There have been lots of instances in History, wherein a superior being has lost to a mediocre one,just by the act of pure chance.
A loser doesn’t necessarily mean is a failure.He could have been an unfortunate victim of mishaps.And likewise, a winner needn’t be a flawless personification of abundant talent, he could be a product of synchronised favourable events.
In many cases the amount of efforts put in by a so called loser,is very slightly less than that of the winner.The reward for which is not very consoling,and adds to the feeling of being called a loser.
In true sense, the amount of sincere efforts put in should be the gauge of deciding the rewards.
But, this is a hypothetical criterion, as we are programmed genetically to take events as winning and losing, which is never an absolute in the very relative frame.
