What Is CSR?

Once while walking on a narrow road in Mangalore i saw a few stones kept in a circle… As i went near i saw a manhole without the lid… I stood there thinking some repair work is going on… A man coming out from a nearby house later told… me that someone had taken the lid away (don’t know for what joy) in the night and had kept the stones so that the vehicles get to know that they need to avoid that area… It was all weird… Why would someone take away the lid of a manhole? Why would the thief be so concerned about those who will be traveling that road later? If he was really concerned why did he take away the lid? All questions came to my mind… But with all these questions that day i found a perfect image for CSR… keeping the stones was an act of CSR… shall we give the thief a pat on his back?
