The statement it self tells that if will be cut whether we are honest or not. So being honest can help us to remain in the hearts of people. But if you are not honest and lived for so many years, what the use of that life. So according to me honesty is the best policy forever.

According to the topic I think a person should be honest but not too honest. Being too honest can lead him to problems. He/She must react depending upon the situations, circumstances and the end results. I totally agree with Kiran that although straight trees are cut first but they achieve "Height" before that which ordinary trees aren't able to.

Of course honesty is the best policy, but some times we have to give up our wishes while being honest, and in my view in the present world even though we are honest the others won't be like that with us and we face some problems because of them, so I think there is no need to be very honest always.

Hi, honesty is really best policy honest people always wins and they are remembered in life and also after life. The history is witness of this that there are numbers of people who were honest and now they are considered as successful people. Our nation believe in SATYAMEVA JAYETE (Truth alone prevails). So we should be honest first with our-self then with others.

Yes we should be honest. We know that honest person suffers a lot in many cases. But because of this we would stop saying truth. Honesty is the best policy. Don't think of the sufferings just be honest and say truth. Don't fear of being a honest person.

One must be honest it is true the you will suffer when you are honest But never mind that sufferings are all part of life & it will be a lesson for us so that we will become successful in our life.

Yeah I agree being honest is important but that does not mean you need to be as simple & straightforward as a child. Honesty can also be viewed in other frame as not cheating someone you are working with or living with, being honest does not mean you always have to bow down to others command or have your own loss for the benefit of others.

An honest man is the noblest work of god. But this is rare. As a man born honest cannot remain so throughout his life. He has to use his brains when he is surrounded by 80% dishonest people. And from that point he is regarded as dishonest. Lastly I would like to say that in a country like India dishonesty is truly respected. Being honest here is either a joke or a slang and you are forced to bend yourself.

"What is too much of Honesty". Honesty is either there or not there. If you have to compromise, then it is simply not honesty. The path is definetely difficult for honest people. But should this be compromised for short lived success. To acheive a goal , if you have to be dishonest and bend your way ,then it cannot be called just being less honest. Rather besides being dishonest, one is now selfish too. Why dont the honest lot beleive that they are made this way by Almighty Lord and if He has desired it to be like that, then there has to be a purpose. Maybe, these people come ahead of time and indicate that a change is certainly going to be there - "From less honest people to higher percentage of honest people".

Hi, No doubt Honesty is the best policy but it makes you to suffer sometimes, if you want to suffer, be honest and for the sufferings definitely you may be paid in the long run. Further a tree can't be compared with human being because a tree whether it is straight or curved has to cut or fell down, it is rule of nature, a truth. One must be honest sufferings are part of life, no suffering means no taste in life. Sufferings make us understand what life actually means from ground level. Best of luck for honest people. !

Yes in the present scenario One should not be too honest. Because daily in the newspapers we are seeing many incidents happening across the country and the world. Recently additional district collector of Malegoan was burnt to death for resisting the pilferage of kerosene. Binayak sen was sent to jail for fighting for the poor. Nine RTI activists were killed for demanding the truth. So like this there are hundreds and thousands to list, But in all these cases they were facing lot of troubles for being good and honest. Recently one advocate was killed by some people for fighting for the right cause.

In fact ours is not a society, we are living in a termite nest eating at ourselves. So in this so called society there is no place for The Honest, The good and The sincere persons. Also sincere Police officers could not work in some areas due to the pressures from higher officials.

Unless and until some measures are taken our society won't prosper. And our honesty won't find place in this termite nest.

Thank you!

We are living in an artificial world, full of corruption and materialistic people. So i don't think being too honest in such a phase would let one survive. Inorder to be successful and achieve the highest goals in one's life it would definitely a correct step if one has to be dishonest in some way of his/her goal. I won't say this thing has to be followed always but yes when required it should be. Being completely honest and not achieving what one believes to have rather ruining one's own dreams is not good. A slightly bent tree has an advantage to survive more than a straight tree.

Honesty is a positive thing and lying is negative. But we all have this perception that honesty will always lead to good and lying will always result in bad. The decision to be honest or to lie should depend upon the end result that your truth or lie may result into.

I think the topic should be seen as applying the honesty towards achieving goals. When we are aiming at our goals, our culture tells us to follow honesty. But we should not be too honest that will come as hindrance to achieve the goal. I mean sometimes there needs to make compromise which will not foul with our honesty but make a way towards our target. Sometimes too much honesty is seen as stubbornness.
We call a person successful who knows to how to back a step to move two step forward. That is the reason a car has the back gear. It is nothing with too much honesty. Infact in that case it is the showing off honesty. We should be honest to our ethics and at the same times careful about our goal to reach so that it would never stop in half way like the straight trees cut first.

It is a good thing that a person should be honest because honesty is the best policy, not for limited time but for ever but sometimes it becomes a bottleneck. It doesn't mean that we should leave honesty but we should show our honesty in a different manner according to the time, situation and before the person whom we are going to be treated by. We should also be diplomatic in nature as well as honest according to the situation and requirement while coming across a person so that we wouldn't be cheated by him.

In other words we can say we should be honest but careful. We should be like straight trees but solid rather than soft for not to be cut easily.

We should be Honest from heart. It should be practical but that does not mean that we should be dishonest. Rather if see great people, then you will find that they were always honest with their work and dream. Also, though Straight Trees cut first. It achieves that 'HEIGHT' before cutting down which ordinary grass wont achieve!.

According to me being too honest wont take you anywhere infact that will be a obstacle in your path. Honest people create the problem for themselves and now a days if you say something to someone may be that is for there advantage but people would mind it.

As far as it is with in the family thats ok but once you cross the place you live don't be so straightforward that will put you in trouble. Now there is no one who follows honesty very religously but i would must say we can follow it to some extent.

Again i want to add. The topic is that ONE SHOULD NOT BE TOO HONEST..I want to emphasize on the word "TOO HONEST". I do agree that one should be honest but not too honest.
As Ninad himself said that people take undue advantage of yours. Than why would let others to take undue advantage of us.Even as he said that by our cleverness we can avert such things but I want to let you understand as the topic itself explained it that if there are two trees-one is straight and another is slant then obviously the straight tree would be cut first. So if we are a little bit slant (I mean, not toooooo honest) we can serve better for our self.

No offenses if I said something wrong.

Honesty is the single quilty that will lead you to be successful. Some people may feel that "other people take undue advantege of our honesty" which is actually true. But buy one's cleaverness you may avoid such things.According to me keep your honesty for life nothing will trouble you. Honest people are in more demand & they get more respect & honour.

I totally substitute the Shiv's words that no one on this earth is 100 % honest. Even it doesn't matter who is honest or too honest or on the other way round we can manipulate like so who is corrupted or most corrupted. As in the topic of dicsussion we tantamount an honest person with a tree, i would comment that wheather a tree is straight or slant it is doom to cut as per the need of demand/situation.

So it outrightly defy from my side that one should be honest at all the time because ultimately we are also to be slaughted one day though we are honest. So to sustain in this canny world or to grip your power at your hand we should be artful enough to maneuver in words provided that it should not be in an illegal way.

So for a betterment of us one should PLAY SAFE AND BE CAUTIOUS.

Honesty is good thing but show of honesty is not good. For example if you find a ten rupees note on road and you asking everyone that it belongs to him. Suddenly one person said that is mine. You would give it to him. Later you find that it doesn't belong to him. Then you feel regret on your honesty. Because you are unable to bring it to right owner.

It is always better to speak the truth because if you are consistent with this policy, others will be afraid of you. This is because if your heart is pure, persons with impure mind find it difficult to hide their bad deeds and thoughts. For example, G.R.Viswanath, the former cricket player when he was the captain of a match played between India and England (MCC) asked Taylor, who was given out by the umpire, to play saying the umpire erred in his judgment.

Many people laughed at Viswanath for being so honest. In that match Taylor hit a century and India lost the match and the failure was attributed to Viswanath's generosity. But fourteen year's later, Wisden cricket club recalling this match and spirit of fair play award was conferred on G.R.Viswanath. His honesty was rewarded after 14 years!Likewise Kapil Dev was charged of fixing cricket match by a former President of BCCI.

In an interview given to BBC, Kapil Dev virtually wept which was shown on BBC TV. When truth broke out it was not Kapil Dev he was awarded the "Cricketer of the Century" of which we all Indians are proud of. Ultimately truth alone trimphs. "satyameva Jayate"

Hi, What is meant by over honesty or less honesty? Honesty is complete truthfulness to oneself, not deceiving themselves and others. There is nothing less or more in that. It is full. It is a bad concept that we have to change according to the times. The values we had can still be followed.
