Forgive and forget

A few days back, I happened to see a public service advert/ message/ whatever on the 60th anniversary of the Indian constitution (1950-2010) wherein Gulzar talked about the document having protected his “hakk” of freedom of expression. I guess he no longer remembers Aandhi.

    A bit off topic but:

    How can you deal with people like this? I try to tell my
    personal friends and family that right and wrong do exist on their own independently of our perceptions. But they still stick to their pragmatism.

    I don’t generally discuss all this with them but its just that some of their actions are such that I can’t agree with them at all so I try to convince them of the ethical dilemmas.

      # “How can you deal with people like this?”
      With great care. Point out and move on.

      In the end though, mere words don’t carry much weight; one’s actions betray one’s real beliefs. Pragmatic beliefs and actions based on such beliefs is one thing, believing in A and acting according to B is duplicity. In either case, one must take care to isolate oneself from the effects of such actions.
