The News in Question shows that the World is same every where, and All that Glitters is not Gold even if calls itself America or Japan or India, with its due share of poverty, hunger and crime. It also tells us that the person in question is not a hardened criminal but was another "Raj Kapoor" of "Jagte Raho" who just came in to quench his Thirst (or Hunger of his Son), for the simple reason that he did not shoot the lone person attending the bank affairs. It also points towards the presence of mind one must show in such situations as done by her in those moments. Her courage to persuade him is commendable, but to guess, what moved (Her pleading, Fear of God, Legal Consequences or something else), the robber to change his intention may not be so simple. Yes you are right in saying "How people react.till you Face it.." because had she shrieked loud, and presuming that he was armed, he might have shot her dead point blank. .

I for one feel that this story is a plant by the Missionaris of Charity to impress the common man with the power of persuasion of Jesus. The real culprit in this situation is the social system where a father has to go tothis extent just to feed his starving son,.Deriving satisfaction with the throwing a twenty-dollar bill at the father is more an insult of man by man. Kindness can never be the real solution for such social inequities. In ancient Indian tales a King,before he sat down for meals, would have a public crier to announce and enquire if there was anybody who was going hungry. If there was one the King would feed him first and only then sit down for meals. If somebody stole for good it was taken as a sin of the monarch. While kindness and religious preching does have its place in society the first and foremost necessity is to ensure that nobody is tempted tocommit a sin just because he or his are hungry.

If your incomplete sentence ends something like "How people react you don't know until you are a father", I'd like to broaden the scope of the statement. It's just not being a father, it's just about a person who genuinely loves and cares about his beloved from any relation. It can be a loving son, a loyal friend, a responsible brother or anyone who loves someone very much, but is driven to fulfill their responsibilities against the law out of helplessness.
