Dr. Shankar Narayan, an authourity on the subject & author of books on soil, took me to a corner and said, “Rajpaul, I want to share with you something personal.
The other day, there was a conference in my office and all the officers were there and some stones were being discussed. The agenda was the identification of different stones lying in a lot on a table. I pointed to a stone and identified it as lime stone, but Guruji said, no Dr. Sahib, (as Guruji addressed him in the office) it is sand stone. Being an authority, he was sure about it being lime stone, but thinking, he may displease Guruji, he agreed with Guruji (not agreeing heartily).
At the end of the day, when the meeting was about to disperse, it was announced as sand stone and Dr. Narayan agreed on the stone being sand stone.
Shankar Narayan said, “Rajpaul, I have been studying about soil all my life and am known to be correct always, but it is proven that Guruji is the only knower of facts and truth.” Dr.Narayan said, “My experience, my study and my authority failed me before Guruji, hats off to Him Raj Paul.”
“He and only He is……., the knower of truth and reality. Our knowledge can betray us at any time. But Rajpaul, Guruji is always right.”
