If this really reflects your requirements, regular expressions are not
a good choice in the first place. Instead, I would use some of
python's built in string functionality, like this:
>>> a = ['Rama is a good boy','Raghu is a good boy','Sita is a good girl','Ravana is a bad boy','Duryodhan is a bad guy','good is an acceptable nature while bad is unwanted nature in a person']
>>> for item in a:
if 'good' in item and 'bad' in item:
good is an acceptable nature while bad is unwanted nature in a person
