Netra,

I dunno whether Geeta ka Gyan is exact. Ill tell ya a story. There was a guy called Shringarey. When he was young, he got a job in a steel mill. He was subject to a lot of contempt. A person younger to him and not as brainy (at least thats what Shring thought then) was appointed as his boss. The boss was arrogant and foolish too. Shring was furious. He wanted to rebel.

Shring had an uncle. The uncle forbade Shring to do that. Write a memo to "Allah" was what the uncle said. Write down your case. "What will it do?" "Just write it down!!" So Shring began to write down how his younger boss was arrognt. He thought and thought late into the night - but he could not logically say ONE CASE where his boss was arrogant. With a shock, Shring realized that his boss was NOT arrogant, but that, he, Shring was jealous!! Shring cried that nite and he cried and cried.

Slowly Shring realized that his boss looked at things differently. Shring was bothered in meeting his production quota, boss was bothered with reducing costs, increasing sales. Shring was working for Rs 1000 pm working to get a raise. Boss was working for the company. He learnt that boss had better educatipon. That his boss's contacts did not come from heaven, but were assiduusly collected using scientific principles (Rolodex, Maggon, etc). Shring was humilitaed. But Allah converted his humiliation to humility. Shring learnt. And got advanced degrees.

In a matter of 3 yrs, Shring was away in NY dancing with sexy blondes in Blue Lagoon!!

Case is rested

Shring
