हमारे अख़बार में छपा एक बढ़िया दृष्टान्त...
A student asked a teacher, "What is love?"The teacher said, "in order to answer your ,1,1uestion, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back.But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."The student went to the field, going through first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wondered....may be there is a bigger one later.Then he saw another bigger one... but may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he started to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw. He knew he had missed the biggest one, and he regretted.So, he ended up going back to the teacher with empty hand. The teacher told him, "...this is love... you keep looking for a better one, but when later you realise, you have already missed the person....""What is marriage then?" the student asked.The teacher said, "in order to answer your ,1,1uestion, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."The student went to the corn field, this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake. When he reached the middle of the field, he picked one medium corn and came back to the teacher.The teacher told him, "this time you bring back a corn.... you look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get.... this is marriage."
