Two men happened to meet, when admitted in the same hospital room. One of them had his bed beside the window sill and thus could see the world outside. The other one was next to the wall and could see nothing except the four walls that made the room. This one used to ask the other, near the window, what he could see outside.
He was always overwhelmingly happy to answer…. And would say… “there’s a garden down there with beautiful flowers, a small pond with swans… You could see Little kids spilling out of their homes… Men selling chats, pakodas” and his description goes on…
Their conversation about that lovely world continued for days until when one fine morning.. The man who saw the world got discharged. .
After bidding good bye to his fellow friend, he asked the nurse to shift him to the bed near the window.
With wide open eyes he looked out to see the lovely world. . But astonishingly there was just a huge compound wall outside.. No Park, no pond, no kids…!!!!
Curiously he asked the nurse, what had happened to the park outside which his friend had seen till yesterday.. The nurse replied “you mean the one who just got discharged..! He was a blind man..”..
Beauty lies in one’s heart not eyes..
The world is all about how you take it.. Not how it comes to you…
