What comes around goes around
Karma is a phenomena found in Indian religions (Hinduism and Buddhism for example) which in Sanskrit translates to the fact that the action or deed causes the cycle of cause and effect. In other words, what goes around comes around (or vice versa).
Some are cynical regarding Karma as in they argue that many tread on another for their own personal or monetary gain and nothing untoward seems to happen to them.
This may be the case.
To bring Karma into the modern-day perspective I lost/left a relatively expensive personal CD player on the bus (from Stoke Station to Newcastle) and nobody handed it in.

A few weeks later on another bus I found an expensive mobile telephone and immediately handed it to the by now frantic teenager looking desperately around for it.
Thanking me profusely and exclaiming that 'my mum would have killed me'. It has to be the right thing to do to hand back another's property.
But what is the conservative estimate in our modern-day culture today regarding who would hand in a lost item and who would not, 50-50 maybe?
Older people are more likely (one supposes) to hand in a lost/found item.
Then why, do you imagine, some keep people's property that does not belong to them and what does stealing by finding say about the society that we live in?
What is known is that if you do a good turn for another a good turn has more chance of coming back in return.
Well, let's look at the law of Karma in the aforementioned case. Having lost the personal CD player it could have been reasoned by some that the found mobile telephone was compensation for the lost/stolen CD player; as in it evened the scores.
It appears that some people's lives are governed by the 'I'll have you off; you have me off' warped and negative sense of Karma.
