Don't be Too Straight and Honest


Today I remembered two of my favorite Personalities - Chanakya (Kautilya) and Anton Chekov.  

It's due to one of the famous quotes by Chanakya which says :

A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first
Chanakya is an ancient Indian teacher, philosopher, economist, jurist, and royal advisor. He is traditionally identified as Kauṭilya or Vishnugupta, who authored the ancient Indian political treatise, the Arthashastra, a text dated to roughly between the 4th century BCE and the 3rd century CE. As such, he is considered the pioneer of the field of political science.

Similar to Chanakya a Short Story names " Julia" by the Russian writer Anton Checkhov, is perfectly enacted and presented by Doordarshan.

Since in my School Days I, like any other kid could be seen in front of the TV (Black & White) after Study overs.

In those days, there was Only One TV Channel - Doordarshan or DD.

Only Morning times and Evening Time we used to get the TV Signals.
