A friend of mine migrated from a distant village in India to New Delhi few years back. It took him quite some time to "adjust" to the city and its lifestyle. He wrote to me recently:
"If we can make money and become influential by telling lies and doing immoral things, why did our parents teach us to speak the truth and do what is right?"
Worthy of a huge international, perhaps universal discussion.
Though he doesn't know much about "Bush" as yet.
