As we grow older and wiser we begin to see things as a whole rather than as in our younger days. When we are younger we focus on partial truths..
For example, we focused on the few successful people who had been school dropouts and contrasted them with the failures who had completed school. Why did we not contrast successful people who had completed school with failures who dropped out of school?
Another example is…
…we felt Rabindranath Tagore was an advocate of action against prayer and chanting when he said, “Leave this prayer and chanting….” It will be far from the truth if we say that Tagore was not a man of prayer and contemplation.
His words are rightly addressed to those who do only prayer and chanting in a ritual fashion and are not concerned about the hardworking and the poor. His lines are written not as a support to people who shun prayer and escape contemplation.
