Introduction

* In the opinion of the house honesty takes you further than hypocrisy Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious This was the magic word used by Mary Poppins. A word such as honesty, which is equally as magical but, unfortunately can only be used in an Utopian world. Good morning! Respected chair persons and my esteemed opponents ,on an overall view when you take honesty on one side and hypocrisy on the other and when you go indepth and ponder over it I guarantee you that your defense will lean towards hypocrisy. We are all mature individuals and we should think realistically. Do you think that in today's corrupt, materialistic world honesty will help you attain your goals? Well, if you are going through life today with honesty, you are as foolish as 'a blind man searching for a black cat in a dark room, especially when there is no cat!!' Hypocrisy is what keeps you on your feet in the present world. ...read more.

I would have to be a hypocrite not to call myself one. In a way we are all hypocrites. Student-teacher relationships are fostered purely due to hypocrisy. If a teacher chides a student the student might have his or her own opinion about the teacher, which at all times might not be positive. But can that student freely express what he or she feels about the teacher to him/her. Certainly not!! A student cannot be completely honest with the teacher for the simple reason that the latter will be taken aback and get angry.

When Israel bombed Palastine, many countries believed that it was not justifiable on the part of Israel. But did any of them voice their opinion? No. This is for the simple reason that Israel is the pet nation of the United States and the latter being a super power makes matters extremely risky. ...read more.

Conclusion

He aimed at creating disharmony between the Hindu's and the Muslim's, and that disharmony that he created persists even today nearly 100 years after the partition of Bengal. Yes, Curzon was a hypocrite. But he got what he wanted didn't he? My worthy opponents might quote Gandhi and Mother Teresa, But in a country whose current population is over 1 billion they should quote examples in thousands and not just one or two. I love to read books on Harish Chandra and other such men whose armour was their honesty but sadly there are so few books. The late Ambani once said in one of his interviews that, for him even the pune's and attender's of government offices are as important to him as the officers themselves. Is he not a hypocrite? But yet can there be any doubting his success? Mahatma Gandhi, is one in a million. No, billion. He called a spade a spade. Hat's of to his honesty. But, with all due respect, gratitude to this legend of a man his path is unfortunately the pathway to success. ...read more.
