    honesty

    Hi All,

    Only few of my writtings are edited here. I guess its always lengthy. So this time I am just sending a small paragraph. Please let me know the grammar mistakes, better sentences or any other thing could improve on my writting..

    ---------------

    Dishonesty can never bring happiness. I can remember an incident of my childhood. I and my close friend were going to Pune, India to give my MCA entrance exam. Her father was with us as we couldnít go alone to the new city. We both saw her father paying just for two tickets. When conductor came he pretended as if he had lost one of his tickets. Both the conductor and her father kept fighting in a loud voice for almost an hour and created a stressful environment in coach of the train we were sitting. It was hard to focus on our notes which we brought to revise in the train on the way to Pune. My friend was a brilliant student and it was surprising when I didnít see her name in the result. She told me later that she wasnít able to focus while writing her exam as she was still thinking of her fatherís act of stealing the ticket in the train. Her father might have reserved a seat in Pune university if he had paid just one more ticket. Somehow I believe that money we save by dishonesty or stealing does not come to us at all. It seems to be hard to be honest in this era but then itís also hard to be without disease which comes along with dishonesty. Itís totally up to chose the path intelligently.

    Thanks & Regards
