- You are working as field anthropologist among a remote tribe where blood feud is a common practice. You are staying at a place from where you can have a clear look at the day-to-day activities of these tribal people. The group trusts you and a bond has been established between you and them. They have allowed you to stay among them due to immense trust and love for you. One night, you hear loud noises of men fighting each other. You witness a powerful young man killing another one with his machete. Immediately you note down every incident of the night in your notebook. The body of the dead is carried and funeral is held, where the killer is allowed to participate. Next day, unlike any other day, police visit the tribal hamlet and start investigating the murder. You come to know that the brother of the dead man, the only person ever to get formal basic education in this tribal group and the one who used to assist you in field studies, had walked all the night to nearby police station and had complained against the man who had killed his brother. When the police enquire whole hamlet, everyone denies the murder having taken place or having witnessed one. The police come to you and seek information regarding the murder.
Will you tell the truth and lose the trust of the tribe? What options do you have here? Discuss. (250 Words, 20M)
