We have all grown up hearing this story innumerable times – అమ్మ ఒడిలో గోరుముద్దలు తింటూ లెక్క లేనన్ని సార్లు విన్న కథ – bed time story, lunch/dinner time story etc., etc., etc.,
I always try to remember the flow of the story whenever I hear the story. More concentration on the memory – to remember the step after step. But never thought of that it was a story of excuses and explanations for not doing a thing(s).
A great insight into the story was given by Nagarjuna on the third episode of Meelo Evaru Koteswarudu (MEK) hosted by Nagarjuna on Maa TV. I got very excited and thrilled to hear this. I would have felt the same way if I heard this explanation from anyone. For a few moments I even felt ashamed of not being able to see the story in this perspective ever in my entire life.
– We can come up with 100 reasons for not doing a task. but to get that thing done, we need only one reason – our sankalpam (resolution), our attempt !
