Image
Years ago a man named "Hathi" was living my neighboring village. He was very strong in physical. There were no public transport that time nor do the people have money to afford.  One day "Hathi" went to see some of his relatives around twenty miles away. While coming back to home he saw a heavy stone used for mixing & grinding home construction material. He planned to carry it to his village. So he lifted it on his shoulder and brought to his village. Near to his house there was a Panchyat Ghar. Lot of aged people sit there in the evening for "Hooka." When he was passing through they called him asked for "Hooka." Saying that he is coming from a long distance and have some water and rest. Tomorrow will place it at the right place.

The monthly wage of my mother was rupee three hundred at that time. It was offered by a group of thirty people. I had to collect the money from them. Many of them were not giving in time. For ten rupee I had to them for several times, two third of them were paying after almost two or three months later. Then it became very difficult to tell them when they had paid last. One day one gentlemen among them had asked me to make a list and hand over to him saying “I will collect from everyone and hand over to me” I was very assured on his saying. But after few days he turned back and told me that he could not arrange time to meet every one and hand over the list to me with some money. He also assured me if someone is asking to come again then he will pay for him. Then I understood the saying “Going through the motions of blabbing about your goals is much different than putting that first foot forward and stepping towards your goals.” The power is in the doing, not in the talking.
