Still honesty is the best policy

Once a general manager wanted to test his people, who had come from all over India, about their values of life. He announced that in their seminar folder, there was a PVC pouch and in it a seed. When they return, they must put the seed in a pot with good soil and look after it very well. He would hold a competition at the next year's seminar and that the best plants would be awarded suitably.

Everyone did what was told to him. A year passed quickly. And next year in a big hall, a great scene! There were hundreds of pots and a great variety of plants - all except one. In this one pot was soil, but no plant! The owner of the pot was standing quietly and seemingly ashamed of himself.

The general manager called him on the stage. He asked him what happened and he told him the truth. He planted the seed, which he was given, and did what was to be done - but nothing happened.

The general manager declared him the winner!

Everyone was shocked.

It was announced, "Gentlemen! The seeds I gave you were boiled seeds. You planted them and nothing happened! You acted smartly and used some other seeds. This man was honest to his work and therefore, he did not cheat me or himself!"

Very inspiring story, Dear Aryan. And thank you, Vandana for such value-addition. I've always thought, replies should add value to a post like the way your reply has.

Replying, for me, is as serious a business as writing article. My self is reflected through my words. That's why I try to be careful with my words.

Very Nice Post.....

But i am worried...Dont know whether you noticed or not...Out of 100 there was only 1 honest person...Does not sound so good...Does it??

Honesty is being honest to your self, to your values, to your country and countrymen...It does not cost much...yes we do face few diffculties by being honest like the person did by working so hard on that fake seed, but ultimately reaped the real reward of being honest. 

We all will face lots of difficulties by being honest but rest assured the fruit willl be much sweeter.

After long time heard a great story, but agreed with Sanjay Sir, out of 100, only one is honest,

these days, if we find one honest person, it means a lot,

Funny part of the story is boss himself lied to test his employees' honesty, all the workers thought, Boss is always right, and opted to put the other seeds, and one honest person proved his boss is wrong. Really this story hides many lessons in it, raises questions too...

Thanks Aryan, for sharing
