Once upon a time, a boy named Sham lived in a small village Vilaspur. His father used to work hard to run home. Once, father of Sham took him to the city with him.
As father of Sham got the job of cleaning the big playground. A race competition was to be arranged on that ground.
Seeing the huge playground, Sham was very happy that evening. From that day, the passion for the race was ridden in the mind of Sham. On completion of the cleaning work by Dad, he set out to return to the village.
While returning to the village, Sham insisted to Dad, that race competition should be organized in our village too. Then, after coming home, his father went to the village head to fulfil the wish of son.
In front of the village head, he put his opinion on the running competition. Father told the village headman that, if you will arrange this competition then the children of the village will get a chance to show their skills, and the fame of the village will also increase.
The village headman gave his consent. The preparations for this running competition have to start next week. Many children from nearby villages came to participate in this race competition.
Grandfather of Sham was watching all this peacefully. They wanted Sham to try his best to win the competition. Because this competition was very tough. But, the Sham had determined to win the race.
All the children were ready, as soon as the referee whistle, the competing children started running towards the liquidated race line.
Stony roads, small pointy pebbles, intense sunlight overcoming these difficulties, the Sham finally won the race. The whole field buzzed with the sound of the clapping.
After that, the Sham started participating in one competition after another. Sham wins in that each competition. The process of victory was started in the life of Sham.
Only one person is quite unhappy with the situation and that was grandfather of Sham.
Then, one day Grandpa himself organized a special race competition for the Sham. Seeing the race organized, the Sham came to the ground with a joyful heart.
At that time Grandpa told the Sham, “Sham, there are different ways to win each race, think it off and then run.” Sham could not be understood the words of Grandpa.
This time also, so many people from nearby villages came to see the competition. Sham noticed that apart from him in race competition there are only two competitors.
The referee played the whistle, immediately the Sham ran towards the race line with full force. While he was about to reach the last stop, he noticed that the remaining participants have not even started running.
Sham noticed that his one competitives is blind, and other is lame. The whole ground now prevails in peace. Sham went back from the last stop and grabbed the hands of other contestants and drove them slowly to the race line.
The three competitors crossed the race line together. Seeing this scene, the entire ground resonated with the applause of audience.
Then, grandfather of Sham said, “Oh! Son, today I am absolutely sure that you are the real winner!”
Moral: It is not necessary to win every race of life. But the person who gets ahead with taking all people together, that person takes a place in heart of everyone.
