Presently, I am at a place where majority ( not all) of people are honest, law abiding, non manipulative ( with word or behavior)  and  are just decent humans who do care for their country and other people.  It so interesting when we talk or see them behave .



1) Believe it or not, I rarely seen anyone cross the road without a traffic light , even if there is No Police!


+

What a coincidence.

I also, once, visited a nearby country and saw a bunch of dogs, crowded by the road. I was with one of local friends talking near by.
The road was busy with all sort of vehicles running here and there.
Time to time, I noticed some dogs cross the road and moving to the opposite side. But to mu surprise, being dogs, all of them waited near the pedestrian crossing until the lights turn Green and then crossed the road politely along the crossing.

I asked my friend about that;
"How have these dogs learn to cross the road like that?"

Being a local living there, he was confident in his answer;
"Those who didn't cross like that don't exist anymore!"

YY,  I wanted a twist from you and you didn't exactly disappoint Smile

Some notes from this end

1) You seems to be fascinated with Dogs these days

2) This fictitious land of yours in the story am sure is not Vietnam, China or South Korea.
  ( am sure many will l know why I guess ).

3)  I like the punchline ending

   "Those who didn't cross like that don't exist anymore!"

    But what if the majority stopped and allowed the stray  dogs to cross !
The whole situation would be different !

Cheating is everywhere in sport, once you get the winning mode, nothing can stop him.. But they should be given second chance.

That is how Justin Gatlin came back strongly and beat Usain Bolt at the end..

when criminals are released from prisons on parole, or on Wesak poya day, sportsmen should be given second, third chances.

after all they are not criminals..

I posted this video  for a  deeper matter exploration  as explained in my original post which
essentially needs to be discussed.


But on the Ball Tampering subject let visit the reality ...

1) For such cases, ICC regulation is  to give 3 demerit points and

a) Fine them from their match fee
b) and or Ban such people on the first incident for 1 match ONLY
 


2)  Yet Australia as a country, took it upon themselves to impose  the Heaviest  ban seen on Cricket for such an act . The 2 big name Cricketers involved are banned for  1  year  with further captaincy bans and other reprimands

3) In 2016, Faf du Plessis ( South Africa captain ) was also found ball tampering  against Australia and only was fined 100 percent of his match  fee ( no bans).  

4) In 2016 our own Sri Lankan, Dasun Shanaka was fined 75% of the match fee for Ball Tampering.  I don't think Sri Lanka or Cricket Authority  or Fans did anything to
impose anything more ?

In this case,

* Smith , Warner and Bancroft  was identified and severely punished for  their wrong doing
* the whole of Australia  dejected it  and gave them hell  ( which is a punishment itself)
* most importantly Smith and Warner has admitted  with genuine regret via public statement  to
 sincerely apologized to fans, aussie cricket  and parents.

Did  other people do it ?  It takes guts for someone to come out and Admit their mistake like they did even after  being punished.  

Humans make mistakes.. Some cheat people at a bigger scale with proof and yet they escape with obviously no confession or punishment.  As far as I can see, Australia  ( whether we like them or not) gave the biggest punishment  to these guys in History of the game for such an act.

I guess there are different ways to interpret and view things.

ps:  I am not fan of overall Aussie cricket team behavior over the decades either.  What happened during Murali time left almost a permanent dent on me. But we can't say every Aussie cricketer is bad due to the behavior of some . Most importantly when one of our  own  guys did something similar, what was the situation?

Machan,

It's other way round.

Not developed nations become trusty and disciplined;
But,
when you become trusty and disciplined, the nation become developed.

Why Singapore became developed was because they got disciplined or were forced to be so long time ago.

Discipline sometimes cones inside out; other times injected from outside in.

Either way, it has consistently been working for nations.

A short answer with the limited time available:
Dear SLS, the foreigners appeared to be westerners, not Chinese or similar.
The feeling I got was they were scared, probably thinking I would misguide them or cheat in some way. They may have had bad experiences.

Regarding the ball tampering:
Mistakes are different to committing wrongs knowing they are wrong.
Yes, there shall be other chances when a wrong is done, to correct it; isn't that the whole purpose of re-birth? Even God endorses second or multiple chances.

FOR YOUR WEEKEND READING/THINKING


To be the first or not : or to push or not push

Recently an  elderly Sri Lankan lady accompanied me to this attraction. At this place, there is a wooden Tower one needs to climb to see nice views from the top.

I wanted climb the tower  to take photos ( the lady wasn't able to and btw I like photography and am not sure there are others who does so for a hobby here?)

The way up and down the tower  only had 1 path. It was a busy day with lot of kids and visitors.  So I patiently waited at the bottom of the tower  ( maybe 5-10 mins) until  I got my turn to climb up.

After I came down , the lady told me

" I saw you waiting patiently forever. Why wait?  You need to push and hurry. You would have got to the top lot sooner. That what you do in life too "udata yanna" ( go to the the top).

I told the lady ,

" Did you notice how orderly most of these people are?  
 I know if I did it in our country it might be not wise.
 I just   don't feel like pushing these people . We all went to the top and it worked
out fine right? Besides that we are not in big hurry are we ? "

Yes this really happened. Maybe you can analyze incident and the depth here?  


ps :  Will not be surprised if no one comments or someone deviates from the depth of the message to  pick on something else that was written hehe Razz

Hehe this part so far has come true !

As same as I have written to your other post the same is applied here. people will be only interested when they see a benefit, most of the time. Else they just on their own way. I don't know whether you are a catholic religion person but there is a nice story called ' the good Samarithan's story.

after reading your post I remembered this proverb. 'Short cuts can bring you to the top but it won't keep you their'. Not sure if it applies correctly here but sounds like.
