Have you noticed the mind set of children while going to school and returning from the school? While going to school they are disciplined. They go with an aim and they seem to behave well. The same children while coming after school are different. They are more relaxed and seem to have no discipline.
One day a bunch of boys were coming after school. They saw an old man wearing new shoes. They decide to play a trick on him and get the new shoes from the old man. They started a conversation cunningly with him, “Sir, you seem to be a very smart person, please teach us how to climb this tree”.
The old man was a little confused and surprised. He noticed that all the boys were looking at his new footwear. Therefore, he kept the footwear tucked into his waist and started to climb the tree. One of the boys even asked him to leave the footwear down, as it could be a bother to him. The old man said it was not a bother at all and went up the tree.
He came down knowing they were not interested to learn how to climb a tree. He told them with a chuckle, “Boys, you are only studying to get an education. I have the experience.”
Experience is the best education.
