In 1881, a professor asked his student whether it was God who created everything that exists in the universe?
Student replied: Yes.
He again asked: What about evil? Has God created evil also?

The student got silent......
Then the student requested that may he ask a question?

Professor allowed him to do so.

Student asked: Does cold exist?
Professor said: Yes! Don't you feel the cold dear?
Student said: I'm sorry but you are wrong sir. Cold is a complete absence of heat....There is no cold, it is only an absence of heat.

Student asked again: Does darkness exist?
Professor said: Yes!
Student replied: You are again wrong sir. There is no such thing like darkness. It's actually the absence of light. Sir, we always study light and heat, but not cold and darkness.

Similarly, the evil does not exist. Actually, it is the absence of Love, Faith and True belief in God.

The name of the student was Vivekananda!
