"Never explain yourself to any one.Because the person who likes you doesn't need it,and the person who dislikes you won't believe it.." -- Author Unknown
Nice thought to start in the morning. It works when the world is divided into black & white. Into two kinds of persons, one who always like you and one who always dislike you. Unfortunately, majority of the persons you know would like you sometimes and dislike you the other times (or worse still: they will be indifferent) depending on their equation with you at the present.
Secondly, the people who like you do not remember the "noble thought" when they ask you for an explanation and you just can't remain silent giving the excuse expressed in the "thought for the day ". And the people who dislike you are not looking for an explanation anyway. They have their negative prejudices about you firmly enshrined and they will analyse every action of yours through them.
However after reading Dhoni's interview with cricinfo; captioned 'It's important to send the message across-Dhoni' ; one is certain that he should pay a heed to such noble thoughts. In this interview, the young rajput captain of the Indian cricket team from Ranchi defends dropping of seniors from the India ODI cricket team and cites the fantastic 2-0 win in the CB series in Australia as the proof of a young Indian team playing aggressive cricket, successfully.
Maturity over time will convince Dhoni that there isn't any need to explain anything to anybody as long as the results on the field talk for themselves.
