Why do people forget this universal truth?Today I had to go to Delhi High Court to attend a Court case. While returning I noticed a very prominent lawyer and a very very important Minister of UPA regime was walking beside me. This very famous lawyer and politician was walking all alone carrying files and law books. However, I was astonished to see the attitude of people. Other lawyers and people present in the High Court were avoiding him. They didn't even speak a single word to him. Nobody even wished him Good Day. He was so forlorn.
Six years before, I saw the same Minister in a Government office surrounded by the top bureaucrats of the country and other political functionaries and busybodies. He had been very arrogant.
I have been thinking about these two contrasting images of the same man. Absence of power has completely finished the arrogance.
We must remember this universal truth. Power is everything. We are only puppets. Temporary power should not make us arrogant. People in powerful position should not misuse the temporary power.
