There are people who go for thefts to have money for their food and basic needs. But there are people who do stealing for accumulating crores of money. Such people will be in society as important people and catching them is very difficult as there are thieves in Law and order department also. Like this, we see many thieves enjoying their lives with plenty of money and respect in society. We can have sympathy on thieves who are going into that profession for making their living but we should not have any sympathy on the people who are stealing others money but still enjoying the respect and power in society.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Knowledge is power.
