Few years back I read an article in Kumudam Magazine which exhibited Peoples mental attitude and their behaviour in public places. Kumudam publishers placed a small temporary shop selling Bananas and no one to attend; just a board stating the price and a Large Photo of Father of the Nation (Mahatma Gandhi). Kumudam staffs watched over, did all the people correctly paid? Or did they cheat as there is no person to look after?
But to their astonishment all the purchasers honestly paid for the banana and put the money in the cash box. Kumudam published this scenario in their weekly magazine. That the Photo of Mahatma Gandhi is the sole reason for the sincerity
I witnessed the same kind of scenario, a person scurrying along a main road with a cigarette in his hand, all of a sudden he stood still, his hands went back, head drooped like as he did a mistake before a Master, and walked slowly away – on that place is pasted Cinema Poster of MGR starrer film!
Another one happened a few months back, a person whose head cleanly shaved and carrying a yellow bag (goes without saying a Villager) was nearing a Jeep a MGR sticker on the Windshield and ADMK flag on the Hood. He did a salute and kissed the flag as a revered object. Their goodness of Character left by Mahatma and MGR creates the propensity of Goodness in human.
