Several years back Mr. Taleem Yafta (The Educated Person) was very famous for his knowledge and good speech. Once he was requested to deliver a lecture in a rural area. Mr. Taleem-Yafta went to his teacher Mr. Siana (Mr.Wisdom) and informed him that he will be visiting this village for the sermon.
“How will you go “I shall take the bus and then I shall have to walk for 15 minutes in the fields to reach the village where some people will be waiting for me to take me to the rest home” ” In the fields
there might be guard dogs taking care of sheep flock so they might harm you” “Then I shall keep a stone with me to scare” “You won’t be able to control them with a stone; only one dog will run away when you throw the stone but rest of the dogs will attack you” “Then I shall take a big wood or tree branches to scare them” “They might be 4-5 dogs and it will be hard for you to control all of them” The teacher replied: “without disturbing any dog just go to the sheep flock boy and ask him that you want to cross the fields and he will assist you with assurance of no harm to you from any of his dogs” For most of our problems we, the educated people, start making our own assumptions and logics to find the solutions. Sometimes we find good solution but in reality better solutions also exist for the same problem but we are not aware of those because of less knowledge or experience. Also we do not consider the real root of the issue, nor we consider taking advice from the relevant people.
