A king wanted to build a temple.
He asked his sculptor to make a beautiful statue of a deity.
The sculptor went around in search of a rock which is perfect
for the task.
He finalized two rocks and asked the first rock, “Will you
permit me to carve a beautiful Godess out of you?”
The 1st rock cried alound,”No, no, no. You will start hurting
me with your hammer and chisel. It hurts. And I can’t bear
the pain. Please leave me alone.”
The man said, “But you are better in quality than the next one I
chose. Once I am finished, you will be put on a pedestal and will
be woshipped for thousands of years. It’s short term pain for a very
long term of reverance, respect. I suggest you accept my offer.”
The 1st rock didn’t budge. It said, “No way you can hurt me with your
hammering. Leave me alone.”
The sculptor went to the 2nd rock and asked the same question…
The 2nd rock said, “Wow, I am honored. How many rocks can
have this privilege?
To be a God and getting worshipped by crowds
of people for years to come. Thank you Mr.Sculptor. Go ahead and
carve me in to a God. I give you my permission.”
The sculptor started chiselling the 2nd rock in to a beautiful Godess
and the king built the temple and the 2nd rock became a revered Godess
and till today getting worshipped by thousands and thousands of people.”
The sculptor didn’t use his hammer and chisel on the first rock. But
as it was flat and good for flooring, put it in front of the Godess for
worshippers to break their coconuts.
Now the 1st rock, realized it’s folly.
While the 2nd rock now transformed in to a Godess was getting worshipped,
garlanded, reverred, the first rock was getting hammered with thousands
and thousands of coconuts by worshippers.
For a short term pain, the 2nd rock became a deity and found her place on a pedestal, while the 1st rock became a non-entity, trampled by the feets of the devotees, hit
and hurt everyday with coconuts getting broken on it.
That is life.
When you are young, with good education, good mentorship you can be
sculpted in to becoming a icon, a man/woman of respect and you can find
People who don’t want to make sacrifices will end up as the 1st rock in the story.
Pay your price and get your place on the pedestal.
Or get comfortable, avoid pain, avoid hardships and you will be unconconfortable,
get hurt, face all hardships when you are old.
The choice, the youths of this world, is in your hands.
Defer your pleasures of today for a better tomorrow.
Or else, from ground up you will be looking at these faces 🙂
