Often we tend to sympathize the sufferer. What about the other side?
Situation 1 : A criminal is being hanged to death. Of course limelight is given to the victim. Have we wondered what the hangman goes through?
Situation 2 :A rape victim being tried. Habituated, we obviously think of who performed this horrendous act and how he should be punished or what compensation should be given to the victim.We never think about what caused the man to rape the victim. Survey says that women themselves are responsible for 60% of the rape cases taking place.
Situation 3:Now if we have a witness for a murder scene(For eg. the Jessica Lal case) .The witness,according to the law is asked to assemble in order to speak out the truth.In many cases we notice that the witness happens to shy away from revealing the truth. So all of us jump ahead saying the witness should be punished, he is cruel,heartless,useless,etc. But we seldom think about what the witness is going through. Put yourself in the position of the witness. Would you actually go up and speak the truth? Would you even assemble at the court? It is very obvious that our personal decisions never remain personal and are always influenced by our friends,relatives,or our dearest ones.And remember 'Practice what you preach'.Ciao!
