What is espionage or spying? It is generally described as an act of getting information about a company or a country which is a secret or confidential. It is a terrible thing to do but still many countries and corporates indulge in it for their own benefits. It is almost always against the law and a punishable offence if one gets caught. The people who work as spies are called agents. They are highly trained operatives. However, sometimes innocent people who stray into the other country by mistake, are also considered as agents and severely punished for that.
A very touching real story is that of an indian farmer Sarabjit Singh who wandered into Pakistan. There has been many attempts made by his family to get him out of the Pakistan jail. But all in vain.
On the lighter side, there are some funny spy movies that you kids will love .
