Harness the goodness from every activity

In this article, we try to bring out the importance of learning to take the good things that comes our way in life. The story is a real incident that describes how a hurting incident can be converted into a boon.

There are many ways by which life's message is explained to kids. All our stories in mythology, literature and folk-lores intend to teach some kind of a moral that will be of help in the real life challenges. Some of these stories are real happenings that occurred in the past and sometimes they are born out of imagination. In this section, is being detailed a real-life incident that carries an important message.

Before we proceed to read the story, imagine how we tend to face any humiliation that is meted out to us? No matter how small or big we may be, we don't tolerate any kind of ill-treatment. Now just read-on to see what happened in the life of Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya.

Born during the British regime, Pandit Malviya was brought up with the undying spirit to fight for India's independence. He was an ardent freedom fighter and always aspired to see India as one of the super-power in the field of education. His dreams took to wings when he naturally started out on his mission to fulfill his desire. But towards this journey, he had to seek the help of many people. So he traveled throughout the length and breath of the country and met different philanthropists, kings and other luminaries.

During one such occasion he came to the court of Nizam of Hyderabad. The Nizam, for some reasons did not like the idea of Malviya to start with an University. As Malviya tried to convince the Nizam, the Nizam unable to tolerate Malviya anymore, threw his sandals at Malviya. The whole court room was muted with shock. But Malviya without losing his temper, just picked up the sandals that were hurled at him. He even thanked the Nizam gently and walked out. Straight he went to the market place and guess what he did!!!!He auctioned the sandals and with the money collected through the auction went ahead with his mission to erect the educational institution.

Thus was born the Banaras Hindu University, which is one of the world's best institution today.

So whenever we come across the name BHU, never forget the way it was born and the important message for us - to take the positive out of everything that comes our way and not be let down with humiliations.
