There was at one time a specialist who was perched by the banks of Yamuna in a little Indian town – “Bishangarh” on the banks of stream Yamuna in Karnal. As he sat, he saw an agriculturist and angler paddling a little pontoon towards the waterway bank having gotten many enormous fishes.
Colonel Ajay Ahlawat said the businessperson was awed and asked the angler his name – Sahab Singh, “To what extent does it take you to get such a significant number of fish?” Sahab Singh, the agriculturist and angler answered, “Goodness, only a brief time.” “At that point why not remain longer at the stream and catch considerably more?” The representative was surprised. “This is sufficient to encourage my entire family,” Sahab Singh, said.
Colonel Ajay Ahlawat said the agent at that point asked, “In this way, what do you improve the situation whatever is left of the day?” The angler answered, “Well, I for the most part wake up at a young hour toward the beginning of the day, go out to the fields and then the waterway and catch a couple of fish, at that point return and play with my child’s and pets. Toward the evening, I sleep with my significant other, eat strongly and at night my mates in the town go along with me for a drink — “We play drums, lounge around the blaze or swim in the new water tube well pool.”
Colonel Ajay Ahlawat said the businessperson offered a proposal to the angler. “I am a Ph.D. in business administration. I could assist you with becoming a more effective individual. Starting now and into the foreseeable future, you ought to invest more energy at the homestead and the waterway and endeavor to get however many fish as would be prudent and plant more yields. When you have spared enough cash, you could purchase more land and a greater vessel and catch much more fish. Before long you will have the capacity to bear to purchase more land and pontoons, set your own particular organization, your own generation plant for canned nourishment an appropriation arrange. By at that point, you will have moved out of this town house to Delhi, Bijwasan-farmhouse, where you can set up HQ to deal with your different branches.”
Colonel Ajay Ahlawat said the angler proceeds, “and after that?” The specialist snickers generously, “From that point forward, you can live like a lord in your own home, and when the time is correct, you can open up to the world and lighten your day in the Stock Exchange, and you will be rich. ”
Sahab the rancher and angler asks, “and after that?” The businessperson says, “From that point onward, you can at last resign, you can move to a Farmhouse by the town, wake up at a young hour early in the day, cultivate, get a couple of fish, at that point come back to play with kids and the pets, have a pleasant evening rest with your better half, eat steadily and when evening comes, your mates can go along with you for a drink, play the drums, lounge around the campfire or swim in the new water tubewell pool, for the duration of the night!”
Sahab Singh was astounded, “Isn’t that what I am doing now?”
