One of my friend was talking about how my other friend lost his mobile during a travel in Mumbai local. It was quite expensive phone, so it broke his heart and he went into sadness cycle. We felt sad about it. Complaint filed with police and search is on. We know there would be no results.
My Friend : “They (police) are aware of thieves. They get their commission and they stay silent. This happens everywhere. That’s how things are.” He was feeling very sad and disappointed about it.
And the very next moment, he was talking about how another friend got benefit of around 20k while buying a new phone. It was quite expensive one and somebody was ready to sell it at a very less budget. I asked how that is possible. He said it might have been a stolen one. I said then we shouldn’t buy such items. He said, well if you get a wonderful mobile at such a low price, why wouldn’t you buy it. If I was there, I would go to ATM and pay him in cash at the very moment.
He felt so proud about it.
I was like “otay”. That sounds duality in place at the very moment. We said goodnight and left.
I was thinking about how to opposite things can simultaneously exist at the same time giving two different emotions. How we hate the thieves when our items get stolen and why we foster buying stolen items at the same time, if we are the one getting the beneficiary.
