be able to SUGGEST FEEDBACK AND OPINION upon it only after reading the actual conclusion written based on this approach.

          For this Sunday’ essay —“The questions that ponders me is whether all trust breaks in a second which have been build over years ?
          It is NO !!! A Mothers relation and trust with her child cannot be broken within a second . Even the child grows up into an adult and considers mother to be a burden and sends to an old age home but the Mother would still the feel the pain, when she hear ,her son or daughter is facing some problem in their life .”— is the excerpt form ur essay is the part of ur conclusion ?. If yes, i could not see that as a conclusion and took that another dimension of the essay. As that was succeeded by —->”From my personal observations , i am of the opinion that ,trust does requires a lot to time to be build which is evident from my discussion but, at the same time it takes to break depends on the impact of the trust and influence that we have generated into the minds of the people who feel we have betrayed them by actions which amounted as distrust to them “— i took this as ur conclusion, which is more of the point (1 ) i.e “gist of the essay” aprroach
          Eager to see the new approach and trying the same if it serves the purpose 😛
          thanks 🙂

    One of the most valuable assets we can have in life is to be trustworthy. It is worth gold whether in business or friendships or family. When we can trust a person it creates a bond of loyalty that runs deep. And when someone can trust us it gives us that same bond of loyalty back. It is the trust on the rickshaw puller that he will take us to the right place that is why we board the rickshaw, it is trust on the doctor that is why we take medicine administered by him. It is more valuable than any amount of money or power because trust doesn’t have to ebb and flow like other things in life Trust can be permanent if someone do the right things and do things right away.

    Trust can be built in many ways. Spending time with someone, having fun, and even just talking can build trust. Showing someone that we are there for them when they are struggling with something- from homework to personal problems-is a great way to build trust. Depending on the relationship it can be built very fast or take months-even years to develop.

    For many people trusting people can be a big challenge. If we have been hurt or betrayed, we might feel like closing up is the best way to protect ourselves. We may feel scared to be hurt again by the same person or open up to open up to another person about our life. Although it may protect us from getting hurt, it also makes it difficult for us to create honest connections with people and build healthy relationships.

    When someone break our trust, how we might react:

    If we have had our trust broken by those closest to us like family or friends, it is normal to feel hurt and even betrayed. We may even start questioning other relationships. If the people who were supposed to be closest to us broke our trust, we might worry that someone else might break our trust (or the same person who we trust will do so again).

    In order to keep from getting hurt again, we may have started closing ourselves off to others. We may start omitting certain details of our life, or hiding how we truly feel so that this information would not be used against us. Building a mental wall that appears to protect us from sharing too much can feel like a natural defence. But when we completely close ourselves off, it can also have negative consequences. It can lead to:

    a) Stress: Constantly guarding ourselves is a strenuous job.

    b) Negative selftalk: When we hold all these emotions in they can become heavier and heavier. We may become sad, angry and frustrated with ourselves.

    c) Loneliness: We can even begin to fell more alienated by always trying to hide how we really feel.

    The benefits of rebuilding trust:

    When someone has betrayed our trust, we may feel reluctant to give them another chance. This is understandable and most people require at least some time and space in order to become clear on their feelings and whether or not they want to attempt to repair the damaged relationship. It is ultimately up to us to decide whether to work through the betrayal, but there are some cases when talking things can ultimately strengthen a relationship between two people.

    Effective communication may be able to help us move past the issues if the person is:

    a) Remorseful.

    b) Takes responsibility for their mistake.

    c) Is willingly to change and support us in moving past their betrayal and does not dismiss our feelings or urge to “get over it”.

    When we meet a new person and are still getting to know them, we may share a bit of ourselves and feel uncertain if that person is going to give good intensions and treat us with respect. It is a risk. When opening up to a new person, we might feel

    a) Nervous about if they will like me.

    b) Shy.

    c) Worried they will judge me.

    These are all normal things to feel when hanging out with someone new. But they are uncomfortable feelings and we have a lot to gain by moving through them. A relationship founded on the trust has many benefits:

    • Connections: When we feel connected with people we feel better. We share the stuff that makes us happy and the stuff that makes us sad. When we feel that we can share things with someone we trust, the good stuff feels better and the bad stuff doesn’t seem quite as bad.

    • Closer friendships.

    • Meaningful relationships with parents and family.

    • Healthier romantic relationships.

    “That just because someone else has disappointed us and broke our trust, this is not our fault. The action of other people should not stop us from opening us and buildings new connections”.

    If we are trying to start a relationship with someone who has difficulty trusting, it can be difficult. We might feel like they are distant or that they push us away sometimes. Patience is usually the key. Show them that we are there for them. With time, hopefully don’t though realize it is about their fear and about us.

    The goal is to form healthy, positive, mutually supportive relationships. Remember that regardless of the actions of others, we choose who we want to be. Don’t let other people’s decisions stop us from being happy, opening up and meeting some great people.

    भारत तथा पाकिस्तान में बातचीत को लेकर कई महीनो तक विश्वास बहाली हेतु उपाय किये जाते है परन्तु आतंकवाद की एक घटना दोनों देशो के मध्य विश्वास को तोड़ देती है तथा पुनः यथस्तिथि उत्पन्न हो जाती है. वही मानव का ईश्वर पर विश्वास हजारो वर्षो से चला आ रहा है तथा इतने सारे प्राकृतिक आपदाओं के बावजूद मानव ने ईश्वर से विश्वास को नहीं उठाया है. यही पर विश्वास एवं आस्था तथा अन्धविश्वास में अंतर समझ सकते है तथा यह सिद्ध होता है की विश्वास एक भावनात्मक लगाव तो है ही परन्तु यह वस्तुनिष्ठ प्रमाणों पर आधारित होता है तथा जिस प्रकार अज्ञान ज्ञान की प्राप्ति होते ही बिना एक क्षण के नष्ट हो जाता है उसी प्रकार विश्वास भी बिना क्षण गवाए नष्ट हो जाता है.

    विश्वास मानवीय समाज को एकजुट रखने के लिए नितांत आवश्यक है. विश्वास बहाली हेतु एक से अधिक मनुष्य अथवा एक से अधिक संस्थाओं की आवश्यकता होती है परन्तु यह मानवीय भावनात्मक अभियोग्यता से अनिवार्य रूप से जुडी होती है. हमने शायद ही कभी यह कहते हुए सुना हो की एक शेर ने किसी फलां इंसान का विश्वास तोड़ दिया अथवा किसी रोबोट ने इंसान का विश्वास तोड़ दिया एवं सुचारु रूप से काम नहीं किया.दरअसल विश्वास का निर्माण तभी हो सकता है जब मनुष्य के अंदर विवेक हो एवं वह तर्क इत्यादि का प्रयोग कर स्वतंत्र रूप से निर्णय निर्माण किया गया हो. परन्तु हमें उन परिस्थितियों को भी ध्यान में रखना चाहिए जब हम किसी व्यक्ति पर धोखेबाजी का आरोप लगाते है.

    दरअसल विश्वास की उत्त्पत्ति ही तब होती है जब हम किसी से कोई आकांक्षा करते है तथा बदले में हम हम ये उम्मीद करते है की हमारे आवश्यकता के अनुसार सामने वाला व्यक्ति अथवा संस्था हमरे हित के अनुरुप कार्य करेगी. परन्तु क्या यह सदैव अनिवार्य रूप से आवश्यक है की कोई व्यक्ति हमारे उम्मीदों के अनुरुप ही कार्य करेगा .प्रायः विरोधाभास की स्तिथि में लोग अपनी प्राथमिकताओं को तय करते है तथा उसके अनुरुप ही कार्य करते है. अब यदि उनके कार्य हमारी उम्मीदों के अनुरुप नहीं होंगे तो हम इसे धोखा कहने में तनिक भी देर नहीं लगाते है.

    अब भीष्म पितामह ने यदि पांडवों की सहायता नहीं की तो क्या उन्होंने किसी को धोखा दिया. शायद नहीं क्योंकि वे अपने कर्त्तव्य को सर्वाधिक पोरथमिक्त देते थे. इसी प्रकार यदि कोई व्यक्ति जिससे हम यह आकांछा करते है की वो हमारी की परिस्थिति में मदद करेगा तो यह प्रायः हमरी नासमझी होती है की हम सामने वाले की परिस्थिति को ध्यान में रखे बगैर केवल अपने हित की पूर्ति की आकांछा करने लगते है जो की भावनात्मक अभियोग्यता की कमी को भी दर्शाता है.

    दरअसल अविश्वास वह उत्पान होता है जहां कोई व्यक्ति अपारदर्शी तरीके से कोई कार्य करता है तथा उसकी नियत भी गड़बड़ होती है. यदि किस का उद्देश्य पवित्र है तथा कोई व्यक्ति वस्तुनिष्ठ आधारों पर अथवा अपने चरित्र के अनुसार ही कार्य करता है तब हम उस व्यक्ति को धोखेबाज नहीं कह सकते है.

    भगवान बुद्ध ने कहा था की दुःख का मुलभूत कारण है तृष्णा अथवा आकांछा करना. जब हम अत्यधिक आकांक्षा करने लगते है तभी हमें नाउम्मीदी भी होती है. परन्तु क्या ये मानव के लिए प्रायोगिक बात है की हम हमेशा ही एक ऐसा जीवन जिए जहाँ पर हम अपने आस पास की परिस्थितियों से निर्लिप्त होते हुए केवल बस अपना कर्म करते जाये तथा किसी से कोई उम्मीद ही न रखे. इसका उपाय गीता में बताया गया है -“योगसु कर्म कौशलम”

    अर्थात अपना कर्म करो परन्तु बदले में किसी से कुछ भी आकांछा न रखो .इसलिए न ही हम उम्मीद रखेंगे न ही विश्वासघात होगा तथा न ही हमें दुःख होगा. परन्तु ऐसा शायद वर्तमान में निम्न वजहों से संभव नहीं हो पाता है.

    दरअसल हमारी स्वार्थी प्रकृति ही इस तृष्णा एवं अविश्वास के केंद्र में होती है. प्रायः समाज में यह देखा जाता है की वही मनुष्य धोखा देता है जो की चारित्रिक रूप से सत्यनिष्ठता के मूल्य का पालन करने में असमर्थ होते है. ऐसे मनुष्य सदैव उपयोगितावादी दृष्टिकोण से ही व्यव्हार करते है तथा समय आने पर केवल लाभ के विषय में सोचते है तथा नियम के विषय में नहीं. कई बार यह उपयोगितावादी दृष्टिकोण लाभदायक भी होता है. जैसे एक निर्वाचित सरकार यदि गरीबो का उठान करने हेतु कर आरोपण करती है तो यह अमीरों के साथ कोई धोखा नहीं होगा, परन्तु वही यदि एक राजनेता निजी स्वार्थ के लिए किसानों की जमीन को जबरन हथिया लेता है तो यह समाज के साथ विश्वासघात कहा जायेगा.

    शायद विश्वासघात से उत्पन्न दुख को क्षमा रूपी मूल्य द्वारा दूर किया जा सकता है. “क्षमा बडन को चाहिए व् छोटन को उत्पात”. यह वाक्य दर्शाता है की हम अपने कर्मो को निष्काम भाव से करे तथा केवल किसी के प्रति व्यव्हार को अपने लाभ के दृष्टिकोण से न देखे. विश्वास एक आत्मीय सम्बन्ध है न की तार्किक जिसे तर्क की कसौटी पर कसा जाये. हमारा कार्य है सदैव अपने मूल्यों के अनुसार एवं नियमबद्ध आचरण करना. अब यदि किसी व्यक्ति को किसी खास परिस्थिति में हमारे आचरण से दुःख उत्पन्न होता है तो हो सकता है की वह व्यक्ति हमारे स्वाभाव से ही परिचित न हो परन्तु यदि हम सदैव नियमबद्ध रूप से अपने चरित्र की श्रेष्ठता के अनुसार कार्य करते रहेंगे एवं समाज के एक वृहद् वर्ग के उत्थान के लिए सोचते हुए कार्य करेंगे तो हमारे कर्मो के प्रति अविश्वास उत्पन्न होने का सवाल ही नहीं उठता है.

    गांधी जी ने सर्वोदय की संकल्पना देते हुए कहा था की आदमी का हित समाज के हित में ही निहित है तथा जब तक हम एक होकर परस्पर लाभ के लिए कार्य नहीं करेंगे तब तक समाज में अविश्वास उत्पन्न होता रहेगा तथा यही अविश्वास आगे चलकर पाप एवं समाज के पतन का कारण बनेगा.इसलिए आज आवश्यकता है की हम “परहित सरस धर्म नहीं भाई, पर पीड़ा सह नहीं अधमाई” के सिद्धांत का पालन करे तथा समाज में अविश्वास जैसी सामाजिक बुराइओं का अंत करे.

      Hello Nupur..
      Well, I am going to review, And you have to review my review so that, I can review better next time..
      Here it goes-
      1- Introduction is good, But you itself in intro tried to explain the difference between trust and blind trust, I think, difference could be mentioned in body part. And intro must provide the base for whole answer.
      2- Second paragraph is good but you did not mention why trust is good for society.
      3- Reason to have expectations are not clear to me.
      But for me, It was a philosophical essay and you have attempted it in brilliantly philosophical way, However, some more example or broken trust can be added.
      Over all a good read Dear.. But as a reader and a person, who used to read your answer, I believe you can write even better essay.
      Thanks

      • Nupur

        Nice review minaxi. actually in the reason of expectation i wanted to tell that we trust someone and we always expect him to behave in a pretty predictable way. But it is not always that the person who is being trusted behaves in that way. see more we expect and more we are hurt.
        Yes dear i believe that i can write a better essay as it became a little monotonous. it is a problem in philosophical essays that we have the concept but we are sometimes unable to link them with the practical world.
        Thanks:)

      Hello Nupur ji,
      nice attempt lekin jahan tak mera anuman hai.. introduction ki shruat positive note se kariye jo galati maine bhi ki
      Content acha hai lekin structuring aur order par dhyan dijiye
      Trust ko define kariye aur kaisae develop hpta hai .. koi historical event yaad ho to mention kijiye.. BhISm vala kathan….
      aapne mention kiya hai vishvas ke liye vivek jaruri hai.. ye point contradict kiya ja sakta hai… ek navjat shishu ko jab ham hava mein uchal te hai to vo hasta hai is vishvas ke sath ki ham usse god lenge….
      socio economic perspective bhi add kar sakte hai… happiness index,FDI and FII
      conclusion aur better ho sakta tha by summarizing major points of your content
      But overall nice attempt.. you may write much much better than this
      Keep writing and All the best!!

  • Anit ifs

    Trust is hard to define. We can always say that it is the mutual feeling of non harm, reciprocity and an expectation of the fulfilment of an agreement. But, then we would be touching the surface only.

    Trust is a far deeper entity, it is more like the feeling of mutual non violence in an otherwise violent world, it is the assurance that the person in which you have invested your trust is in fact “deserving” of such trust, it is going above the law of the jungle. Trust is something akin to expecting the divine in physical form of man.

    Importance of Trust

    What is the greatest achievement of mankind till date? We have made space travel possible, been able to look into the constituting elements of matter and theorised about everything from nature of universe to the nature of God. But, the greatest achievement of our cumulative global civilisation according to me is the development of trust.

    Human nature is not entirely a cognitive concept. There are genes working from eons ago that recognise only the immutable law of nature, that of fish eat fish, that of fear of the things unknown, of leaving no quarter for anyone else. With all these forces working against us, how did we manage to develop trust amongst us and then how were we able to scale it up to a leave of institutions, nations and pan national bodies?

    This is precisely where our biggest achievement lies. We as rational and moral beings have been able to trust each other to not unleash our innate animal nature agasint each other. We have been able to live in harmony and peace because of that. The underlying importance of trust for the societal construct is so immense that it is unseen, that is to say, it is like air, we only realise its presence in retrospect when we are in lack of it!

    To create continous web of trust means that each of the nodes in the web is constituted by an individual who has given up his natural proclivity for distrust and also has decided to support the growth of the overall group in place of the self. Surprisingly, the cultural construct has triumphed over every suspicion, fear, anger that the organisms have seen in their evolutionary journey. No doubt, it is such a precious quantity, for once broken, its delicate walls can never be mended entirely.

    The question arises that why do we stress upon trust so much? Our religions teach truth, which is in fact a trust in the objectivity of a person. We stress upon ethics and morals which too is a trust in the highest ideals of mankind. The government asks for trust while it’s getting elected and so do people while interacting with each other. A man asks for the trust of his to be wife, a seller for the trust of the buyer and so on.

    Social Relevance of trust

    In all of these interactions we will see that there is no alternative to go forward if there is no trust. A marriage, in which two partners cannot trust each other is not a marriage at all, so the reason that we stress upon it so much is that without it, our society cannot simply function!

    Of course we think that it is the law system which is holding up the foundation stone of our society. This is a common myth built on the abstraction of the idea of punishment and reward. We have to realise that the fear of law itself is built upon the trust that the law would take its due course, that the agents of law would commit themselves towards its implementation and that it would punish when it should and give a reward when it says so.

    
It would not be thefore absurd to think that the soicety without trust would go back into the hoary darkness of animalism. When all that we care about is our own self interest, then there exists no reason to care about the society as a whole, to not loot the stores and not rape and plunder.

    PErhaps the biggest cost of broken trust has to be paid by the people themselves. When relations go awry due to lack of fulflimment of commitments, like a child being abandoned, the entire course of his/her life is devastated by the aftershocks of burnt bridges, in this case with the society as a whole. The phenomenon of delinquents and child criminals is on the rise because our society as a hwole has lost the trust that the young ones should have been able to invest in it.

    If a child is abused, he/she cannot trust anyone for the rest of their lives.

    Once a person gets a basic mistrust syndrome, he/she would not venture out of their mental sphere. The person would stop caring for anyone else too. This is what the definiton of a sociopath is.

    Economically

    Honesty amongst theives best explains the economic underpinning of trust. There cannot be any economic activity possible if we cannot trust each other. The seller won’t part with his goods and the buyer wouldn’t pay. The most ridiculous security arrangements would fall apart if there is no trust in the mechanism of it.

    In early times, trade and commerce was carried out only by barter, the minimal trust requiring form of economic exchange. Then traders started issuing their bills or “Hundis” which allowed faster and bigger business deals. The introduction of kings and their coins made it possible to buy enormous amounts of goods, based only on the promise of the king, that the coin would be redeemed in its value by anyone and everyone. 

What happens then, if there is no trust. The economic impact is staggering. First of all, complicated securitisation procedures are required and then, the speed of commerce slows down. There is therefore a raised cost that has to be paid for the upkeep of the security system and if the costs for security exceed that of the profit, then the transactions don’t take place.

    IN a perfectly trustworthy world, there would be no need of the police, of monitering agencies, of punishments and even wars. All of the resources being wasted due to the essential lack of trust in society would be diverted to productive uses to raise standards of people. If India trusted pakistan and vice versa, their armies owuld be disbanded and people would won’t have to fear any “non state” actor ever again.

    It is however the breach of trust between teh two nations that has raised the cost of economics for both of them. Our goods are traded via Dubai in a complecated musical chairs sort of transaction that makes us both loosers. Our trust once broken by wars and subterfuge, cannot be easily mended.

    Spiritual

    Man as the image of god should have been able to have perfect trust in another man, for they too are the part of the same image. It is said in the Bible that humans broke the trust that God had in us by taking the bite out of the forbidden fruit. This might be a metaphor for humans loosing trust in their own divine nature.

    When people started living the settled lives of agriculturists, it became possible to have posessions, to put up a value on things that were earlier a part of the nature. It was then that man first started coveting, becoming jealous and hoarding.

    
Our deepest self then began identifying with what we “have” and not what we “are”. Spirituality cannot accomodate the materialistic outlook, that is the need of the body only. The spirit is free and has perfect trust in the plan of God for it. Once, this trust was broken, by going against nature and provisioning for the “bad” days, we also came out of sync with our true nature. We became a clever breed of animals, bent upon our material security and welfare.

    
This trust is yet to be healed. People are slowly realising that the more they posess, the less they have. For once we start aquiring things and making our self bound to those objects, we are no longer the truly liberated soul on a spiritual journey. Yoga is a way to acheive a perspective of disenchantment with the worldly desires and our own bodily desires. ONly by working on the path of selflessness can we then finally achieve our composite self. 

But first, a trust is required in the divine process and the will of God to make it happen. But since, it has been centuries since the trust between man and God had been breached, we would have to make considerable efforts to heal it.

    SELF

    IT is said that the world outside is a mere reflection of our inner world. That what we perceive depends on what we ‘want’ to perceive and not what ‘is’.

    The trust in one’s own self therfore opens boundless avenues for development, for acheiveing one’s dreams and for overcoming obstacles. This trust is built over years, with the smallest tasks where one is able to succeed. If Saina Nehwal is able to confidently smash from back court, it is because she has complete trust in her ability to get there in time and swing her racquet with the requisite speed and angle. 

Even a player as great as her could loose trust in her abilities. It could be because of what someone said or even due to an injury. This is the most potent affliction for any player, for then the player becomes their own enemy, playing lousy shots and not beleiving in the ability to pick up those of the opponent. This self beleif or trust in one’s abilities is equally valid for one’s character.

    
Character is like a giant building, built over years of perserverence, with each brick made of competance and each small structure representing some small acheivement. If a person isn’t truthufll in small matters, what hope is there of buikding a character?

    Similiarly, if a person is not able to acheive the minimum requisite competanc3 in a field, how can he/she be able to acheive wonder that they have been hoping to do?

    This is therefore the core of a persons existence, to have trust in one’s own abilty. For without it we would all lapse in lassitude. To trust our own self requires quite a lot of work. We need to be truthful to our own self, to objectively look at our strenghts and weaknesses and to not deny the problems that we are facing. Easy to say and difficult to implement. 


    Conclusion

    
Trust is the fabric that holds our social/inner/spiritual life together. Violation of this trust, separates us from our own highest potentials, the divinity. A realisation of this ideal would allow us to turn earth into a heaven, for what else is a place filled with perfect angels?

    “Even the gods don’t forgive those who break the Sacred oath of Bread and salt “
    Arya Stark

    These words spoken by a character of the popular TV series Game of Thrones were in the context of her brother getting murdered by a rival house while being under their roof having eaten their bread and salt. The two houses Stark and Frey had been allies for centuries but all it took was a moment to break those ties with a cascade of blood. The long held trust was broken in the most vulgar way possible.

    Trust is an intangible quality , it forms the basis of majority of human interaction. Since the time man found his feet every perspective of his interactions is based upon trust. He trusts that his parents will take care of him from infancy to adulthood, he trusts that if he renders a service he will be fairly compensated for it. In fact the switch from barter to a monetary system was based upon the common trust a currency holds. As civilization progressed the scope of trusts to be placed grew. He trusted his ruler to do the best by him and his tribe, he trusted the systems of that rule to govern him fairly and provide succor in time of need. He trusted that if he did no wrong no wrong will come to him. This trust took years to build , millenniums, but it is a fragile thing , made of gossamer , it takes only a moment to break.

    What happens when it does break ? Well, for one, all our existing notions of right and wrong go out the window. We lose our moral compass. We lose something precious to us and once gone it is near impossible to regain , we become unwilling to ever trust again. All of our years of believing in someone or something is lost and all it takes is a fraction of time.

    We can see such examples all around us. A businessman who built his business and his brand over 20 years , put his and others money into it , built trust into it lost it in a span of a week when he fled the country hounded by his loan collectors. No matter the outcome of the legal proceedings, he has lost that precious commodity that still runs the wheels of business , big or small, trust. He will find it nigh on impossible to find others to ever invest in his dreams again. Or we can take the example of a civil servant who has fulfilled his duties exemplary during the course of his long career. He has been sensitive and forthright, upstanding and decisive ,while discharging his duties. He has built the trust in him amongst the populace and the system piece by piece, painstakingly , devoting years to the cause. Then in a moment of weakness he is caught taking a bribe in a sting operation. The structure of trust collapses. Even actions which were pure are tainted, the breach of trust going back in time to undo all the good that he had done. For to be sure if the civil servant had not built his reputation over the years the backlash would not have been so great. People are hurt more when the seemingly trustworthy betray their trust rather than the ones who were never that trustworthy to start with.

    Such is the power of trust. It takes years to build , seconds to break and once broken it can never easily be regained. There is always a hesitancy to bestow trust on someone who has betrayed it once and is likely to do so again given the chance. The Indian state is built upon the trust that its citizens have on its constitution. They trust that they have certain fundamental rights and trust that the state will never impinge on them and not let them be impinged upon by any other agency. India is a dream all of its citizens share and this dream would be shattered if this trust gets broken. This unfortunately happens more than it should. A pensioner who is made to run from pillar to post for his pension despite being advanced in years, a citizen who just wants the garbage taken out regularly from below his house on time but cannot do so without greasing the palms of the corrupt, the farmer whose crops failed due to the monsoons and, despite having insurance, finding out that his compensation would be nowhere near what he was promised. These incidents turn these people who used to trust their country into cynics who see its every man for himself and the disadvantaged always get more advantage taken of them. They will lose their hope in elections , in democracy and the rule of law. Theirs will be a trust the state would have to go out of its way to rebuild , a trust which it simply could have maintained if it just followed the guidelines laid down in the constitution.

    “Do you trust me ?” is a refrain we often hear in movies when the protagonist asks this of his lover. The answer is invariably yes and this precedes a leap of faith that the lover needs to take to fulfill her love. The reason she says yes is the same reason we all so highly value this delicate notion of trust, we believe that it will not get broken.

    TRUST TAKES YEARS TO BUILD AND SECONDS TO BREAK

    Trust is what you see in the eyes and actions of a small child when he or she smiles with you. That is the pure trust which they place on you considering you their well wisher, without any second thought in their minds.

    Man is a social animal and among all the very basic things needed to survive here in this world, trust is one of the most important one among all. Trust is something you place on others, on yourself so as to connect with the person on spiritual level and have an honest bond with them.

    We trust many people in our lives. Some stay, some betray us. The first and foremost thing we do is to trust our own abilities. That way we gain confidence to conquer every battle that comes in our way. Another thing is when we trust others. They can be our friends, family, business partners, partners at diplomatic levels, in administrative level, at personal level, anything. Even though we put ourselves at risk by trusting someone, we do so as to have a strong bond with them that will cater our need in the dark hours.

    Nevertheless, trusting someone isn’t easy. As we know very well, there is always an element of risk involved; there can be breach of trust very easily and you simply can’t help it in many cases. When we start making friends, we come across several people and choose the worthy among them. It takes time. Series of tests and truths and lies and secrets takes you through the coarse path and then you place your trust on that particular person.

    Similarly, family is something which is relatively closer. Still we do not trust each and every person there even. We place our trust on very few among them and that varies from person to person. When the child is young, he may prefer to choose one among his or her parents. And later in life, with grown up maturity, he may be able to see thorough his or her parent’s acts more clearly and trusts them completely.

    Businesses and diplomatic relations too involves taking risks and placing your trust on uncertain partners. Successful teamwork is built on a foundation of trust. Each member of the team must establish trust; cultivate trust through his actions and words, and work to maintain it. That certainly involves a long gestation period and hence a long time to place your trust on them.

    In diplomatic relations, we have seen countries breaching trust, betrayals and starting all over again. It is the result of mutual trust that India has strong diplomatic, economics and trade ties with Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and many other SE Asian nations.

    But as they say,
    “Trusting someone is like being pregnant. Either you do, or you don’t. There is no in between situation.”

    Trust is important, but it is also dangerous. It is important because it allows us to form relationships with people and to depend on them—for love, for advice, for help—especially when we know that no outside force compels them to give us such things. But trust also involves the risk that people we trust will not pull through for us; for, if there were some guarantee that they would pull through, then we would have no need to trust them. What we risk while trusting is the loss of the things that we entrust to others, including our self-respect, perhaps, which can be shattered by the betrayal of our trust.

    It is fundamental to life. If you cannot trust in anything, life becomes intolerable—a constant battle against paranoia and looming disaster. You can’t have relationships without trust. In the workplace too, trust is essential. An organization without trust will be full of backstabbing, fear and paranoid suspicion.

    Instead of all this factual information we know trust issues are there with everyone. It takes a single lie to break the trust you nurtured through years and through thousand truths. Most of the times its failure on our part to place complete trust; sometimes its our inability to place our trust on the right person which is destined to let us down since the very start.

    Numerous global problems in the world today are there because countries lack mutual trust and hence the cooperation needed. Be it the terrorism, water sharing issues, border disputes, military rule, overthrowing of democratic governments, civil wars, etc. there are trust issues involved. One party isn’t able to place their trust on the other and the other one isn’t doing efforts to gain the same so as to sort out things amicably. India Pakistan issues are perfect example for the same and for that matter India china are no different.

    On personal level, in relationships trust breach is very common. To go deep in to the causes in general, one may clearly find out that it’s very difficult to place your trust on someone in one go. And once it is placed, emotional bonding and even stronger bond develops overtime. Hence when one comes across the slightest possibility of betrayal, it shatters them completely so much so that they find it even more difficult to trust any other person thereafter. It takes second to lose the hard earned faith.

    Besides placing trust on others, we do trust ourselves as well. It is said that trusting yourself is the very first thing you should do in order to trust others and to have self respect. Even if the whole world has faith in you and your abilities but you yourself don’t have it, then you certainly cant achieve anything significant in life for sure. No matter how much others motivate you, you ain’t going to have confidence in yourself.

    So the very first thing for a healthy relationship- be it at personal level, diplomatic level, or in businesses- is to have genuine trust. Communication, sacrifice and mutual respect are few important attributes which we must inculcate and make them as our habit in order to sustain a trusting bond. Lies and secrets have no place in a relationship. They are like the holes in a (relation)ship sailing across the tough waters of life.

    Keep your words, deliver as expected, have faith and mutual understanding, and be fully aware of the realities, strengths and weaknesses of each other. These are some of the best efforts one can do to have a long lasting trusting relationship. Trust is the bedrock of what makes relationships work. When trust goes, what goes with it are safety, security, respect, love and friendship, replaced by anger, insecurity, anxiety, fear. If you need help, get it. If you need a change, then make it. Creating trust is a big deal, so treat it that way. There are many facets and turns in this very delicate and daunting process of trust. If it’s not dealt with properly, then it will torch your relationship until what remains are ashes and regret.

    • InsightsOfficialReview

      Very nice essay Isha, especially how you introduced it. Your essay has very nice flow and continuity. Initial half is really well written, while in later half, several points that you have already mentioned have been repeated, with changed arguments.

      Conclusion could have been made better by providing solutions such as how to enhance trust, and some more dimensions apart from individual level could have been incorporated. (ex – trust between government and citizens, trust on law, judiciary, democracy, peace and tranquillity, secularism etc). Similarly think yourself other dimensions which you could have included.

      Also, let me suggest you some alternate theme like –
      Rahimdas ji said that – ‘Rahiman dhaga prem ka mat todo chatkay, tute se fir na milay, mile ganth pad jaye’ –
      English translation – Rahimdas says that bond of trust should never be broken, because it is like a thread, which if broken can’t be joined, and even if joined, then there is a knot in between’

      • Dearest and respected Insights, I know you people are super busy! But please please please find some time to review my essay 🙂 🙂 you guys do so much for us and it is too much to ask for, but still need to know how you rate my write up! Waiting for your feedback 🙂 🙂 THANK YOU 🙂

    • Iconoclast

      Thanks Isha, for the review.
      Yours was the first one I read, but it was already reviewed by Insights and others, so did not comment on it. I liked your example of “Trusting someone is like being pregnant. Either you do, or you don’t. There is no in between situation.” —- It establishes irreversibility of act…
      And what I always like about your essays is you could talk effortlessly about about philosophical parts without going into irrelevant. GS.
      KWAR.

      • Isha

        Thanks Iconclast. Too much philosophy in my essays, i know 😛
        Bt we should try to maintain a balance between the both. I need to learn it.

    • Akhil

      Really nice essay isha. Good flow, multidimensional one.
      Only thing I would say.. Yar bahut hi philosophical hai.. You know philosophy jab jyada ho jati hai to essay monotonous lagne lagta hai.. Isliye thoda beech me masala bhi dal diya karo.. (personal opinion)
      -I think you should have included other dimension that is opposite to the given theme.
      Conclusion could be improved.
      Other than this I don’t think there is any problem.
      Keep writing my friend.
      And thanks for reviewing mine also. I’ll work on your suggestions.
      Thank you.

      • Isha

        Points duly noted Akhil. You are right. Will try to take care of it next time se 🙂

    • Mrinal Mukherjee

      Dear Isha ,
      I was in awe with your flow …Seamless is the word !! Keep it up. Coming to critical analysis part –

      –I felt the starting was slightly abrupt.You can start like – Trust is something which is the most difficult to earn and the easiest to lose.It is one of those soft skills which is never taught but acquired.Trust is what you see in the eyes….
      –2nd paragraph – “…yourself so as to connect with the person on both emotional and spiritual level …
      –3rd paragraph : Cater our need in dark ours ? is it always true ? Take it in this way …Does A mother trust her child just because he/she would cater to her needs in ‘dark hours’
      –7th para – In diplomatic relationships , give examples like the failures of Panchsheel with China(1962 war) or the Shimla Agreement with Pak etc(several ceasefire violations)
      –10th para second line conveys the same meaning as the first line of the 9th para
      –Second last para ” Lies and Secrets have no place in a relationship ” Are you sure ? What about white lies ? I read in our essay on honesty earlier this month where you supported white lies in order to maintain a relationship ( the example where someone close to you cooks food not upto your liking but you still praise her considering her feelings and emotions..Yaad aya ? ) Coming to secrets , It really depends.Consider this –
      Assume your best friend who trusts you from the core of her heart has confided a lot many secrets with you.In this case , it is your ability to keep secrets that has maintained the relationship
      –You can also add a line or two on how can you maintain this trust ?
      –You could have added more dimensions by taking contemporary examples like The Maggi case , The Maria Sharapova case (drugs wala), the Volkswagen emission scandal etc

      Pls review mine too ! 🙂

      • Isha

        Thanks a lot for the review Mrinal, so detailed 🙂
        1, 2- Agree, i too felt the same.
        3. Dark hours in the sense when there is no one around, you can certainly lean upon the person you trust. Mother/ parents do the same. They do have expectations that in future, when they will no longer be able to look after themselves, their children would support them. They trust them. Similarly, they place their trust upon you and give you freedom to study whatever you want, do job wherever you want- so that you can understand them when they actually need you. Their are expectations involved everywhere in practical life.
        4, 5- Agree.
        6. Lies and secrets- here i mean ki literally lies- that you are hiding something substantial which your partner (whatever in personal/business/diplomatic level) has right to know about. White lies are spoken in order not to hurt the feelings.
        7,8- Agree- mine was not multidimensional 😐
        Thanks again. Going to review yours 🙂

    • Tanu Singhal

      Critical hona best hai, and when I accept your criticism ican grow 😉

      Coming to your essay.

      I found yoiurs the most fundamental and appropriate.
      Starting , well done.
      Extension quite justified.
      Structure way better.

      One problem- explanations zyada ho gai, family wala example rare cases me hota hai..
      Plus family wale case me love and affection dies affect our decision making efficiency, and rarely do we actually choose to trust or not, by default krte hi hain.

      Content bhot zyada ho gya, crisp KR thoda.

      Overall – found it the most justified to statement.
      Keep writing 😉

      • Isha

        Thanks for the appreciation ladki 😉
        Aaj to tareef hi tareef mil rahi tujhse 😛

        koi nahi. We ll keep writing and improve overtime.

        • Tanu Singhal

          Hey, sorry for being late. But my thoughts.

          1. The story.! Why we need to start with a story when akreday there is a quote, you have a great opportunity to start with that quotes gist.
          2. U wasted one whole page on the story. Which is soo known, but it is rather reaktee to foul cry, and goodwill, while trust is more of personal.
          3. U suddenly switched from story to father to corporates to human to nations to UN…. Bring the link,
          4. The examples, simply great, nut not exploited properly.

          I think we all get into the flow, and get deflected from the structure.
          Work on that.

          Conclusion was not so strong, the quote was.
          Keep writing.
          See you next week.

          • Iconoclast

            Thanks Tanu for the review,
            I understand the story is cliche, but to my surprise nobody here did use it.. Other points are taken.. will improve from next one…
            KWAR

            • Tanu Singhal

              No one didn’t, because I guess it. Was not a perfect fit.

    • Namrata

      hey iconoclast.. very good essay with very diverse examples .. flow was good indeed but i guess the essay gave the central theme a miss .. like diverse examples of trust was there .. and likewise for breach of trust and all .. but the linkage with the topic seemed missing .. and this i have noted in most essays today .. focus on “years to build; seconds to break” seemed not so clear .. u have great examples which if linked better can reflect a well-rounded essay .. otherwise overall = really a worthy read 🙂

      • Iconoclast

        Thanks Namrata for kind words. I have your points, will improve in the next one

    • Isha

      Hey Icon, my views-
      1. Intro- good, but too long. Make it short.
      2. Uske in the second page- examples were good
      3. 3rd page me second para- u can cut it short a bit. Make it crisp.Jyada stretched ho gaya business view points tumhare essay me.
      4. Conclusion should not begin with ” finally to conclude”- it should go with the flow. It should establish a connection with the main content and reflect the summary f your ideas.
      If you want to give solution, then provide it before the conclusion itself. That’s a separate thing.
      Overall, it was a nice read. But you need to work on structure, flow and connectivity.
      Rest you will catch soon. ATB.
      If you find time, have a look at mine as well. Thanks 🙂

  • Akhil

    Ram and shyam two very close friend spend their childhood together, school and college together. Both have full faith on each other. One day they were going through a jungle and suddenly wild bear appeared before them . ram knew climbing tree and immediately climbed one leaving shyam behind, despite knowing that shyam could not climb tree. Shyam saved his life from bear using his intelligence. But this incidence broke friendship of two freinds. Years of trust which has sustained the friendship was broken in second due to selfish behaviour of ram.

    ‘trust’. This five letter word has immense power with it. It is like DNA of all the relationship. Just like human body survive because of healthy functioning of DNA, human relationship also survive due to proper functioning of trust. It is very root which keeps tree of relation evergreen if it remains in good condition.

    Man undergoes myriads of relationship since his arrival in this world. Some relations he gets by virtue of his birth in particular family like father, brother etc and some relations he makes by using his own instincts like friends . but one thing which is founding principle of all these relations and ensure their well functioning is trust,which keeps humanity alive.

    However, this word trust is easier to invoke on papers, in real life it in an uphill task to win someone’s trust . several year bypass in winning someone’s trust. But why it is so difficult to build bond of trust? The answer lies in the fact that people do not easily believe in something easily. Fear of insecurity, hostility, fraud and other such negative thoughts prevent person. Attitude and thoughts of persons also important factor in this regard.

    Breaking of all these barriers does not happen suddenly it takes time may be several days, months or year. When these are broken and people starts interacting with each other ladder of trust goes on increasing day by day . this is true in all kind of relationship man undergoes weather it is of friendship or marriage or international relations.

    Now once trust is achieved that is once person earns tag of trustworthiness he only catches the path of progress. Whatever he will do people will have trust in him some even follow him blindly. Eg yudhishtir has won the trust of people as being the ‘truthful man’ under any circumstances hence when he ratified that aswathama died in battle field to Guru Drona, latter immediately putting his weapons down and embraced death.

    Not only at individual level trust has relevance at economic, national and international level. Multinational companies spend millions of dollars to earn the trust of customer. similarly government takes every possible efforts to keep trust of voters intact in their government. Same holds true in international context.

    But, question arises, why such a complex subject like trust which takes years to be build breaks second just like one in above mentioned story of ram and shyam.the most possible answer could be weak bonding of that trust. Now this weakness could be due to dishonesty on part of one of the party. The very fine example this in this context can be of famous Maggi nodules issue. More than twenty year company took to find market and earn trust for it’s brand. But all these trust and passion for Maggi collapsed just in few days when it’s product was declared unfit for consumption by FSSAI.

    Maggie’s market eroded because it cheated it’s customers, who blindly believed in its quality. This means honesty and transparency are also important to keep the trust of people enact in you. Love is another important factor for survival of trust specially in personal relationship. Both trust and love are like two wheels of life. Defect in any one may disturb the effectiveness of other.

    At national level also specialy in democracy it is the faith and trust of people in their government which helps them to function properly. If this delicate bond of trust is broken it becomes almost impossible for any government to survive. Syria and Brazil are two live example, where government have lost the trust of their citizen and now struggling.

    Similer ground holds true in international context. Modern day globalisation, multilateral trade and several trade and defence treaties are surviving due to one factor ‘trust’. Decades of time are taken to win trust of various governments, citizens and organization to finalize these kind of trust. And if this essential elements is not there treaties and trade can not happen.

    But, leakes like ‘Panama paper leak’ erodes the trust of people in global companies and governments in moment, when they come to know the corruption and cheating done by trusted companies and governments on whom they believe quite confidently for years. Trust is broken because of insensitivity and immoral behaviour shown by these authorities.

    Thus it can be said that thread of trust is very delicate and it should be protected to maximum extent possible by both parties. But, there is another side of trust as well which takes comparatively lesser time to be build and more time to break. Eg. Self-styled godmans in India. People specially poor and illiterate believes easily in these people and their fake magical powers. Even when they are exposed every one not easily breach their trust in him. Large number of people follow them even after. Saint Asaram is fine example of it.

    Similar to above mentioned exception their is one more exception. This is relations between devotee and God. This trust between god and devotee do take some time to build, but almost becomes impossible to erode trust and faith of devotees in their God howsoever adverse conditions may confront them. Be it tragedy of kedarnath dham or recent puttingal devi temple fire incident.this trust is not broken because pepole have faith in power of their deities. Similar such relation exist between parents and their children specially mother and her child.

    Menace of castism and Communalism are another exception. People in India have strong trust in caste system which has developed through ages. But this trust is not easily going away from our country despite people know the negative empact castism has on our society. Thus some trust are so firm that they do not break easily even when it has adverse impact on them. Here trust becomes rigid and inflexible.

    Thus trust is essential for smoother functioning of human life. It is essential to earn reputation and respect . But it should be kept enact under all circumstances as it is very sensitive and vulnerable to negativities like dishonesty, nontransperancy etc which may leads to its erosion and subsequent collapse of relationship

        Thank you brother for review.
        Yar ye conclusion aate aate mera mind saturate ho jata hai.. Hamesha is front pe kuch issue rah jata hai..
        I have to work on it..
        Flow me there is some hiccups in between, will keep in mind..

        I’ll review yours today only just give me some time.

    • Isha

      Hi Akhil,
      I must say this is the best essay so far I have read. Near Perfect. Flow was very nice. Multidimensional, full of examples.
      Just a minor glitches here and there. Like-

      1. Just like human body survive because of healthy functioning of DNA- DNA is the base for transfer of characteristics genetically, that’s it. Healthy functioning of DNA? not clear..
      2. This is relations between devotee and God. This trust between god and
      devotee do take some time to build, but almost becomes impossible to
      erode trust and faith- I am not totally satisfied with this.
      3. Same holds true in international context- you can provide some examples
      Rest is good. Keep writing and inspiring.
      If you find time, read mine as well. Thanks 🙂

      • Akhil

        Hi isha would like to answer your doubts.
        Proper DNA functioning is indeed important cause they are essential for protein synthesis.. Mutation of DNA leads to cancer.
        -devotee god wala issue u r correct kuch jyada hi bhavanao me bah gaya..
        But,for some people it is really like indestructible trust.
        -international wala iwas thinking to include China India issue per likha nahi..

        Anyway thanks my dear friend for such inspiring review.

    • minaxi

      Hello Akhil…
      Very good essay with flow as well quality.
      Only thing I can point out – second para- it is five letters of trust.

      Thanks.. If possible plz review mine.

      • Akhil

      Hi Akhil,

      1. Great essay, you explored quite many dimensions: personal, corporate, International…
      2. Liked how molded ‘bear story’ for the essay
      3. Maggi example is controversial, I would avoid it
      4. Also as insights have advised, we could give suggestions to improve trust like adopting, openness, reciprocity, etc.

      Pls review mine when you get time

    • Ankit

      Bhai here I come 😛

      Trust me 4 ni 5 letter hain 😛 aise blunder ni karna evaluator loot lega apke marks 😛
      DNA point really good 🙂

      Bhai Dronacharya wala example is good but it is an example of breach of trust and apne use progress wale para me include kardiya. It should be highlighted as a negative aspect.

      A very nice essay 🙂 Touched several dimensions 🙂

      • Akhil

        Bhai thanks for review.
        Four I wrote by mistek, corrected.
        Dronacharya wala example your dimension is correct.. But it also highlights faith Drona had in yudhishtir he even not thought to think on it twice..
        I’ll review yours shortly.

    “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”
    ”Trust” a five letters word which indicate the positive perception of individual toward another individual and organisation provide the basis of existence of every human being and it’s related institution. Imagine a world without trust, Can human being survive without trust, can he enter into a restaurant and order a meal baked by an stranger, can he ever respect and enjoy the relationships of son, brother, friend, student, employee, employer etc.

    Trust is center of every human existence, human learn as an infant, he trust his parents that they are the most caring people for him, later on his sphere of trust increases with time, he interact with society and learn from them made friends. People trust educational institution for better education, business for better projects and governments for better services.
    Human trust very easily, it is not hard to trust any person, whom he think is a good person, but to maintain this trust is very difficult for trustee as well trusted person. And to break the trust is easiest thing for anyone.

    A person can trust his person that he will take care of his assets, which he has left in his friend’s custody like some money. But that friend uses that money for personal purpose without asking owner’s permission. DO the person can ever believe his friend without any trace of skepticism or doubt. No, trust is the value, if once lost, is hard to retrieve.

    What is need of Trust? Noone can live in soleditory, every person is interlinked and dependent on each other directly or indirectly. The element of trust create a environment of stability, and person know, what he can expect from another person and entity. When person buy a product of particular company to whom he trust he know, product is according to his demand of taste and quality. Trust also matters in government on which sustainability of government and performance of it’s policy depend. If public trust it’s government, Govt can implement it’s policy in effective and efficient way.

    For an example, if government want to improve the gender equity and education status of citizens, it have to bring policies like Beti Bachao Beti Padao sachems, But it have to develop trust among public that these scheme and program is for their betterment.

    Like the trust creates the favorable situation for human development, beaching of trust creates the situation of skepticism and distrust.There are many examples in every sphere when trust was developed gradual with efforts, yet a single action broke it and it seems that it will take forever to repair.

    One of these example is Sino-India relationship, when in 20th century both countries who shares colonial history were developing their relationship, India backed China for permanent seat in United nation Security council and China helped India at time of famine, Yet invasion of India by Chinese left wounds which are yet to heal. At present, a single activity at border creates speculations and apprehensions.

    Similarly in cases of betrays by businesses and individuals left people shocked and most of time helpless.either it is cases of Panama Paper leaks or Volkswagen emission case, In both cases, Individuals and business institutions betrayed governments as well public. Breaking of trust leads to a situation of trust deficit Which is not a sustainable condition.

    why some one break the trust? it may be accidental, since many times, the person who trust keep over exception from trusted person and at any point such expectation are bound to fall. If, a boss expected that his highly successful employee can achieve a unrealistic target in slow market conditions. what choice the employee have other than break the established trust or make the employer realize about reality.

    Trust are broke because of ignorance and selfishness too. when a person do not now that other person relay on him for some particular reason, the chances of breaking trust increases. But the selfishness is the biggest reason of breaking the trust either it is in personal sphere or at international fronts.

    What is way ahead if some one break the trust? It may be said that if once broke, trust is almost irrecoverable, But should human not be given a chance to rectify his mistake and forgiveness is one of the way, However, it is not easy to repair trust but forgiveness may be a right approach in this right direction now the person who trust will be more cautious in developing his trust in anyone.

    Trust is an attitude, which must be applied with caution, it will not be wrong to say, when we trust someone, we gave him authority to betray too. As well as trust must be base on reasons and rationality so that chances of being betrayed can be narrowed down.

    Plz review..

    • Ganga kinare wala

      very smooth write up, the start was simple and blooming of optimism, however the problem is that you have completely missed the second part, “SECONDS TO BREAK” is missing, rest a very impressive style of writing. Kindly review mine, thanks 🙂

        Thanks You Sir.. will review shortly.

    • Hello Minaxiji 🙂
      Imagine a world without trust. it would be rust 🙂
      shuru me you have defined trust part well.
      You’re the only one till now jisne Sino-India relationship likha hai, which is the appropriate term 🙂
      What i like the most is why some one break the trust! you have defined this part very well.
      Ma’am conclusion is not so strong. Can be improved.
      Aapka flow acha hai beech me. kahi kahi jump h but. different type se aapne define karne ki try ki hai har cheez ko, found it good. But beech me 1-2 example deke aap fir philosophy par aa gye. Exmples side by side connect kar skte the aur b!
      You may ignore this review if you do not agree.

    • Affu

      very good flow minaxi but some points
      u defined trust as positive perception but dear feelings like,love,affection also invoke positive perception so be specific in the quality like relaibility,faith etc
      essay topic says taht trsut takes years to build,u say it is easy to trust,if u want to contradict,khul ke bol na..he he
      govt point was good but examples can be displacement,development projects
      can add point like why as humanbeings we take much time to trust while many times a single incident results in break of trust,just explore that angle
      Keep writing:-)

      • minaxi

    • Ankit

      Minaxi ji the essay has everything in it 🙂

      But but but…. I found the flow missing. I felt she has everything in the essay..a lot of dimensions to it..but still there was certain abruptness about it.(Maybe I couldn’t comprehend it as I should have too tired after the day’s study -_-)

      It has a lot of content to it for sure :)….I’d say find a brilliant opening for the essay to leave an impression on the reader. Well begin is half done I feel. So a good first impression on the reader can fetch you more marks 🙂

      • minaxi

        No You are right Ankit.. I am not good in Philosophy..Just completed this essay.

        • Ankit

          Lolz ap meri hi sister hain 😛 even I get lost in such topics 😛
          Though last time se improvement hai mujhme 😀

          • minaxi

            Haa bhot progress he.. 🙂 Bas ab dobara mat kehna.. 😀

            • Ankit

              Aji hum to kahenge…hum apni progress se khush bhi na ho… I DON’T LIKE IT 😛

              • minaxi

                😀 Congrats… it was indeed a progress.

                • Ankit

                  Hahaha thank you 🙂
                  People like you motivate me to improve 🙂

    • Hey Minaxi. This was really a nice write up. The only critic I have is I ur philo and examples should be inclusive, not like one para dedicated to philo and the next to example.

      The example used are perfect. even I was going to use Volkswagen, but breached the word limit so didn’t use it.

      The conclusion wants something more so u could improve on that part.

      Overall, I liked that.

      Can u please review my essay?

      https://nitishsinghi86.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/trust-takes-years-to-build-but-seconds-to-break/

      Thanks already 🙂

      • minaxi

        Thank You Sir for review..
        I will review shortly. 🙂

        • No sir please. Will be obliged if u do. Thank u 🙂

          • minaxi

            Done.. Mr. Serious. 🙂

    • Aravind Varier

      Dear minaxi ,

      1) ” ‘Trust” a five letters word which indicate the positive perception…… this paragraph is excellent 🙂

      2) In the second paragraph …… Human trust very easily, it is not hard to trust any person, ???? you could have avoided such a sentence because when the statement of the essay itself is trying to tell that it takes years to build the trust but you straightway telling that it is easy to trust to any person .

      And to break the trust is easiest thing for anyone.?????? i agree you are writing this sentence based on the second part of the statement of the essay . but make sure you make such statements by supporting your argument with an appropriate example .

      3) A person can trust his person that he will take care of his assets,…….. this paragraph is good but you can make it better by working on the presentation of the ideas in a simplified manner .

      4) What is need of Trust? …. this paragraph is good 🙂

      5) please do not write ” for example” in an essay because you can use an example itself to bring out the context of the essay.

      6) In Beti Bachao Beti Padao sachems, you have mentioned that TRUST among public is required to make it success but your point on the ” beaching of trust creates the situation of skepticism and distrust ” is NOT EXPLAINED PROPERLY .

      You should clearly tell who is breaching the trust and i did not see any argument in the essay to support the distrust point for the beti bachao beti padao scheme .

      7) China helped India at time of famine, ???? you could have mentioned the famine which china helped India to convince the examiner .

      8) I agree to your example related to Volkswagen and panama papers leak but you have limited by telling that they broke the trust . it is very important to note that you should clearly tell how did Volkswagen and the businessman who build trust among the people and government through a long period and it was lost all of a sudden by the accusations and allegations on them . this will help you to bring the context of the essay and correctly correlate with the example .

      9) why some one break the trust? this point is good but you should always try to write this point by linking the with the first part of the statement of the essay .

      10) Trust are broke because of ignorance and selfishness too….. ” this paragraph is good but will suggest some methods to improve the same .

      11) What is way ahead if some one break the trust? this paragraph is good .

      12) In the conclusion , you are contradicting yourself by considering trust as a value as well as an attitude ?????

      No, trust is the value, if once lost, is hard to retrieve???? VALUE ??? last line in the third paragraph AND in the conclusion Trust is an attitude, which must be applied with caution,?????? ATTITUDE ???? PLEASE BE CLEAR !!!

      MY SUGGESTIONS :

      1) you have got the idea but unable to present it properly by synchronizing with the context of the essay . try to understand the quote and frame simple examples and try to connect with the context .

      the drawback that i find in this essay is that , you are using one set of examples for explaining on how it takes to build trust for a long time and another set of examples to explain how trust is broken fast .

      you can use different examples for the first part and the second part of the statement but you would find it difficult to connect and that leads to lack of flow in the essay .

      So , try to use a single example and try to bring out the first part of the statement as well as the second part of the statement which help you support the statement and also helps you to build flow while moving towards to the other paragraph .

      2) Whenever you start writing this essay make sure you have clearly pick out the examples that you are going to use in this essay to bring out the different dimensions from various fields .

      In my opinion , 4 to 5 examples would be enough rather giving too many examples which will spoil the beauty of the essay .

      3) If the question of the statement of the essay for example today’s quote says “Trust take years to Build, Seconds to Break”

      try to pose questions by analyzing the quote

      PART 1 :“Trust take years to Build” – questions that be framed contradicting it

      question : Does trust always takes a lot of time to be build ( search for examples immediately were you can find trust is build quickly )

      PART 2 : ” Seconds to Break” – questions that be framed contradicting it

      question : Is it always easy to break a trust .try to look for example were you can say trust cannot be breached easily 🙂

      LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR 🙂

      CASE 1 : If trust is build SLOWLY , but it break SLOWLY

      CASE 2 : If trust is build SLOWLY , but it break FAST . ( Today’s Topic )

      CASE 3 : if trust is build FAST , but it break SLOWLY .

      CASE 4 : if trust is build FAST ,but it break FAST .

      though today’s essay is dealing with CASE 2 as cited above but, if a candidate is able to think more on the statement itself in different ways and frame appropriate examples in mind, then it will be helpful to write on both the aspects of the statement of the essay and helps to write a better conclusion which be similar to the FAIR JUDGEMENT we have on the essay .

      ALL THE BEST MY DEAR FRIEND !!!

      • G.

        hello arvind
        what a great review… i always consider you as a investigator not a reviewer, you just tear open every answer. specially your ethics ones.

        i could not find your essay, but please help me by reviewing mine. its somewhere down here. or alternatively here is the link of the blog
        https://karankre.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/trust-takes-years-to-build-and-seconds-to-break/
        thanks and keep reviewing i learn a lot from them
        cheers !

      • minaxi

        Thank You Aravind.. and I am sorry that i can upvote a comment only once.:D
        Well, I agree, that ideas are not problem with me, problem is coherency and
        synchronization. I wanted to make every thing clear, But then to switch from one point to another become trouble.
        One more thing,,, Once i read in Insight review that, it is necessary to prove the given quota exactly. You can mention other aspects too. So by looking this prospective, it will be good to write two or three lines about CASE 1 too? Or I must leave it.
        Thanks Friend.. I do not feel easy with philosophical things, But Your review will help me lot. Thanks again:)

        • Aravind Varier

          Dear minaxi ,

          The suggestions pointed by me in the review of your essay is actually an indicator to help you improve your essay writing .

          try to read my suggestion carefully , because i have tried to simply it as far as possible to help you understand .

          I suggested the 4 CASES to help you analyze the statement in varied angles which will help you write the essay in different points of view , which is also suggested by InsightOfficialReview 🙂

          Keep writing essay every Sunday and that will surely improve 🙂 🙂 🙂

          To tell you Honestly , The essay that you wrote yesterday is far batter than the previous essay that you wrote last Sunday ” Honesty is the Best Policy ” 🙂

          It is a sure sign that , you are improving 🙂

          ALL THE BEST MY DEAR FRIEND !!!

          • minaxi

            Thanks Aravind.. You are a credible reviewer so I will trust you and believe it is an improvement, Since i thought to skip writing essays after seeing topic.
            I will read your review again with peaceful mind at rest time.
            Thanks Friend.. 🙂

    • Himaanshu

      – Well attempted. Few concerns :-

      1- You missed a very important aspect i.e ‘self trust’. Trusting yourself is the most important thing and betraying yourself is the most destructive mistake/sin whatever you may call it. I guess one para could have been written on this.

      2- Sometimes I felt that you are confusing trust with expectations. Like in that employer employee wala example I think it was more related to expectations than trust. When expectations get firm base than it becomes trust. In the given example boss is expecting outstanding result from the employee despite slow market. In this case if employee don’t get the desired result it is expectation that did not get fulfilled I don’t see a matter of trust here. And, if it is trust it is totally a fault of employer because his expectation has a loose base to be called as ‘trust’.

      3- Some historical examples could have been mentioned to expand the dimensions of the write up. For example – how trust and betray changed the destiny of our country or of the world for that matter. In Indian case incidents like betray from Mir Jafar in 1757 battle of plassey changed the course of Indian history. Ya fir how the strong trust relationship between hindus and muslims during khilafat movement and NCM shook the mighty british empire.

      – I find the write up very good. You covered various aspect but all the aspects are sharing similar taste. Mutlub k daal toh achhi bnni hai bus tadka thk se nahi lga… haha

      Keep writing…. All the best 🙂

      • Akhil

        Hi brother review mine also if time permits. Thank you.
        Have you written I’ll review urs

      • minaxi

        Hello Himanshu..
        I had self trust in mind.. But problem o synchronize points compelled me escape it. Though Now i think, I must have included it, yet switching over is a though task for me in philosophical essays.

        No- expectations are part of trust, Even my boss will not keep me in his team if, he will not trust me. However, trust is wider term.

        Historical – 😀 It is good thing, But I am on square terms with history. Jarurat ke time kbi bhi dimag me nahi aati. 🙂

        I will write a better essays .. And Hope to read your’s too.
        Thanks…

      hello minaxi

      it was a short essay, you could have improved it more on having content and giving a good build up.
      flow was good in some parts but i would have liked a better connection between paras.
      introduction can be improved. i also suffer from the same deficiency 😛
      you could have ended the essay in a motivating form, it makes it more complete. but anyways it was good.

      please find some time to review my essay, it is somewhere down here. or the alternate link is

      cheers

    • Nupur

      Hey minaxi. sorry for being late.
      my observations are:
      1: Intro is very nice and catchy and complete but why you have changed a para for the same thing described in it as in first para. as yo change para something new is expected.
      3: As it is diverse topic you must also address that trust breaching for honest purposes and for utilitarianism purpose can be good sometime. For ex. Hitler trusted his soldier for the purpose of Holocaust but the soldiers would have been ethical in breaching the trust.
      4: How trust can further be developed in society to make a ram rajya. Moral education and family values and role of social attitude in trust building can also be mentioned.

      Today i liked the flow in your essay. Intro excited me a lot but when i started loosing some grip than the Breaching of trust part followed by example was again good. and finally a conclusion which was very needed made your essay a good one. so overall a very good essay dear. Well done 🙂

      • minaxi

        Thanks Dear… And I did not thought about these dimensions.
        Going to review your for some refreshment.. 🙂

    • Akhil

      Hello minaxi, nice essay.
      Intro is very nice. Flow is good and you included personal, national and international aspects quite nicely.
      However, when you say it’s very easy to trust someone, this line contradicts line of given essay. Please avoid it (IMO)
      -Some dimensions like where trust is not broken easily could have been included.
      -I do not agree with your second last para, remember Rahim doha.. Rahman dhaga prem ka..
      -overall it was good read for me.
      Keep up the good work friend.

      • minaxi

        Thanks Akhil.. I will review my essay by keeping all relevant points in mind friend.
        Thanks You again friend. Keep writing and reviewing. 🙂

    • hey minaxi
      very good essay.. many things in common 😛
      I wrote somewhat similar to yours
      I would suggest you to improve on conclusion.. and add more depth to your dimensions.. little more elaboration and philosophy
      overall interesting read
      have a look at my essay too if you find time..i wrote it very late :/

    Trust takes years to build, seconds to break

    The structural framework of individual behavior and societal relations hinges upon the nuances of both- the cognitive and behavioral trust. Trust indeed, is the sine qua non for the sustenance of relations, be it personal or social. Instances of hiatus in individual and societal relations have been observed at present and in the past, owing to the breach of trust.

    At present, we face the challenge of ethical erosion, particularly in the arena of economic integration. Dilution of – trust, upon which a consortium of Indian banks lent out a huge sum of Rs 9000 Cr to an industrialist absconding abroad, is most relevant in this context. Likewise a leading German car-making company, by hiding its emission norms, broke the trust of sundries. Also, we notice the phenomena of siphoning-off the taxable wealth to safe tax-heavens by putting at stake the trust of the nation and its citizenry. All these instances indicate at the ephemeral life-cycle of the delicate trust – once broke, all lost.

    Indeed, it takes years rather decades to build trust, involving the virtues of truth, honesty, discipline, dedication and most importantly the quality service. We have seen Indian industrialists like Jamnalal Bajaj, Ambalal Sarabhai, Jamshedji Tata, P.C. Roy etc. building trust with the people through time-tasted cooperation and collaboration. Their nexus with the political class, especially the Indian National Congress through financial support and philanthropy rendered the built-up trust more concrete. The same trust was being built-up under the leadership of Gandhiji, which later culminated into a mass-movement to expel the colonial powers from India. Beneath the mass movement, was the inter- caste, region, and religious trust while keeping in abeyance narrow hostilities. We have witnessed a successful national struggle based on the notion of trust wherein no scope left for the breach of the same.

    Thereafter, numerous cooperative movements in the form of AMUL, Vijaya, Sudha etc. practiced the simple but subtle principle of trust. A leader, as always required for a movement, emerged in the form of Verghese Kurien, who taught the common villagers of Anand District the very first chapter of building trust based relationship. Similarly, the 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendment of Indian Constitution cherishes & celebrates the same notion of trust which transpired through the freedom struggle. Indeed, the Panchayati Raj Institutions like Gram-sabha, evolved through centuries in India, only upon the structural frame of societal trust.

    Presently we see Gram-sabha, doing social audit of various Governmental schemes like MGNREGS, is just the ‘examination of expected trust’ from the Govt & administration. Very often these Institutions pass the audit parameters but instances of breach of trust, though disheartening, has also been noticed. Such leakages & pilferages tend to dissolve the built up trust duly routed in common heritage of the freedom struggle.

    In the similar vein, the Parliamentary democracy adopted after Independence hinges on the concept of societal trust. Owing to this concept of integral trust our democracy has passed successfully the insurmountable challenge of emergency. World over, discussions were in the air that Indian democracy will meet with a peaceful demise. However, what transpired thence was sophisticated & evolved form of coalition Politics, which still evolves.The persistence & evolution of democratic set up in India unlike its neighbourhood, is embedded in the unconditional trust of the citizenry into the system.

    However, numerous scams from time to time as pointed out by CAG & Judiciary tend to break the peoples’ trust. We consequently have witnessed a ruling political party being dethroned in next elections & even counting members to be a main opposition party. Thus, trust once broke erases all positive impacts & attributes of the past. Hence, governments now find it imperative to build trust with the masses through governance & developmental agenda.

    Likewise, Industries & Corporates endeavor to build-up trust not only with their stakeholders, by their due representation in the decision making but also with society at large through CSR. We observe villages being adopted by the firms for their holistic development & hence building the trust. Also, the corporate ethics mandates for bringing transparency & maintaining trust with the customer. The popular culture of building & managing a “Brand”, indeed is an attempt to build the trust. Now, building trust via brand is expedient for the sustenance of the business.

    In the same fashion, administrative ethics via integrity, dedication & devotion to duty aims to build trust between the Bureaucracy & masses. Several recent initiatives like E-Governance, Good Governance, Re-inventing Governance etc strive to build & sustain the relationship of trust. These, initiatives have opened up the governance process. Peoples’ participation has increased through RTI & Citizen charter & hence they try to present the service oriented outlook of the administration.

    Nonetheless, at the bilateral & multilateral fora that endeavors to build trust have got due importance. India, in line with its Panchasheel Principles, tries to build trust even with its enemy nations. The recent short visit of Indian PM to attend the personal invitation of the Pakistani PM has been treated as a confidence-building measure. Similarly, the role G-20 played to averse the affects of the global financial crisis is another example of collaborative exercise based on trust.

    Thus, it is contingent upon the persona, economy, polity, society & the global order to build & sustain trust. It is only the trust which can reduce the complexity of the lifecycle & make it simpler. This trust building process is required to pass through various spatial & temporal stages. All such practices which may affect the built up trust, is required to be renounced to make an evergreen climate of sustained trust.

    • Eco-friendly

      Wonderful essay. You have built on Ethics i.e. GS-4. Great bhai.

      All is well. However you can add-
      why breach of trust and its effects. Rest you have incorporated well
      All the best.

    Recently Global mobile manufacturing compay Apple denied to Federal investigation Agency of America to decrypt it’s one of the Apple phone which alledgely used in a terror activity what Apple company cited reason proves the very topic of essay it cited that the company can’t break the trust of consumer as this mere incidence was able to deteriote the trust between company and it’s a global swathe of

    So trust is a social capital to be required for healthy relationship among stakeholders and is culmination of eforts of long time which testwater of good and bad time of past and out of which bloom is the trust.

    At individual level trust brings the feeling of security in the mind of individual and trust is the piller of a healthy society it is the trust of followers which whichmake a leader called so.

    But to trust is not a spontaneous and instantaneous but it also took time to build and fragile enough that it can break in seconds for example the Panama leaks rendered many fans of leaders politician celebrities heart broken, this very single incident break the trust of citizen in our leaders and also institutional capabilty to curb such types of tax hedging across the globe.

    Fall of Bastile in France in 1789was a result of break of Trust between monarchial system and people .Today the democracy is considered as best form of government is it depends on trust between citizen and their representative they vote for , those on whom they trust but this trust of people in democracy with long time while testing democracy.

    In our country, the university calles JNU, is among the most renowed university in the world took years to develop and was emergrd epitome of tolerance, diversity and the centre of intellectual learning that we can call it Mini India but a single incident took place recently where some students organised event to mark the anniversary of a terrorist Afzal Guru degraded name of university in the eyes of general public who gave tax to run such universities but what they got broke them.

    During mediaeval time Hindu Muslim live the life in harmony whoever was the ruler treated their subject alike and there was the thread of Trust between Hindu and Muslim but this long relationship of trust between these two communities given a setback to this trust in a very short span of time which we still are facing this mutual distrust divide our land in two parts.

    Trust towards a community if break is also led spillover of effect on individuals belong to these community it is a matter of the fact while community should not be blame as all individuals are not alike

    At Household level level it is trust which binds the husband wife relation. This relation of duo is not like blood relation and it’s depend only and only mutual trust between them but a single event can shatter it within secondsbuild over a period of time.

    Trust is also the link between Judiciary system and citizens of a country .it is the trust in Indian justice system. A man approach court and also accept its decision due to trust that hold in jury. what if this trust break?

    Trust as an important role in religion and for that matter trust is another name of religion. people saying don’t question on religion or ritual just trust on it this type of Trust is also orthodoxical but if we look on other site this trust give people psychological strengths like I will not do unscrupulous as god is watching me.

    In our case of India Although we now are emerging on global platform but Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and the policy of non alignment many country joined us why we were not super power countries? It was their trust in our principles and values. so, we have to preserve these valuse at any cost as rahim ji said “rahiman dhaga prem ka,mat todo chatkay

    tute se fir na jude jude ganth par jaye “

    Let insert trust in place of “prem”

    • Iconoclast

      1. Started good with Apple example but I felt flow was lost Midway…
      2. also the philosophical part is missing.. 4. Dimension about why it gets broken need more duscussion
      5. Also I felt conclusion was bit abrupt.

      Keep writing we improve.

    This famous proverb means: “Be alert not to break the thread of love and trust; if broken, it cannot be put together except with a knot.” It’s a doha (Proverb) by a famous medieval-poet Abdul Rahim, the son of Akbar’s ‘trusted’ guardian and mentor. Akbar trusted Bairam Khan, the father of Rahim, just like his father because he taught him all the nitty-gritties of administration, artillery, statesmanship and played an important role in ascension of Akbar to the throne of Mughal Sultanate at a tender age of 14 years.

    “Trust is an investment that yields rewards in the long run.” I heard my father say it to me when I was embarking upon my journey towards an independent life with my new job in a new city. It led me to think about it deeply with introspection. I remember from my childhood videos that I would giggle and laugh every time my mom threw me in the air. You know why? Because I ‘trusted’ her, I knew that she would catch me in her arms and not let me fall on the ground.

    So, what is trust? Trust is assured reliance on someone or something in which confidence is placed. It is the most vital human value one looks for in relationships, family, friends, colleagues, shopkeepers, government, ministers, so on and so forth. When parents put their children in school away from them for 6-8 hours daily, they trust the school authorities with the RESPONSIBILITY of their child. School is an environment where a child starts developing friendships and respecting teachers, his second sphere of learning, after home. Everyone makes friends at every stage of life but only a few stick together forever and those select few are the ones in whom we put immense trust, who we know will never betray us, never fail us. They’ll always be around to support us in our dumps and highs all these years. We can trust them with our lives. This STRONG BOND and trust took years to build.

    Trust and HONESTY are hand in glove situation. If I found out that my best friend been badmouthing me behind my back in office just to rise up in the hierarchy in the professional world, I would be taken aback. My faith not only in friendship but in humanity too, will be shattered within a few seconds. I would become skeptical of people round me and it may even lead to the habit of me seeing people through the same lens again and again. This will definitely lead to a stressful life with many toxic relationships. Many times we see in news that someone in love committed suicide because their partner betrayed them. Such is the weightage of this indispensable trait in our lives that we cannot imagine any sphere without it. Let’s examine them one by one.

    Lok Sabha, the ‘House of people’, has representatives of people, which they have chosen through due process of election and put their trust in their ministers (Netajis) that they will represent them effectively on the floor of august parliament while making fair policies for their upliftment and welfare. Our national govt. is bringing in various measures such as Right to Information Act (RTI), Public Interest Litigation (PIL), e-governance, e-Biz, various IT tools to have a more responsive government. These days govt. is actively seeking citizens’ trust by bringing in more of such measures of good governance.

    In the international sphere, Russia is hailed as the NATURAL ALLY of India because it has backed us with various defence supplies right since independence and continues to side with us, be it transferring state-of-the-art technology to set up nuclear reactors or supporting India’s permanent membership at UN Security Council. On the other hand, US who had started gained India’s trust ever since the Nuclear deal has again sort of lost it because it supplied F-16 fighter planes to Pakistan, India’s most hostile neighbour.

    Pakistan, the terrorist harbouring territory, has not missed a single chance to hurt India. History speaks for itself that the majority of interterritorial hostilities and attacks that India bore, were designed on the soil of Pakistan. The famous Kargil war, the Mumbai attacks, the parliament house attacks, everything was masterminded by Pakistan. The saddest part is that even after investigations and proofs that the terrorist organisations such as al-qaeds, jaish-e-mohammad, etc. are operating from Pakistan, it denies the fact at international forums. Latest Pathankot attacks are a case in point because after many years of stalemate, this time Pakistan has come forward for joint investigations upon being invited by New Delhi to Pathankot. But it needs to be reiterated that it will take India at least a 100 years to trust Pakistan, given its past history.

    Like every other machinery, we also tend to fall sick. We seek our doctor’s guidance and medication in such cases. Hence, we put our trust in the doctor that he will cure us. This is why Doctors are often called GODS by critically ill patients. But the same trust is breached when we hear incidents like kidney stolen from patient’s body illegally by a doctor without informing him. Such a person who’s not medically equipped to make things right on his own finds it hard to comprehend the truth that his doctor was in fact a ‘dalaal’, someone who sells anything in lure of money.

    Banks, one of the most important pillars of finance of any country, give us a working example of trust. They lend loans to beneficiaries based on collateral mostly, trusting the loan-receiving entity that they will return it back with interest. Many businesses have flourished by taking loans from banks. RBI is called the lender of the last resort and rightly so. When govt. has huge budget deficit with nothing else to finance it, it goes to RBI. This trust in RBI and banks helps in the smooth functioning of govt. and its welfare schemes. But these days Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) are making the headlines, which shows the breach of trust of public in banks. People are skeptical of putting their hard-earned money in banks for they fear of losing it in case the bank goes bankrupt. At the same time, major loan defaulters such as Vijay Mallya, the owner of UB group, the owner of once famous Kingfisher airlines, have breached the trust of not only the bank, the govt. but also his fans and citizens. Thanks to our intelligence agencies, wrongs will be brought to book soon.

    Therefore, we can say that trust is one of the most important things that one needs in all spheres viz. personal, political, social, international, financial and most importantly, family. It takes years to build, seconds to break. Family is the first place where we learn how to trust and whom to trust. We should forever aspire to be better human beings to make this world a better place to live in. A world where people live in harmony with each other, trust each other and have a POSITIVE MINDSET.

    • I was thinking why didn’t anyone use this Rahim’s quote today! Finally my search is over 😀

      1st se second para me jaane pe THODA sa flow break hota.

      Parents trust (Y), but quote ka second part aapne shayad connect nai kia

      There is a difference between trust and faith 🙂

      Jo aapne RTI, E-Biz solutions diye wo end me dete to mazaa aa jaata 😛

      America waala para is apt.

      I guess Pakistan waale para me the examiner might not agree with yu. India Pakistan k beech kabhi trust tha hi nai (Personal view) So it depends upon the discretion of the examiner, what he believes.

      Banks waala para is veryyy good!

      Conclusion could be improved, more because the part above it is awesome.
      Ek complaint, why didn’t use the second half of the quote? It is not coming clearly… May be I am wrong here 🙁

            • M not an expert but I can say that the way you wrote you would get a decent enough marks. Just work on the bits I said. Don’t worry, you are doing good.

              P.S I don’t give marks and don’t believe in anyone giving marks (Except if it’s UPSC 🙂

    • black mamba

      loved the bank, and lok sabha example.
      start is good!
      i somehow felt u gave enough dimensions but lacked on depth.
      a little more on what happens once trust is broken and how to fix it – by including forgiveness or maybe improving ourselves by being more trustworthy is worth a mention.
      Like yeah, see u wrote quote by Confucius, but also build a smooth connection with the body

      overall a very nice essay !
      hope this helps
      ignore if not useful
      😀

      • HappyIAS

    • aashish 2000

      Intro is good..
      I dont agree with your view that trust reap rewards in long term… Can you please elaborate on this…
      Instead of trust results rewards… I feel rewards whether physical or mental brings the trust…
      Your connectives focused on how trust in different spheres but why is it important to maintain trust..should be dealt in prior…and focus on why builiding takes time…needs to be covered…
      Overall a good read… Keep writing…
      Liked your point on trust between government and citizens…

      • HappyIAS

        when u trust someone, u can rely on them to get ur work done. rely on them in times of crisis.. if u r a trustworthy person, people respect u. u have a dignified life.. good rapport in socal circle..

      Dear HappyIAS,
      1. Intro is good, but it stood apart from the answer. The connectivity from intro to subsequent para is not there.
      2. Multidimensional, yet the focus was predominantly on international affairs concerning India. = good
      3.Flow is nice.

      Overall an above average essay..
      Keep writing..

    • Hello Happy 🙂 liked ur name 🙂 🙂
      intro- I dont know why but now i’m liking all the intros. :/ 😀
      Body-
      Little connectivity shuru me, maybe you can work on jumping from one para to another. thodi si hai, even ignore it.
      Russia and Lok Sabha wale examples are unique and well expressed too.
      Like every other machinery, we also tend to fall sick.- This part. *claps*
      Vijay Mallya- I think individual names should not be mentioned. Har examiner ko nhi pasand aata! indirectly bolte tab bhi we understand ki aap kiski baat kar rhe hai hehe 🙂
      end me jaate jate shot maar gye with confucius _/_
      overall, its a wel written essay. You have provided good examples with good explaination.
      One more thing, sab theek hai but ek thoda critical philosophy wala part missing hai. ki in what case breach of trust is justified( although we can avoid writing it, but if u can express urself through it also, it would be one hell of an essay. and length to fir 1200+ words hai!
      overall a very good essay bro! keep writing and late reply k lie maaaaaafi 🙂

    • Hi pal,
      Am I allowed to review now? LOL! 😛

        i dont know man.. I’ve got mixed reviews..
        God knows :-/

    • Eco-friendly

      Intro was good. You covered multiple dimensions in body part.

      You can work on-
      1) bringing in the qspect- why people breach trust and what to do. What are the side effects
      2) Conclusion ko achha bna sakte ho. Looking at the body part I was expecting a nice conclusion

      Though you wrote well will fetch you good marks (but I am a novice here to give)
      All the best

      • HappyIAS

        thanks man. Just read ur today’s essay. Very good. Please review mine when u r free. Thanks 🙂

  • rajjoo!!

    In today’s era, with the growing population we are having innumerable mindsets,temperament, also growing simultaneously. Each individual has a different approach and intellect to comprehend things in its own ways thus giving a different conclusion or result to any particular situation depending upon the demand of time and circumstances.

    Trust is also one of those aspects which shows human behavior and in turn is directly linked to judge one’s positve or negative sides. Trust can be simply defined as keeping one’s word as promised or believing in someone even without promises made that the person out of ethical reasons wont betray or fail the test if he or she is being trusted by someone. Though there are other dimensions too defined in each and every aspect where trust actually comes into being.

    Trust can be categorised depending upon the sphere in which it is being judged –
    1. SOCIAL – few examples :-
    when one is trusting their peers, friends,colleages, partners,family,etc. Here trust comes and often linked emotionally where comes a blind faith or trust specially in case of ones partners and friends. The implications and consequences of betrayal leads to greater intensity whiuch can even lead to a person commit grave acts like suicide,mental illnes, out of strong emotional attachment.

    when one has appointed a babysitter to look after children specially for both working parents can lead to cascading effect to first the child then the parents/family and then to the sitter itself resulting to shunting out. Rebuilding trust becomes tougher in babysitters due to one incidence and leaves a negative impression or precedent for other sitters in long run.

    2. POLITICAL-
    Large number of expecting population who finds the government their sole uplifter providing them facilities via people centric schemes specially the rural and BPL familes, on trusting the election speeches give vote and brings in front their chosen leader on just trusting on him and on trusting the lip service given away during election rallies. In the course of the working years the words are proved real or fake and thus again a breach of trust occurs which leads to again squashing innumerable expecations based on the big words. Next time the same leader is not elected by the common people once the trust is broken.

    3. RELIGIOUS-
    India being stood up on the foundations of its rich multi-religious culture has various ever emerging self styled Godman. from ancient past till date we have found how the brahamas on the name of gods(being close to god) has exploited money and ruled over. We have many examples f self styled godman which on religious f=grounds gains the trust innocent people on the name of God(which is a very sensitive word to radicalise masses). for example cases of Nirmal baba, asaram bapu,etc

    trust is something which should if in force should be truly and genuinely justified and kept in safe hands specially whn so many peoples emotions are attached in want of God’s blessings.

    5.JUDICIAL
    Judge is a highly respectable individual who has the power to provide justice if he feels it is denied based on the laws or norms setup for the benefit of the individual and society and in turn setting a precedence for trust, good judgement and further expectations.
    In this sphere also the true victim he equally anxious and expects to be justiied on his claims trusting on the chair of the judge that the verdict will be veracious. It will maintain the confidence and trust of future litigants to respect the judiciary with fruitful expectations.

    5.INTERNATIONAL
    Trusts between countries in the sense of bilateral,multilateral,regional engagements and agreements is equally important for the countries in relation to prosper and hence build up an earth so what if separated by land water etc but otherwise intact and linked to each other in a way for each others developement. Having good trusts benefits all the members participating and thus builds up a strong strategic partnership which is always good in long run. Breaching of this trust not only hampers the reation between the respective governmets but also builds up hatred and fear among their people(xenophobia), thus preventing people to believe that world is common place of all without discrimination.

    “Trust takes years to build ,seconds to break” , is in a sense well justified because trusting or having faith in someone or something involes deep fathoming, endless emotions, time of the individual or others, resources human, economical,financial9 interms of organisation ,employer,employees), any many other factors. It takes up all if trust is breached or broken leading to a society build up on cynicism. It leads to always doubting on even the true or genuine players,individuals,etc. It builds up a mindset based on once experiences of trust or betrayal which benefitting or harming at the same time makes a society in turn a place to live with vigilance,doubt,cynicism rather than mutual co-operation, altruism, love and trust which was what during the times of ancient india when people lived as a whole family barring the geographical barriers in unison no matter where they stayed near or far.
    Trust is the backbone of any relationship, it lays the foundations for a just and habital society with fulfilling expectations of all.

    Once there used to be a penniless,but ambitious young man,who,in his search for glory,came under the patronage of an old but able ruler of a distant land.the brave man,eager to prove himself,showed exemplary courage and talent and soon climbed up the ranks to become the commander-in chief,and one of the most trusted allies,of this ruler.however,his ambition not satiated yet,he hungered for more power and tried to usurp the ruler who had trusted him for years.although his plan failed,his treachery went undiscovered and he waited,biding his time till the next opportunity should strike.
    when the ruler died,leaving his young and unexperienced grandson in charge, the time was golden to strike.unfortunately,the grandson proved to be more resilient than he looked,and after discovering the plans of this man,banished him from his court.however,the young Nawab was to face a much more challenging threat in the form of outsiders who,in the name of carrying out trade within his territory,were systematically undermining his authority.in an effort to throw them out once and for all in a decisive battle that was to be-all and end-all,the Nawab approached his old friend turned ally again, asking for his help in return for forgiveness of past trespasses and full restoration of his old position.but was the trust the Nawab placed on this old acquaintance warranted?would he get betrayed again?

    he would and he did. in the historic battle of plassey, Mir Zafar famously stood by and watched as the English conclusively crushed the young Nawab Siraj-ud-daula and later killed him.the cost of this betrayal would prove to be momentous-not only it fully eroded any trust that the court had in its members, it paved the way for British occupation and rule over the entire subcontinent,for over 200 years,changing the course of the history of not just india,but the entire world. and all because of a single act of betrayal.

    TRUST is a loaded concept in human society. it may be understood as the act of putting one’s faith in someone or something other than oneself, over which the person has little control. oftentimes, this act has two components –

    1. rational- this involves building of trust after observing a person’s behaviour, usually over a long period of time,and using it to arrive at educated guesses of the way they may be expected o behave in the future.
    it may also be derived due to mutual partnership of benefit-if to entities are benefitting from an alliance,it is reasonable to expect that they wont do anything contrary to their collective interests.

    2.emotional-this is a far more subjective component of trust. a person may trust something or someone,even inspite of contradictory evidence.it may stem from a belief in innate goodness of someone,or due to cultural/religious/ideological upbringing which necessitates having faith in certain entities.

    these 2 components are rarely seen in isolation,oftentimes complementing and compounding one another.that is why,when someone’s trust is broken, it is usually drastic and often irreparable, not simply because of the loss suffered or rational expectations of behaviour being defied,but also due to a sense of injustice and betrayal that leads to an enhanced emotional response.

    Why do people trust-

    1.NEED- no system,or human being is self-sufficient enough to never need anyone else.even the best of systems or plans will face circumstances that are outside of their control.in such cases,they will also need to recruit entities or outside who do not have similar stakes as them, and are essentially,also outside of their control. therefore,the need to place faith into someone/something that is not bound to the same concerns as us becomes a necessity.

    2.WANT- for biological and evolutionary reasons, human beings are found to have an inherent want of believing in something greater than themselves.whether it be religion,morality,ideology,community,or simply a belief in innate trustworthiness of others, humans have always been eager to suspend their disbelief and take leaps of faith in order to fulfil certain intrinsic needs,one of them being a sense of belonging.thus, even when no incentives exist,we are ready to place our trust in others.

    why do people break trust-
    A brilliant mathematician and economist, John Nash proposed Game Theory for human behaviour,one of the most revolutionary theories that was used in many fields during the cold war era.
    the game theory,simply put,assumes that all human beings are rational creatures ,wholly motivated by self interests and self-advancements. it follows,then,that whenever humans are trying to cooperate with each other, if betraying,or not cooperating leads to furthering of one’s interests in a sustainable manner,without any unduly risks, they will be expected to betray.

    today the theory is found to be too simplistic an assumption,and individual human beings show empathy and are emotional,and do not follow what is expected of them.however,it is a good enough approximation to understand why people betray when they do.

    instances of betrayal-
    history is full of numerous examples of trust being broken,and the aftermaths of it.here are some examples of trust being broken between different entities-

    1.international-
    disintegration of soviet union leading to insurgency and breakdown of trust between many adjacent countries, indo-china war leading to erosion of trust between the two countries,the split of korea and the long embittered rivalry ever since,all point to the difficulty in restablishing trust once its broken.

    2.in government-
    all internal revolutions- russian,french,indian independence movement, or the systematic campaign to end aparatheid in south africa, point towards instances when citizens lost faith in their government and took it upon themselves to bring about change.
    a recent example may be given of the resignation of democratically elected president of iceland after panama leaks exposed his offshore accounts,leading to breakdown of trust in him.

    3.in economy-
    the euro crisis,started in greece,was precipitated by sudden lack of faith of investors in the country’s economy leading to flight of capital and starting of a recession the world hasn’t overcome still,even after having tried several worldwide reforms.
    now the integrity of EU itself is in question due to talks to ‘brexit’

    4.in ideology-
    severa examples,like those of germans within nazi germany who lost faith in the government’s propaganda and openly conspired against them,to the widespread protests in america following the vietnam war,where people started questioning excesses committed in the name of capitalism for the first time on a wide scale.
    the loss of faith in socialism and resulting regime upheaval is also well documented.

    5.in individuals-
    although individuals have betrayed each other since time immemorial, the most well-known example is also one of the earliest-the betrayal and assassination of julius ceasar in the hands of his friend and ally,brutus,leading to a bitter civil war that rome took a long time in recovering from.

    therefore, there is no dearth of examples or instances of betrayal,just like there is an equally large list of negative fallouts from the same.

    so,knowing all this,how can one use this knowledge as an upstanding citizen or a public servant? there are several inferences that can be drawn –

    1. trust is invariably necessary-
    however capable one might be,there will always be things beyond ones control,for which trust in others is required. even for day to day living without adversities,as one cant study and analyse everything for themselves,one needs to place their trust in experts who can guide them in different aspects

    2.trust needs to be handled responsibly –
    there are 2 aspects to this-

    a. when others are trusting us- it becomes our responsibility to validate their faith in us. it shows our integrity, and strength of character, sets a good precedence in front of others, forms an environment of trust and cooperation, and also gives us friends and allies we can trust in return.

    b.when we trust others- while having faith in others,we should also e responsible enough to choose our allies and well-wishers wisely and also prepare for the eventuality of being betrayed.

    3. trust is a part of what makes us human-
    trust,faith,empathy and compassion, along with a sense of justice and responsibility are the most cherished human values that are known and respected by all. beyond game theories and rationalisation, mutual benefit and other materialistic concerns, having the ability to trust others and be trusted is something that makes us more than just living beings, gives a meaning to our existence and a spiritual dimension to our lives. not being able to believe in these values has ramifications greater than immediate or even long term consequences- it kills off an essential part of what being a human means to us. therefore,even if we are only upholding trust just for the sake of it, that is a mighty worthy end in of itself.

    It has been year since sharma uncle is living in this township. He has many neighbourhoods who have become good friends as well, the trust has developed so much that whatever good happens in each-other house they share everything like family and share their bad times also. The daughter of sharma uncle is studying in 10th class and His neighbour friend’son doing graduation. Since the trust is so much that whenever any problems comes the children have also mingled in each others activities but everything is unpredictable. Once shrama uncle saw his friend’s boy with his daughter in unusual( doubtful) activity when she went for some help in studies. Now the other facet of seen started, the trust sharma uncle and his friend developed in many years living in this township is on the verge of collapse and finally sharma uncle has changed his house in another area. Why all the this happened only because there was a doubtful crack line in the castle of trust which took years to built.

    The nature has created its beauty but the beauty is no for living in isolated space it has to be shared with others also the questions is to whom? We have many ups and downs but do we share that with everyone whom we know, i think no..we share with the trusted people who could resolve our problems or share our happiness, But we do these things only till everything is going smooth. When the doubt comes on trust we stop everything and change our way.

    The people trust on the representative of constituency from years, because he liked to resolve the grievance of the people of his constituency but when some people observed his bad behaviour with one lady in office and the news spread like fire among people, the very next day most people called meetings and demanded the resignation of that person. The people in a democratic country believe on their representative and relevant bureaucrats as they fall completely depended on them but when the observe their unusual behaviour who else will take care of them??

    Similarly in modern times relationship many suicides among young couples whether married or un-married because people get hurted when their companion behaves like unknown person, in now a days in the time of digital revolution it takes just a few seconds in messaging and calling and the whole story of years ends in just a few seconds specially among teenagers who are not enough mature to have understanding and bit more emotional.

    The story of ” Cattle gazer and Villagers remind me of the same context, where once the cattle gazer made villagers fool on untimely demand of help but later he had to repent with his life for breaking that trust.

    The consequences of these kind of dealing result in an uncoordinated society ( like many communal activities also resulted due these kind of behaviour who used to live peacefully with each other.) Now even when the other person rectify the mistakes people generally don’t believe as before.As the famous Kabir das line ” rahiman dhaga prem ka mat todo chutkay, tute se phir na mile , mile gaath pad jaye” ( The sacred thread of trust should be dealt with very alarmingly and with truth.

    The specially the government’s instruments bureaucratic intelligentsia has to give proper understanding in these matters as they deal with many innocent and illiterate people depends on them for making life better way. Similarly there has to be rational thinking so that people could become emancipated and there is least need for depending on others for going ahead, Women empowerment has to be give more focus as they are more prone to these kinds of unnecessary life hurdles and sometimes even they pay with life.
    There has to be understanding regrading how to deal with different kind of people differently.
    The way we behave with others, we will get reciprocation in same way. so we have to be very careful and respect each other’s characteristics fr a better developed society so there is scope to upliftment in other sectors.

    Neeta, a 20 year old budding Hindi poem writer used to write poems and get them checked by a lady in her neighborhood who too was a Hindi writer though much experienced and quite older in comparison to her. The gap of age and understanding never obstructed their friendship. Neeta always liked the suggestions made by her friend and happily incorporated in her poems to make them better. But her college friends did not like their friendship and always criticized her for keeping friendship with an elder lady. It was the goodness of Neeta that she kept herself away from such a non-sense. But for how long? Gradually a change was seen in her behavior and her best friend (the lady) recognized it very soon. Now all her suggestions seemed to her that she is showing off her superiority by pointing out unnecessary suggestions. Still she continued to get her poems
    reviewed but now that charm had lost. Then it became a formality for both of them which they were continuing for the namesake of their shared past good relations. Now the trust that they had had tattered and lost ground.

    Building and destructing process of feelings goes on but in which world, we don’t know. Shahjahn made the masons to build the Taj Mahal, a symbol of his immoral love for Mumtaj and its construction was seen by people contemporary to him and we are seeing it today. But the love and the trust that they shared was not constructed by any mason in any given period of time. It was result of understanding and faithfulness that they had between them from what time we never know.

    Life becomes easy when we have some reliable persons around us to trust upon unless living in this perplexing world would become hard. But this reliability comes on its own swing. No clock can pre-pone it and no power can fasten its pace. Trust and belief are two considerably different things. Let’s take a real world example- our relations with China in 1950s were of trust. We shared brotherly feelings which were developing since the birth of China. And what we have with Pakistan is our belief, a self assumed assurance. We know Pakistan would always play dirty politics whatever India tries her best to have peaceful relations with him. It is reason that when China belied India’s trust she affected badly and could not revive back the same feelings till now. But with Pakistan India is habitual with all negativity because of the trust deficit between them.

    Trust building is the slow but a progressive process. It is the strengthening of relations and making them solid enough to last for
    infinite time. The same faith was shown by Indian people in constitution makers and in early governments. It took them a whole period of Indian national movement and some decades after independence to trust on one party for their welfare and upliftment. But when they found their trusted representative to be indulged in corrupt practices all things changed for reverse. The decades long trust broke away in just few years.

    Though it is easy and quick to doubt and difficult and late to trust but it this difficulty and delay is the safety valve against any future mishappening which is more likely to be there because of the miscalculated hastened moves. In this materialistic world man is running short of time and sometimes it takes just ten minutes conversation to put all his belief in someone. Trust is eternal only if it is real unless it would surely face the test of time and would shatter away with one sudden storm.

    A person can be doubtful enough not to trust anyone and one can be so innocent to trust everyone. Both are extremes and we know excess of everything is dangerous. Trust breaks in seconds only when it is not kept faithfully. Like Apple, a giant mobile manufacturing company which even after pressurized by court did not allow backdoor entry of investigation agency to have access to the private data of its users. It is the keeping of trust. If Apple has bowed down then we could have said trust broken it seconds.

    Trusting someone is as good as being trustworthy for someone as both require unmatchable honesty and continuity of the same behavior. Once the trust is broken it would never reach the same height as it was. Even double the time which took to trust would not be enough to hide the cracks of broken trust. It is advisable to keep the list of your trusted persons limited but keep it solid.

    • CSE2016 aspirant

      If I review your answers, and you do not like it and do not want to incorporate in your answers – will it be a breach trust : Okay I can see that friendship is not so strong – but kuch aur likh sakti thi – there are numerous examples – review to voluntary karte hain log – naa to trust seconds main break hua old lady ka isme.
      Some examples are good (International relation, Apple waala )
      You could have written more – gave diverse examples – you could have written about importance of having trust – giving 2nd chance – importance – counter views and all

      But, considering this a s your first essay – it was well written 🙂

      • bhawana

        Not incorporating and liking the reviews are the after effects of trust breach.They show the sourness of relations. It shows that how every thing got changed. Reviews are given voluantry but in this case it was the base. I should have written a more specific example. And its not my first essay? I have writtwn two more but sometime earlier.

        Thanks for reviewing. Will write better next time ?

    There is a famous story of a noble man named Baba Bharti. He had a horse, which he was very fond of. The fame of the horse was spread all along in the nearby villages. Khadag Singh, a famous dacoit of the area wanted to buy that horse, but Baba Bharti refused. Once Baba Bharti was going somewhere on that horse. A lame and ill man he met on the way asked him to drop to some village on his way. Baba Bharti got down and helped the person mount the horse. It was just some distance from where they started when Baba Bharti got a jerk and fell down. It turned out that the person was Khadag Singh in disguise. He captured the horse. On realizing this, Baba Bharti asked Khadag Singh for just one thing and that was not to mention this incident to anyone else. Khadag Singh was surprised; he expected him to beg for the horse, at least ask for a price or something like that. He enquired Baba Bharti for the reason of his strange request. Baba Bharti replied saying that if people knew of this incidence, they would stop trusting anyone in need and would stop helping them. This was his only worry after losing the horse, which was so dear to him that he had refused to sell it earlier. In the story Khadag Singh is so impressed that later he returns the horse to Baba Bharti.

    Trust is something which you can rely upon. It is like building a house brick by brick. It cannot be made by just placing the whole house at once. However, by some natural calamity or by man-made crane can turn it into rubble in some minutes. Trust is build by your character, perseverance, empathy and your continued process of optimism. One needs to be seen farsighted, through which someone can see a possibility for good. A mother builds trust with her child through which her child knows that whatever happens my mother would save me from all bad things even from demons/witches. This happens through various small things which child feels while growing. A mother helps their children in feeding, walking, bathing, playing, clothing or whatever else they do in life. These all makes a space in child’s corner that this person(mother) is taking care of his/him in everything and tries to make life easier. Though this trust between mother and child develops. In return what parents aspire is the same care and love they will receive in their old age. This is first trust relationship a person has in his/her life. The bond between any relationship is built on the basic units of trust. Whether you have known any person in the past or present doesn’t matter unless you have trust between.

    Trust is vital for fruitful human existence. Every work is related in some or the other way with trust or believe. If you cannot trust somebody then you cannot work with him. Business deal’s foundation is based on trust. Only setting legal aspects is not the sufficient condition for any agreement. There must be some personal understanding between the parties involved. Trust has to be there before coming any deal on paper. Without trust a person cannot buy some fruits from seller. He just go by seller’s saying that the fruit is fresh and good and the money he is given is also genuine and not fake. The seller is not going to cut the fruit in front of buyer or check the notes. It is the trust which is maintain between them which pushes to go for the deal. Relationship, business or even one’s inner-self that needs trust to move forward in life. One has to be self confident while pursuing any dream. if you cannot rely on your dreams, how are you thinking to achieve that? You have to trust yourself that you can change dreams into reality.

    In everyday life we follow many stars in bollywood. Some of them we like the most. Why some of them are liked by many and people used to watch every single movie of them. Some are respected for their work and people wait for their movie to come because audience know that whatever he do will be good to watch. This craze for any star is not built in a single day or year but develops over the years. When any star gives one after other good movie he builds a strong space in people’s mind. People follows many deities because they have trust in them. They know that their god will remain with them in every situation. It is their trust through which they can keep doing their work even in distrust. They know that all their agony will be taken away from their god one day. Hope is a good thing in life. It keeps you moving and helps in pursuing your goal. When you trust somebody that he will be there for you when you need, someone above you. You know that he is watching you in every step you are taking then your every move will going to be in right direction. You think twice before taking any immoral direction.

    However, blindly following something can be disastrous. As we keep advice from our dear ones that we shouldn’t eat while travelling in train or bus, or we should not fall in lure if some stranger gives anything lucrative to us. All this advice has a meaning in them. Many so called beggars after begging change their get up and used to do wrong things. So one cannot blindly believe someone only with their appearance. But we can go through with our experience that if any lame of disabled person is begging for something then we can help them. But if somebody physically capable of doing word and demanding money then it is a matter to enquiry that why he is involved in such tasks and not earning money via doing some work.

    It is true that good things take years to make on the other hand to destroy something does not take a moment to end. But it is not surprising that we make trust on somebody with great efforts over a large time period which is a nice thing to happen and in destroying the same thing takes nothing comparable but huge loss. We should not think before ending trust on somebody which is based on years friendship or relationship. Moreover, it should takes more time to destroy one’s trust that in making it. Misunderstanding should not be there and if it is, it must be end though communication which is the best cure in every case. However, we should act judiciously before trusting somebody or something.

    Trust is a companion which everybody should have in their life. It gives you the necessary adrenal to keep going forward. It makes you stronger and a better person in life. At the same time and most important it keeps you human being. In the sense when you believe in something above you it makes you humble. Otherwise in the way humans are expanding in every direction unfortunately their ego are also increasing. Trusting somebody keep us aware or even in fear that if we do something wrong he/she is ahead of.

    TRUST TAKES YEARS TO BUILD AND SECONDS TO BREAK

    What is trust? Trust is the feeling that one living being keeps with itself towards others in which there are some expectations of certain behaviours and actions that are syncretic to one’s thoughts. Some say it is that emotion when one feels safe in company of others on which trust is reposed. For ex. One trusts one’s family and friends. They know their behavior very well and expect to supplement their own personality in times of need.

    Often the words trust and faith are used interchangeably in modern literati. Despite their commonness in essence, their substance is a little different. One does not ever say one follows one’s trust. Always it is said that one follows a certain faith i.e. related to rituals and practices. Trust is always posed on an individual or a entity. Faith on the other hand can be on an individual, or entity or a set of rules, principles or codes such as religious ones.

    Trust towards someone is not innate, rather it requires a build up. Build up of an emotion. Unusual isn’t it, like an emotion is deliberately being build up. But its true. One does not talk frankly with a stranger. Remember yourself feeling uncomfortable when you walked into a group of strangers. If you would have trust in all of them you would have been perfectly fine. One can say that one has trust over relatives or friends because it is through continuous contact over ling time that one feels comfortable. There is deep trust among the patients and family doctors. There is trust between student and teacher. There is one thing common among them that is long term contact. But how and why does it develop. Is it necessary to be present, or rather without which one cannot survive?

    Humans evolved from animals, that is established beyond doubt. One of the many traits that they passed on to humans was of being a social being. Humans need other humans to interact, to share life experiences and make friends or fight or quarrel. Apart from being the ones dedicated to asceticism for a definite plan no one in human can boast to live alone aloof from other organisms. That is the reason humans make friends.

    In this process, they pose their trust on them, and there is comfortable ‘chemistry’ between them. Further humans open up their hearts towards each other and share their emotions and views with them and nurture each other with the riches of views and personality development. That is the essence of evolution, that is how humans evolved making their mind sophisticated over the ages.

    Hence one can realize from above that time is a distinguishing factor when one talks of trust, and it is not only between living organisms, it can also be applied to organizations and nations and their policies. Take the example of sino-indian relations. Mr. Nehru, the first prime minister of independent india had fondness with the Chinese history and culture. Post independence he did well to nurture the relations. Reciprocity was also well received. There were chants of ‘hindi-cheeni bhai bhai’ (Indians and Chinese are brothers). But only on the question of border dispute, there were misunderstandings which led to bloody war, whose results are affecting both the nations more that 50 years since it happened. Every move today is seen by the other with suspicion and the other tries to devour sinister designs behind it.

    One may find it unfair that with so much effort trust gets build over much time, and it shatters in an instant. But that is the way it goes. There are many reasons for it. Among them, the nature of humans that needed the life of trust to be there, also is suspects trust. the reason is for its survival. For the reason of survival there is selfishness in it. It wants to be safe all the times and create conditions perfect for itself. In this view even if there is slightest possibility of the conditions not getting fulfilled for above, the seed of mistrust gets ripened in its mind and the trust gets shaken.

    The global world of money and materialization has only made it worse. Negative emotions ride high in most people. There may be positive ones but even one negative fellow corrupts the whole surrounding. Somehow this also is unfair, but again that’s how it goes.

    Often in real lives and in cinemas we see, these specter of the game of suspicion being played in lives of couple. The bonds of trust getting weakened so easily by the winds of infidelity blowing in ears of the better halves. The relationship gets soured, and what follows is break up or a divorce. That is the usual case. Things happen very fast in this modern world, and one should not be hesitant to belive that these modern thoughts sprung up, get buried or get materialized even faster.

    But, what about trust getting fixed up. Is it possible. Oh yeah, why not. But then for it to get accomplished humans have to behave like one, meaning be sensible. They have to shed their respective and priced ego. Accept mistakes if they have committed. Have communication to patch up, which is most important. Marriages are resettled only through these mechanisms. They are scant, but they do happen.

    Even the governments represented by parties in democracies, often go haywire with their policies and breach the trust of their voters. Bu then through clear plan and through communication, the bonds are build up to regain their trust. it is normal that second time also the pace of trust development is slow as before, or rather it is more slow and difficult than before, because bonds of distrust are already there, and one has to break these bonds first and build the trust bonds after that.

    What does trust have a lesson for us humans. What can It, a mere emotion, a feeling teach us in this modern world of hullabaloo and rapid changes. It definitely tells us to be human. It guides us for our behaviours towards others. Take care of relationships and remake them if they damaged. It teaches us to be of forgiving nature. Forgiveness helps, and as gandhiji said it is not for the weak, but for the strong. We must preserve our trust and see to it that negative emotions do not take control of our minds and be a part in breaking trust and relationships. Above all it helps us to know ourselves better, our reactions to situations, our thoughts and actions, our behavior. We must preserve trust and spread positive values that are associated with it to make the world a better place to live in.

    My First essay!

    Little girl and father were crossing a bridge, the father was little scared and said to his daughter to hold his hand while crossing the bridge, but the girl told him to hold her hand. It was because the girl trusted his father more than herself, as she may let go off her father’s hand in ca
