The problem with we Indians is that we have larger than life egos.
We are incompetent to absorb remarks made in lighter vein though we pretend to be comfortable with them.That’s the reason why sense of humour or wholehearted laughter has gone missing from our lives,making us turn into caricature of sorts who may boast of hi-fi lifestyle but deep within are nothing but mass of emptiness.
We have nothing in our lives apart from our stupid ego..Ego of achievements..Ego of knowledge..Ego of hi-fi lifestyle..Ego Of Money. The list is endless..The death comes and wipes out all the egos in one go..
However,learning right lessons is not the habit of Indians… Their flirtations with ego gains momentum with each passing day,with each passing moment …This is sad state state of affairs in nation that boasts of being a “knowledge oriented” nation !!!
“When I had little knowledge, I had become blind by pride like an elephant (during rut). Then my mind was proud , thinking that I am an omniscient. As and when I realized bit by bit in the association of wise men, my pride waned like a fever, as I came to know that I was a fool, actually.”
