The things people do are to your liking or not; and hence they are labelled as good or bad. People have reasons for what they do. If only the reasons are different, the things they do also are different. So, address these reasons. And you will find people doing different things or doing things differently. So, my appeal to you all is to understand people. And be a good human being."
