these forces gain ascendancy, man cares neither morality nor rationality. Lured
by the eluding charms, he becomes blind to the realities and turns a savage with
unquenchable hunger for power and pelf. No scruples could abstain him from doing
the deadliest crime. Murder and bloodshed that stagger the ordinary people by
their ghastliness are nothing for him, perhaps as . easy and desirable as
drinking 'coca-cola', during the summer. Ironically, the draught instead of
quenching the thirst, intensifies it to a million-fold making him resemble the Melton's
Satan to metamorphose himself into any shape from the sublimes to the vilest.
Such a over-vaulting ambition ruins the possessor first, and he hesitates not to
betray and his nearest and dearest, next. In order to reach his target, he
hesitates not to betray his own allies, or the innocent and unsuspecting
assistants. For him, the end is more important than the means. He indulges in
nefarious activities and encourages such traits in others for his safety
primarily. Guilt, intrigue, deceit, cruelty, crime, violence and barbarity, then
form the foundation
on which he stands and against which he dreams of leaning for ever.
'self' dominates and makes him mad after power. He does not therefore, take cognizance
of the existence of the same stuff in others, particularly of his accomplices
and confidants, who by now stretch their hands claiming for booty.
