Few Lessons for Life…

Writing after a gap of more than 7 months. Life,Work and Travel has kept me busy. It’s good to be back and continuing from were I left…

Some stories I have read/heard from various places/people. Don’t know the real authors. Just sharing them…

Story 2All are significant

During my second month of management school, our professor gave us an exam. I breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was thin, dark-haired and in her 40s, but how would I know her name? I never felt a need to interact with her. I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our exam grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. "In your life and careers, you will meet many people. All are significant.

They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'Hello, How are you doing'."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also found out her name was Uma.
