Zamana badal gaya hai yasmin !!
ye sab ab kitabon ki baat bhar rah gayee hai
Till few years ago.. who so ever was honest..used to earn atleast regards and praise from the society.
now..situation is from bad to worse..
In present times.. 'honest' means 'bewkoof' and predominantly.. only those talk of honesty..who do not get chance or opportunity to be dishonest.
Thats the unfortunate aspect of todays' life..but its a fact ..no fiction

I would like to begin by telling a story.

Three boys were bragging about their Fathers: The first one said, My Dad can shoot an arrow and make it to the target before the arrow hits it. The second boy said, Well, my Dad can shoot a deer with a gun 500 yards away and be there to catch the deer before it hits the ground. The third boy said, That's nothing. My Dad works for the city, He can punch out at 5:00 in the afternoon and be home by 4:00!

Kin Hubbard is quoted as saying: honesty pays, but it don't seem to pay enough to suit some people.

Mark Twain has stated: honesty is the best policy--when there is money in it.

I have a question for you: IS HONESTY THE BEST POLICY?

Not it IS it WAS. Now time has changed so are the policies. If one is honest he has to struggle and suffer for livelihood.
