Chapter 1 - Three Questions Excercise 15
(ii) I didn't notice any serious difference of opinion among the debaters, although they differed from one another over small points.
(iii) It's a fairly simple question to answer, but will you accept my answer as final?
(iv) It isn't necessary that necessity should always be the mother of invention.
(v) Hermits are wise men. How they acquire their wisdom no one can tell.
(vi) The committee has decided to make Jagdish captain of the team. The decision is likely to please everyone.
(vii) Asking for forgiveness is as noble as willingness to forgive.
(i) The bearded man was an enemy of the king. The king had put the man's brother to death and had also seized his property. That is why he wanted to take revenge on the king.
(ii) The man knew that the king had gone alone to see the hermit and so had made up his mind to kill him on his way back home. When the king did not return he left his hiding place, but the king's bodyguard recognised him and thus, wounded him. He managed to escape, but would have died if the king had not taken care of him and dressed his wounds. Ironically, he was saved by the very person whose life he wanted to take. That is why he asked for the king's forgiveness.
In answer to the first question, the hermit said that there is only one time that is important and that time is 'Now'. It is the only time when one has any power to act.
The hermit answered the second question by saying that the most necessary person is the person you are with at a particular moment. This is because no one knows what will happen in the future and whether we will meet anyone else.
The hermit's response to the third question was that the most important thing is to do good for the person one is with. This is because all are sent into this world for that purpose alone.
All the answers are linked to each other and have their own significance. As a famous author once said “I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
