    I don't blame anyone here. Just need to ask one question to all of you. Had you been on that place would you have stopped ? Well you might say yes now but i would like to see the practical example of that. Its easy to say here but when the fear of being cheated or being harassed by police makes people feel stay out of it. No doubt why people are not stopping here. How would they know if the help is for real. Sorry for being rude. But thats the fact.. :(


    I would have definitely stopped had I been present there, and I am not saying it for the sake of it, I have helped people earlier in incidents that happened before me. Even my brother who works until late in the night has on several occasions gone out of his way to help people involved in accidents. All I can is probably we have been raised right and we learn from examples. I have also seen my parents go out of their ways to help people, especially my father. I remember one night during my school days, my father once chased a thief who was trying to break and enter into a neighbour's house. He must have ran after the guy for almost 3 kilometres who escaped because he disappeared into woods. People learn from their parents, nowadays i see parent teaching their children to keep away from spots where something has happened. I think this is becoming a general conditioning of the majority of population 'when you see something has happened, just run away'! I wonder what will they think when something happens to them? Will they remember the unfortunate family whom they did not help? :blink:


    Then i would say you are one of those few who go out of their way to help others. What i have experienced till now that people will only help others when they feel themselves not at risk for anything. People just like to play safe and thats the general mentality. I hope there are more people like you around to make India a better place.


    Thanks Puneet! If only more people thought of others for a change, the world would be a better place. And i actually despise the whole lot of people who do nothing other than click Like buttons on facebook, post comments on various sites, but do nothing by themselves, and we cannot blame them for that, because they just sit glued to the computer for 2o hours out of 24 so how can do they anything? And the number of such people is quite high!


    Yes and that includes us to some extent. People will only support to the point they are comfortable. They won't come forward when they have to play hard but it will be realized only at the time when they need that help and thats why the circle is drawn. One has to draw a tangent to come out of it.


    :) Very interesting and useful discussion. All friends who participate in this discussion will promise to help persons who are in problem. Puneet if you help any one God will help you, so never think about police or any one.

    While reading your post Kalyani, I am reminded of an incident that happened in our neighborhood sometimes back. A young girl fell of the scooter trying to avoid a football that came her way hurting her leg, in fact she had a fracture. Her father was sitting at the back and the scooter had fallen on him and on the girls leg. Except for one small boy who tried to give a hand, no one was helping them but standing and watching . Hearing the crash I and my maid ran to the road and helped them and brought them home and later her brother came in a car and took them.The most shocking comment came from my neighbor while I was helping them asking me not to take them home since it may become a police case, because it was her son who had thrown the foot ball.The children had been warned several times not to play on the road...


    :) well done Usha ji, yours deed is great.

    We are living in a heartless society no one felt responsible of intimating to police. This is really a bad situation in our country.

    Actually what I did is the least one can do in a situation like that, what is really shocking is that no one wants to do even that little bit and even discourage the few who are willing to help !

    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    Ho insensitive people are in this country!!! :blink: This is what happens in most cases, when someone tries to help the victims, there are great number of cowards around who will try to discourage them from providing help! And what message is your neighbour trying to pass to her own child? That helping others is wrong? What will she think if HER child and husband were involved in something like this and there is no good samaritan like you to help them? Instead of discouraging you from helping, she should instead have made sure that her son should also have given a hand to you when you helped them in your home. This way, she could have made best use of the opportunity to take account and responsibility of his actions!

    Exactly my thoughts ! In fact I told her as much, that what she was doing was not going to help anyone - either her son, herself and we as neighbors who have to deal with such attitude ! She is setting a bad example to everyone around !

I think this attitude is why we are seeing so high increase in horrible crimes against little girls and children! Is it not possible that there may have been at least one person who must have heard those pitiful cries for help in during so many incidents? But since that one person chose to ignore lest he fall in trouble, someone's life got ruined!

    Indians are totally insensitive to others feelings other than those who belong to their own family, this is something that I have realised. This kind of selfish and opportunistic attitude is at the root cause of most social problems! In Bangalore a house was robbed in broad day light, with the lady being stabbed seven times and her two year old son thrown on the wall.The neighbors heard the noise and thought that the husband was beating up the wife and the child so kept mum .The result was that the child survived but cannot hear and the brain was partially damaged and the woman died after a few days ! What can one say? On the one hand people want to know everything that goes in other peoples house but when there is actual need for help they wash their hands off...

    That is so horrible!! I feel very strongly that if proved, such people who were witnesses to such horrible incidents but chose not to help should also be punished severely! :blink:
