Have you ever plotted anyone's murder?

Well, the title of this post can raise eye-brows and make the reader gasp saying, "How on earth?" But the truth is at some point there comes that one individual who induces us to plot his/her murder. I have thrice plotted a murder in my mind (but never ever had the courage to actually doing it). Most of us know the Ten Commandments and the commandment which says, "Thou shalt not kill." In spite of the commandment and inspite of knowing that no one has the right to take away another's life, the thought sometimes feels justified when certain actions of people are seen. 

The three murders that I have plotted in my mind, according to me, are justified because of the nature and deeds of the people involved. Now, I know that I am not the one to decide on anyone's right to live or die but the actions that were committed by the three are worthy enough to kill them. The three in question have a deep ability to hurt and upset not only me abut also many other individuals. Now, one doesn't plot the murder of every third person we know but only some who possess that potential weapon which can be used to upset the balance of life. 

While I write this post, I also understand the words, 'kindness,' 'compassion, and 'forgiveness.' Well, if I say that no matter how much I try to be kind and forgiving, the individuals just don't stop themselves from doing harm. So much so, my kindness is seen as weakness and an attitude which is not capable of standing up. 



Coming back to the "plotting murder" part, I have let myself have the luxury of taking cues of murder from the various books I've read and the many films I watched. And how juicily I try different ways to kill that special individual who has managed to incite so much anger and hate within me. Given my peace-loving disposition, it takes a person of great failings to drive me to think of murder. I have been saddened by my thoughts of plotting a murder to the extent that I have had doubts about my self but those doubts were laid to rest when certain other individuals also confessed having similar thoughts about people whom I would have liked to eliminate. 

The mind and imagination can go to any lengths in thinking and plotting and sometimes this license enables the individual to travel and explore the darker and unsought realms of fantasy. Afterall there is no ethics, punishment and judgment involved when it comes to imagination!

Do such sinister thoughts surprise you, my dear reader?

P.S: I have done away with those plottings, as I seem to be tired of thinking about those three individuals. I'd rather think of exotic places, dark knights and fantastic blog posts!

  1. I've plotted many murders too, Susan, though I never executed it :) I believe that certain humans drive us to that extent and they are at fault for making us think this way! It doesn't mean that we lack kindness or compassion!

    An unexpected but a thought-provoking post from your blog, Susan :) Keep blogging! :)

    P.S: I loved your P.S too :)

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment, Sowmya. I realise that some people don't deserve life. Perhaps I'm being a bit too harsh but still.

    1. So, how is the missus Sanjay doing? Glad to see the missus here.

      3 are the most intense ones! There have been others who got off with slaps (in my head of course!)

  4. Maybe you should take these plots you've come up with and write a wonderfully entertaining murder mystery! (Names may be changed of course!:) I think that it is quite common to occasionally come across a person who drives us just a bit mad. :)

    1. Splendid idea, Colleen but I have to invest a lot of time and energy on writing everything.

      Hope you have been well and happy <3.

  5. Maybe you should compile these elaborate plots and write a wonderfully entertaining murder mystery for us to enjoy!:) (Names may be changed of course.:) All in all I think it is quite normal to occasionally come across a person who drives us a bit mad!

  6. LOL! Susan these individuals really did get under your skin, didn't they? I haven't quite gone to the extent of plotting a murder but yes, hurting someone I have thought but never got around to implementing those sinister thoughts! Finally it comes down to not giving anyone that kind of power so as to make us want to do and think of doing such things.By the way, I love the movie "Dial M for murder"!

    1. Yes, "Dial M for murder" is an excellent thriller. Well, the people in question did hurt me but now all that is history.

  7. The fact is our imagination and minds are so incredibly powerful we can see ourselves do anything ... our potential is awesome., Be careful though visualise it too often, we often bring into reality what we see in our head

    1. You're right, Larry. Before I could bring them to reality, I stopped the process. The mind is indeed very powerful.

    1. You call the person "special?" I have dozens of plots . . . poisoning food, noxious gas into the room, spray pesticides on their face, the old strangling method, mixing poison in their face cream and many more . . .

      Delete
    2. Yes I call the person special, Because only that person could have brought all this misery in my life and succeeded doing it. hence special.. and hopefully others wont get that chance to do it again :)

      and I like those idea , we need to share the Recipe he he he he :)

  9. Hi Susan!!! i hope that you keep it confined to the planning and plotting stage only. anyway, remember that i am your friend and if you feel the need to unload something/anything- you can just pick up the phone and call. btw, i have plotted murders too- for writing those potboiler mystery novels and i always keep on looking for the perfect getaway, i still havent found a way to make sure that the murderer actually gets away with it- they do goof up somehow.

    1. Oh yes, even I have set up "perfect getaways" but alas every murderer leaves a trail but somehow I imagine myself to be very skilled in escaping.

      Well, as for unloading -- thanks a lot, Dok. Maybe you should give me lot of injections and medicines which induce slow killing!!!

  10. This topic is scaring and controversial.

    I guess we all have had the feeling that justice could only be made by killing those, say, rapists and those who torture children... and...OMG---
    I am not an executor, instead I'd torture them, but again, to feel some kind of relief I need to believe those who deserve such killing are ill, realy ill.

    Nobody is perfect and this world is unfortunately full of unjustice, but there is beauty as well, and as humans we serch for surviving, if only in our plotting minds...

    1. I know that thoughts as these are very dangerous but somehow being humans, one cannot escape these thoughts. some people don't deserve to live, I think and so let's eliminate them. But I am very scared to even try doing any of the things I had imagined.

      Good to see you here, dear sweetest after a long time.

    1. Hey, I can only plot and not act!!! so your fears can be rested.

      Glad that you atleast have a hitlist!

  12. I don't think I have ever wanted to kill someone but a long time ago I strongly wished someone to die in an accident such as falling from a roof!
    And now when I think of that I feel somewhat confused and ashamed!
    Thanks for sharing your mind. I guess the people you mention did hurt you deeply inside.

    Happy day****

    1. Welcome here dear Mildred. I often see you at Nevine's. Somehow I don't feel either ashamed or confused. But I have stopped thinking of such actions. Justice will be there for them, anyway.

      Wishing happy days back to you dear Mildred.

  13. I applaud the candid nature of this post...I think it's great to be so honest, so few ever are. I have to say once or twice the dark thought has entered my mind that the world minus a couple of particular people would be a much brighter place! Fleeting though, mind you, but nonetheless I can relate to a degree with the sentiment of this post! I think most people, if they are honest, can too. :)

    1. Thanks for your appreciation, dear Jessica. Well, there are only a few who can be Zen-like and carry on. People like me attempt to be peaceful and gentle in thoughts and deeds. I am striving nevertheless to cleanse my thoughts and deeds.

  14. I have never had this feeling of literally killing someone, though I have felt, at times, to go and slap someone really hard. I am a bit of a Gandhian and even more than that a bit of a rationalist. So I tend to seek the psychological reasons behind the annoying acts of others, pity them, and move on. Or, not talk to them at all. Simple. :-)

    1. "Not talk to them at all" seems very simple to say but that just cannot happen. Only when one is in a situation like that, the scene is imaginable. Only theorising it is impossible.

      Good for you that you are a Gandhian and rationalist.

  15. Has anyone warned Raymond yet that his life partner is a potential murderer? I am reminded of that futuristic Steinberg movie where you are arrested for a crime you will commit in the future :)

    1. Oh dear! J, please don't scare me by quoting that movie.

      I wonder how can one be arrested before the crime is committed? Are there devices which read the mind and create witnesses?

  16. Have I ever plotted a murder? YES!
    But that was long ago, 45 years.
    No surprise about me.
    But YOU Susan Deborah? (Maybe I am
    commenting on the wrong blog--grin!)

    Your topic choices never are boring,
    ALWAYS raise some thought--thoughtful thought!
    PEACE, Dear Susan Deborah!

    1. Steve, don't go by my writings and appearance. They can be deceptive.
      Everyone thinks so atleast once in their life time, I reckon.

      Thanks for your kind words, Steve. You are a gem.

  17. Now I know just why I don't see you so often online, Susan! I know that some people can drive us absolutely insane with anger and sometimes it's not hard to understand why people are driven to do that!
