Have you heard of 'Satyameva Jayate' , the national slogan of our country? It means that Truth alone Triumphs .Yes, I believe that the whole life of a man succeed only when he is truthful. Not only in relationship, but in every day to day activities.To me,bravery is not only needed in war front but also in telling the truth and facing the aftermath.

To me never even play for fun by telling lies.

Last but not the least never fear for saying the truth. Whatever be the consequence of truth, face it. When we are truthful, we will have a peace of mind. We will have a...
