While training, when the examiner said, “I shall fail you.” Guruji joined as Asst. Soil Scientist and went on a training camp.
He used to do Seva even at the camp, where He had gone for training for Soil Survey and it would seem like He were chatting with the people. This was noticed by the incharge of the camp. One day he suggested Guruji that He should concentrate towards His training instead of talking with the people all the time. Perhaps, this is what he thought. Actually, he had little idea of what Guruji was doing and as a result got annoyed. Ultimately, he challenged Guruji and said that he shall fail Him in the final exams.
The final exams came, all sat in the hall to take the test. The officer, watched Guruji very closely and was stunned to see that Guruji was writing consistently and the answers were absolutely correct. He could not understand as to how this was possible, when he knew that Guruji had not studied at all.
In frustration, the examiner told the others, “Ok, I will see how He gets through the Practicals”. The Practical test relates to the identification of stones. A few stones are placed on a table and the students would be asked to identify them, whether it was a sand stone or a lime stone and so on….., But when it was Guruji’s turn, the examiner messed up the entire lot of stones thinking that it would be impossible for Guruji to identify each one.
It was amazing when he asked Guruji to identify and Guruji correctly identified all. He was spell bound .The result was declared and Guruji passed with flying colours getting the 2nd Position in the batch.
I enthusiastically asked , “Guruji, why 2nd and not the 1st. Position?”
Guruji suddenly became serious and said’, Beta, “There was a boy, who had been standing 1st. always in his career. I did not like to spoil his record in life.”
* Without studying even a day Guruji attains the 2nd Position.
* Without knowing the stones he identified them as if the stones spoke.
* Caring and considerate for a fellow student more than his own fame and….
