Good One..

Forwarded by Aysha again... I liked this one a lot and felt it must be shared.
There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning CORN. Each year
he entered his CORN in the state fair where it won honour and prizes.

Once a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something interesting
about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn
with his neighbours'.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they
are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.

"Why sir, "said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from the
ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow
inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade
the quality of my corn.

If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn
cannot improve unless his neighbour's corn also improves. So it is in the other

Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbours and colleagues to
be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well. The
value of a life is measured by the lives it touches .

Success does not happen in isolation. It is very often a participative and
collective process.
