Is honesty just a matter of opportunityI feel so. I hope you will also feel so if you come to know know the following inhuman and unexplainable shocking act by our 'civilised human beings'.
Just a while ago I read shocking news headlined "Delhi Crowd Loots Mangoes worth Thousands from Street Vendor". (source: the quint.com). The news is also there in other media sites too. I feel ashamed about my fellow human beings in Delhi.
A street fruit vendor named Chote in Delhi's Jagatpuri area was looted of his mangoes worth about thirty thousand rupees. The matter happened like this. Citing some problem near that area, some people asked the vendor to move his cart from there. While he was moving his cart the bystander crowd just pounced upon the residual mangoes left in a crate . I am at a loss for words as I saw the video clip of the incident along with the report. The irony was that I could see in the clip people calling others to come and take away. I just can't believe such a thing happens.
On one side we are making loud 'blah blahs' in social media and other media on need to help the small business people and local traders, however when we get a 'safe' opportunity this is what we do.?
Hypocrisy is thy name Human! ? Can't we not then say that honesty is just tongue twist and a matter of opportunity only?
P.S: (I wish the story is not true, and will feel relieved if someone later claims it was only a prank video)
