DP Daily Prompt:Imperfection Posted by Ranu

Imperfection is something common in all of us,sports,studies, music etc..I do not think  I  was perfect in any of these.I would therefore relate a story of my brother. He was the best student in his class.He did well in all the subjects.His name was the first one in the teacher’s register.

In the last  high school exam ,he hoped to get the top marks and remain number one in the register.Before he left to go to school he asked me to pray for him,so that he is not second. When he didn’t come home right away,I was concerned,maybe it’s bad news.I tried hard not to think,but I couldn’t stop. Hours later he came home, his friends brought him home.He came into his room and lay down in his bed,he cried like a baby.It took three days to get over his disappointment. To him this was a deep scar in his progress report.His classmate didn’t score big,he only got one mark more than him. I felt my brother would finally learn to take this kind of disappointment bravely. This tiny imperfection made him human.I was happy  that he in future years,will learn from this. I always cherished this scar of his. It was the kind of lesson,he needed to learn.”They say failure is the pillar of success”.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this.

    I would rather be human than perfect. Achieving the first one is difficult enough :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert

  3. Most things I have learned in life came through experiences that didn’t work out as I hoped. Today I don’t try to be perfect but aim to do the best that I can 🙂
