It is a known fact that everything happens for our own good. All depends upon the perception of the individual. An optimist always views the glass as half full rather than half empty. An optimist views the positive repercussions of every event. But some events or incidents that occur in our lives are dubious and ambiguous. Such ambiguous events have positive repercussions only but we fail to recognize them at first. Any such event which happens for our good but we cannot make it out initially is said to be a blessing in disguise. Any event which is good and brings fortune is said to be a blessing from God. The word “disguise” indicates that the event is so difficult to make out or recognize at an early stage because of lack of transparency. In the words of Slavoj Zizek, “What if the Soviet intervention was a blessing in disguise? It saved the myth that if the Soviets were not to intervene, there would have been some flowering authentic democratic socialism and so on. I'm a little bit more of a pessimist there. I think that the Soviets - it's a very sad lesson - by their intervention, saved the myth.”
