BLAMING NEEDS WISDOM
Once a ship got caught in a violent storm. It wrecked and the waves cast it’s wrecks on the sands of the shore. Among them was a sailor who lay senseless on the beach. When he came to his senses, he cursed the sea saying, “The sea is a cheat indeed. It attracts people with it’s cool and calm waters and once they are in it’s grip, it turns furious and destroys them.”
Hearing his reproach, the sea felt pinched. But it didn’t want to trouble the sailor anymore. So, it came to the sailor in form of a damsel.
“Who are you, O lovely lady?” asked the sailor.
“I am the sea and am as lovely as you see me now. You are blaming me for the wreck but it isn’t just.”
Surprised, the sailor asked, “Who is just then?”
The sea urged, “The wreck was caused by the cruel winds that blew into gusts and gales over me and created stormy waves in my calm waters.”
The sailor had nothing to say except feeling sorry.
