Value for life is not the same for everyoneAs far as life is concerned there is no distinction n Indian Jurisprudence. All are equal irrespective of religion, caste, creed, rich or poor. But in reality, it is not the same. Life of a rich person has more value than the life of a poor person.
A few days back I was witness to a road accident. While a person, who appeared to be a villager, was crossing the road, he was knocked down by a two-wheeler. He suffered minor injuries with bruises on his body. The sad part is that everyone was shouting at him and showing improper gestures but no one cared to help him. Some of us took him to the side and gave him water and later, as he recovered, left the place.
I was wondering about the attitude of the people, just because he is poor, the fault comes on his head. If it was a rich or prominent person, the story would have been different. Why this double standard among people?
