The Game of Ego


              

There is a story about Dr. Radhakrishnan.

                                                     

He was the president of India and he was talking to a few friends.

One white man said, "We are the best - otherwise why did God make us white?"

Radhakrishnan smiled at him and said, "You are half-cooked, that's why you are white!"

A black man was also present there and was very happy at this. Immediately he said, "That's right. We are the best!"

Radhakrishnan replied, "You are cooked too much ... almost burnt! In fact, we are the best. We are just in the middle, neither white nor black. Cooked just right."

Moral of the Story ....

Friends, people go on trying to defend their egos in every possible way. Most of us are playing the same game in the name of religion, in the name of nation, race, color, etc. but the game is the same. The name of the game is ego.




However beautiful they are, roses are not proud, lotuses are not proud. The sunrise, the sunset, the night full of stars or the full moon is not proud. It is just natural,  there is nothing to brag about it.

This is how the life should be....!   !
