How many men and women like them are there in this world? The concept of truth sometimes becomes controversial in the whorl of philosophical quibbling. Admittedly, there is difference between truth and fact. Truth is often hidden behind the facts.
The courts often punish a criminal on the basis of facts, without bothering to unearth the truth behind the facts, the truth of the circumstances and discriminatory social and economic order which compelled the person to commit a crime.
But the courts have to administer the laws and the laws’ have loopholes and are sometimes biased. The result is that sometimes an innocent person is punished but a real culprit goes scot-free.
We should resort to truthful speaking and truthful living in our lives, as Guru Nanak Dev had preached to mankind.
