We can pretend for sometime but not long enough. I cannot think how pretense can protect you. You can pretend to be someone else but for how long. Sooner or later you will be found out and then you will be in greater trouble. It is best to be your usual self and appear according to your nature, a little better than what you are.

Once I was alone in the house one day ( which invariably never happens) and there was a knock on the door at some hour in the night I called out to someone in the house a male name actually no one was there as I told you and told him to see who was at the door the person vamoosed from the scene. A clear example of false pretence for protection indeed!!!

The unquestionable right to self protection is always valid, even if it means falsities, after all who else is going to protect you or think about it as seriously as you !
If a false pretension gives your attacker or enemy an image of a stronger person , you may be saved from being attacked !
However this is only a temporary solution and one gets evaluated in actuality soon. So better to face the harsh truth and learn real self defense techniques !

It is not good in most of the circumstances. It always comes to haunt you.

Taking help of false pretence, brings us more trouble which we may not be able to judge at particular moment...nor it morally or ethically right...I wud never go for bank loan if I am not 100% certain that they wud be paid off fully, without defaulting in any of the due dates of EMI.....

Supposing ur mother is severely ill for quite some time n u have exhausted all ur casual leave . Stay at home is a must to get ur mother treated . Now only option left to u is to take HPL (half pay leave ) for one month . If applied n approved only half month's salary is payable by ur employer . However there is a clause in the leave that if u produce a certificate by a medical practicenor to the effect that u urself were sick for the month (30days) ur HPL will be deducted for 60 days n u will be paid salary for the whole month . In this situation its wise to look for a false certificate by a doctor and get full month's salary from ur employer on producing the said ( false ) certificate .This is coz u need money as well as physical presence at home to serve mother in a better way .
