How is honesty of a person living in a country related to his Religion and spiriyuality?
A Worldwide survey was conducted by the company ‘Non existent & no Limited’. The only question asked was:
'Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?'
The survey was a huge failure because,
In Africa they didn't know what 'food' meant,
In India they didn't know what 'honest' meant,
In Europe they didn't know what 'shortage' meant,
In China they didn't know what 'opinion' meant,
In the Middle East they didn't know what 'solution' meant,
In South America they didn't know what 'please' meant,
And in the USA they didn't know what 'the rest of the world' meant!
spiriyuality = spirituality
In the Tid-bits (thanks to Sharmili for the answer and correction, you are cute!)
The countries are choosen as near equivalent and it seems is not intentional.
No survey was conducted and this is known by the name of the company, 'Non existent & no Limited’.
All my well vishers are answering the question and I can go to the second aspect of asking this question.
THe second part is on honesty with R&S
Our Honesty is in the acid test now. As Mangalam and Veers opinion We had a glorious past.
Rapter got the LOL part correctly and add one tail to it to enjoy! That is the spirit. To enjoy the words play. All in a light vein.
Godseye and Narendra not only got the LOL and gave answers for the second part also.
Crinson added a related matter.
I feel asking question is very difficult!
I find answering is relatively easy!!
So depends on the question he presents his views.
Thanks to all the answerers.
Haritha sir (elder in age) takes the question seriously and started giving solutions.

Pad and Veers have dealt some aspects on honesty, spiritual and Religion.
There are two words in Sanskrit to mean corruption.

Vedas talks much on honesty and corruption indirectly. The following are some of them;
Rig Veda:1-42-3, 1-104-3, 3-34-6, 5-61-8
Sukla Yajur Veda: 30-22
Sama Veda: Hymns, 179 & 913
I appreciate your Curiosity. I can explain with my thinking. Please correct if I am wrong because this is not taken from our scripts as for as my knowledge goes!
Yes, Religion is like a boat. Spirituality is rowing. Guru is the driver of the boat and Guru is the commander. All are rowing with two oars. Two oars are faith and determination. Our aim is to cross the ocean, our Janma. The other side is liberation. After crossing, what is the need for the boat? Religion is man made and it is a tool only.
One may think that he need not have the above and may try to swim! This swimming is Spirituality.
