Surjan Singh then proclaimed, ^ou people will have no difficulty in accepting that a man, who, even though he himself be hurt, still gets a poor peasant's full cart out of a bog and pushes it out of a canal, surely has courage in his heart and is the abode of self-confidence and generosity. Such a man would never torment the poor. His will is resolute who keeps his intellect firm. Even though he be deceived he will never shrink from compassion and duty.lf
