Learn and earn story 12

Chuan and Jing joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. Both worked very arduous(hard,कठिन).
After several years, the boss promoted Jing to sales executive but Chuan remained a sales rep. One day Chuan could not take it anymore, tender resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who cajole(flattered,चापलूसी करना) him.
The boss knew that Chuan worked very hard for the years, but in order to help Chuan realize the distinction(difference,भेद) between him and Jing, the boss asked Chuan to do the following. Go and find out anyone selling water melon in the market? Chuan returned and said yes. The boss asked how much per kg? Chuan went back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss the $12 per kg.
Boss told Chuan, I will ask Jing the same question? Jing went, returned and said, boss, only one person selling water melon. $12 per kg, $100 for 10 kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are verdant(fresh,ताज़ा) and red, good quality.
Chuan was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and Jing. He decided not to resign but to learn from Jing.
My dear friends, a more successful person is more circumspective(observant,चौकन्ना), think more and perceive(understand,समझना) in depth. For the same matter, a more successful person sees several years ahead, while you see only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365 times, how could you win?
Think! how far have you seen ahead in your life? How contemplative(thoughtful,विचारशील) in depth are you?

Story: Baby Camel and Mother story 11

A mother and a baby camel were lying around, and fortuitously(suddenly,एकायक) the baby camel asked, “mother, may I ask you some questions? Mother said, “Sure! Why son, is there something bothering you? Baby said, “Why do camels have humps?” Mother said “Well son, we are desert animals, we need the humps to store water and we are known to survive without water”. Baby said, “Okay, then why are our legs protracted(long.लम्बा) and our feet rounded?” Mother said, “Son, obviously they are meant for walking in the desert. You know with these legs I can move around the desert better than anyone does!” Baby said, “Okay, then why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes it bothers my sight”. Mother with hubris(pride,गौरव) said, “My son, those long voluminous(thick,मोटा) eyelashes are your vindicatory(protective,रक्षात्मक) cover. They help to intercede(protect,रक्षा करना) your eyes from the desert sand and wind”.

 Baby after thinking said, “I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the desert then what in god’s name are we doing here in the Zoo!?”

 Moral: deftness(Skills,कौशल), knowledge, abilities and experiences are only germane(useful,सार्थक) if you are at the pertinent(right,सही) place.
