There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning CORN. Each
year he entered his CORN in the state fair where it won honour and prizes.

Once a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something interesting
about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his
seed corn with his neighbours'.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when
they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter

"Why sir, "said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from
the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow
inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will
steadily degrade the quality of my corn.

If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn
cannot improve unless his neighbour's corn also improves. So it is in the
other dimensions!

Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbours and colleagues
to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live
well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.

Success does not happen in isolation. It is very often a Participative And
collective process.

So share the good practices, ideas, new learning's with your Family, Team
