276 TALKS ON (< AT THE FEET OF THE MASTER " it is your duty to report it; if you see a robbery,. then again it is your duty to give information. But with regard to a host of these minor things, it is not legally, in India, making yourself an accessory by not reporting it. I presume that may be the same here. I do not see that you could be considered an accessory to smuggling or to trespass, or to any smaller thing like that, but you certainly would be in regard to a murder or a robbery or anything of that sort. I think that is a matter for the application of common-sense. If you see anyone breaking any of those greater laws, it would be wrong for you to allow them to be broken without the protest which is involved in reporting the case. If it be a case of these quite minor regulations and bylaws, then it seems to me to be another matter; and, as I say, in India the thing is definitely laid down by statute, and therefore one may suppose that the Master Who spoke, being an Indian, knew that; so that I do not think that we need find any difficulty in that sentence through interpreting it as an in- junction to us to spy upon or to interfere with our neighbours. Remember that we have just been told that we are not to interfere with them unless they are doing harm to a third person. Then the third case: If you are placed in charge of another person in order to teach him, it may become your duty gently to tell him of his faults.
