summary

Anil Ramdas
Sentimental story

.. a civilised society should be both sentimental and sensitive, not only in solid issues like honesty and justice, but also in the weaker and less visible experiences like dignity and respect. In ‘Sentimental Story’ Anil Ramdas talks about shared new global ethical issues. As rational creatures we choose honesty and justice as the basis for a civilised society. But, Ramdas stresses, by trying to work on these ‘solid’ issues we neglect fundamental matters like the preventing of humiliation and the assurance of self-respect. "Every human being has a right to respect. A life without respect is meaningless."
