Last night I saw Bengali film 'kharij'. Mrinal Sen made this film in 1982. It is about how middle class families exploit the poor and have 10-12 year old boys as as their domestic servants. The domestic servant dies of carbon monoxide while sleeping in the kitchen.
What struck me was a matter of fact statement by a senior advocate, who the family appraoches,that 'legal lie must prevail over moral truth'.
