Thought for the day .....
A gentleman was once visiting a temple under
construction. In the temple premises, he saw a
sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he saw, just
a few meters away, another identical idol
was lying. Surprised he asked the sculptor, Do you
need two statutes of the same idol. No said
the sculptor. We need only one, but the first one got
damaged at the last stage. The gentleman examined the
sculptor. No apparent damage was visible. Where is the
damage asked the gentleman. There is a scratch on the
nose of the idol. Where are you going to keep the
idol. The sculptor replied that it will be installed
on a pillor 20 feet high.
When the idol will be 20 feet away from the eyes of
the beholder, who is going to know that there is
scratch on the nose ? The gentleman asked.
The sculptor looked at the gentleman, smiled and said "
The God knows it and I know it ".
The desire to excel should be exclusive of the fact
whether someone appreciates it or not. Excellence is a
drive from " Inside " not " Outside".
