Chanakya, an Indian Scholar was not mistaken to remark:
‘Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first”. Being honest and morally upright is a kind of human attributes liked by many, pursued by a few and practiced by even littler.
Today, that once predominant quote “Honesty is the best policy” remain in ruins and has no scope to win a place in the heart of 21st century humans. This is so fearful that one day, another generation will either hear nothing about it or read honesty as the worst policy.

This same Earth which is approximately 4.5 billion years old has undergone a series of mutation leading to a serious miscarriage of human values. It is intoxicated with a false belief that has consequently spearheaded the corrosion of human ethics and principles at a lightning speed. Being honest and speaking truth is scary and petrifying at this moment of time because the truth is always attacked. This is not surprising because the truths are not always a sweet melody. Truth may not be always a soft ear-bud that we want to entertain through the tunnel of our auditory canal.
Thus, it is so miserable to think about this contamination in this so-called revolutionizing world. Human mind is now polluted beyond compare and no remedy can rescue it. The acceptance of wrong and abusive morals and values are mushrooming in our society. The adolescents are exposed to the ailment of such disasters further beefing up the unceasing cloning drama. After few years of time, I believe, that the world will see being straight and truthful is a human accepted crime because the world is already bowed by the cheat and crooks.
