Thank you Hariji for your nice reply. But this above what you said I feel you have misunderstood me. I feel, given this present day post- truth context, your snippet is very timely and warrants a robust discussion about truth and its nature. I have enjoyed the inputs and observations from you and the other posters on this thought provoking thread. If my earlier post led you to conclude otherwise it is my error. What are your views on this story of the caw and the butcher given the present day context around us?
