Evil Does Not Go Unpunished
For today’s generation of young people, it may appear idealistic if one says that evil does not go unpunished. However, unlike this statement, it may sound true. Consequences of evil actions eventually catch up with us. As is often the case the law and the society may not be able to punish the evildoer, but the conscience and the destiny in their own time punish the culprit. His punishment could be any form–the children of the culprit may not grow up as good citizens, there may be a disease in the family, the peace of the family life may be destroyed, etc. Nemesis has been known to catch up at the unlikeliest times. This punishment is much stiffer than what would have been granted by law had the person been caught. It is not for a period of a few months or years, it is life-long. The culprit suffers many times more than his victims. Someone has rightly said that those who live by the sword die by it. This sword could then be either of the law, the ignominy of a terrible and unnoticed death, or by slow pricking of the conscience, It is the law of the nature that if a crime is committed then the retribution is sure to follow.
