Rajat Gupta

Fallen heroes are still heroes. The fact that heroes are not infallible proves that they are also human and can sometimes make mistakes. So is it fair that we treat them as untouchables after the mistake?

How many of us can keep a hand on heart and say that we have never made a mistake, broken a law when no one was watching, or pushed the boundary of our own version of truth or integrity.

A minor infraction is still an infraction. How do you think the world would react if all of these infractions were to appear on the front pages of newspapers around the world. How would you want the world to react to that? Would you like it that the world forget all the good things that you did and treat you like a common criminal if you really through that the infraction was just pushing at the boundaries and had no mal intent or had a moment of weakness.

The law should and will take its own course. It must, to discourage others from doing the same mistake. However that does not mean that the rest of us have stopped respecting or admiring you for what you have done aside from this infraction.

Writing this for Rajat Gupta for all the good that he has done for countless that he has not even personally met.
