Honesty and integrity are eternal truths of lifeWe often see so much of hatred, so much of lack of integrity and honesty. This does not just not taking any bribe and being honest. Honesty and integrity should extend to moral values too. Nicknaming of political opponents, deriding their economic status and so on have become so bad in taste and the public discourse has taken a turn for the worse. A pronounced communal agenda has been put in place against minorities and the most violent speeches of the ruling party members are being, very, unfortunately, lapped up by sections of the media.
Yet, we do observe that only honesty and integrity can always win. Even in politics. Those who work for the larger good and have the welfare of the society at heart, are still admired. Names like Narayanamurthy, Azim Premji, Ratan Tata are examples. Even in politics, we still have some good leaders whose record of integrity is there for all to see. We, the common people of India have a duty. If we pay all our taxes, show all our income that gets credited in banks from various sources, do our bit to protect the environment and so on, we will have done a great service to the nation.
Let us do that just.
