    It is to create the contrast in this life. and as essential as air.

    Imagine life without death, Joy without fear, love without hate.... none of those things would be possible if they didn't meet their adversaries. Simply, one cannot exist without the other.

    Each and every thing(product) in this world will have its own advantage and disadvantage.

    Two different perspectives or two different views or two different ways of ONE issue or ONE subject or ONE idea or even two different ways of looking at the same ONE thing.

    It doesn't necessarily means that they are opposite, however they could be, or one idea is good and the other one is bad or one is good and the other is evil.

    This is about dilemma, when you are faced with some difficult decision and you don't know which way to go, left or right. Both sides has a value, but you can not have both at the same time, you must to choose.

    The idiom simply put implies that a subject, an idea or a thing have two sides and they are very closely related although they seem different It means there are • two different perspectives • two viewpoints • both aspects • both facets • congruently following are some examples Creativity and freedom are two sides of the same coin.

    Violent behaviour and deep insecurity are often two sides of the same coin.
