WHO KNOWS... ?
A Mulla Nasrudin Story
Retold By VIKRAM KARVE
One day the young village teacher told Mulla Nasrudin that he had decided to travel across the world to seek additional knowledge.
When the young man asked Nasrudin what kind of people he should look for, Mulla Nasrudin recalled some wise words he had once heard from his elders:
He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, is a fool.
He who knows not and knows that he knows not, is a child.
He who knows and knows not that he knows, is asleep.
He who knows and knows that he knows, is wise.
Then Mulla Nasrudin paused for a moment and said:
“But you know how difficult it is to be sure that the one who knows and knows that he knows, really knows.”
Think, Reflect, and have a good laugh.
