The Three Dolls!

A sage presented a prince with a set of three small dolls. Three Dolls
The prince was not amused.

“Am I a girl that you give me dolls?” – He asked.
“This is a gift for a future king,” Said the sage. “If you look carefully, you’ll see a hole in the ear of each doll.”
The sage handed him a piece of string. “Pass it through each doll.” – He said.
Intrigued, the prince picked up the first doll and put the
string into the ear. It Trustcame out from the other ear. “This
is one type of person,” said the sage, “whatever you tell
him, comes out from the other ear. He doesn’t retain
anything.”
The prince put the string into the second doll. It came
out from the mouth. “This is the second type of person,”
said the sage, “whatever you tell him, he tells everybody
else.”
The prince picked up the third doll and repeated the
process. The string did not come out. “This is the third
type of person,” said the sage, “whatever you tell him is
locked up within him. It never comes out.”
“What is the best type of person?” – Asked the prince. The sage handed him a fourth doll, in answer. When the prince put the string into the doll, it came out from the
other ear. “Do it again.” – Said the sage. The prince repeated the process. This time the string
came out from the mouth. When he put the string in a third time, it did not come out at all.
“This is the best type of person,” said the sage. “To be trustworthy, a man must know when not to listen, when to remain silent and when to speak out.”

WOW! I love the moral, to be TRUSTWORTHY. If you want everyone to trust you, then it’s utmost important that you know what to speak out, when to speak out and how to. At times, we need to turn off our listening hears and at times remain silent without commenting. It’s a wise man’s virtue. In one of my schools where I served, Our Principal Arindam Roy Choudhary use to always say, at times when we meet people who repeat their talks or who don’t have any wish to listen to us ttrustworthyhen the best option is turn off your listening ears. 😀 I loved that concept because as teachers we meet various parents and for some its good to use this strategy. We need to be careful of the things that we speak, make sure that it is of some value and doesn’t cause any  bitter damage to the listener. It seems hard but trust me if we practice, ” THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK”, then things gets so simpler. Don’t make life too complicated, its so simple and lovely. Live Life, Don’t just  Exist!

Have a lovely day!
