Action and consequence: Story of Bali
Action and consequence - Food for thought
The debate whether Bali was punished after following due process of law and justice or through a shortcut will continue.☺️

Chittur Venkatachalaiyer Subbaraman, Mysuru's response:
Mahabali was indeed caught between the devil and the deep sea! When one is fated to face a situation, it cannot be prevented. To suffer a punishment by pleasing the Lord is better than suffering a punishment by disobeying a Guru! Did not Maareecha say similarly, when Ravana threatened to kill him if he did not act as Ravana dictated, for helping him to kidnap Sitadevi? Mareecha felt it was better to die at the hands of Rama than at the hands of Ravana.
