Realization!

I came across the below quote today. It resonated with an event that dates back to December 2007 when I made a cool-fool of myself!

Realization!

In December 2007, I was driving from Rajkot to Ahmedabad via my classic Honda City Car. While driving, the objects from the glass looked fuzzy.

I thought maybe the glass is unclean so I cleaned the glass, still it looked fuzzy.

Then I thought the front-glass might have become old so I must change it.

I came back to Rajkot and I got the glass changed for ₹ 7500/-

The other day, I had to drive to Ahmedabad again. Even on that day, the objects looked fuzzy from the front-glass!

I was wondering what was wrong. Then I realized if I had got any eye-numbers.

I got my eyes examined the next day and I got -2.25 numbers!

I got my first numbered glasses and from then on, everything looked clear.

Note to self:

  1. When we face any adverse situation, we tend to believe that it is someone else’s fault, but most of the time, that’s not the case.
  2. When we are quick in execution, we may often pay the price for the lack of depth.
  3. It is better to question our own actions (and non-actions) first and then to anyone else.

On Ignorance

“When you are ignorant, you never think of yourself as ignorant!”

Some of us are 100% sure that they are not ignorant.

They will continue to remain ignorant.

Some of us know that they are ignorant, they confess it and then feel good about the confession.

They will continue to remain ignorant forever. 

Only a few of us work relentlessly to discover our own ignorance, do not feel good or bad about our ignorance, and take the next step to educate ourselves.

They are the kind of humans who remain relevant in the always-changing time.

Who are you?
