Never hurt anyone in this fashion!This is a true story. No names are mentioned to protect confidentiality. In a particular private sector bank, which is one of the fastest growing in the country, a very young man became very friendly with another girl, working in the same grade in the same branch. Since this friendship extended to either of them visiting the other's houses, many colleagues starting thinking that they had different ideas.
The man made it a point to go all out to be friendly, but made it clear too, that it was a mere friendship. Over a period of one year, the girl's family started considering him a big bore and showed some signs of displeasure. The man totally cut off and merely stopped with saying hello to the girl. He got married within five months. After marriage, the man totally stopped even saying hello.
The girl expressed her anguish. The boy said that it was their family who considered him a big bore. The man did not budge an inch. The girl became depressed. The wife of the girl, who was broadminded, stepped in, and made matters smooth. He made her husband talk a little bit with the girl.
Was the man justified in doing what he did? Is he justified in hurting the girl in this fashion?
