He has an inhuman ludicrous exterior. Unlike his exterior, when the coin was flipped to tails, it was beautiful. A creature created with a blank slate, even though he was abandoned and wasn’t taught the human basics he observed the people in the village and taught himself. He was compassionate yet scorned. “Unfeeling, heartless creator! You had endowed me with perceptions and passions, and then cast me abroad an object for the scorn and horror of mankind”. He just wanted to be accepted like everybody else was. He had good intentions and that was shown when he helped the girl that almost drowned but because of his appearance he was rewarded with beating and scorn.

When our parents and teachers brief us about it in our childhood days and try to instill these qualities in us, it is up to the individual to imbibe them at the same time. In today's fast-paced world, many of these human qualities are left far behind. One of the most important of all human qualities is sympathy. Right from our school days, we are taught to be sympathetic towards others. Being sympathetic…
